In just one hour, the world will stand still, except those opting for their DVR, as Prince William and Kate Middleton say their long-awaited ‘I dos’ in a lavish royal wedding. Seeing “royal wedding” and “Will + Kate” plastered everywhere has made it virtually impossible to not think of our trans-Atlantic cousins. Put a Union Jack on anything, and Americans eat it up. (If you’ve ever been to London, you know that patriotic souvenir shops are everywhere.) Brits around the globe are fond of them, too.
If you chose to DVR the ceremony, throw your own royal wedding party later today (sans PJs) centered around traditional English food, including some of Will and Kate’s favorite dishes, at FoodNetwork.com. And if you’re as fascinated with the royal couple as me, follow the pair’s relationship timeline at TravelChannel.com.
