Because it Really IS ALLLLL About “Them…”

And it is NOT the “them” you will think.

Happy, fairy tale news from the House of Windsor today…Princess William will marry Miss Kate Middleton this spring or summer.

Now, having  just helped plan my own daughter’s wedding (right down to mums in hollowed out pumpkins, hand caligraphing the invites, and baking 26 million gazillion cookies)…I for one am just flabbergasted at the ‘open date’…but when (sniff) a couple has ‘people’ to do such things…well…I guess one can be more flexible.

One of my fondest memories was getting up at 3:00 a.m. to watch the Royal wedding on  July 29, 1981.  It was a fairy tale come to life.  Except the Prince wasn’t so Charming, and the ending wasn’t so happy…but what the hey, the event itself was beyond awesome.  The arrival in the carriage; the Dress; Kiri Tikanawa’s voice; Trumpet Voluntary; did I mention the Dress?; the tiara; the amazing flowers (which probably really chapped the old’ chap Prince Greenie).  Amazing…but this isn’t about Wills and Kate and THEIR upcoming nuptuals or the grandeur of the House of Windsor…


Its about Shelli and Barry and how THEY ARE NOT GOING TO BE INVITED.

Hehehehe..when the news broke, no doubt, one of Shelli’s Ladies in Waiting (on the 7 to 3 shift…it IS  a 24/7  effort to maintain Fashion Icon(tm) status) probably thought, as she was sippping her latte, ‘Jason Wu?’  “Azzedine Alaia?” ‘It will have to be a dayglo  shade for proper command of all crowd photos; and the hat will have to have its own zip code.  Maybe Maria Toledo can do a shiny identifiable from aerial shots metallic number?”

The buzz in the East Wing must have been deafening–all the preening and prepping for the invite to come..

Until about an hour later when it was revealed that THIS Royal Wedding will be a smaller venue than Chuck and Di’s (they used the palatial size St. Paul’s Cathedral in London).  The British press reads this as NO foreign dignitaries and NO heads (or in the US case,  ASSES) of State…so…


Maybe Grandma Liz can giftie our Ruling Wons, in their trip next Fall across the pond, with a complete boxed set of ‘The Weddings of Windsor’  versions 1.1 and 1.2 (iPod ready?)

As for the Soetaro’s present to the newlyweds…well, I am guessing something ‘Indian’ (dot not feather) and Kate, hon, DON’T try to return it at Bombay Imports.


Wills and Miss Middleton have set the date for their nuptuals.  Keeping with Royal tradition, the couple will marry on a week day…so mark you calendars for Friday, April 29, 2011.  The ceremony to take place at Westminster Abbey 🙂

    Are they really not invited? That would be fine with me. The last time they went to England, I was mortified by their behavior and “gifts” (and as usual MO’s horrid wardrobe). In fact, I hope they are NOT invited. After BO sent the bust of Winston Churchill back to England, he doesn’t deserve to be invited. I just hope that he hasn’t completely destroyed our relationship with the UK. (And that they send the bust back when we get a real American president in the WH, one who loves and respects America and her REAL allies.).

    “Dot, not feather” I love, love, love your writing. Why aren’t you writing jokes for Hollywood? You’re better than most!
