Why overshadow the Waity-Katie of the Americas?

Prince William, even though your lovely fiancée Kate Middleton has been patiently waiting for eight long years for you to finally make her your wife and a princess, poor Jessica Simpson has been dying to be married since before her first marriage at 22 years old. Jess, a Southern Belle, is America’s Sweetheart. Her first marriage to Nick Lachey didn’t work out, and we all watched as John Mayer, Tony Romo and countless turned out to be duds, as well. We pulled for her every time, just like we’re pulling for you and Kate!

You waited eight years — couldn’t you have waited just a little while longer to announce your big news? Jess too has been waiting (not-so-patiently) for five years for her Prince Charming, and she deserves to bask in the delight of her engagement… even if she did attempt to steal ex-husband Nick Lachey‘s thunder.

We expected more from you, William! You could have blamed it on the Queen!
