A former royal bridesmaid dishes?

By Autumn Brewington

India Hicks (Courtesy of Bill Blass) is reporting that India Hicks, a goddaughter of Prince Charles who was a bridesmaid in his 1981 wedding to Lady Diana Spencer, is working with TLC to record "an insider's view of the lavish traditions grounded in royal weddings and the responsibilities that follow the bride and groom."

Scheduled to air a few days before the April 29 wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, the program reportedly aims to "share intimate details about Charles and Diana's ceremony -- the mishaps, the photos, the menu, and more." Hicks has an article on just this topic in this month's Tatler, which features an Andy Warhol-style portrait of royal bride-to-be Kate on the cover.

Meanwhile, the royals themselves are not dishing about the upcoming nuptials. The Post's Reliable Source reports that when Queen Elizabeth's cousin Prince Michael of Kent visited the British School of Washington on Wednesday, he was mum on details: "It's lovely news and a great thrill," said the prince, who gave up his claim to the throne when he married a Catholic in 1978.

Any further comments? "The wonderful thing is to have some good family news in this rather gloomy economic climate. It lifts everybody up. So it's a lovely thing to look forward to."

What else is he supposed to say for crying out loud? I think he was being quite diplomatic.

President Obama is headed to England. Does that mean he will be invited to the Royal Wedding? Will the Royal Couple invite Sarah Palin to the Royal Wedding? She can play the flute. She played the flute well while running for Alaska's Beauty Queen. And you know what that means, Global Leader, President of the United States, why with her musical talent, Sarah Palin could help run the World Bank.
