Speaking of that dreadful hat, I thought I spotted it the other day, then realised it was a deer in the backyard...

Somebody did a nice job of changing the colors to make it look more like Kate and William. :)

I'm impressed by Princess Bea's ability to take the joke and run with it. Putting that hat on eBay for charity was an inspired move.

True, and it makes it easier to forgive her for her terribly bad manners and taste (I mean, isn't it very bad form to wear something to a wedding that will draw such outrageous attention to onesself when the center of attention is supposed to be the bride? Well, I think it is, anyway, even if that does make me hopelessly old-fashioned. :D Yes, I realize Bea wasn't the only offender in this regard, but she was hands-down the worst. :) )

Tacky, or what?

I see that Pippa Middleton's enticing wiggle has inspired an "adult film-maker" to offer her millions to star in one of his porn movies :( Can't imagine that she'll take up that offer!
