    I am most interested to see who is invited and who is not invited! As well, I remember Diana stumbling a bit on all of Prince Charles’ many middle names… will Kate do the same? I follow you on Twitter, subscribe here – all of it!

    • stilettostorytime

      I am excited for the event in some ways simply because I have always seen the snippets and heard tales of the wedding of Diana & Charles…however it was in February of 1981 and I was not born until much later that year. I’m excited to see it all. Thanks for sharing Jennifer!

  2. Rebecca Booth

    I am excited for the event because I hope Prince William of England and Kate Middleton have a beautiful wedding and a long happy life together.

  3. Michele L

    My daughter and I can’t wait to see her dress. They seem truly happy together, so I’m excited to see their ceremony, too.

  4. I’m most excited/pleased that Kate, after waiting all these years, will finally get to marry her prince. It had to be awful, with the press calling her “Waity Katy” and laying odds on whether he’d actually ever marry her. I just hope that they get the HEA his parents didn’t.

    • stilettostorytime

      I agree…I do hope they get a “Happily Ever After”…after the tragedy William has endured in his life and what Kate has gone through for her relationship with him….they deserve it.

  11. I’m looking forward to seeing it all. It’s not everyday that you get to see a royal wedding. I can’t wait to see the dress, the church, and who’s going to be attending this event. I subscribe to your blog via email. I follow you and sourcebooks on twitter (@2readornot2read) I also like the brittish babes book brigade on fb. Thanks so much for the giveaway!

    I can remember 30 years ago getting up at 3:00 AM to watch “Mums and Dad” get married. So it’s only fitting that I watch Wills get married too! I’m excited because I’m taking the day off to watch the Royal Wedding and all its pomp and circumstance and I just like all things royal. Just think….one day you’re a commoner and the next day you wake up and you’re the future Queen of England. I mean how cool is that??!?!?

  17. I think it will just be fun to re-visit the whole royal-watching thing. I used to be crazy about that stuff. It will be fun to relive the enthusiasm. And these two really seem to love and respect each other.

    Thanks for the contest. I liked British Babes Book Brigade, and I’m following stiletto storytime – looks like a fun site – and sourcebooks, too, on twitter.


  18. I wasn’t born until 1985, and did not get to see Prince Charles & Princess Diana’s wedding, until excerpts of it were shown when she passed away! Which was really sad, because I got to see her (not meet her, just see her in person) when she toured Pakistan in 1996.

    I am most interesting in seeing how Kate will handle herself under all that scrutiny. But not to see if she will fail, but to cheer and hope that she does not. Diana was an AMAZING princess, a princess of the people – and I hope Kate will continue that legacy! 🙂

      Thanks for sharing Hira….I too was too young for the original wedding. I really approve of Kate…she seems to have a good head on her shoulders, class and maturity. I think she will absolutely show the world a “lady” on her wedding day!

    I saw the wedding of Charles and Diana when I was a freshman in high school and became a big fan of Diana’s. So I just have to see her son get married. I have a feeling I’ll be crying through the whole service thinking of his mother. Of course there is Kate’s dress, I can’t wait to see her wedding gown.

  24. I’m most excited about the entire ceremony. I love British traditions.

  25. Tina

    Thanks for the chance to win! I’m most excited for the dress.

  26. I am starting to get more and more excited as they show more about the wedding on tv. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  27. Marilyn

    I am happy that William found someone who really loves him and that loyalty and love means something to him. It was apparently a great wish of his Mother’s for William. So Friends and I are going to do finger foods, crumpets, the works and enjoy the glass Carriage, the ceremony, the guests and the whole English Wedding that boy do the British Royals know how to do!

    • stilettostorytime

      Oh Marilyn….how fun! I am jealous of your crumpets…make sure to save a cucumber sandwich for me (they are my fav). Have a great time!

  28. I’m excited because it’s the first televised royal wedding I’ll really get to watch. Everything about it interests me–the dress, the carriages, the pageantry–I can’t wait!

    I get the blog through RSS, follow both you and Sourcebooks on Twitter, and I liked the British Babes Brigade on Facebook.

  29. I am most looking forward to seeing the hats that the guests will be wearing. I hope they are really fanciful.

    Already ‘liked’ BBBB. Would love to win one of these books to give to my mom for Mother’s day.

  30. Lovely giveaway!

    I can’t wait to see the dress, but I think it’s more the pageantry that really does it for me. It’s a little piece of happy history. 🙂

  31. I am excited about everything – the guests, the dress, the pomp. I can’t wait to watch it. I was only three when Charles and Diana were married, and I don’t remember watching it. I’m excited to be watching William and Kate and hope that they have a happy ending.

  32. I’m looking forward to watching the event with my daughter and son. We’ve been reading princess themed books all week in celebration. We are especially curious about the dress. My daughter is about the same age as I was when I watched Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s wedding.

  33. JC

    I loved every minute of the wedding…the dress was amazing. Thanks for the giveaway. I follow Stiletto Storytime. I follow on Twitter as well.

    Congratulations to Michele L and JC who have each won a copy of a Georgette Heyer “surprise” title! Thanks to all who entered and helped celebrate the Royal Wedding of a lifetime! Good Luck on future giveaways and as always Happy Reading!
