THE (NOT SO) ROYAL WEDDING!

Apropos of nothing, and way past the proper time to have posted this, here is a photo of Kate (or, since she and I are not exactly on a first name basis, should I say Her Royal Highness Princess Katherine) at her recent wedding and me at my not so recent wedding.
I know, it’s really hard to tell the difference, but as a hint, she’s on the left and I’m on the right!
Note the similarities in our “gowns”. Who knows how many thousands hers cost; mine $50.00 - on sale at The Limited during prom season (circa 1977)! I also had a “train” on my “gown”. Since I’m so short, the seamstress simply hemmed the front of the dress and let the rest drag on the ground behind me! Quite classy, huh?
By the way, Kate’s got good taste, don’t you think?

Hope you got a good chuckle - just thought I’d share this with you!

You were a beautiful bride ... as was the Royal Highness. Fun post.

The other difference is that she comes with a lot of baggage. You're probably way less complicated and more fun to be around. I think you look beautiful and sweet as sugar on your big day, and it's an absolutely beautiful gown.

PS--I always loved those groovy fish-head hats--so bloody religious looking.

Thanks Nancy and Carrie, glad you got a chuckle out of it!
Bill - I'm definitely less complicated, not sure about fun! And thanks for your kind compliments! No fish head hats for my wedding!

Love the comparison between the dresses...

and hope you don't mind if I just correct something. Prince William's new bride is to be known as Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge (she is not a princess).
Kate (from Somerset, England)

Vicki - thanks - for both compliments!
Thanks Liana - many, many years ago!
Thanks Anonymous - the Royal Couple just left the US and they mentioned their true names on the news - I stand corrected.
