I know you've seen this picture already because it's all over the Internet and even on CNN. When I first saw it, my first reaction was "Oh, how wonderful! Look at that it really is a fairy tale wedding!"
But then, I checked the 1950 Disney "Cinderella" movie and I found out some inconsistencies and how technological manipulation can really fool the naked eye.
|This is the picture splattered all over the news and blogs.|
Now, here is the original get-up of the Tremaine sisters, Drizella and Anastasia. Notice the colors of the gowns and their hair are totally different. Also, I really think that it is a little bit mean-spirited to label the two real-life royal princesses, Eugenie and Beatrice, as the mean step sisters. Jokes are oftentimes half-meant.
Here is the side by side image comparison of the two royal couples:
Again, there is a stark difference between the two from the color of Prince William's Irish guards uniform (as a Colonel of the Irish Guards) and Prince Charming's light gold and yellowish uniform. Go figure out the other details.
Below, the two royal couples share a kiss (for Kate and William twice).
Bottom line, they are very much in love and they are a wonderful inspiration to all folks whether you believe in fairy tales or not or you just celebrate the love and sanctity of marriage between two people.
