I tuned in about the time Charles & Camilla we were leaving Clarence House for Westminster Abbey. Enjoyed every minute of the thing too. Had been too busy to watch much of the hype and lead-up to the Royal Wedding, so was looking at it with very fresh eyes and enjoyment.
Royal Wedding … in every sense of the word.
I predicted almost exactly what Kate (Catherine) would wear also . …. who needs tv commentators? I knew it would be straight and simple with lace arms and shoulders covered. Oh, and with a long train, but not so long to be ridiculous.
Poor girl though, I thought she was going to pass out! And Prince William, truly a man now. He had a very commanding presence.
Anyone else admitting to watching? I’m sure there is at least one who did not (Chickie) … but things I found fascinating:
- The trees in the Abbey. Stunning!
- The very simple wedding party (sister/brother/brother)
- Imaging how it would feel to be Mr. Middleton, walking your daughter down the aisle at Westminster Abbey. Truly amazing.
- Imaging how it would feel to be the Middletons as you join Charles & Camilla in the carriage ride back to The Palace and join the family on the balcony! Seriously, no one could dream that this would ever happen to them.
- The hats. So fun. Except for that one hideous thing on the top of a certain red-headed cousin royal. What the heck was that?
And the bride? More elegance and class in her than in most of the rest of the royals put together! She is stunning.
The groom? This boy is now a man and I’m thinking no one should be crossing him. Woe be unto anyone who tries to make his wife into a media target. And somehow, he reminded me of Prince Albert standing up at the altar with his bride.
That military uniform … stunning. She’s stunning. They are stunning.
And I wish them a very wonderful married life. They deserve it.
Here in OK, someone else was flying the flag for England. Literally.
For the rest of my day: Am missing a work baby shower for my babygirl … just not feeling up to snuff today. Must have a little virus or sumthin’. I hope she gets lots of goodies.
