Today recreated the best day of the year (April 29th) for their annual Halloween show this morning. Using actual footage from NBC’s coverage of the royal wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton, Matt Lauer and company dressed up as the members of the royal family and the Middleton sisters. Fans lined the plaza and waved Union Jacks as they waited for the arrival of morning television royalty.
Ann Curry was the luckiest duck of all, ’cause she got to be HRH Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. Natalie Morales looked UH-amaing in Pippa’s famous Alexander McQueen satin number, while Lauer and Al Roker dressed as Princes William and Harry, respectively. Samantha Guthrie put on a pair of dumbo ears to play Prince Charles (although she looked more like Katrina Johnson as Ross Perot from All That).
OF COURSE Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford dressed up as Fergie’s kids. Kotb went as Princess Eugenie and Gifford as Princess Beatrice. Naturally, Gifford overdid it. Then, in came Sarah Haines as a tres prego Victoria Beckham.
What’s a royal occasion without Her Majesty? Meredith Vieira put on the buttercup yellow Angela Kelly coat that Queen Elizabeth wore to her grandson’s nuptials, complete with a few corgis to match! Check out the video below.
