Yeah, she was terrific. Her ability to poke fun at herself and at some pretty awful moments in her life was remarkable. She did this great piece about how George Lucas told her "there are no bras in space" when she came out wearing a bra under that white robe costume in Star Wars.

Palace guard axed over Kate rant
(UKPA) – 1 day ago


A Buckingham Palace guard has been axed from his regiment's duties on the day of the royal wedding after he ranted about Kate Middleton on Facebook.

Scots Guardsman Cameron Reilly, 18, called the bride-to-be a "posh bitch" on the social networking site.

The soldier, who regularly wears the famous bearskin hat and red tunic while on duty outside royal palaces, is also being investigated for racist posts.

Referring to Kate and her future husband, he wrote: "hur and william drove past me on friday n all a got was a shitty wave while she looked the opposite way from me, stupid stuck up cow am a not good enough for them! posh bitch am totally with u on this 1 who reely gives a f*** about hur".

Re: ***The Royal Wedding***

Australian satire program The Chaser banned from covering the royal wedding. The British sense of humour apparently doesn't extend to the upper class.

Quote:
The ABC's plans to have the controversial Chaser team commentate a telecast of the royal wedding has been cancelled on orders from Clarence House in London.

In an unprecedented step, the palace, which serves as an office for the Prince of Wales and his son, Prince William, has imposed a ban on the broadcast because of perceived sensitivities to criticism.

The broadcast agreement under which the ABC takes the wedding telecast forbids its use in "any drama, comedy, satirical or similar entertainment program or content."

The ABC was advised today that it would be in breach of the agreement if it proceeded with plans to air the wedding on ABC2 with the Chaser team providing a comedy-based commentary.

ABC1 will still take "BBC coverage of the wedding", including its commentary. ABC News and ABC News 24 will also be able to use footage.

Kim Dalton, Director of ABC TV said "the national broadcaster has acted in good faith in its negotiations around ABC2‟s planned coverage with both [broadcast suppliers] the BBC and APTN.

"We're surprised and disappointed at this very late stage to be informed that any satirical or comedic treatment of the marriage of Australia's future Head of State has been banned."

The ban has stunned broadcast executives, in part because other networks are planning light entertainment-themed coverage, including Nine, which is using Dame Edva Everage as a commentator, and Ten, which is using its entertainment programs The 7pm Project and The Circle to frame its coverage.

As late as this morning the BBC issued a new contract imposing additional restrictions on the use of its material.

"ABC TV had always planned to take the BBC's full coverage with commentary on ABC1. However like other broadcasters we thought Australians would appreciate an alternative take on this major event," said Dalton.

"The Nine Network has Dame Edna giving her commentary and the Ten Network has the 7PM Project taking a light-hearted approach to the Royal Wedding. Our obvious choice, for a light-hearted commentary is The Chaser team. Clearly, the BBC and Clarence House have decided The Chaser aren't acceptable."

The Chaser's Julian Morrow said: "The Chaser team accepts that the ABC has been put in an impossible position by people acting on behalf of the Royal Family.

"For a monarchy to be issuing decrees about how the media should cover them seems quite out of keeping with modern democratic times .... but I suppose that's exactly what the monarchy is.

"It's traditional for the condemned to appeal to the Monarch for a stay of execution, so that's what we're going to do. Unfortunately, it's also traditional for people who appeal for clemency to be executed."

The Chaser's Chris Taylor said: "We've been taken off air before but never by the Queen herself. It's an honour."

Re: ***The Royal Wedding***

They should broadbast their commentary on the radio. Then people could have their TV on mute with the radio on.

Re: ***The Royal Wedding***

i am envisioning one plate (has to be of crown staffordshire quality, obviously) with a giant hand painted crack in between their portraits with the dates of the wedding and divorce....and a sad face emoticon somewhere hand painted with gold leaf, at least.

Re: ***The Royal Wedding***

I was hoping now that it happened the national media here would settle down, but I can't see that happening. Their first official visit as a married couple is to Canada.

I just watched an hour or so of the coverage. I enjoyed watching it more than I thought I would. I also loved her dress! Woo! Girltalk.

The French

Quote:
France covers royal wedding with plenty of republican irony
Karl Lagerfeld criticises dresses as comments on UK spending cuts and unemployment crop up during media coverage

France might have guillotined its own monarchy and replaced them with courtly figures such as Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni – but the "Wills et Kate: so British!" media frenzy knew no bounds.

Celebrity magazines forecast a tripling of sales. State television began broadcasting live from Bucklebury before breakfast. WH Smith in Paris reported frantic memorabilia-purchasing.

But in true republican style, coverage was punctured with plenty of irony, condemnation of "broken Britain" and the odd dig at the Olympics.

Surely the canniest piece of commentator casting was the Paris-based fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, who propped up state television for hours, wearing a black tie with a crown on it and spearing the proceedings with mumbled one-liners.

Kate's dress was "much nicer than Diana's, which was a giant white taffeta curtain", he said, giving thanks for the absence of a chignon. "I love the fact that her hair is flat ... flat hair is very elegant, it gives an allure of the 1930s."

But as for poor Princess Beatrice: "Where did she find that hat, in a bin? It's atrocious. There's a word for those two sisters, but I'm not going to say it."

Overall, however, he loved the wedding, particularly his new idols Carole and Pippa Middleton ("sexy but not vulgar"), concluding that the proceedings would really cheer up unemployed people sitting at home.

France Inter radio's equivalent of the Today Programme was under no illusions that this pageantry would mask the discontent over Cameron's austerity cuts and "tensions" about the voting system.

"Social mobility, my arse" was the general theme of the debate, with the panel fuming that high tuition fees had sent Britain "back to Victorian times", ensuring poor people could no longer access universities – let alone leapfrog the class system à la Middleton. It also condemned Britain's axing of the Film Council.

Jean-Marie Le Guen, a Socialist MP and supporter of the left's potential presidential candidate Dominique Strauss-Kahn, sighed: "I do feel French republican about this. There's opium of the people at play."

Marc Roche, the esteemed French analyst of the royals, wanted to set the record straight on William's so-called modernity, saying: "He speaks no foreign language, has little interest in world affairs and his entourage is essentially made up of aristocrats.

"He represents an England that is white, Protestant and noble, in contrast to a civil society that is meritocratic and multicultural."

None of this could dampen the ecstasy of France's great monarchist TV presenter, Stéphane Bern, who felt that, via Kate, the next generation of the monarchy "will carry as much blood of Welsh miners" as their royal genes.
