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?

I was up at 5:00 a.m.(ish); just in time to see Kate making her way to Westminster Abbey. They looked so calm! I guess after eight years of dating, this was just the natural next step for them.

That dress was so beautiful, and so fitting for her personality. I'm glad to see modesty back in fashion!

I was up at 2 a.m. and wanted to turn on the TV but my room mate in my hospital room was sleeping and I was afraid I would wake her. Now that you've told me that nothing much happened until 3:30 I am glad I just waited until morning and watched the re-runs. I watched it off and on all day yesterday and enjoyed every minute of it. They are a darling couple and do seem to be very much in love. I wish them both well. I know that living their life in a media fish bowl must be very hard.
Have a nice week.
