Royal Wedding... 4/29/11
I can't help myself. I like the fairy tale princess and prince stuff. I was a teenager when Diana and Charles got married and it was exciting and thrilling. So, today as Kate and William tied the knot, it held a special place in my heart.
Admittedly I had a little melancholy nostalgia pang in my stomach. Watching today's royal wedding definitely brought back memories of Charles and Diana's wedding as well as the fact that Diana is no longer with us. Now that I am a mother myself, I had the heartstrings tugging that Diana was not here to see her baby boy get married to his Princess.
But I also had the warm and fuzzy feelings for Kate and Will. The excitement of Kate's beautiful wedding dress (which was very "Grace Kellyish"...awesome) and her handsome prince dressed in his red military uniform. The carriage ride after the ceremony, the waves, their smiling glowing faces, and then of course, "The Kiss" on the balcony. They're just so cute.
I wasn't even horrified at the Queen's Canary Yellow Suit...although it made me think of Tweety Bird. Do you think she has her crown on under that hat?
The ceremony was full of color, happiness, and hope. Thank goodness for a little "good news" and a happy occasion in the world today. Well done Kate and Will!!!
