Or course, during the Royal Wedding week, all the British press was thrilled to be giving their spin on the jolly nuptials. Cristen and I had so much fun going through all the papers and some of the early magazines. Hang on, and I'll give you a glimpse of what they had to say.
The day before, the military had a practice at dawn,
and we all studied the parade route that was in the Thursday paper.
The Times had its typical "no frills" coverage
but all the other papers relished in their descriptive and amusing headlines.
At every turn, there was talk of a "knees-up," which just refers to a lively party, usually with dancing!
Along the parade route, we all participated in The Wave as we call it in America, but in Britain, it is called The Mexican Wave.
They all fell in love with Pippa,
and she was referred to "Her Royal Hotness" in more than one report.
Didn't take long for rumors of sparks between Harry and Pippa
Many comments about the clothing filled the papers, especially Kate's beautiful wedding dress which was compared here to Grace Kelly's.
Then there were the winners and the losers in the fashion world.
"Sure those hats were wise, ladies?"
"Maybe Posh thought she was at a funeral", referring to Victoria Beckham's frock,
and then there was great fun picking out the "style queens" and the "court jesters!"
Reports from the Middleton's home town party.
The Day After reports,
including stories of the Middleton's going home with their pockets a little less full.
Somehow The Mail acquired all the horseshoes used by the Household Cavalry during the Wedding Parade, and you too, can have a chance at winning one of them!
My favorite headline of all was this one. We've Lost the Empire, Can't Win World Cup, But When It Comes to a Royal Knees-Up, WE'RE GREAT BRITAIN!
So, I have an extra copy of The Sun's Souvenir Edition that was printed the day after the wedding, so if you would like it, I'm going to give it away to one of my readers. Just leave me a comment here before Wednesday, May 11, and I'll pick one of you at random.
If one of my British readers is the winner, I'll happily send you a unique American magazine instead, that you would enjoy, since you probably have your own stack of newspapers too.
