This chapter travels to the royal wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William to consider how celebrity weddings have always structured the modern white wedding. By interviewing nearly one hundred people over three days of royal wedding celebrations in London, Essig traces how the fantasy of the perfect wedding is married to notions of whiteness as pure and innocent, normative gender roles, and a deep connection to citizenship.
