As a Canadian and a member of the British Commonwealth,
these words are pretty much etched into my memory...
Elizabeth the Second,
by the Grace of God, by the United Kingdom,
Canada and Her other Realms and Territories,
Head of the Commonwealth,
Defender of the Faith.
That's why I am so excited to be invited to
The Royal Wedding on
Friday, April 29, 2011!
(Okay, I'm not really invited, but Photoshop sure is fun isn't it!)
I can't tell you how happy I am for William and Kate
and there is just something about a Royal Wedding that
is just so exciting! I am a Monarchist, I admit it, although
I find that some people here in the U.S. just don't get it,
but if you grew up around it, you do! I know that many of you
are going to be watching the wedding though and you do
"get it" so to speak. Who wouldn't want to watch these
two lovely people tie the knot! I think that it's nice
to have some good news in the world for a change.
This would make such a lovely souvenir of the special day.
This is the new coach commissioned by Her Majesty and it should
be the coach that carries the Bride and Groom away from Westminster Abbey.
I will be up during the wee hours of Friday morning watching the
entire wedding. There will be a special breakfast and perhaps even
some champagne to celebrate the royal nuptials. So if any of my Utah
friends are up and about, give me a call or come on over to my house
and we'll watch it together. I'll leave the porch light on!
What are your plans for next Friday?
Am I the only insane one out there?
Somehow I doubt it!
