Anne Hathaway spoofs Princess Kate!

22 November 2010

Update! Our friends across the pond are ALMOST as excited as Grazia Daily about the forthcoming royal Wedding (inevitably, this is not true. Nobody is as excited as Grazia Daily, no matter how hard they try) and this weekend saw Anne Hathaway take centre stage in a royal wedding sketch for Saturday Night Live.

Annie made a very good job of impersonating Kate Middleton (no mean feat, considering we hadn’t heard her talk until last Tuesday) in the sketch for SNL which involved the faux Kate being accosted by ‘The Queen’ (actually Fred Armisten in a white wig) and ‘Prince Philip’ (aka SNL regular Bill Hader). The future bride was then treated to Queenie dropping her usual high falutin’ tones in favour of a Barbara Windsor impersonation and she was then told by the fake Philip to behave like Princess Diana whilst out there on parade, but when ‘in the bedroom - think Fergie’. Erm, we’d rather not, actually.

In other wedding news, bridalwear designer Phillipa Lepley has emerged as the front runner to design Kate’s dress for the big day. According to Stylelist, a ‘number of three figure bets’ have been placed on Lepley (a well respected but under-the-radar occasionwear specialist) successfully winning the gig. Up until this point, the favourite designer to get the commission had been Issa, although it was also considered likely Miss Middleton would opt for a well known UK designer. Remember to pick up the new issue of Grazia (out tomorrow!) where we look at the 'dress-iquette' and rank the top contenders.

Stylelist also touts the question of who will design the hitherto unmentioned bridesmaid’s dresses, giving Grazia Daily yet another facet of the wedding to ponder. Will they been designed by the same designer as the dress itself? Or will Kate go for Berketex, like Jordan? Watch this space peeps!

PS. Were you watching Wills and Kate's engagement interview wondering how it compared to Charles and Diana's? Well we've done the hard work for you in this week's Grazia TV - watch it here!
