Kiss me Kate

from w
It's always nice to see a fine looking couple with good teeth getting married so best wishes to the eldest son of the eldest son of a privileged family. And of course any young couple getting married today, the youngest daughter of the youngest daughter as well.
I watched it and thought the church service was very good though old-fashioned English was used. The Welsh hymns were fine though many people there didn't seem to be opening their mouths. The John Rutter music was excellent as usual. The young couple didn't fluff their lines and looked charming. The bride's dress was really beautiful, not overdone. But the whole service too long towards the end - as the music went on and on and on. Michelle Griffen wrote a piece for the Age which sums up what some Aussies think - fine spectacle and the British do ceremony and pomp very well, but we still have our opinions about the relevance of the royal institution. I tried to copy the piece from the Age but my computer stuffed up the copying as a punishment for my skewed views I guess!
Kate's sister nearly stole the show with the little girls and boys dressed up.

There's some good commentary on an ABC website about the Chaser and satire.
