I'm not sure if you've heard anything about it or not, but rumor has it that there was a small wedding held in England today. I'm speaking, of course, about the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. But even truly royal couples such as Wills and Kate can find inspiration in one of the greatest love stories of all time--Gone with the Wind.
You see, many years before Prince William and his bride were getting married in front of an audience of two billion people, they were just two university sweethearts who enjoyed doing normal, everyday things together: like going to the local pub with friends, cooking dinners in their flat...and dressing up as Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara, as they did for a costume party during their senior year at the University of St. Andrews.
We briefly mentioned this charming tidbit about the royal duo on our Facebook page on the occasion of their engagement and, now just in time for their wedding day, we've got some new details on this cute story for you:
"Now when someone suspicious showed up, [William and Kate's] friends nonchalantly ringed the couple to form a human shield... They used the same ruse at the May Ball and a couple of weeks later when they showed up at a costume party dressed as Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara. "Will wore a mustache and looked very dashing," a partygoer recalled, "and Kate was swanning about saying, 'Fiddle-dee-dee.' I was hoping he'd say, 'Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn,' but I doubt if he really knew that much about Gone with the Wind to begin with."--excerpted from William and Kate, by Christopher Anderson
Isn't it kind of fun to think about the future King and Queen of England dressing up as Rhett and Scarlett? We think so. Anyways, congrats to you William and Kate--not only did you look fabulous today, but you've got great taste in love stories!
