D.C. media hope not to be inconvenienced by royal wedding

We're happy for you Wills and Kate . . . but what about our party??? That cry went up in D.C. media circles with word that the royal nuptials will go down on April 29 -- one day before the White House Correspondents' dinner. The potential overlap of guest lists is tiny but significant: The president, who is the main reason anyone wants to buy a pricey ticket to the press gala. (The anchor-level network stars, likely to be deployed to London, are also part of the evening's glitz quotient.) But after an emergency conference call Wednesday, the WHCA decided to stick with the date they've plunked down their big deposits for. "It's an inconvenience, but not a direct conflict," board member Julie Mason told us. And the best bets are that Obama won't feel compelled to skip across the pond: In 1981, Nancy Reagan went solo to the wedding of Charles and Diana.

Oh please. I bet the royals scheduled it that way on purpose. They don't want some narcissist at their wedding.
