Right at this moment, I’m listening to David Starkey — who is working alongside the editor of Majesty magazine on the CBS commentary. They were showing Princess Catherine’s gown again during some highlight footage, and Starkey said that her gown (which DID look similar to the worn one by Grace Kelly) had a TUDOR LOOK TO IT. I grinned like a Cheshire Cat. I think Starkey made two Tudor references throughout — that one about the gown and a mention of Henry VII, which I missed because I was at work and someone was talking to me. Did any other Americans see the coverage or hear what he said about the Tudor patriarch?
I watched the CBS coverage, too! Starkey was more interesting to me than the more modern commentators on the other networks. I missed his comment on Henry VII, but loved that he said Kate’s dress reminded him of Tudor dresses (very fitted bodice, cut low in front, with a full sweeping skirt, I think he said).
