Royal Wedding Run-Up: Well Played, Prince Harry


well-played

Hey, THIS one is still single. I’m just saying, ladies. YOU could be the Kate Middleton in this equation if you act now! ALSO: FYI: We ARE going to be live-blogging the wedding (early early early early) Friday morning — so make sure you come by GFY and get your sleep-deprivation on along with us!

LET’S DO THIS.

    He’s so much cuter and more charismatic than Will. I’m glad Chelsy was invited to the wedding. He seems like a good guy (forgiving the horrid Nazi costume) and it will be interesting to see what he does with his life and William’s children push him further out of the way.

    Best. Post. Ever. I mean, I was already just pretending to work at my desk today, and now…well, now you’ve done it. You’ve also outed me on account of the giggling, but I forgive you, on account of the hawtness. Gah.

    “And THIS is the proper utilization of the jumpsuit, people. Take notes.”
    Maybe he could tell Tyra about that?

    (p.s. LOVE this. He is ridculously cute)

    Oh, the puppy was unfair. I was resistant to his charms, telling myself he’s just a red head with narrow set eyes- and then came the puppy. I completely surrender. Those are some beautiful suits, by the way.

    First off- PHWOAR. And I don’t even feel bad saying this because he is totally in my age group (I HAVE A CHANCE!!!!).

    Second- which broadcast will you be live recapping? Because it seems every network on the planet will be showing it.

    Dear Ancient American Blogger,
    Thank you for all the delightful photos and captions. Please let me know when you want to replace my keyboard b/c it’s now covered in laughter-induced water spray.

    Must go now, Harry is waiting for me on the dock at the end of my desk.

    This may be my new favorite post ever. I love him. Always have, always will. Is it wrong that I’m excited for the wedding tomorrow so I can see how hawt he looks in a tux? (Frankly, I’m hoping for a uniform — rowr!) Oh, I’m so old and pervy…

    My husband and I got into an argument the other day because I said Harry was hot, and he said Harry looks like Alfred E. Neuman from MAD Magazine. I was not pleased with my husband. Not pleased at all.

    Wawaweewah thank you thank you I think I just melted in my desk chair… and I second the commenter’s note about outing themselves with giggling! He’s sexy and adorable and not just because of the royal factor. Rawr.

    Though actually, according to google, Harry was originally a derivative of Henry. Touche, google. Touche.

    He is quite the picture of virility, unlike his brother, who looks much more studious and serious. They make me think of Cor and Corin from The Horse and His Boy, how Corin was totally stoked that he didn’t have to be king because then he’d “be prince forever! And princes have all the fun!”

    Having said that, if he were American, he’d be so frat-tastic, a quality about him which I do NOT find attractive.

    Goodness, that boy is gorgeous. I LOVE the headlines you girls came up with: “That’s right. A puppy.” And, “Sporty!” You’re the best and this post is amazing. Plus, I’m just about 2 1/2 years younger than sexy Prince Harry here, so I totally have a chance. I think I was about 12 when I first started crushing on him. I hope he livens up the wedding a bit – I’m looking forward to seeing him, and Kate’s dress, and… that’s about it.

    I remember when I was going through my teen mag phase I was absolutely upset that Prince Harry was the one who my age, because in my teenage mind you could only like the guy that was the same age as you. Why did the (slightly) older girls get William? I see now that it all turned out for the best. So preteen self, take comfort.

    Also hurray for redheads!

    It is very wrong that I enjoyed looking at those pictures so much. I feel dirty now.

    I used to think Will was the cuter one and Harry was kind of goofy looking, but Harry has definitely grown into his looks and it’s reversed!

    Oh my sweet baby Jesus. Excuse me, I need a minute to recover…

    Between the babies, and the puppies, and the nice suits, and your HILARIOUS commentary, I’ve had just about enough. I am in LLLLLUUUUUUUVVVVVV!!!! Good Lord he seems like he would be a smashing good time! All together, but especially in bed. Oh yes, I went there.

    I’m not sure how I’m going to be productive for the rest of the day…

    And thankfully, I don’t know that I need to sign up for Camp Inappropriate Age Difference, as I’m only 4 1/2 years older. That’s acceptable, right?

    Seriously, I need to concentrate. I have grad school applications to fill out!

    Oh OK, just one more peak at dashingly handsome royal cuddling infants and puppies…SSSQQQQQQUUUUUUUEEEEEEEEE!!!!

