The universal coverage of The Royal Wedding is truly incredible. Images are continuing to emerge weeks after the once in a lifetime event. One particular image was brought to my attention via Facebook earlier today and, without a doubt, the playful image was followed by countless comments and “likes.”
It’s remarkable how we the viewer, instantly recognize the monumental event of William and Kate and immediately directly compare it to the story of Cinderella. Clearly Disney’s image has been altered in order to better show the comparison. More obviously, William is Prince Charming and Kate is Cinderella, and the two that resemble Cinderella’s evil stepsisters are princesses of the royal family.
With the endless media attention, from their engagement to the big day, William and Kate have made completely made a name for themselves: Formerly Price William and Kate Middleton, together are now William and Kate. Fortunately, it didn’t get a far as Brangelina, but let’s be serious, they had to stay classy considering William is second in line to the throne.
This all makes me wonder…can “William and Kate” now be considered a brand?
