A Right Royal Ruckus

An estimated 2billion people worldwide tuned in to watch the Royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton... and i was one of them. I watched as Kate Middleton stepped out of the car at Westminster Abbey, wearing a beautiful Alexander McQueen wedding dress; i watched as William Arthur Philip Louis (yes that's his real name) struggled to push the ring onto Kate's finger; i watched as they delighted crowds of well wishers at Buckingham Palace with not one, but two kisses and i watched as they drove away in a blue Aston Martin appropriately decorated with wedding balloons. But what made this Royal wedding worth watching was not the dress, the crowd, or even the prince, nope; it was Kate, a non Royal, non dignitary, go from regular to regal and marry into one of the most historical families this world has to offer. And boy did she do it with grace and poise, she was a true Cinderella, minus the rags and the glass slippers.

Congratulations Kate & William

Yes go on lap it up, there's no cynicism or sarcasm in this post. It's not often you will see us Brits celebrate such mushy nonsense, so enjoy it while you can.

    To me, it didn't have the same allure as Charles and Di, thanks to the tabloids. There was too much overexposure, and has been for years. Back in 1981, the wedding was a glimpse into the royal culture. Everyone was in awe.

    Now, all we need to do is open up some of the smut mags to see at least 4 or 5 princes/princesses in various stages of scandal or undress...

    The wedding ceremony itself was beautiful. I hope their marriage is a happy, long-lasting one.

    And the evil stepmothers. I’m pretty sure Kate has a loving family. Pretty sure. :P

    An alarming number of publications seem rather obsessed with Pippa Middleton’s bum.

    It was beautiful and I caught the highlight reel...not the whole long live feed. I hope they have a long and happy life together.

    I blogged that I wouldn't watch it, but did end up seeing most of it. I was impressed. Like Idaho, Princess Di and Prince Charles had more allure to it without all of the build up (since there was no internet), but this still was a classy event. I wish we had classy events like that here in the states. Everything is a reality show over here.

    @Lost.in.Idaho I wasn't born when Princess Di got hitched so perhaps that's why i feel more attached to this union. I do agree that the tabloids spoil the mystery though.

    @Drake Yes i think her Pippa stole a little attention too. Her and Prince Harry seemed pretty flirty too, maybe there's another wedding on the cards :P

    @Jewels Yes it was long and i must confess i didn't watch the bits where they were interviewing people as it got pretty repetitive.

    @Thank Q I know what you mean about the American reality show culture, most of the shows i watch over here that come from the states are all bit sugary and cheesy for my liking.
