'Today' Halloween Costumes Take Us Back to the Royal Wedding (VIDEO)

by Chris Harnick, posted Oct 31st 2011 10:10AM
Today Halloween Costumes'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC) took the Royal Wedding, the biggest crossover news story of the year, and turned it into one very spectacular group Halloween costume.

For a few minutes, it looked like the show had started to play the wrong video. Call it one sweet trick, followed by a very royal treat as Matt Lauer appeared as Prince William, decked out in full British military dress. Ann Curry slipped into a version of Kate Middleton's stunning gown, Al Roker donned his best wig and dressed as Prince Harry, Natalie Morales channeled her best Pippa, and Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb put on their party hats and dressed as Beatrice and Eugenie, the daughters of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson.

To round out the cast, Savannah Guthrie was tapped to play Prince Charles and former 'Today' co-host Meredith Vieira made a surprise return visit to the show as Queen Elizabeth, complete with a gaggle of corgis.

To add more credibility to the affair, 'Today' used the original Royal Wedding commentary done by Lauer and Vieira at the actual wedding.

I thought maybe they would dress Anne Curry up as someone with a personality, since she has none of her own

Natalie looked beautiful. Ann needed a heavier veil, she may have the seniority to play a princess but she is long past the age. I enjoyed seeing Meridith again.

I thought it was the cutest theme they have done. Except for poor Kathie Lee who tried to, as usual, steal the show. Otherwise, it was very clever and had to involve months of work to pull it off so beautifully.
