On Friday 29th April 2011, the former Miss Middleton has officially becomes Her Royal Highness Princess William Arthur Philip Louis, Duchess of Cambridge, Countess of Strathearn, Baroness Carrickfergus; the title bestowed upon her by Queen Elizabeth II when she is legally married to Prince William, who is now fondly known as Duke of Cambridge. The wedding occasion has become somewhat an anticipating event due to the fact that Prince William’s mother, Princess/Lady Diana Spencer once was quoted as “Princess of People’s Heart who had a ‘fairytale wedding'” and now people would want to see the son from that union entering a new phase of life.
With the memorable aura of the late Princess Diana, Catherine Middleton now has been touted as the new “English Rose”; possibly replacing the shoes that Princess Diana has left. I myself was an English royalties aficionado ever since I learned about the English Royal families and their European royal cousins are all inflicted with Haemophilia and I even bought books about the English family history! So, yeah; I am not a new-be fan; been ages in the book!
The Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen’s wedding dress ala late Princess Grace Kelly.
On whole, it was a cultural-experience to witness the wedding event; even if it was merely through NTV7 at the idyllic Serendah, Hulu Selangor! A fascinating event with a lot of rituals and protocols to be mesmerized with; the processions, the music, the attires, the crowd and the finale custom – The Balcony Scene where the couple faced the crowd and shared their kiss in front of millions of people. Splendid! And Catherine embodies the regal elegance just like the late Princess Grace Kelly when she wore the beautiful Alexander McQueen‘s dress (created by Sarah Burton, McQueen’s creative director; McQueen killed himself last year). Breathtaking, I say. Happy newly wed to both Duke of Cambridge & Duchess of Cambridge!
The book about English royalties that I bought probably when I was in Year 6 or Form 1 (couldn’t remember). (,”)
It’s Workers Day this Sunday (1 May), so on Monday it’s Public Holiday. So, I took the opportunity to go back to Jitra, a plan I’ve been putting on halt for the least 2 weeks. Today, pushed off from idyllic Serendah, Hulu Selangor circa 7.40 A.M. and I took the old road to Tanjung Malim- just to save cost from highway toll (now I understand when people say that when you have cars, your expenses sky-rocketing in comparison to the time when you have none!); so off to Northern region; just me and my fuschia-color Myvi, Dagny!
There were quite a lot of vehicles streaming along the North-South PLUS highway but still it was a smooth flow. But just about to reach Bukit Tambun and Juru, the traffic has become somewhat congested and the line was so long! I was wondering what was happening at the upfront as the traffic was moving slowly; to my astonishment, there were 5 cars all wrecked up in an accident and smithereens of glasses scattered on the road *Shudder!*
But overall, Alhamdulillah it was a good journey and I’ve learned that having a good sleep or rest prior to the day before travelling alone is a must, or one who is driving will be in peril danger! Hehehe
