I remember the last ‘fairytale’ royal wedding. Diana was beautiful, blushing and as I saw it a ‘real’ princess. I was 7 so I didn’t understand much beyond the excitement, dress, ceremony and oh, *sigh* the dress. I remember how beautiful she was, the fete we had at school the day before and sitting at home with my Mum and Granny watching it.
I remember how excited I was seeing the first official photos of Prince William on tour in Australia in his lovely romper suit.
Also thinking how awful it was that I was too old for him and that I would never marry the future king!
Well Kate Middleton has done for me completely!
Big Corporate Supermarket Boss is very kindly giving me an extra day off to see it and I can’t wait. I shall watch all of it and then planning to open the back gate to our lane and having the local kids come by for burgers and cakes.
I shall let you know what I thought after it’s all over.
I didn’t take these photos. I know I have surprised you there.
I know Mario Testino took the last one and they are all reproduced here from google images.
What are you doing to celebrate or are you a republican? Actually, if you are a republican, I don’t think I want to know today.
