I was lucky enough this morning when I arose, to turn on the telly and found the beginning of the wedding of Katherine and William. I waited in breathless anticipation for her to emerge from the hotel and see what she wore. And I wasn't disappointed.
She was lovely. Is lovely. Stunning really, whey you think now, she's a Princess. I couldn't be happier for the both of them. More of a fairy tale than Charles and Diana I think, because Kate is a modern woman. She's gone through so much with Will already, breaking up, getting back together, the papparazzi, living together, and hey, meeting the Queen. That could really do a lesser woman in, I think.
As a writer of romance, and growing up with the Disney Princess model, I am over the moon, that a simple common girl, finally gets to marry the Prince of her dreams. Isn't that what we all want on our wedding day? Even though I've never been married, I'd still like to feel like a Princess if I ever did marry. I don't think that feeling ever goes away, no matter how old (or cynical) you are.
I admit, I cried. I always cry at weddings. Even if they are on the telly. I even cried when they sang God Save the Queen. I cried when they kissed on the balconey. And yay! They kissed twice.
For all his royal bearing, I think William was just the cutest thing on the balconey. I could see in his face how much he loves Kate. And Kate, although overwhelmed (I mean, who wouldn't be, she's a Princess now) she adores Will.
I wish them every happiness in the world. I hope they live a full and loving life filled with everything their hearts desire.
God save the Queen. God save William and Katherine.
Did anyone else watch? Did anyone else cry?
