Royal Wedding Highlights
Last night I was up at 12:30 AM to watch the Royal wedding unfold before my eyes. I should have woken up at 2:30 when the Royals started to arrive at Westminster but oh well I couldn't sleep. I couldn't stand the anticipation and watched as Prince William and Harry drove to the ceremony. The sound of the crowd was deafening.
Of course I was anticipating Catherine's dress most of all. It was stunning and she looked so serene and beautiful. So cool under all that pressure. I couldn't take my eyes off her. Prince William was a good husband and didn't turn around until she was next to him but Harry sneaked a peak and gave a look that said he thought his sister in law was a hottie. Pippa looked beautiful as well.
My three favorite parts were:
1) The moment when it is asked "who gives this woman...?" and Michael Middleton handed Kate's hand over to William.
2) Watching her drive, getting limited peaks at her dress until she finally got out of the car and looked so beautiful.
3) The TWO kisses on the balcony as husband and wife.
The next best parts were the hats at the wedding, the trees instead of flowers at Westminster Abby, and the mother of the bride (she looked stunning as well).
The worst part for me was Princess Beatrice's hat. Bad choice.
Everything was such a fairy tale! I'm so glad that I stayed up to watch. When Prince William finally saw Kate he said "You look beautiful," then "I love you." It was very romantic! It felt very intimate for a wedding witnessed by 2 billion people.
