Have you got your invite to the royal wedding yet? No? Me neither, but if I did I would be waiting with bated breath for the wedding guidelines handout that is accompanying the invitation for the world’s most anticipated wedding since Jennifer Aniston married Brad Pitt. Actually that’s probably a bad example considering how that worked out.
So the impending nuptials of Kate and William. It’s being run with military precision, which is appropriate considering that William is in the military. There’s real attention to detail. Take for instance the aforementioned wedding guidelines.
Item 1. You will not kiss the Queen. No mooching your way over and planting a double cheeked kiss on the royal personage. You will however address her as ma’am to rhyme with jam, not arm.
Item 2. Women are not to wear white or cream. Really do they need to tell people that? Women must also wear a hat and gloves. PM, Julia Gillard in a hat. That will be interesting. I hope she doesn’t trot out that hideous bedspread coat she wore during her election campaign. That would be very embarrassing.
Item 3. You will not tweet or update your Facebook page while attending the royal ceremonies. You will also turn off your phone. That’s just manners.
Item 4. Chewing gum is verbotem.
And so on it goes. There’s even instructions on how to stir your tea (side to side not round and round in case you’re wondering).
Gosh it all sounds a bit much doesn’t it? I’m fairly confident that not much fun will be had by all. Image
