Eric Idle and Sir Ben Kingsley were among the British celebs in Hollywood talking about the excitement surrounding the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Some of our finest exports turned out to celebrate Brit Week at the British Consul General's Residence in Los Angeles where they were bombarded with royal-related questions from the mostly American news crews.

"I'll be getting up and putting a dress on," Monty Python star Eric joked. "I have my wedding dress all chosen, I borrowed it from Michael Palin!"

The comedian teased: "Is there anything to look forward to in becoming a married man? You can be in the wrong all the time, that's a thing he can look forward to."

Sir Ben admitted "Strictly between you and me I won't be getting up to watch it. I will be watching a recording of it definitely and I'm very happy for them, they seem a great couple."

Brothers And Sisters star Matthew Rhys said he understood why people were excited about the big day.

"Everyone loves a wedding because it reinforces romantic notions," he said.

Actress Jacqueline Bissett said Kate Middleton faces "a very hard job".

"I'm sure it'll be easier for [Prince William] than her because she's going to have all the fashion aspect, not easy, I think, being criticised."

Gemini:

Someone will break a promise to you, which is disappointing. Don't let this setback stop you from crossing the finish line. You may have to submit an entry late or attend the last few minutes of a meeting, but take heart. Rallying in the midst of difficult circumstances will count in your favour. Someone else may get a job or scholarship, but you'll be in the running for the next opportunity. In the meantime, have an alternative plan ready when relying on others for help.More
