The Royal Wedding
Well, it's kind of like a fairy tale, right? "Commoner" meets prince, they get married, they live happily ever after. Not quite. I put commoner in quotes because despite Miss Middleton's lack of a title, I hardly consider someone who attended exclusive and expensive private schools, common. Maybe in ye olde Britain but in a more socially mobile society as much of the world is, I beg to differ. Then there's the fact that it's taken eight years which has been excruciating for this royal watcher.
And then there's the ending, which we obviously cannot predict. I think the time that they have taken to get to know each other and to acquaint Kate with royal life will add immeasurably to their personal happiness. I know that I will continue to be a royal watcher and I wish them all the best on this, their wedding day!
