The Royal Wedding
Okay, alright...I admit it. I woke up at 2 a.m. Friday morning to watch the royal wedding. I was exhausted, but I had to see Kate's (now Catherine) beautiful wedding dress. So, I got up and nothing was happening. Guests were just beginning to arrive at Westminster Abbey and, frankly, I wasn't much interested. So, set the alarm and went back to sleep until 3:30, at which time I was able to see the wedding party begin to arrive. Then came the marvelous Kate in a dress that reminds me of the one worn by Grace Kelly when she married the Prince of Monaco (was that on purpose, or coincidental?). I watched until the couple exchanged vows and then sleep overtook me. Yesterday, I was exhausted and spent much of the day watching replays of the wedding celebrations. It was such great fun. I was quite taken by the way Prince William looks at and behaves towards his now wife, so differently from how his father behaved towards Diana, Princess of Wales. After all the coverage that I have watched both before and after the wedding, I have come to the conclusion that this one is a love match and I sure hope it all stays that way.
Anyone else out there watch the festivities? How about my friends across the pond?
