More on this weekend's wedding
The Daily Mail's Katie Nicholl provides some background on how Prince William and Kate Middleton know the friends whose wedding they attended this weekend. She also notes that, "unusually for a wedding," Kate was dressed in black.
We've pointed out when we've been skeptical of things Nicholl has written -- so we also want to be clear when we're appreciative. That Kate was dressed in black is interesting for two reasons. One, it's a wedding. A lot of etiquette rules have lapsed over time, and not wearing black to weddings may well be among them. But Kate is about to marry into a family that prizes tradition like few others in the world. She was there, for example, when Prince William was inducted into the world's oldest order of chivalry in 2008, complete with ostrich plumes and velvet robes. Social decorum is not something the Windsors take lightly.
