First and foremost, I have to say that I was not a follower of Will and Kate during their dating years. As they say, I have ‘jumped the wagon’ when I saw articles about the two in various magazine and internet articles. When their engagement was announced, I was like “Okay… that’s interesting.” But days, weeks even, before the big day, I found myself eager to find out as much as I could about Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Their engagement pictures:
They look sweet, don’t they? You can’t doubt the love and affection they feel for each other, which I think is one of the reasons why there’s so much hype around their wedding. Kate a ‘commoner’, therefore she would be a princess upon marriage. She symbolizes the happily ever after. She’s the Cinderella of this real-life fairytale.
As I know you all are aware, today is the day of their wedding (Friday April 29, 2011). I’ve eagerly anticipated it: I’ve scouted the web and the TV channels and found out days in advance that you can watch the wedding live in Yahoo! and YouTube if you want to catch it online; but I opted for the TV route, and I caught everything in TalkTV. They had a special and everything… of course, I jumped between that and the GMA news channel. I’ve got to show support for my country, after all.
The wedding was wonderful. There were hats everywhere in every shape, size and color. Harry was there supporting his brother (and I noticed that yes, he did have more hair that Will, not to mention more medals ^_^). Kate’s dress was wonderful. She was beautiful, elegant, graceful and, more importantly, she did not mess up Will’s full name. (Because you’ve got to admit, William Arthur Philip Louis is a mouthful.)
And of course, no wedding, royal or not, is complete without The Kiss — yeah, capital letters and all. Unfortunately, seeing as Will and Kate got married in Westminster Abbey, they weren’t allowed to kiss. They did make up for it, though, when they smooched twice when they were in the balcony of Buckingham Palace (just like Princess Diana Prince Charles).
