Wow, is all I can say.
I can remember the street party with Charles and Diana, it was brilliant for a young child as I was at the time. If you have been reading the last few days i’v been away for a short break. My wife asked me if I wanted to watch the royal wedding on friday. My answer was “Its not really a big thing anymore, so I don’t really care either way” That was that and we left with no set plan to watch.
We came back late last night as traffic and road closures around London could have made the journey back today hectic. Hence this morning I woke, turned the tv on in the bedroom, there in 42″ of screen was the Royal Wedding. Knowing that the wife would love to watch this I went and made a pot of coffee. We then proceeded to sit in bed drink three cups of coffee, not even stoping to brush our teeth.
It was a Royal Wedding fest.
By the time Kate Middleton was meant to leave the hotel I was actually excited to see the dress. The two Princes where looking nobel and royal. In my imagination my to boys Weddings were playing out. Then I was struck by the people lining the streets of London. The excitement must have been palpable and the sense of a united interest Great. I was happy to be english today and with all the bad happening in the world today it felt good to be proud of being British.
My wife was very excited to see the evening dress only moments ago, tomorrow morning we are to see the going away dress. As for my comment “Its not really a big thing anymore” I was wrong all weddings are a big thing and the royal wedding is the biggest.
It will be interesting to see what Prince Harry will do on his big day.
