The Queen has made William the Duke of Cambridge & 2 other titles, one the Baron Carrick Fergus, the other one I cannot remember. I'm on my Ipod.

We're planning on watching the episode of Pillars of the Earth that was on last night, I figure that I can watch the news tomorrow night & get the highlights.

I'm interested to see what her dress is like, but apart from that, not really all that interested in the whole shebang.


And that pizzas just weird! Although, not as weird as the bloke whose had Kate & Wills tattooed onto his front teeth... Bizaare things people do

How bizarre! They do say they're temporary, though. Good job - I think it looks silly.

The pizza is hideous. And the Google image is nice but looks a bit Disney-fied.

William's two titles aside from Duke of Cambridge are Earl of Strathearn and Baron Carrickfergus. The title of Duke of Cambridge has been out of use since 1904 and Carrickfergus hasn't had a barony since the 19th century. Pretty cool, huh?

Anyone else planning on referring to the Duchess of Cambridge as Princess Kate regardless?
