Shield your eyes! Bright bling, straight ahead! Every outfit needs a little shine, and when your bank account has a hefty amount of zeroes — the good kind — bigger jewelry is always better.
Celebrities know that engagement rings and wedding bands aren’t the only reason to shop for finely cut stones. And when it comes to purchasing some show-stopping accessories, the Galleria of Jewelry just isn’t going to cut it. (Sorry, Jared.)

While princess-to-be Kate Middleton‘s white hot bikini bod proves she’ll have no problem blending in with the world’s prettiest princesses, her generation’s royal posse rolls thick in good looks and svelte figures. From Princess Charlotte of Monaco to Princess Madeleine of Sweden to everyone’s favorite redheaded, six-packed Brit, Harry, this crowned crew looks good in and out of their royal garb.

Disrespecting royalty is a proud American tradition—arguably, the first. But Jerry Seinfeld was being a little uncouth when he gave a big raspberry to the impending marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton on the BBC’s Daybreak. “It’s a circus act, it’s an absurd act,” said the sitcom star when asked if he was excited. “You know, it’s a dress-up. It’s a classic English thing of let’s play dress-up. Let’s pretend that these are special people. OK, we’ll all pretend that—that’s what theater is….And that’s what the Royal Family is—it’s a huge game of pretend. These aren’t special people—it’s fake outfits, fake phoney hats and gowns. It’s fantastic. We don’t have anything like that.” Bill Maher would disagree, but let’s not risk pissing off any more people today.
Daybreak host Adrien Chiles was a little put off by Seinfeld’s open irreverence. “I’ll join in on any of that stuff, if it’s a Brit doing it. But I can’t bear Americans criticizing the Royal family. It turns me into a Royalist!…He’ll be doing [his upcoming live] show from the Tower of London, never mind the O2.” Considering Seinfeld’s big stand-up date isn’t until June—well after the wedding, hopefully everyone will have gotten this commoner’s impudence by then.

Prince William & Kate Middleton somehow forgot to invite Dolly Parton to their upcoming wedding, but that’s not going to stop the country singer from trying to get on the list. She told the UK show Lorraine that she’d be honored to sing “I Will Always Love You” with Elton John…not that anyone’s suggested she should. “Wouldn’t that be great? Nobody’s asked me about that but I might offer it. [A duet] with Whitney Houston, I would do anything. Elton John could play for meÃ‚Â and I could sing the song, he could sing a duet with me. I’m sure he was probably invited, I wasn’t invited.” You and 99.9999% of the people who’d like to be there, Dolly.
Some entertainers aren’t waiting to be asked for their contribution, though. George Michael has tweeted that he’s sending Kate & William an undisclosed ’70s cover as a gift. “We have a mutual friend who i think will make sure it gets to them. That and the toaster….” While he’s only revealed the song’s decade of origin and the first word of the title (“You”), George plans to release the song to the world on Friday. Here’s hoping he skips the T-Pain autotuning he smeared all over his recent New Order cover.
We’ve got royal fever these days because of William and Kate Middleton‘s upcoming wedding, but it’s the ginger prince who really makes us swoon. Check out the special edition Prince Harry GQ UK‘s May cover shot by David Bailey, and tell us if we’re wrong! The magazine has bagged an exclusive with the shot and story on the Walking with the Wounded team, which the prince is patron of. They’re going on a massive four week trek to the North Pole to try and raise 2 million pounds for charities that help rehabilitate wounded servicemen. Super noble, and super hot. Don’t you agree?

Welcome to The Daily Hot – our round-up of the sexiest pics and stories on the interwebs. Today’s steaming pile of hotness:
If you were waiting for the appropriate time to go insane about Prince William & Kate Middleton’s wedding, this is probably the day. The official wedding website just launched, promising loads of upcoming exclusive content and serving as an easy hub to see when the royals update their YouTube page, their Twitter, their Facebook page, and just about every other social media platform. Now if only they could get the Queen to tweet some confused messages in all caps for us.
If that isn’t enough to sate your royal madness, unofficial souvenirs available elsewhere now include coasters, ashtrays and even press-on fingernails so Kate & William can stare back at you all day long until you, slowly peeling away as the week rolls on. See photos of the goods in the gallery below, and check out a new video posted by Kate & William after the jump.
Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s official wedding invitations are in business. 1,900 lucky guests around the globe have received this 10 by 6 inch white card that has the insignia of Will’s grandmom, Queen Elizabeth. It’s a simple invite, with gilt edging, with the Lord Chamberlain (as commanded by the Queen) asking guests to arrive on April 29 at 11 am at Westminster Abbey. They’ve been asked to dress in “Uniform, Morning Coat or Lounge Suit.”
Suffice to say we haven’t got an invite, which is well enough because we don’t know what the hell we’d wear. A lounge suit? That sounds like something Hugh Hefner puts on. We’re in good company though, because joining us in watching the imminent wedding on T.V will be Michelle Obama who hasn’t got an invite either. And the strict guest list applies to the Royal Family as well. Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, has not been invited, but her daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie have been, and will attend. Ouch!
It’s all gravy though, because Fergie’s rep has stated, “She will not be attending. She never expected to be invited.” That’s what happens when you get caught offering access to Prince Andrew for money in an undercover News of the World sting operation.

Are you as excited about the royal wedding as we are? Now that William is off the market, we can focus whole-heartedly on our favorite SINGLE ginge, Prince Harry. Forget what Kate Middleton’s going to wear at the wedding, we want to see Harry rock some uniform. And we’re totally going to ignore this business of Harry and Chelsea Davy supposedly reuniting on a date. Because it totally didn’t happen. Heard that? Didn’t happen.
But unfortunately all our hopes of somehow attending that wedding (hah) have been officially dashed. Because if Michelle Obama didn’t get invited to Will and Kate’s “I do’s” there ain’t a chance in hell for anybody else. That’s pretty bad form on the Brits! Mrs O made an appearance on Live! With Regis And Kelly and revealed that she really hadn’t been invite to the wedding. But as always, the First Lady was gracious about the royal snub saying, “Marriage is a personal private thing, they should invite who they want to invite. And if I get invited, I’ll go.” Dudes…. You can’t diss Michelle. You gotta invite her now! So come on Royal Letter Writer (we bet they have one of those). Do your thing.
