Prince William and Kate Middleton will be married in three days. Until then, royal-fatigued media outlets will have to keep coming up with new and highly-specific ways of covering the wedding. Here are some of the ways newspapers managed to keep the couple and the ceremony in the news. Here's the T-minus 3 update. Check back tomorrow for T-minus 2, and check out past installments here.
"Royal wedding rain may be a treat for history buffs" -- CBS News
Not only will rain not ruin the ceremony, a few showers actually have the potential to enhance Friday's celebration, at least for history buffs watching at home. Why? Because if there's a storm, Prince William and Kate Middleton won't be able to travel to Buckingham Palace in an "open-top 1902 red and gold State Landau" as planned. Instead, they'll be forced "leave Westminster Abbey in the glass coach that Lady Diana took to St. Paul's Cathedral on July 29, 1981." That does sound historic.
"Royal wedding flowers: All the details" -- People
Kate Middleton's bridal bouquet, on the other hand, will not be a treat for history lovers. Speculation is she's passing on the traditional all-white blossoms for a combination of azaleas, lilacs, rhododendron and wisteria.
