Remember that famous JK wedding entrance that went viral a couple of years ago? This time it’s gotten the royal treatment via a T-Mobile commercial. I so love the royal lookalikes they found!
I confess that I’m obsessed with the royal wedding lately. As I mentioned before, Prince William, same age as me, was one of my celebrity crushes as a teen.
But aside from that, being a princess was one of my childhood fantasies. Blame it on those fairy tales.
The problem with those fairytales, I realize now, is that they paint the heroines as sweet beautiful women who did nothing to win the prince’s hearts but just be innocent and true and oh – be damsels in distress.
Real life begged to differ, however. For one thing, Kate is not that breathtakingly beautiful (I mean if you compare her to all the other celebrities which the prince could have helped himself to).
And then, if some sources are to be believed, she did not exactly just sit around waiting for the prince to notice her, but as Carole Lieberman put it, “Middleton was willing to use hardball tactics in pursuit of the University of St. Andrew’s’ most eligible bachelor.”
The reason why she said that was because Kate put on a transparent dress to show off her body at a fashion show, and this was supposedly what made the prince sit up and take notice. Princes are still men, after all.
A more disturbing description of her was made by Andrew Morton in the Reader’s Digest April 2011 issue – “[Kate] and her sister are known in snooty upper-class circles as “The Wisteria Sisters” for their social climbing and you can’t climb any further than being a future queen.”
Well I don’t know if any of that is true but what I’ve learned from all this is that you don’t have to be extremely gorgeous to snag a prince – but I suppose you have to be extremely sexy? LOL, sounds so wrong.
They look so happy together, though. At any rate, whatever the cause may be, I think theirs is true love, not like those of William’s parents. So I hope they get to live happily ever after.
