The wedding

Well, the whole nation was glued to the TV if they weren't crowding the streets of London for a glimpse of the glittering couple. We went to the beach. I was quite happy to watch the edited highlights later - though we did listen to some of the service in the car until I started to doze off. Not a good idea when I was driving. I understand the need for tradition and solemnity etc etc but how about a touch of modernity and reality? Don't want to be mean so I'll say no more - lovely dress (I happened to wear Nottingham lace too) - though our reception was in a local pub and I didn't get a honeymoon until nine months later. Oh no, not for that reason - kids came much later. But now the parties are all over and we Brits can go back to being glum.

While I'd never sit down and watch something like that, something in me likes that fact that there is a place on Earth where a royal wedding can still take place, pomp and all. Maybe it's the secret desire to be king and rule the world. Besides, they seem like a nice couple. Of course, he could be beating the hell out of here for all I know.
