i may as well start a thread on THE wedding. here's a souvenir that will probably be worth big money one day as a collector's item. hah

dumbass chinese...Fox News

LONDON -- It is either a right royal snafu or someone's idea of a joke, but the latest souvenir offering ahead of the April 29 wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton was causing some amusement Wednesday.

Visitors to the website of Guandong Enterprises have the chance to buy a commemorative mug featuring Britain's most famous commoner and the prince she will soon call her ... brother-in-law. "Crafted in the finest bone china" the mug features not William, but his younger brother Harry

While the company's website promises buyers a "beautiful cup" replete with "ornate detailing" on the handle, the maker's keen eye for detail apparently wandered during the research phase of the cup's development.

Unfortunately for the manufacturers, the inscription on the back of the mug -- "The fairytale romantic union of all the centuries. 29th April 2011" -- rings hollow.

I get an extra day off college/work.

Thats all I've got to say about it.

i have to admit a shameful enjoyment of pomp and circumstance, i'll watch the damn thing for the horses and carriages. i like the opening of Parliament too. and trooping the colours. all that traditional regalia is fascinating to some of us who aren't fortunate enough to be there.
i don't like the actual royals themselves, i just like your history-recreating ceremonials.

Meh, all the tourists eat all that shit up, so if its gonna put some fat american dollars into the economy then so be it.

I detest the royal family, tomorrow would be English bastille day if I had my way.

Must love the fact that your tax dollars support them, eh?

i guess that's how they feel in orlando when the Brits come over and throw wads of money at disney's wonderful world of highway robbery.

i'd rather see The Tower than "it's a small world".

They cost me approximately 50 pence a year, and I begrudge every penny.

[b]Oh shit..do we HAVE to? I was hoping this would be the one place I would not have to read about them.

ok I am going to make a comment about this wedding. I remember Lady Di getting married and that was definately something special. The funeral was horrible and i was in tears.

This wedding just isnt doing it for me i am afraid. I got a curt email from one of my friends who said she thinks their great and I am to leave them alone, when I had sent her a link about the mother of the bride instigating her daughter being at the same uni as him. Look, its great they are getting married, but I am just not into it. I hope it lasts I really do. She is terribly underweight.

you can get a kit to knit your own wedding party! corgis included! hah

Among the wealth of tea towels, printed plates and specially forged coins, this unusual souvenir kit has emerged, featuring knitting patterns for ten ‘characters’ from William and Kate’s nuptials.

These include the bride and groom, the Queen and Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams. And, of course, the corgis.
