Okay, I said I wouldn’t drink the Royal Wedding Kool Aid, but I SO DID!!!
It all breaks down to the fact that I want to see Princess Diana’s boys happy. (much like I want to see Jennifer Anniston happy!)And Kate Middleton is like right out Hollywood casting of what a Princess should be.
But you know what got me? It wasn’t the pomp and circumstance, it wasn’t the carriages and guards. It was how Prince Harry reportedly told the groom “Wait till you see her!” It was the way Prince William whispered to her at the altar “you look beautiful”. The way they giggled. The way he awkwardly took her bouquet to help her from the carriage. The way she said “Oh wow!” when she saw all the people as they stepped out on the balcony. The way they blushed as they decided on a second kiss just to please the cheering crowd.
So normal. So darling. In the midst of this whole giant international frenzy then managed to be just a bride and just a groom together.
Of course this made me think of how TOTT and I giggled as the string quartet kept playing FOREVER even after I had reached the altar. The way just as we were about to tear up at our vows my darling Godson Ben(WWJD’s gorgeous boy) started to blow raspberries and it cracked everyone up! How we shared whispers and small laughs at the altar….
How loved we felt to be surrounded by so many of our family and friends. Turns out a Royal Wedding has a lot in common with the weddings of us commoners.
Who’da thunk it?
And this made me want to stare at my own wedding pictures. Will I ever be that thin again? I know I’ll never be that botoxed! The nurse went a leeeetle overboard. I couldn’t move my eyebrows! This was a great distress to me, as I am an eyebrow actor.
And that made me want to see your photos! Toss one up on your blog right quick, or if you have awedding or anniversary post link that!
