What Chubbs wore for the Royal Wedding

I meant to post this yesterday, but got a touch distracted...

Two weeks ago when every detail of William and Kate's wedding started overtaking the news (and Entertainment Tonight) I was more than a little annoyed. Why oh why did they want us to care so much? I found myself hoping Charlie Sheen would do something outrageous so that we could hear about something-anything else.

But then as the day approached-I found my curiousity growing. After seeing Kate's face up on my TV screen so many times, I wanted to know how it would end. I wondered what it would be like to have such a public engagement and wedding, and yes, I wanted to see the dress.

So, I watched the wedding-not at 4am, but late last night when I still couldn't sleep because I was a bit wound up. It was beautiful, romantic, and history in the making. I'm glad I took the time to overcome my cynicism.

I was asked if Chubbs wore a tiara for the special day.

No, but so she would fit in with the royal wedding crowd, she did wear:


and she definitely didn't try to throw it across the room, eat it, tear it to pieces, or have a diva like attitude that such a thing was on her head (ok, yes, she did all of those things)

Anyway, I hope you all enjoyed the royal wedding. Beautiful bride, handsome groom-millions of dollars...(I wonder if a multi million dollar wedding makes up for the fact that you can't have it exactly how you want it-so many rigid traditions to follow. (I kept imagining them breaking into the wedding dance as they came down the aisle...you never know-that could have been Kate's dream.)

  1. Chubbs, you are as pretty as a princess, as always. Especially with that smudge of pink lipstick and crown!
    I'd love to see some photos of your pregnant mommy, can you arrange this for me?
