Him: So the last part of our Kate and Will's wedding coverage, huh?
Me: Yup, and there's still one thing we haven't covered yet...
Him: THE DRESS!
Me: Wow. You sound even more excited than I am.
Him: Erm... Sorry.
Me: No need to be sorry about it. Let's take a look at Kate's dress.

Him: That's a nice picture of Kate, erm... Catherine side by side with Grace Kelly.
Me: Yes it is, especially due to the similarities in their wedding gown styles.
Him: Um... I don't mean to burst your bubble, but they're the exact same.
Me: You mean their dresses? They're similar, but different.
Him: And how so?
Me: Well, Grace Kelly's seems more conservative, befitting her time, though of course the lace sleeves (which I adore) were considered modern back then. Princess Grace's dress is also belted at the waist with a matching white sash, while Kate's is more free, also with a lower neckline.
Him: You mean plunging neckline.
Me: Oh there's always worse.
Him: True and I can't help but notice that Kate's hair being down makes the whole look much more modern and relaxed than Grace's look.
Me: Now you're talking like a real fashionista! Kate's veil is also simpler. Her veil and train are so much shorter than Diana's.
Him: That's not saying much. Diana's dress was almost all the way to the door!
The Princess Diana and her REALLY long train
Me: If I remember correctly, Diana's train was about 25 feet long.
Him: So how many meters would that be?
Me: I actually forgot that you were British and didn't know feet! It's about 7.62 meters.
Him: The only question I have now is how on earth did she walk with that thing on?
Me: I'm afraid I can't help you with that one, but here's another picture. I think she tries to remain quite stationary.
Prince Charles and Princess Diana
Him: I can't see her in all that fabric. Someone help! She's drowning in fabric!
Me: I just feel bad for whoever was carrying all that fabric behind her.
Him: Maybe with the recession they're cutting back on poor Kate's train.
Him: You never know what Parlament is up to.
Him: So let's take a look at what Wills is wearing since we just looked at the bride.
The bride and groom on the big day
Me: That is not a flattering picture of him...
Him: Well it's all I had.
Me: His hair is thinning already!
Him: Eh, it's better than some other pictures of ol' Wills.
Prince William (aka Wills or ol' Wills)
Me: Look at this picture. He looks so much better– even dashingly handsome!
Him: Dashingly handsome, huh? Only you would ever say that.
Me: Oh, whatever, but you know it's true. This picture is so much more flattering. He even has HAIR!
Him: Well he's balding now.
Me: Thanks for bursting my bubble.
Him: More like crushing your dreams of a just happily married guy.
Me: I like the best man slightly better.
Him: What is it with the royal family and military uniforms?
Me: Shouldn't you know since you were one of the lucky few invited?
Him: Well the invite said that men should wear uniforms, morning coats, or lounge suits.
Me: That explains it, and I'm just curious but if you could have gone, which would you have chosen.
Him: What I would have chosen and what I would have worn are two separate things.
Me: Do explain.
Him: I would have chosen to a loung suit, but my mother would have expected me to wear a morning coat.
Me: I didn't even know you owned a morning coat.

Him: What else do you expect me to wear to occasions like this? Jeans and a t-shirt?
Me: Umm... no? Anyways, here's an even better picture of Harry.
Him: Are you drooling over this picture of Prince Harry?
Me: Erm... no?
Him: Sure... Anyways, I think that just about wraps up our whole royal wedding coverage. Anything you want to add, A?
Him: So you are drooling over the picture.
Him: Nothing. I'm just wrapping things up.
Me: Oh, well it was fun talking...
Him: ...and making fun of...
Me: ...the people at the royal wedding, and if you liked these posts, we hope that you can post a comment below!
Him: Thanks guys for reading this. It was really fun to be a part of this, and now we have to go so A can oogle at Harry a bit more.
Me: You're absolutely right! Hope to hear from you guys!
