After months of preparations and years of speculation, this Friday Prince William will marry Catherine Middleton. You can satisfy your curiosity over the details of the celebration by visiting the Official Royal Wedding website, which links to wedding preparations on the Brittish Monarchy's Flickr account, YouTube channel, Facebook page, and the Clarence House's Twitter. You'll find photos and videos for the cake, musicians, official commemorative china, and more! The ceremony itself will occur at eleven A.M. at Westminster Abbey, which works out to five A.M. here in Dubuque. If, like me, you're not quite willing to give up your sleep to enjoy the pageantry, or if you've simply been bitten by the royalty bug, we've got some book and movie suggestions for you!
