We are only one day away from what may be the wedding of a lifetime! We have been watching numerous shows about the upcoming wedding as well as past royal weddings. We have been reading a ton of articles. It’s evading thousands of lives and we all love it! Thousands will be on planes heading to try and catch a glimpse of Kate Middleton in her gown! While millions will be glued to the tv doing the same! The internet has allowed us to glimpse further into the lives of the royal family more than ever before, you can even watch the wedding online! I have heard a lot lately, what’s the big deal, and that’s girl stuff… History is a big deal in our household and this is a historical event!
The marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton is monumental for several reasons..One being that it is said that Kate will be Queen! Another is Kate is not from an aristocratic family! She will not however be the first commoner to marry a future king. Notably Anne Hyde first wife of King James II, Elizabeth Woodville who married King Edward IV in 1464, and Anne Boleyn who was Henry VIII’s second wife were all commoners with no direct connections to nobility. This is the first royal union of it’s kind, due mainly to the accessibility technology has provided for the first time ever. Many of us have watch Prince William grow up through the eyes of the Media, many adored his mother Princess Diana..for some technology has allowed them to feel like family.
The photography of the event has also been big news, we have heard several different reports on just who will be the photographer. The latest report from officialroyalwedding2011 is that “Prince William of Wales and Miss Catherine Middleton have selected Hugo Burnand to be their official photographer at their wedding on the 29th April. Mr Burnand will be take the official photographs at Buckingham Palace following the wedding at Westminster Abbey.”
We will be watching every breath taking moment of the wedding, we are curious to know how many of you will be watching, how many will be there in the crowds, camera in hand? Comments are welcome!
