The Royal Wedding

When Prince William and Kate get married later this week, we will be watching here at A Mothers Ramblings. I think that it is important that Top Ender and Baby Boy watch, as this is a piece of British history. We have a Royal Family and because of that I am very proud. I suppose you could call me a Royalist, but I figure that as we have this link to our countries history we should enjoy it. After all there aren't that many countries left with a Royal Family. Oh and we will be celebrating by display flags on our car too. Yes, we are one of *those* people.

I remember watching Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew get married in 1986 (it was a Wednesday not sure what month or date but it was a Wednesday), I watched it on a TV at my Gran's house and I remember thinking how important it was to know that I watched it. I watched the coverage of Prince Charles wedding to  Camilla in 2005 at my home with Daddy and a dozing Top Ender.

This time I think that technology is playing a much bigger roll in celebrating a Royal Wedding, with app's being created in celebration. One that we were sent a jpg version of (we weren't given the app) very much describes The Story Of Us that I wrote before Christmas, about how Daddy and I met and were married! Only we weren't real Royalty and our pictures weren't quite so cute, the stories were both written for children though!

Whatever you views on The Royal Family, I am sure that you will agree in wishing this young couple every success and happiness on their wedding day and every day in the future as a fairytale ending is what we are all after in life.
