It’s Wills and Kate’s wedding anniversary, and while we never really need an excuse to revisit a royal wedding, I’m taking this one anyway. Let’s think of this as the final attempt to ween us from daily Royals Coverage during the recent Royal Tour. It’s a step-down program, you guys. So! All of coverage from day in question can be found here, of course — including our liveblog of the wedding, at which I wore a caftan (sincerely), and which contains so many memories, including “2:51 a.m: KATE IS GETTING INTO THE CAR. SHE IS WEARING WHITE AND A VEIL AND LACE SLEEVES AND !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (We can’t really see it.) (But it seems demure and lovely.) (We can’t wait to get a good look at it.) (Vera Wang is all, ‘There’s a very large skirt.’ No kidding, Vera. ‘You wouldn’t want to wear it to a restaurant.’ REALLY? NO KIDDING VERA. You WOULDN’T want to wear the gown you’re wearing to marry THE FUTURE KING OF ENGLAND to a restaurant.),” which is a comment that, three years later, I still totally stand by. I totally forgot I spent all Royal Wedding Night wanting to smack Vera Wang. But why not take a little walk down memory lane, is what I am saying. Fug Nation does love a good wedding.
PS: For this slideshow, I tried to get pictures that were specifically not in our previous coverage (other than, obviously, The Balcony Kiss That Changed Piers Morgan Forever), but obviously they will probably not SHOCK you with their newness. I did not discover one of Harry, like, secretly snogging Pippa behind an ice sculpture or anything.
(Speaking of snogging, this seems like an excellent place to remind everyone once again and probably not for the last time that Heather and I have a new book coming out next year, right about now (tentatively), the subject of which is very topical to this post. Per Publishers Weekly, it is: “Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan’s first adult novel THE ROYAL WE, about a young American woman who spends a semester abroad in England and falls in love with the man of her dreams — who happens to be the future King of England, a tale loosely inspired by the real-life courtship and marriage of Kate Middleton and Prince William.” [“Loosely,” by the way, is very apt. Stuff gets way fictionalized up in this thing. A giant chunk of which I am supposed to be writing right now, actually. What am I even doing here? Go look at Harry and let me concentrate on this book, you guys.])
