Gotta Watch: Royal wedding revue

From wedding pizzas to a "Royal Virility Brew," final preparations are continuing for the Royal Wedding.  In one week, history will be made in Britain's first royal hoopla in decades.  Whether you're a Brit or not, you'll love today's Gotta Watch blog, where we'll bring you some fun factoids about the wedding.

Prince William to be suited up on Savile Row - Savile Row is a London street known for its men's tailor shops.  Fashion designer and bespoke tailor Ozwald Boateng takes CNN down Savile Row and discusses what Prince William will be wearing on his big day.

The Royal Wedding dress: A history - We're wondering what Catherine Middleton will be wearing next week, but what about the fashion choices of previous royal brides?  The senior curator at Kensington Palace gives us a look at royal gowns dating back as far as 1860.

'Don't touch the Queen' - "No fist bumps, no kissing on the cheek," says CNN's Isha Sesay to Anderson Cooper. Anderson gets schooled in royal protocol 101 and British food before the wedding. Just in case he meets the queen.

Watch Anderson Cooper 360° weeknights 8pm ET. For the latest from AC360° click here.

    Why would any self respecting, breathing mammal give a crap about those two pointless, do nothing, seriously ugly, tax payer thieves. Especially in light of the last two Royal marriage fiascos...?? For god sake let’s move onto real world concerns, not the senseless last breath dribble of a sad little inconsequential dying country...

      Seriously dude, do they let them steal tax-payers? Is that still allowed? What do they do with them?

    They declined the invitation. Too busy running a country, and all.

    @Bay of Pigs Vet and Cesar of 1:59: There was no Bay of Pigs stupid block heads. The JFK Administration cancelled it. They left the rebels in the cold- a betrayal. So save your alligator tears you pair of mother plucking pigs-real Cesar.

    @WoW: you're welcome. Don't eat any meat pies while visiting England!

      I sure won't, Mad Tax-Payers disease can be really nasty. Bluemax77's words of wisdom have turned out to be a real life-saver as I plan to go to Londonshire very soon.

    But...I like meat pies.
    I don't really care what you have to do to get the meat. I need a lot of protein...about 175-180 grams a day. Otherwise my workouts don't produce anything.
    (Please–don't anybody start talking about soy-anything.)

      Well, God made animals out of meat, so it would be rude not to eat them. I do like soy sauce though, in a good beef stir-fry.

    @ WoW:
    I like soy SAUCE, too, even when I pour it compulsively on rice.
    I just don't want to be conned into lying (to a pushy hostess, for courtesy) that soy products taste exactly the way meat does.

      Stands to reason they can't taste like meat. If a cow was made of soy products it would be a vegetable.

    @Cesar of 1:14 and 1:59: You are really funny. You sound so serious, but you're joking of course. BTW, the only pig I like is pig in a blanket and bacon.
