Royal Wedding Fever

The marriage of Prince William and Kate is set to be this Friday, April 29th. From Kiss me Kate beer, to the Official Royal Wedding website, and Royal wedding condoms, Royal Wedding Fever is everywhere we look.  Although it's sad President Obama didn't declare this day a public holiday I can't wait to catch the highlights (and of course see that much talked about wedding dress!).  If you're a true die hard Royal Wedding fan, you can catch the wedding broadcast starting at 4am central time here in Chicago or you can stream it at work from BBC's live coverage.   Here's a look at some of the more famous Royal Weddings to date.
