I love a good fairy tale!
Prince William and Kate Middleton are finally getting married. The event is going to be exciting, extravagant… and very early in the morning! But I am ready to attend.
I was there when Princess Diana and Prince Charles were married on July 29th, 1981. Diana looked so beautiful in her enormous taffeta and lace dress – with 25 feet of train! Charles, perhaps not the most handsome of princes, managed to pull off a princely look in his full dress naval commander uniform. Do you remember when Diana and Charles kissed on the balcony? I witnessed a fairy tale come to life, in my living room, sipping mimosas and eating scones with friends.
Unfortunately, many people will be quick to point out, there’s no such thing as a real-life fairy tale. And for Charles and Diana, that proved to be true. But for William and Kate, I’m going to clap my hands, because I believe in magic and in happily-ever-after. I refuse to ever let real-life fairy tales fade away to Neverland.
In just a few hours, I will be watching Kate, the commoner, become Princess Catherine and marry her Prince William, and I’m so excited! The dress, the ring, the cake, the veil, the celebrity guest list. Oh, there’s SO much to discuss about the Royal Wedding –
Will you be watching with me?
Wedding refreshments: tea and scones!
