How Kate Middleton's Wedding Dress Was Kept A Secret

kate-middleton-catherine-duchess-of-cambridge-wedding-dress-to-go-on-display__opt1.jpg

This is fascinating!

All the details on how Kate Middleton's wedding dress was kept a secret up until she arrived at Westminster Abbey are slowly beginning to surface.

Insiders say both the lace-makers at the Royal School of Needlework and Alexander McQueen seamstresses were told their work was for a movie, but wouldn't elaborate further.

The dress itself was constructed inside Buckingham Palace by Sarah Burton and a small group of helpers that were signed to secrecy. And if they were ever asked about the fashion house's involvement with the Royal Wedding they had to lie.

Ah, the classic "denial" trick. Works every time.

So much has happened for Sarah Burton in the past year, but creating Kate Middleton's wedding gown is the royal icing on the cake.

The Alexander McQueen creative director said after the big reveal at Westminster Abbey:

"It has been the experience of a lifetime to work with Catherine Middleton to create her wedding dress, and I have enjoyed every moment of it" she said today. It was such an incredible honour to be asked, and I am so proud of what we and the Alexander McQueen team have created."

Congrats, Sarah! You did an outstanding job!

Royal Wedding Music Choice Details Revealed!

royal wedding music choice details revealed

Earlier this week, we were really excited to hear reports that Jay-Z and Beyonce might perform at the royal wedding!

Now, more details have arisen regarding the royal wedding music choice, and we've learned that Prince William and Kate will have the London Chamber Orchestra perform on their special day.

Here's what London Chamber Orchestra music director/conductor Christopher Warren-Green had to say about it:

"The couple have very, very strong ideas of what they want, and after all, at the end of the day, it is their wedding. It's a young couple's wedding, and they should have what they want."

"They involved both sets of parents – the Middleton family, as well as the Prince of Wales. And both myself and the organist and choirmaster of Westminster Abbey, of course, are here to advise and to help."

Sounds very nice, but what about Beyonce and Jay? Is that still happening? We'd like some confirmation, please!

P.S. Be sure to watch Perez as he hosts with Nene Leakes "Will + Kate Forever," the only royal wedding special worth seeing, airing Friday, April 29th at 7pm/6c on Wedding Central and also at 9pm/8c on WE tv.

Anarchists Plan To Ambush The Royal Wedding!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooRoyals RoyceLove Line

anarchist-plan-to-ambush-royal-wedding

You'd think that if they truly wanted to be effective, then they wouldn't openly discuss such STOOPID plans!

A group of UK anarchists have reportedly banned together in an attempt to collectively ambush and ruin Prince William and Kate Middleton's upcoming royal wedding at Westminster Abbey next month!

Led by former professor Chris Knight, the group hopes to cause enough of a scene around the building to exhaust police forces, and ultimately force the couple to switch the ceremony's location to St. Paul's Cathedral!

Knight reveals:

"The plan is to mingle with well-wishers in large numbers, hold anarchist street parties, reoccupy Parliament Square, stage a carnival orgy and drive up security costs to the point when the whole wedding has to be relocated to St Paul's. This would be hugely embarrassing to the monarchy. The Police Federation, in dispute with the Government over spending cuts, may thank us for this. The first phase is called Operation Dual Power. Around ten anarchist groups will take over key buildings including a barracks, a police station and local government buildings in Westminster. The second phase is on the day of the wedding. Overall, the plan is to cause as much trouble as possible so it becomes so prohibitively expensive for the police to control that they've either got to cancel the wedding or move it."

"Bring it on. We mean business. The royal wedding is a disgrace and if we stop it I will be laughing. If the police press their nuclear button, I will press mine. We're prepared for trouble - we've got hard hats, big shields, battering rams. We're going to take over a TV station and a radio channel and try and take over power at key centres. We will concentrating on places in Westminster because if we can occupy them for a month there's no way they can hold the wedding there. Network X is a joint command revolutionary organisation. It consists of the Whitechapel Anarchists Group, the NMLA, Democracy Village, the Direction Action Group, Class War and many environmental and feminist anarchists. What is the Army going to do, fire on us?"

Yeah, that's a whole bunch of crazy all over an effing wedding, no? Who does this guy think he is, V for Vendetta?

Luckily, authorities are about 16 steps ahead of these nutjobs, and have revealed:

"Any attempt to disrupt the royal cortege will be dealt with robustly. An appropriate policing plan will be in place."

Phew! Again - NOT entirely sure why they think drawing attention to this bull shiz is the best way to achieve their ridiculous goal, but we imagine that ultimately, this just some ridiculous ploy to get press for themselves.

At least we hope so! We'll be pissed if they complicate William and Kate's big day!

Fingers crossed that the authorities will take care of this nuisance!

Thoughts??
