Best Wedding Story So Far? Maybe!

21 January 2011

So this might just have shot to the top of the list to become our favourite piece of wedding-related news thus far.

Eleven art students have paid their own special tribute to Kate Middleton by creating a piece of performance art called ‘Kate’ which involved them donning some ‘market stall versions’ of the Issa dress Kate wore to announce her engagement (will you take a look at the sheen on that fabric?) as well as some - presumably crafted from Fimo and held together with blu tack – copies of her engagement ring and pairs of black Primark I-can’t-believe-it’s-not-suede pumps.

The Kates posed outside Buckingham Palace as a performance piece, which involved them telling inquisitive tourists ‘I'm Kate. It's wonderful to meet you. I'm very excited about the wedding.’

The twosome responsible for the activity are 28-year old Sarah Cockings and Briony Clarke who is 29. Briony told reporters: ‘We are of the age group that grew up wanting to be a princess and now we won't be able to be… We're all very excited about the wedding but also there's a feeling in our generation that's sad because it won't be us. We are doing this to explore that.’

Just one question ladies: what about Harry?
