William and Kate – A Wedding and Royal Blood

The Prince is marrying a commoner – not exactly Cinderella, but close enough to dream – and makes a good case for college networking opportunities.

To prepare us for the big event, the New York Times, along with every other major publication, has bombarded us with articles on the wedding dress – Waiting for the Dress, the politics of royalty – This Tarnished Crown, and made for TV movies – my favorite, William and Kate: Let Love Rule.

I found 5 books, so far, mostly alike and mostly pictures…

– but isn’t that why we will be watching?  I hope they have instant replays.

If you haven’t been invited (see the seating plan below), Royal Blood by a real Brit, Rhys Bowen, who now lives in California, will help get you through the night.  In this very British mystery, you can join the Queen for tea at Buckingham palace, and then follow Lady Georgiana to a wedding in Transylvania where she solves a murder and prevents a war.  The formula is predictable and you could read the book, listen to the droning commentators, and watch the wedding all at the same time.
