It's Been a Year
I admit it. I watched several hours of wedding festivities last year. They called it the wedding of the century and although I think that's a little premature, I must admit, I was starry-eyed.
First of all, I've liked William for a long time. He handles himself with dignity and in spite of the paparazzi nipping at his heels, he's managed to stay pretty free of controversy. Then he picked Kate. A commoner. A stunning commoner, but still a commoner. That makes me think he's pretty level-headed.
Then there's Kate. During their courtship, when he had a bout of cold feet, she didn't wallow or cling, even though there was a prince (and probably future king) at stake. She moved on. Lucky for him, he got smart before someone else won her heart.
And then there's her dress--elegant, classy, tasteful, modest, flattering. She looked breathtaking. She looked anything but common.
I hope they have more happiness and fidelity than many royals before them have experienced. I hope they're always as happy as they looked that day.
And I can't wait to see what their children look like.
