A Royal Affair

Like much of the world, we’re gearing up for the royal wedding—which is less than 24 hours away!  While the biggest jewelry piece has already been revealed (Princess Di’s pedigree sapphire and diamond engagement ring), tongues are wagging with fantasies of gowns, accessories, and lavish decor.  Insiders say the future Queen of England will be wearing a custom Sophie Cranston dress and judging from the non-traditional road she and Prince William have taken their big day preparations, this won’t be a turtleneck lace ball gown.  We’re envisioning the fair Kate in a sleek dress, sure to accentuate that oh-so tiny waist of hers, with understated by powerful accoutrements .  And what’s royalty without a crown?  There are a bevy of tiaras in play for this occasion and the question is which one will the bride choose?  Some say she’ll be donning Queen Elizabeth’s diamond Russian fringe tiara, made in 1919 for Queen Mary before being passed down to the Queen Mother, the Queen, and Princess Anne for their wedding days.  Not bad for a “commoner”, huh?  So what do you think Kate Middleton will be wearing on her wedding day tomorrow?  And will you be tuning in to watch?
