Royally Romantic

Sigh. Well that was a beautiful departure from every day life, wasn't it? Nothing I could say would add to the magnificence and simplicity that was the royal wedding, but I can't help blogging about it anyway. It makes me proud to be part of the Commonwealth, to know that they are my Duke and Duchess too.

One of my favourite parts was when William and Catherine exchanged a look and a smile during the sermon. They didn't say anything, but you could tell they knew what each other was thinking. It spoke of such intimacy and joy.... and it was so cute. Apparently William said "I'm so proud you're my wife" as they stepped into the carriage, after Kate asked after his happiness. I can't even begin to imagine everything she was feeling.

Other moments that proved what a down-to-earth heir to throne William is include:
- How he had an unscheduled walkabout among the waiting crowds the night before
- How he showed up at the church much earlier than tradition dictates, so that he could greet everyone
- How he drove himself and Kate away from the palace after the official reception, in his father's Aston Martin.
- And of course, how he dropped not one but two kisses on his new princess' lips.

I believe they want to come to NZ later this year for the world cup. William and Kate, we can't wait to see you!
