Are you sure you are ready for this?
This is the first time I’ve been in this country for a big royal wedding. I was in New York when William and Kate married, and watching a royal wedding in the US is a whole experience in itself. They love a royal wedding over there almost as much as we do.
I guess my invitation to this royal wedding must have been lost by the Royal Mail. But that’s all right. I made my own invitation to my very own royal wedding.
The funny thing – when writing the book, which was before Harry and Meghan were even officially dating, I had my bride invite a lot of everyday people to fill the courtyard around the palace chapel to join in the fun. And of course, that’s exactly what Meghan did. Now I am curious to see if THE dress in any way resembles mine. Or the flowers. Or…
So – do you want to know my number one royal wedding smile…
A few nights ago, I was at a concert in Greenwich and fell in love.. With this…
It was in the window of such an interesting and petty shop full of lovely sparkly things. I really really wanted to go inside and try it on. But I just knew that if I did, money would be spent. So I left it there and will have to have my royal wedding day without it. But I have the photo as my royal wedding souvenir.
I always cry at weddings – even my own. Maybe especially my own. There is now only one more sleep to go. I will be sitting in front of the TV tomorrow, with a box of tissues handy. There may even be something of a celebratory nature. Here’s hoping the sun shines.
And the last royal wedding moment, comes from the bride and groom themselves, from the window of a lovely old pub just next to Windsor Castle.
Enjoy tomorrow. I will.
