My Royal Wedding

So.... Prince William and Kate Middleton are getting married today. So what's that got to do with me, eh?

Well, nothing really.

But then, I've always been a sucker for beautiful weddings. I enjoy looking at flowers, cakes and wedding decor and so I'm curious to see what it's going to be like for them. They look happy enough on TV, and every time I see them on screen I say a silent prayer for their marriage. Marriage has its hard times for even the perfect couple (Me and Ash??) But imagine the added stress of public scrutiny thats already on them! I hope they find happiness in each other and cherish the love they share. I hope that they remain faithful and model a good family to millions watching them.

um... ok..... I also have a confession to make. As a young girl, Prince Wil was one of my first crushes. I guess it came from knowing that the only way I could become a real life princess was to marry a prince. Ha ha...

So, am I heartbroken? a twinge of jealousy towards Kate maybe?? NO way!! Whatever said and done, I know I hate it when even my nosey neighbours want to know what's happening at home. Imagine a life where you have a Royal Photographer tagging along on your family holidays!

And then again, I used to also dream of falling in love and marrying a man who sang, played the guitar and rode a big motorbike. And that dream was more persistant.....And it did come true!! So what if my wedding cake was a horrible mess, and my florist gave me all the wrong flowers? I had a beautiful wedding ceremony and I married my own prince charming - the man of my dreams!!

And also, I happen to be the daughter of a king - the King of Kings! That makes me a princess, and my wedding a Royal Wedding!!


  1. I really would like to know how many women/ladies /girls out there have this 'sang, played guitar, rode a bike' preference?? Seriously what is it with us females???
    I am a sucker for any fairy tale kinda story.. I sat with a box of tissue , glued to the TV and watched from start to finish Princess Diana's funeral. But since I just got off reading the book 'India after Gandhi'.. not in a mood to look at anything Brit and say"aww sweet..'

  2. I was sooo tired and overslept the wedding... mad at myself!
    But Prince William was one of my first crushes as well :)

  3. @Mannaunty: U n me for sure... and then I bet there are a hundred more.

    @Tanya: I know... the only real life Prince charming we all knew!
