Giles and Sue's Royal Wedding

Once again the food critic Giles Coren and the comedian Sue Perkins, joined forces to bring us another hilarious programme - this time their own Royal Wedding. I loved their Supersizers Go.. programmes where they dressed in period costume and  ate their way thorough history from the Romans to the 1970s, and was really looking forward to this latest instalment. I was not disappointed.  This time they ate their way thorough 500 years of history in one episode! comically portraying most of the royal couples since Henry VIII - It was hilarious. They were Edward VII and Princess Alexandra for the engagement photo, George IV and Princess Caroline for the ceremony and William and Kate for the Wedding Breakfast - where they ate multiple courses, each one from a different royal wedding. They also spent some time prancing through the rooms of a country house dressed as other royal couples. Their programmes are always hilarious, stuffed full with facts and with a topping of gorgeous historical costumes. This one was no exception. :)

  2. Yes I think so. I really want to see what the dress looks like. :)

  3. Have you seen the regency supersizers? Giles looks rather dashing in the regency outfit.
