Before you groan and click away, how can you groan and click away?
This whole royal wedding thing is so exciting. A real prince, who is someday going to be a king, is about to marry a “commoner.” His college sweetheart, not some arranged marriage to a woman he’s never met! I’d call that progress.
So in honor of progress, and my 8th grade super-crush on Wills
my quick takes this week are dedicated to all things Royal wedding.
The wedding coverage begins at 4am! I will not be getting up at 4 am; I think I’ll plan a 6 am wake up call so I don’t miss any of the good stuff. I’ll be watching the special “Good Morning America” that will be broadcasting from London.
I first learned of Prince William when I was in 8th grade. That was the year Princess Diana died. Of course he was (1) a prince (2) two years older than me and (3) very cute.
On the other hand, my crush has long since passed. That might be because age has not done all for Wills one might have hoped.
Seems he has begun to resemble Dad more than Mum with age. Pity.
Now his bride-to-be…that is another story.
I might have a little crush on her.
She is so stylish. Some of her outfit choices, particularly bathing suits, are not even close to modest, but I do just love some of her more formal wardrobe.
What I really love is that the royals have decided they do not want wedding gifts. Instead, they are asking for donations to be made to a charity they have set up; the Berkshire Community Foundation.
You can read about it here.
Did I mention I lover her fabulous sense of style?
I wish I owned this outfit. Or that I had somewhere to wear a beret. Atticus, please take me somewhere where I can wear a beret. Preferably Paris.
And because it deserves its own quick take
Show us the bling Kate!
I think it’s really nice that Wills wanted to use his mother’s ring for Kate.
The center diamond in my engagement ring was the diamond from my mother’s ring, which was the diamond in my great-grandmother Sarah’s (who I am named after) ring. I love the family heirlooms.
And in case you’ve read this far wondering, “who cares?”
The reason people like this kind of stuff is because:
(1) none of us will ever be royalty, and we all have a secret voueyeristic side, and we want to see how the filthy rich people do things.
(2) It’s a sweet love story, and only those with the hardest of hearts don’t like a love story.
(3) Just about every woman has at some point probably had daydreams of being a princess.
(4). With all of the other horrible, depressing things going on in the world, it’s nice to see something happy. It’s a modern day fairy tale, and I like it. So there.
Are you going to watch any of the coverage? What do you think of Kate? Or could you not care less? I’d love to know!
Have a happy weekend folks, and please say a prayer for me. I am having the first of two root canals on Saturday. Blech.
