The Hats Stole the Show

I wasn’t planning on waking up at the crack ass of dawn to watch the royal wedding, but apparently my cranky daughter had other plans by waking up with a screamfest at 4am and refusing to go back to sleep.

You guys, I think I may have a future princess-wannabe on my hands. Or at least one with 공주병 (gong-joo-byung, which literally translates to “princess disease”), because the little girl was simply ENTHRALLED by the wedding proceedings and would not take her eyes off the TV.

When J woke up at 7am, I held her up to him and said in a little girly voice, “Daddy when I grow up can I be a princess too? Can I marry a prince? Can I wear a dress like that and wear a tiara too?”

“Of course you can!” J replied as he scooped her up in his arms. “You’re already my little princess. I’ll go buy you a tiara right now if you want.”

Obviously someone is trying a little too hard to win his daughter’s affection. 🙄 (Methinks it’s because he knows that I’m her favorite.)

While the wedding itself was very beautiful and rightfully fit for the royal family, I couldn’t help but be a bit underwhelmed by the whole thing. Additionally, while I agree with the majority of the population that Kate Middleton looked beautiful on her wedding day, I personally liked Grace Kelly’s dress better.

Then there were the hats.

Ohhh my the hats!

Obviously the ones that stood out the most were those of Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice of York:

Heck, Princess Beatrice’s hat has already sparked an internet meme, with Facebook fan pages, Tumblr blogs, and various other internet shrines erected in its honor.

Go check out this Buzzfeed page for more amazing hats. The whole concept makes me want to move to England just so I can wear crazy hats on a regular basis.

And just so you don’t think this post was a total waste of internet space…

    My baby woke up early today too (5:50 AGH) so of course my natural response was to watch the Royal Wedding rerun on BBC America. I had NO plans to do this. Weird. I got through about to the part where they were starting to do the people take turns talking part, then I went to watch The Office. I thought her dress was gorgeous, and it was sort of mind blowing to me how big a deal it was since I don’t think anything in the US could equate.

    I want a sweet British hat! Beatrice’s is a little too wild for me, but I want to move to England and wear my sweet hats to tea with the queen.
