Last Thursday night here in Kauai, Bree and I stayed up until midnight to watch the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton (along with a few billion other people!).
A few things came to mind as I sat there watching the elaborate ceremony:
- Princess Diana should have been there.
- Camilla annoys me.
- William looked so much better before he took his hat off. (Sorry, I know that’s mean.)
- Kate’s train was too short. Way too short.
- The plain gold band was just so… plain.
And then I realized: Just because this was a Royal Wedding doesn’t mean that the bride and groom couldn’t have their special day just the way they wanted it.
I mean, who am I to rain on their parade just because I wanted the bride’s gown to have a longer train!?
Kate looked gorgeous and elegant and, most importantly, like herself. And if the rumors are true and she did her own makeup I think she did a fantastic job.
I still have one small beef, though. I HATE that she is styled as Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. Duchess?
Fergie is a Duchess. Camilla is a Duchess. Does Kate really have to be a Duchess? Gah!
To me, she is Princess Kate.
