I Love This Almost Certainly Untrue Rumor About Why Angelina Jolie Didn't Attend the Royal Wedding I Love This Almost Certainly Untrue Rumor About Why Angelina Jolie Didn't Attend the Royal Wedding

I was going to make the lead story in this morning’s Dirt Bag about Roseanne begging “like 40 motherfuckers” at ABC to not cancel her show, but then I realized, Bob, it’s Friday, and that’s no fun.

This Is All the Shit I Bought at the Royal Wedding This Is All the Shit I Bought at the Royal Wedding

I’m not proud of the amount I spent on royal wedding shit, but nor am I entirely ashamed. Come on—how many royal weddings am I going to attend? This is both true, and my justification for purchasing way too much (wonderful) junk.

Last week, the Daily Mail featured quotes from designer Emilia Wickstead in which she seemed to suggest that she thought Meghan Markle’s wedding dress rather close to her own label’s work and also Markle’s wispy ’do was wrong for the regal occasion. Now, Wickstead has released a statement saying that she sees no…

Standing in the Shadow of the Monarchy at the Royal Wedding Standing in the Shadow of the Monarchy at the Royal Wedding

Every fairy tale has its peasants; the existence of royalty demands the existence of subjects. Princes and princesses, kings and queens, put you in the position of watching, assigning you the role of witness to their power. Spectacle is one of the most powerful tools left to the Windsors, and they wield it expertly.

The Magnificent Meghan Markle  The Magnificent Meghan Markle 

Meghan Markle has already stepped into her role as the Duchess of Sussex with the ease, grace, and dignity befitting a Suits star, but we at Dirtcast are not quite ready to let these beautiful, British nuptials go into that good night.

Thanks for the Memes, But These Are the Official Photos of Harry and Meghan's Wedding 

Whether you watched the wedding or not, some image from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s holy union has found a way to embed itself in your brain. Media coverage was inescapable, and Twitter will be reminding me of Harry’s lip bite for all eternity. The Royal Family, however, is choosing to document the day in a far…

I Camped Out Overnight for This Photo of Harry and Meghan and I Regret Nothing I Camped Out Overnight for This Photo of Harry and Meghan and I Regret Nothing

Windsor—What does it take to get the perfect shot of the newly married Harry and Meghan from the cheap seats? Turns out it’s a £25 fleece Union Jack blanket, three pairs of socks, four cups of wildly overpriced coffee, and the kindness of several royal enthusiast strangers.

Saturday Night Social: Fine, I'll Have Some Royal Wedding Memes, But That's IT Saturday Night Social: Fine, I'll Have Some Royal Wedding Memes, But That's IT

In the approximate 2.6 billion years since Harry and Meghan announced their engagement by matching beaded bracelets from their trip to Botswana where they spent five days camping out together above the Boteti River–facts I know–I have learned more about Meghan Markle than I know about my own medical history. I know…

At Royal Wedding, Gospel Choir Sings American Civil Rights Anthems 'Stand By Me' and 'This Little Light of Mine'  At Royal Wedding, Gospel Choir Sings American Civil Rights Anthems 'Stand By Me' and 'This Little Light of Mine' 

As previously reported, Meghan and Harry’s royal wedding sermon, delivered by American Bishop Michael Curry, brought American black culture to the fore of an aging, all-white, and fairly racist monarchical structure. Another truly moving force was the British gospel choir Karen Gibson and the Kingdom Choir, who sang…

Even from this side of the pond, racism surrounding the royal wedding has sounded loud and clear, from Princess Michael’s decision to wear a “Blackamoor” black servant brooch to meet Meghan to British tabloids’ incessant, unprompted mentions of Meghan Markle’s race, using references like “straight outta Compton,” and…

Royal Wedding 2: I Came for the Hats Royal Wedding 2: I Came for the Hats

For most people (my mom and the Lifetime channel) royal wedding frenzy is about living a vicarious Cinderella dream or whatever; for me, it is the dream that somewhere, someday, maybe I, too, can strap a lily pad on my head. Few occasions exist on American soil in which hats, much less fascinators, are legitimate…

Here We Are With a Firsthand View of the Royal Wedding Media Circus at Windsor Castle Here We Are With a Firsthand View of the Royal Wedding Media Circus at Windsor Castle

Windsor—I’d been in Windsor less than 30 minutes on Thursday morning when I spotted Hoda Kotb, host of the Today Show, ambling around in a light pink coat. Moments later, CBS This Morning anchor Gayle King passed by, calling out: “Hoda, you have fun!”

Prince Charles Will Walk Meghan Down the End of the Aisle, But She'll Walk the First Part Alone Prince Charles Will Walk Meghan Down the End of the Aisle, But She'll Walk the First Part Alone

When Meghan Markle announced that her father would not be attending her demented, vaguely Brexit-themed amusement park ride on Saturday, the good money was on her mother, Doria Ragland, taking over and walking Markle down the aisle. But those odds were shattered into a million pieces by the combined forces of the…

From Personalized Marmite to Ugly-Ass Flags: Here Are the Wildest Souvenirs I Found at the Royal Wedding From Personalized Marmite to Ugly-Ass Flags: Here Are the Wildest Souvenirs I Found at the Royal Wedding

Windsor—London doesn’t feel particularly electrified by the looming royal wedding, so much as—with the U.K.’s trademark stoicism—casually interested. Windsor, on the other hand, is wrapped in bunting and waiting with open arms, positively overflowing with souvenirs.

Hello From the Royal Wedding, Where I'm Chasing the Rom-Com American-Princess Dream Hello From the Royal Wedding, Where I'm Chasing the Rom-Com American-Princess Dream

London—As somebody whose long-running fascinations include fairy tales, romance novels, and the stubborn persistence of monarchy, how could I possibly miss the opportunity to get as close as possible to that rarest of birds: a real, live American princess?

Meghan Markle's Bridal Party Has Been Revealed, and Includes Not One Cast Member From Suits Meghan Markle's Bridal Party Has Been Revealed, and Includes Not One Cast Member From Suits

When clicking a headline about Meghan Markle’s bridal party reveal I was expecting to see names like Quantico star Priyanka Chopra, her bff whose job escapes me Jessica Mulroney, and [DO SOME MINIMAL RESEARCH AND INSERT SUITS STAR HERE], but that is because I am an idiot who forgot that royal weddings are wack as…

The Time Traveler's Guide to Catching a Royal Wedding  The Time Traveler's Guide to Catching a Royal Wedding 

The spectacle of a royal wedding may seem archaic, even to those who aren’t dyed-in-the-wool anti-monarchists. But many aspects of the show we know today are a relatively recent invention. If we lived in the 15th century, say, the marital prospects of the monarch and their children really would have mattered to our…

As May 19 approaches, the royal wedding news cycle is accelerating as relentlessly as the Gravitron at a county fair, its centrifugal force damn near flinging my brains onto the ceiling.
