  1. Absolutely a fairy tale coming true! And I love your blog!

    So Britain does believe in fairy tales after all…

    Tens of thousands of well-wishers flooded The Mall yesterday to celebrate the marriage of the perfect princess to the handsome prince.

    On a magical day which will linger long in the memory, about one million people lined the streets of London to catch a glimpse of Kate Middleton and William.

    Many gasped in delight while others openly wept as the couple swept past to deafening cheers and frantic flag-waving.

    But it was not until Kate was finally unveiled in all her glory as she arrived at Westminster Abbey that the excitement hit fever pitch.

    As she stepped out of a black 1978 Rolls-Royce Phantom VI car looking resplendent in an Alexander McQueen dress designed by Sarah Burton, the crowds went wild. The euphoria was summed up by Diana Wuddah, 48, from London, who said: “Wow, she’s the perfect princess. She’s the real thing and this could be our fairy-tale ending.”

    Excited crowds had earlier clapped and screamed “Wills, Wills, Wills” when the groom arrived wearing a red Irish Guards uniform.

    They were almost equally enthralled by celebrity guests, whooping in glee as David and Victoria Beckham walked through the Great North Door for the service.

  2. Since the day Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with his late mother’s sapphire engagement ring, comparisons to his parents’ massive 1981 wedding were bound to be inevitable.

    In some ways, the newlywed couple emulated Prince Charles and Princess Diana; for instance, by riding in the same carriage after exchanging vows and kissing on the same balcony. But in many ways, they made the ceremony their own. From asking for charitable donations instead of gifts to driving themselves in the ‘getaway car,’ the wedding was unmistakably William and Catherine.

    One highly visible way the new princess distinguished herself? With a much smaller train on her Alexander McQueen gown.

    Diana’s Elizabeth Emanuel confection boasted a 25-foot train that famously took up most of the space in her carriage – and required two bridesmaids to maneuver. Kate’s, on the other hand, was about one-third of the length at nearly nine feet, and moved easily with her as she proceeded down Westminster Abbey’s long center aisle. Though the two dresses varied greatly, there’s no doubt that they both were fit for a princess.

  3. Good day!

    I have the opportunity to witness the wedding with my children last Friday. It was the moment of pride and glorious. Glad you enjoyed the wedding as well. Cheers!

    Harimau : tahniah????

    Dorothy : Are you really?wow! Fascinating! 🙂

  5. As Britain goes back to work still buzzing with the excitement of the royal wedding, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be back at their rented farmhouse on the Welsh island of Anglesey trying to restore a semblance of normality to their lives.

    Following their announcement of a delayed honeymoon, the newly-weds will settle into married life in the intimacy of the home they have shared since last year, away from the glare of the media.
    Prince William is expected to return to his duties as an RAF Search and Rescue helicopter pilot as early as tomorrow, giving him a chance to let the royal wedding circus die down before taking his bride on a more relaxing break.
    Although the Duchess, as a member of the Royal family, now has a duty to carry out public engagements, St James’s Palace has made it clear that she will be eased into the role slowly.
    For now, her job will be restricted to that of a consort to her husband. A spokesman for St James’s Palace said: “The Duchess’s work within the Royal family initially will be to support her husband with his long-standing patronages and other official duties, and, like any member of the Royal family, to support The Queen at home and abroad.”
    The Prince is expected to spend another two years based at RAF Valley on Anglesey.

  6. it’s a great honour for us Britons to have this wedding watched by millions of people around the world. God saves The Queen.
