Someday My Prince Will Come

It just won't be this prince!

Okay, so it's a bit silly.  I mean, he's a lot younger than me.  He lives a long long way away from where I do.  We come from totally different worlds.  Oh, not to mention that I'm already married and all that jazz.

But it could have happened, right?

This week Buckingham Palace announced the engagement of Prince William to his long-time girlfriend, Kate Middleton.  I couldn't be more excited!  It may be weird, but  have this strange fascination with all things royal.  I think it comes from my mother and grandmother because they both do as well.  Perhaps because my Gram looks strangely exactly like Queen Elizabeth II?  Or because when doing genology, my mother traced one of our family lines back to a royal line 100s of years ago?  Whatever the reason, I love the royals!

And Wills gave her his mother's ring.  That is an amazing ring!!

 I remember watching Diana and Charles's wedding as a child and the beauty and pagentry of it is still stuck in my mind.  Diana was such a beautiful bride.  As will Kate be.  The carriage ride, the big poufy AMAZING dress, the flowers, the music.  Everything.

And of course, being second in line to the throne pretty much garentees a wedding just as big and elaborate and beautiful.  I can't wait to see it all.  I'm very happy for them both.  They seem quite content and happy with their decision. 

I do hope that their mariage is more successful than his parents and other relatives have been.  I really think that both Diana and Sarah really didn't know what they were getting into.  They were both so young and their courtships were so short.  And since Kate has been around for the long haul, hopefully she has an idea of what exactly she is getting into. 

I think they make a beautiful couple, yes?

I do wish them a very happy and healthy marriage, with wonderful years to follow!

And after all......there's another prince to keep in mind....who would forget Handsome, Hottie Prince Harry?

It's possible.......

*laugh* Oh gosh, I remember watching Diana's wedding too. Talk about a fairy tale wedding! That was the first thing I thought when I heard about the engagement. Yay! Another Royal Wedding! (Now I need to go and watch the Fred Astaire movie....great....)
