So the most epic and most awaited event of the decade happened today. Yep. TODAY.
it was the wedding of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge to Katherine Middleton Duchess of Cambridge.
and I’m pretty sure that it was a day that turned almost everyone in England to royalists.
- A person who supports the principle of monarchy or a particular monarchy
- A supporter of the king against Parliament in the English Civil War
- A supporter of the British during the American Revolution; a Tory
I watched all of it.. starting from 3pm to about 8.30pm and like the crazy fangirl I am, I snapped photos of the wedding from the TV.(Hope I don’t get arrested for copyright or anything >.<)
and it really got me thinking… when did our love affair for all things royal come about?:)
and then it hit me. It really all started from when we were young. When Disney implanted in all of us girls that we can all find our prince charming one day and live happily ever after:)
HAHAHAHA. actually now that I come to think of it, I’m still yearning for a prince to call my own just probably not in the literal sense although Prince Harry does look quite fetching…… 😛
there’s something about that British accent that really sets the insides of girls aflutter doesn’t it?:)
Kate Middleton who is so beautiful and charismatic and one of us commoners..
I guess it really gives people a reason to hope. doesn’t it?:)
i chanced upon this photo while browsing online and I really really love the comparisons..
I remember I was still really really young when Princess Diana died but I still remember it vividly and really how even people in Singapore were saddened by the news.. she really was a princess of hearts. She won people over and I hope that Kate Middleton manages to do that too!:)Lizzo was at Buckingham palace!!!:D jealous much! hahaha. apparently joelle was in London too but didnt go watch cause it was so crowded.
but I’m just thankful that I was able to watch it on Tv and just to be able to see her gorgeous dress and the whole ceremony. It was really an honour:)
Loved the horses too!!!!! like the whole carriage possession can be summed up in one word : AWESOME.
loved the sounds of the hoofs and the soldiers dressed up in their finery.. seriously, after royalty, you’ve gotta love a man in uniform. hahahahaha.
soo anyway, I’ll let the pictures do the talking:)
(all pictures are copyright of the BBC. i was just so excited so i had to snap photos>.< so please don’t sue me!)
kate’s sister is seriously SO PRETTY. good genes run in their family!
this is by far my fave picture..
i don’t know if those who were watching the live broadcast noticed but the Duchess of Cornwall noticed the youngest flowergirl looking upset cause she was a little on the tiny side and couldn’t look over the balcony.. so she stooped down to talk to the little girl and then because I guess it’s not proper for her to carry the girl or she couldn’t, she asked Prince Charles to carry her and he duly obliged! I caught that moment in between two camera frames, one when she stooped down to talk to the girl then looked at Prince Charles and after going back to Kate and Wills, it panned back to this moment when Prince Charles was carrying the little girl:)
It made me feel warm and fuzzy all over!:D
Here’s wishing them a very very very very happy marriage which will last a lifetime, with God watching over them:)
and here’s a girl who’s still awaiting her prince charming and her own fairytale wedding signing off…
ps: i was really really sad to miss taking photos of the kiss:/ i saw it but missed the moment to capture it!!!
