So I ended up getting totally immersed in Royal Wedding fun. Our trip to the park was lovely; the rain held off and along with a whole heap of other party goers, we waved our flags, cheered and clapped and even stood up for the national anthem. That was a first. All while eating cupcakes covered in Union Jacks and dressed in red, white and blue. I've gotta say, never felt so patriotic.
I thought Kate's Grace Kelly-esque dress was very beautiful, and how stunning did Pippa look too? Not forgetting the boys, Wills and Harry really did look like they'd stepped out of a Disney movie. That's how I explained the whole situation to our youngest nephew Coby, who was a bit confused about the whole thing. Tyler understood it more, but I still needed to point out which one was the Queen.
There were ice creams and picnic food, lots of smiles and plenty of fun. It was nice to witness a happy occasion on TV, complete with coy glances, whispered compliments and TWO kisses, rather than the dark times the world has had to deal with recently. So here's to the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. I hope they live happily ever after.
