thirty truths: 29

I said I didn’t care, that it was just a wedding, a couple kids getting married, what’s the big deal? All that money down the pan. Who cares about The Dress? The whole thing’s a little too ‘too’ for my taste. I said I wouldn’t watch.

The truth? Ah well… didn’t they look happy?
Balcony kiss still to come.
And much to my own bewilderment, I’ll be there.

  1. So lovely. Hard to use the word ‘simple’, but despite the pomp, there was an elegance and grace that came from something more simple than pompous I thought. Something genuine about this pair. Refreshing. No small accomplishment in this family! Kate has shades of Diana, only better, more prepared for the insanity; I can’t see William throwing her to the wolves, or becoming jealous of her popularity, nor Kate allowing herself to be quite as manipulated as Diana was initially. This appears to be a team. Which is the part that intersts me most, this changing face of ‘royalty’ (all that snogging being an example; apparently Charles had to ask his mother for permission to kiss Diana; can you imagine?) Surely it’s a job that can be accomplished with a bit more heart than in past generations.

    Despite my aversion to the over-the-top marketing and news coverage for the past weeks/months, it was fun to be a small part of the ceremony and to see their lovely fresh energy. Maybe they’ll manage to set a kinder, brighter tone to things round the palace generally. And who knows what greater good might come of that; I’m a firm believer in the power of dominoes…

    And now for a cuppa. ;)
