There has been much anticipation about the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. It's been going on since November last year, when they were engaged. And for me it has been a much longer fascination. I've got to admit that, at this point, I most definitely am an anglophile. I've spent a lot of time in London and am extremely fond of the English culture. I guess it comes naturally that I have become particularly fond of the royal family. I read the UK news daily and have followed Will and Kate's relationship for many years.
So I guess I shouldn't be surprised that the evening television coverage of the wedding has now drawn me into a full on royal wedding fever!! I guess I'm going to stay up most of the night so that I can see all the pomp and circumstance....and most importantly the wedding dress!! I can't wait to see her dress, veil and how she wears her hair. After that I may calm down enough to get some z's before I need to get up for work in the morning.
As I flip back and forth from CNN to the ABC news coverage I can't help but wish I was there. Not so much to be in the crowd, but just to be in London. I love everything about London. To me it is the perfect city. The culture, history and traditions run deep. The neighborhoods are diverse, the food, nightlife and entertainment choices are abundant. I just have not found a place that I would enjoy living more. Hopefully some day I can again call London home.
Since I don't have a picture of the wedding dress just yet, I'm posting a picture of Westminster Abbey taken on my last trip there.
Happy Friday and enjoy all the wedding coverage!!
