April 29th is a big day for United Kingdom. That’s the day Prince William of Wales is set to marry the lovely Kate Middleton, his long-time college sweetheart. The couple, who have been together for eight years, became engaged this past November in Kenya. England has been in an excited uproar in preparation of the big day, which is proving to be one of the most exciting events to take place since the marriage of Prince Charles to Princess Diana 30 years ago. In fact – according to Reuters – it’s getting 90,000 mentions a day on the Internet (We’re jumping right on that bandwagon).
In this time of war, earthquakes, poverty and disease – it’s nice to have something positive to look forward to, and every where you turn you’re bound to run into gossip, trivia and new facts about the royal wedding. Some stuff is interesting – such as what the royal carriage will look like, who all is attending, what the family is doing etc. Some information isn’t as relevant (but still interesting) like the article I read in the supermarket about the avid fan who knitted a wedding cake for the couple. (at least it won’t spoil?)
It’s a little sad that another Prince is off the market. I love royalty, and will readily admit that as I young girl growing up I harbored secret fantasies about one day becoming a Princess. It’s not in my destiny, so I’m comfortable living vicariously through Kate Middleton. I wish them a long and happy marriage, and eagerly look forward to watching the procession April 29th… through a live stream on Youtube (oh Youtube, where would I be WITHOUT you?!).
And good luck Harry – you’re the last hope for thousands of young girls. My Advice? Double-up on your security.
