Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer get geared up for the royal wedding.
The TV duo, who are currently presenting new Channel 4 show Vacation, Vacation, Vacation, posed for a photo shoot in this week’s heat magazine.
Kirstie, who admits to being very excited about the impending royal nuptials, said: “We are at Meadowgate – the Homemade Home house – with all four boys. That’s my stepsons and my two boys. They don’t give a monkey’s about the wedding. Whereas I am obsessed. Obsessed. I love everything about it – it’s a wedding. I want to sit there and see what people are wearing, see the dress, the whole thing. Actually, my son said to me the other day, “I’m marrying Jasper” – that’s his friend from school – “it’s better that way so that no one has to wear a dress.” He’s four and a half.”
Phil said: “I want to give the family a day they’ll remember. I remember the Queen’s Jubilee. I would have been five or six, but I remember it as a real community day – everybody out on the streets helping each other, tugs of war and bunting, and everybody having a really jolly time. We’ve tried to shut off the road, but we were turned down by the local council.”
Speculating about the royal dressmaker, Kirstie added: “My designer choice would be Bruce Oldfield. I still believe it’s worth putting a good hundred quid on him. I have no reason to say that at all, but a tiny bit inside me is saying that all this stuff about the brilliant, fantastic woman at Alexander McQueen… I do think she’s amazing – I buy a lot of McQueen – at least one thing a season, but my gut tells me that it’ll be someone a tad more establishment.”
