Royal Wedding

I spent the weekend watching five plus hours of the BBC's coverage of Kate and William's Royal Wedding.   Because of reporters constantly mentioning Princess Diana, I started googling her.  I didn't know much about Princess Diana when she was alive, but she seemed pretty extraordinary.  As if it wasn't difficult enough for Prince William to be in Westminster Abbey, he will get to watch news reporters talking about Princess Diana's funeral also taking place in Westminster Abbey; like he didn't know that already.  Her death was so sad; he was really close to her.  It's been over ten years since her death and she is still a very inspirational person.  She makes me want to get off my ass and do something.

The very stylish Kate Middleton is now a Princess/Duchess.  I think this woman is brilliant.  The tabloids called her Katie Waitie, but look who's laughing now...  They don't even have a prenup.  Then again, they have been together for eight years.

As much as it would be nice to be a princess, there is just too much pressure to behave, do "stuff," and look good all the time.  I am not saying I would turn it down if offered, but I would be aware of the many cons.


  1. It definitely does not allow for any bad or grumpy days.

  2. Did you see the latest? They snapped pics of Kate at the grocery store.
