Re: The Royal Wedding: Do You Care (live coverage starts at 4am)

Despite Princess Beatrice's Cthulhu hat (aka "the thing cannot be described") making a valiant effort and the cartwheeling priest of Westminster Abbey putting in a brave showing, 3-year-old bridesmaid Grace Van Cutsem is hands-down the royal wedding meme to rule the Internet.

As newlyweds Wills and Kate shared an uncomfortable micro-kiss from the Buckingham Palace balcony, the roar of the adoring crowd proved to be a bit much for little Grace, who will no doubt live down her new meme moniker, the "Frowning Flower Girl" well into her senior years.

As they drove away in the Aston Martin I couldn't help thinking of the end of On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

Yep, that's real. I didn't notice her until someone pointed it out to me. This will follow her the rest of her life.

Am I the only one that thinks it's kind of funny that so much was made of this wedding and it's definitely possible that William never even gets to become king? The Queen is 85 and apparently many in her family have lived to be over 100 so just say she lives another 20 years. Charles is like 60 so he'd take over at 80 and say he lives for 20 years. That's another 40 years which would make William 70. I know I just was talking about his father and grandmother living past 100 but it still wouldn't be a 100% guarantee that William will live to see 70. Long live King Harry.

Not King Harry if they have kids, he gets pushed back a slot, for everyone they have.

Death is not the only factor that can lead to William becoming king. The Queen can quit any time, and Charles can choose not to accept the job when she's gone.

I didn't watch it, but what celebrities were there? I heard Elton John was there. Was McCartney there? Sting? Peter Gabriel?

I stopped in at my parents house for a couple minutes and they were watching it on TiVo so I watched for a bit. I was expecting a bunch of celebrities too, but they showed Elton John a few times and my mom said the Beckham's were there, but while I was watching I never saw them. Honestly, the only celebrity I saw was Elton John...unless you count all the royals as celebrities.

Here are a bunch of photos of arriving guests along with an article inexplicably attacking David and Victoria Beckham:

Kudos to Samantha Cameron, the wife of the PM, for being one of the few women there who didn't dress like an idiot.

In a day seemingly filled with absolutely ridiculous women's hats, the previously-mentioned Princess Beatrice (right) takes the cake:

The entire first half of that article seems to have been written for the sole purpose of insulting the Beckhams as much as possible.

I'm sure Princess Beatrice was just trying to steal Kate's thunder by showing up in that f'ing ridiculous hat. Payback for Fergie not getting an invite.

Written by a woman. No wonder it was so damn catty.

However, no sane person could ever think wearing that hat worn by the Beatrice woman was a good idea.

Looks like Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean) and Joss Stone attended the wedding too.

Covering The Royal Wedding

The media is going to great lengths to cover the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton this Friday, with CNN alone dedicating 125 reporters to the event. Here are some of the extremes media outlets are undertaking:

* National Geographic: Placing two teams of cameramen in blinds outside Westminster Abbey for three months, waiting to get that perfect shot of the nesting pair
* New York Post: Shoe mirrors to see who Middleton is wearing, panty-wise
* The Sun: Having an anonymous source plant an alien inside the reception, hiring a translator to find out what it experienced
* 60 Minutes: Sending a blond-bewigged Morley Safer through security as Camilla Parker Bowles
* BBC: Using its TARDIS to materialize inside the security perimeter
* Dateline NBC: Erecting a decoy abbey right next to Westminster and ambush-interviewing whichever guests mistakenly walk in
* Agence-France Presse: Sending a correspondent to Calais with a telescope to confirm that the boorish English and their cloud-condemned island are still there
* Cat Fancy: Four-part series on the growing irrelevance of the British royalty and its long-term effect on the working class
