For all the people that are rolling their eyes and exhaling loudly about the Royal Wedding nausea of news … let me see if I can break this down for you.
It’s more than just a “wedding”. Yes, as wedding vendors we love to chat up the dress, flowers, etc. It’s what we do.
This wedding is huge for England and the world. Women, (Queens, Princesses, First Lady) often become “the face” of a country. We are comforting, beautiful and compassionate. The soon to be Princess Kate will do that for her country.
Princess Diana was the first to change how the Monarchy was perceived. She made it the Modern Monarchy, more approachable and definitely real. Remember she would take William and Harry to McDonalds to help them have as normal of a childhood as possible. Honestly, I think Diana was an “American” deep in her soul.
Prince William and Princess Kate will take this Modern Monarchy to even the next level. I expect to see them acting very differently with how they live and interact with the country. Which is a great thing. Everything moves forward … and I can’t wait to watch.
