We have happy news for Emily of EmilysGoingNuts, she is the winner of our BBC America giveaway, snagging a copy of the just released The Royal Wedding William and Catherine DVD. Thank you to everyone who entered!

BBC America

Emily, if you could be good enough to email us your mailing information, we’ll have your DVD on its way as soon as we receive it from the BBC, that should be the end of this week. :)

We have two very quick tidbits to share in case you’ve not yet seen them, the first is that Vanity Fair cover featuring a previously unpublished photo of Prince William and Kate has been released to the media.

The Mario Testino image is from the photo session for the couple’s formal engagement pictures. The magazine’s website has an interesting tidbit from the upcoming story accompanying the photo:

“Despite Will and Kate’s new official titles ”duke and duchess, respectively”Will made it clear at the wedding that he will continue to be addressed as Prince William, meaning Kate by default will be Princess Catherine, reports Vanity Fair writer Katie Nicholl. This may rattle some family hierarchies” the Countess of Wessex had wanted to be known as Princess Sophie, but had been forbidden by the Queen.”

And finally, those interested in the newlywed’s July tour in Canada with its quick visit to Los Angeles might want to bookmark  this link to the “Official Royal Tour” website. The itinerary is posted, as well as photos from previous Royal visits, new photos and video will be added as soon as they are available.  Obviously, I am more-than-eager to see ‘what Kate wears,” especially in Montreal and then in Calgary, presumably at the Calgary Stampede.