    I blame Harry for my weakness for adorable ginger boys with snarky attitudes. I’ve always been a Prince Harry fan, horrible taste in fancy-dress attire aside.

    That said, I think Chelsy Davy looks like a pug. A fit, blonde pug, but a pug nonetheless.

    Ahem. That’s just my blonde-Zimbabwean-billionaire-heiress envy talking.

    I think I prefer Harry-in-Uniform, even to Besuited Harry. He’s got that rugged appeal that Wills totally lacks, IMO.

    Dear sweet snickerdoodles, that post just made my morning. Thank you Jessica and Heather.

    Things I am excited for tomorrow: Harry, Kate’s dress, the fascinators the female guests will be wearing, also Harry.

    I hope there is a camera trained on Harry every moment tomorrow, maybe like a picture in picture? News channels, are you listening?

    See you tomorrow morning! I’ll bring the coffee :)

    @Jess: Good Godfrey, girl! Warn a sister that you’re sending her a Kodak Heart Attack!

    Hot, wears a suit well, appears to love kids, sort of cheeky and mischevious plus charity minded? – whoo boy. Sign me up for CAID.

    Well. I am 10 years older, happily married, and 9 months pregnant. And so, I must call him “charming” and “adorable,” rather than “hot.” Isn’t he charming and adorable?

    I just have to say that I’m very glad I’m only a couple years older than him (I was born only a couple weeks before William, actually) so I have no problem lusting after him. I also love the fact that he just seems like so much fun!

    I must say, CAID is filling up quite nicely. Will we be having mimosa breakfasts, or will we give up the pretense, and have straight vodka with our cornflakes?

    I was scrolling through the comments while calculating exactly HOW dirty and inappropriate the age difference was (I would be old enough to be his mom…if I was a preteen mom) when Dazie’s pic sealed it. A man in uniform, clearly getting a kick out of grandma. Puppies, babies, a lovely drink…and then grandma.

    Sigh…

    Have at it, Fug Nation. Young Harry of the House of Windsor has never floated my boat, filled my sail, blown my skirt up, or invoked any of the other wind-related metaphors I tend to deploy for the likes of Intern George (oh my God I want to lick his face) or JON HAMM, mmmm, mmmm, MMMMM! <3 <3

    I will also be at a Royal Wedding watching party (3:30am my time), but my hostess is requiring formal dress. She also sent out actual, printed wedding invitations, so she is slightly bonkers. I’ll be on a Harry and Carl Phillip-spotting mission.

    yes, like witjunkie said, what is the minimum age for Camp Inappropriate Age Difference?
    I am (i think) about 10 years older but frankly, I dated someone that age last year… it’s not as wide a diff as Ashton/Demi, right? RIGHT?

    and Lynnie has given me an excellent idea! a sequel to or remake of “The Graduate” starring Harry and me! ; )

    He is nice, isn’t he?
    I was at the hairdresser’s yesterday, and we had a rather long conversation about the merits of the princes. We decided that Harry was definitely better looking and seemed like lots of fun, but that it was likely Charles isn’t his father. So there you have it. Because the truth always resides in the mouths of New Zealand hairdressers.

    I’m so glad there are a lot of fellow fuggers admitting inappropriate age differences as they drool. I too am inappropriate in a few ways but feel I should claim my right to Harry as I spotted his hotness waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay before any gossip mag cottoned on. Oh yes, I jumped ship from Wills to Harry sometime just before he became legal. And I have so much to teach him. (Honeykitten- he SMELLS nice? *wilts*)

    I want to like, I really do but the Nazi costume and all… ehhh. Apparently he also told comedian Stephen K Amos that he didn’t ‘sound like a black chappie.’

    Wills is at least steady and not, you know, racist, as far as I can tell.

    You do put together a convincing slideshow (and how much do you want to bet that somewhere in Hollywood, a producer is rubbing his hands together in glee and saying “A reboot of “24″ with a prince?! Genius!”). But like Andrea, I’m having a hard time getting past the Nazi costume thing (although it did give us the most awesome tabloid headline ever, “Harry Pothead”). I think having a grandmother who survived Auschwitz but lost her family makes it impossible for me to appreciate Nazi humor.

    But, serious stuff aside, he is good-looking, and those puppy-little kid pictures are awfully cute.
