THE royal wedding

with 3 comments

after weeks of reckless anticipation, i feel a bit down now because the royal wedding is over..

funny months ago, when i first read about it, i thought now that is a good way to deflect from some of the more fundamental shit that has been going on globally such as the europe debt problem, rising inflation so on and so forth.. well guess what, we have since gone from problems to way too many problems.. there isn’t a single that we don’t read about the whole middle east unravelling into some sort of a civil war zone and then there was of course japan.. bad news after bad news..

wills and kate provided me with  a little sanctuary from all the sadness of the world…

while watching the royal wedding, i was so happy..

let me tell you know. it has a lot to do with wills. we saw his parents got married ( i was only 2 but we kinda witnessed the whole thing) and then when he was born, he was presented to us..

we watched wills grow up.. when princess di passed away, again he was presented to us. i remembered fervently and gushed over – oh my god, that is definitely a prince. wills was so so handsome..

of course, i felt so sad for him at the funeral when he had to walk behind his mother’s coffin and i thought to myself – the curse of being royal – you are never supposed to show too much emotion and to appear dignified and controlled even at your mother’s funeral, that is so strange to me.

on the day of wedding, it felt like we have gone full circle. we saw him at his saddest and then we see him at his happiest.

needless to say, wills has such a special place in all of our hearts..

i wish you all the happiness you deserve as a person and i hope wills you have married your best friend.. though i am not sure if royals have true friends.

while watching the wedding as well i couldn’t help but think about camelia parker bowles now known as the duchess of cornwall also known as last century’s worst villain.

when princess diana said – her marriage was a marriage with three people in it i always thought she was the third person because prince charles had known camelia way before her. life is what it is. i am glad that after years of making her the bad person, we have finally accepted that perhaps she was more suitable for prince charles. bless her that poor woman!! doesn’t help too i supposed when she is a lot of less attractive than princess diana!

in a way, it’s a good ending for everyone….

can we now have another royal wedding please please?
