It was quite splendid. Not only was Catherine absolutely breath-taking, she and William truly look madly deeply in love.
How can one not smile and the thought that finally, Royalty marrying for love, and not pre-arranged. They are both 29 (okay William is almost 29) and they have had the opportunity to live a bit and not jump into something. Diana & Charles had all of 13 dates prior to their wedding... William has known Catherine for nearly ten years!
I know people are whining about the hoopla and expense of this Fairytale Wedding, and I say pooh-pooh to you! Personally a little, happy joyous news and sugar & spice is a welcome change to our depressing state of the world. Yes, yes, the cost of this wedding could have given a lot of charities a lot of help... HOWEVER~
Did you know that the Royal couple are passionate about many charities and participate in raising awareness & money for these charities. Millions of dollars will be given to charities due to Catherine & William's wedding and exposure of causes.
- Change Lives through Arts & Sports
- Children Fulfilling their Potential
- Support for Service Personnel & their Families
- Help & Care At Home
- Conservation for Future Generations
Catherine chose to keep the Royal Wedding rather simple. William had his brother Harry as The Best Man, and Catherine had her Sister Pippa as The Maid of Honor.
My morning was perfect. I woke at 4:30am, walked a few blocks over to my dear friend Jill's house, where she had a lovely Royal Breakfast for us. We were joined by another dear friend, Tammy.

And some Fresh Strawberries and Cream♥
I really enjoyed this wedding! I chatted and ate while the ceremony was taking place, I didn't have to strain to get a good view, and I got the best birds eye view! (Plus I didn't have to buy a gift!).
What a fun day I have had, although I'm a bit sleepy now.
Cheerio To our lovely new Princess and her Prince Charming!
~May they Live Happily Ever After~
