Watching the Royal Wedding Alone
I am house sitting and knew I would be home alone last night watching the Royal Wedding. But I was ok with that. I thought if I went out somewhere – even to nearby friends, I’d have to drive myself home late at night. It also meant that I would not be able to have a drink, and I thought champagne would be a good way to celebrate. And at home, I could retire for the night if I got sick of it all.
Being alone doesn’t bother me. I’m free then to do what I want.
Windsor Castle and Ceremony
Recently I was in London, and I had planned to visit Windsor, but the “Beast from the East” curtailed some of my sightseeing. Maybe one day I will get back there. I had to be satisfied with the wonderful images on television. I love the pomp and ceremony, and I confess, sometimes I get teary. And I did last night during the Royal Wedding. In fact, I had quite an emotional roller coaster.
Some of the ceremonial parts did make me cry. Even watching Meghan arrive – it was exciting and I felt for her. She certainly managed to cope with it all – at least that was my impression.
I loved the uniforms, the amazing chapel, the wonderful music – and I joined in with the hymns that were familiar to me. It made me laugh at the facial expressions, especially when during the “sermon”. I think the Poms were a bit surprised by the enthusiasm of the Reverend Bishop Michael Curry during is slightly long-winded speech. Elton John’s facial expression was awesome.
There’s no doubt that a lot of people would whinge about one thing or another, but overall I thought everyone did a wonderful job and from what I saw, I could not complain.
Loved Dress No 2
I have read comments that Meghan didn’t do much about makeup – she was just natural and naturally beautiful. I was not a fan of dress number one and would have liked her to have had a necklace on as I think it would have improved the look of the dress. Just loved dress number two, though.
So I drank my champagne – at least one and a half glasses and enjoyed the wedding and the tour around Windsor by the bride and groom and the military folk on horseback.
Then it was time for bed.
I was pleased I had seen so much of the Royal Wedding. I wish them both a very Happy and long Marriage.
