Ravishing Royal Review


20110429082633_207915_large_cortejo-william-e-kate_large 

DEFINITION:    Pomp & Circumstance—Splendid celebration with ceremony and fuss; also, the title of several military marches played at ceremonies.

The title is taken from Act III, Scene III of Shakespeare’s Othello:

Farewell the neighing steed and the shrill trump, The spirit-stirring drum, th’ear-piercing fife, The royal banner, and all quality, Pride, pomp, and circumstance of glorious war!”

 I don’t know about you, but I’ve been watching rerun after rerun of William & Kate’s wedding. I can’t get enough.

I coveted the THE HATS,  Oh My!  (Seriously, they are  Pure, Sublime Pieces of Art )!

The ‘halo’ tiara was made by Cartier in 1936 and was purchased by The Duke of York (later King George VI) for his Duchess (later Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother) three weeks before he succeeded his brother as King. The tiara was presented to Princess Elizabeth (now The Queen) by her mother on the occasion of her 18th birthday.   I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT.

    “Imagine if she tripped over her gown!”

    I noticed that devilish look on his face. I swore he was up to something.

    Well….according to a lip reader he said…”yep she is here now” or something like that. And William whispered to his father-in-law…”It was supposed to be a simple family affair” What a sweetie…he looked so nervous but still making jokes…loved watching it!

      ~~~~~~~~~The last time I wore a hat, Lorraine, was at the wedding of my husband’s
      sister in England….It was a large & choclate brown. Very Lady Diana.
      Yes, the hats were a hit @ the Royal Wedding….did you like Beatirces’?
      With all of your travels, I can’t beleive you haven’t worn yours!!! 🙂 xx

        I know, hats are a bit hard to take in the luggage as they often need a separate box and when you’re travelling and trying to travel light, it’s hard to do (although not impossible 🙂 ). I didn’t mind her hat. In fact I knew that if I had ever turned up to the wedding I would probably look similar to Beatrice 😛

          Loved it.

          ~~~And you would look Fab in that hat…. and that’s that. 🙂 xx

    This is the first video that I’ve seen. I don’t watch the news and have only seen glimpses in commercials. Her dress is gorgeous.

    I have no idea what Harry said, but he’s a tall drink of water.

    Here from the tea party!

      day you might be Queen of England?”

    I have to say, while I love love love Shakespeare – for the love of Pete, I’m an English teacher – I think the hats are totally ridiculous. That one looked looked like something that Medusa wouldn’t have been caught dead in. 😉

    I’m glad you enjoyed the pomp and circumstance though.

    Definitely better than a circumcision. 😉
