The Semiotics of the Wedding

I was driving about this morning and heard this analysis on BBC Radio 4:

The train of Katherine’s dress, being only 8 ft long, rather than the 25 ft of Diana, Princess of Wales’ wedding outfit, was more in keeping with the austere mood of the times.

I see.

Any other cultural decodings gratefully received.

Short train; hard times

    Seriously, they make a very beautiful young couple. So different than the odd couple – Charles and Diana. But the wedding I’m wating for is Harry’s. God knows what that boy will come up with! /o\

    Estonian crack whore.

    Or a lass called Eva Brawn.

    Giles Coren and Sue Perkins did one of their odd telly things a night or two before and recreated some royal wedding food. Apparently the Queen and Phil The Greek had to aknowledge the hard post war years of rationing by announcing that they were being frugal by only having roast partridge.

    Remarkably it turned out that The Queen Mother liked prawn cocktail except made with lobster, which they all agreed was revolting proving that it’s the marie rose sauce not the crustacean that’s the problem.

    I can’t see anything wrong with that; Marie Rose sauce is aces.
