I am 100% English, although I was born in the USA. My parents & sister were all born in England (Chester/Cheshire, to be exact) and many family members still live there. The connection to England & Wales has always been a strong one for me. When England has something special going on, my family pays attention. So, tomorrow the plans of drinking tea and watching the Royal Wedding will be a must for all of the Greens, Wrights & Davies family members….
Watching any Royal Wedding is always great fun but to watch the late Princess Diana’s son marry, seems much more meaningful somehow. Is it because Prince William seems so like his mother or is it the hope of a new couple to admire and follow? I believe on the eve of William & Kate’s wedding it is a little bit of both.
Princess Diana would surely approve of her son’s selection in brides. Kate seems to truly love her son William and the down to earth Middleton Family must also be a welcome part of the selection. I also believe that it should be a happy occasion, however, it does bring back all the feelings of the tragedy of losing Princess Diana at the age of 36. It is natural to admire how well her sons have grown and matured. Even Prince Charles would have to agree that in Princess Diana’s short life, she made a major, wonderful, great impact on his children and he should thank his lucky stars she was the mother of his children.
Having watched BBC America daily, I have had a glimpse of the couple’s romance and do believe this is a match made in love. I am sure I will be joining the billions of people across the globe, waiting, anticipating the moment Kate steps out of the limousine. So as we raise our Staffordshire English Tea Cups or Portmeirion Cups in my family, we say-“Cheers” to Prince William & Prince Kate, “Here is to a long, healthy life of happiness, strength and love!” from all of your British subjects near and far!
