Giveaway Winner, Royal Tour Updates

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quick tidbits to share in case you’ve not yet seen them, the first is that Vanity Fair cover featuring a previously unpublished photo of Prince William and Kate has been released to the media.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

I think that Kate wore it better. The other picture looks like a bored model walking the runway.

I'm so happy that VF used that picture instead. It's on the inside cover of the official CD too. I think Mario Testino tooks some great shots of the couple but it's nice to see something different. It looks more candid than the official photos which is the nice thing about it.

Prince Harry was adorable as a child, a sweet looking baby too. :)

Overall Kate wins this one. As a natural blonde I find that most shades of nude look bad on me and there's no exception to this fake blonde. She would have looked better if she chose the blue colored dress. With Kate and her shoes and clutch, perfect hit. Her accessories are minimal so you don't notice them so much and that makes you look directly at her face. the other girl, you look directly at her tacky shoes, then up to her knees and notice the dull handbag then you completely stop at her chest. You don't even notice her face at all. It might have been a different store if this girl chose the blue.

True Kate wore it better !!! She has a better posture! So definitely all clothes will look better on her!

Thanks for mentioning the lack of an email address, my moronic oversight. I added it to the "Why" page, I'm grateful you commented on it! :)
