Everyone loves a fairytale, especially one that ends with ‘they lived happily ever after…’ Hopefully Kate and William will do just that. They certainly make a lovely looking couple and seem very happy. We are all waiting for the famous kiss on the balcony at 1.25pm (no room for spontaneity at this wedding). Apparently it is ‘not done’ to kiss in the church as explained on one of the many royal wedding websites –

“There will be no kiss during the wedding ceremony,” explained the Very Reverend Dr. John Hall, the dean of Westminster and the man responsible for overseeing the spiritual life of Westminster Abbey. “We don’t do that in the Church of England. That’s sort of a Hollywood thing: ‘ You may now kiss the bride.’ It doesn’t happen here.”

‘No matter what your views are on the Monarchy you will struggle to escape the Royal Wedding mania as little Britain is certainly taking centre stage right now.

It is unbelievable to see the number of people camping on the streets just to get a glimpse of the royal procession. It is estimated that 2 billion viewers will be watching the wedding which is not hard to believe when one sees the number of TV crews set up outside Buckingham Palace – even the Philippines is being represented. We all loved Diana and, for those of us old enough, we remember clearly her wedding day when she walked so nervously down what must have seemed like a never-ending isle in her very large wedding gown. While all the festivities are going on – there is also a debate regarding the need for the Monarchy.

Right now I think who cares about details such as whether the Monarchy should exist – lets just enjoy the wonderful energy flowing all around the world as we watch Kate and William say ‘I do’.
