A Royal Occasion

Whether you loved or hated the coverage of the Royal Wedding, you had an emotion to it. Whether you liked it, disliked it, or were neutral–all feelings.

I’ve never been overly into it. I didn’t even really watch it this morning. Funny, when my boyfriend turned the TV on this morning, and it was on, I saw Pippa and thought it was Kate and wondered to myself how simple her dress was. I’ve since realized that was her sister.

The monarchy fascinates me. I don’t really understand how it all works. Who am I though? I’m just some bloody American.  Words like “servants” “commoner” etc. just seem so odd to me. They seem so 1600s. We carry on tradition in America, but obviously things have progressed with time. There were so many traditions carried on today and things within the Royal Wedding that has been passed down from centuries ago.

I enjoyed getting a recap this evening on news channels. I was able to watch the entire thing in an hour. I’ll have to say, one of my favorite moments was her face on the balcony as the word, “Wow” slipped out from her mouth in utter surprise. As she is now a princess, Duchess of Cambridge.

From the time we’re little girls, the idea of being a “princess” surrounds us from Disney movies to Halloween costumes. It’s not very often, or in fact hasn’t happened, that a normal person becomes royalty. I don’t even understand what it means. But if you’re up for the challenge, sounds like a good life.

I look forward to seeing what Kate will do with her new title. I really respected how Diana spent so much time in her charity work and it’s unfortunate of what happened. I just hope people, myself included, don’t compare William’s new bride to his mother.
