I am not an avid royalist, however I could not let this monumental occassion pass without a mention on my blog. From 8 o'clock yesterday morning I sat glued to my television screen, taking in every wonderful moment of the Royal couples big day. I was joined by my dear friend at ten o'clock & we both sat 'oohing' & 'aahhing' as the guests arrived. I tried to take in every single little detail as I really want to remember the day for a long, long time. I was very young when Prince Williams' parents married & can only vaguely remember a few details (mainly Lady Diana's dress being very crumpled as she entered the cathedral). It was nice to see a few celebrities there too (David Beckham looked very handsome & Victoria was stunning but I do wish she would smile more often, & what on earth was wrong with Tara Palmer Tompkinsons' nose??!!) You could almost feel the excitement in London as the bridesmaids & pageboys exited the hotel & got into the waiting cars as you knew that the next person to leave would be the bride. And didn't she look stunning!! A beautiful, elegant dress that wasn't overfussy & distracting from Kates' natural beauty, she wore the dress rather than the dress wore her. Even before the commentator mentioned it I said to my friend that it reminded me of Grace Kelly's wedding dress. And wasn't it heartwarming to read Prince Williams' lips as he saw her for the first time "You look lovely, you look beautiful."
I wish I had being able to be in London yesterday to see everything first hand & soak in the atmosphere (although a better view was had watching it on the television), the crowds were very well behaved & controlled and it is events like this that make me very proud to be British & what makes Britain Great. I wish both the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge a very happy marriage. Congratulations!!
