I am a pure Royalist so you can imagine that this weeks coming proceedings will be the highlight of the year for me and Belles (but not Mark, he is not interested at all!). We have planned an afternoon tea with bunting and flags with cake stands rammed with delicious bites as well. I don't apologise for such actions - I'm all for pomp and ceremony.
I cannot understand the minority of people who say we should get rid of them. But why should we? Their history formed the backbone of this country with great kings and queens leading battles and conquesting glory for CENTURIES. The modern man who poo-poo's their existence clearly hasn't grasped what they are about and can't possibly think they can overthrow hundreds of years worth of sovereign rule over a republic state - for starters nobody would wear a fancy crown and sparkly jewels! There would be no pride or tourism if Cameron headed all we stand for. Bluergh, shakes head at the thought. And as for the media claiming they are spongers? Huh, they are proper nay-sayers; filling column inches with "non articles" just to ruffle a few readers feathers. Gah, it makes me mad.
This will be the fourth royal wedding since I was born although I don't remember Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips. I adored Prince Charles and Lady Di's wedding (even if he was in love with someone else when he got married) and I enjoyed Prince Andrews and Sarah Fergusons wedding. I know all of theirs ended in divorce but I truly believe that Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding is true love. After all they have been together a LOOOOONG time and they seem so down to earth. I so want Ellie to be swayed by the romanticism of this day without the drawl of slobbering anarchists and political activists spoiling the party.
If you are after some souvenirs,
I can recommend this shop in Chepstow who has Emma Bridgwater mugs marking the event - just call them to see if they have any left
And for fun, check out these daft tacky-fest oddballs. So even if people are not a royalist, someone, somewhere is laughing all the way to the bank!
