Kate Middleton and Prince William Fever — Will You Be Watching the Royal Wedding?

I admit it.

I will be watching.

Prince-William-Kate-Middleton-Royal-WeddingProbably live. (I am often up working at 2am anyway, so turning on the Royal Wedding while I work isn’t that crazy for me.)

I just can’t help myself.

I remember sitting cross legged in the shag carpet in our family den, staring up at the TV and wishing, so hard it hurt, that I could be one of the flower girls holding Diana’s train.

I was seven years old. I could never imagine agony and deceit behind that day. To me, she was a princess — a real life storybook.

So, I just can’t resist watching now, thirty years later, as a much wiser woman walks down the aisle to meet Diana’s beloved son, Prince William.

To me, this royal wedding is fascinating, as Kate Middleton chooses Royal Life — a life that has included betrayal, divorce, and even beheading, for “lucky” royal brides.

But Kate Middleton seems like she will be able to take on the Royal Family and win. She appears to be strong, independent, and capable.

While no marriage, let alone the marriage between the future King and Queen of England, is without challenges and compromises, I am placing my bets on Kate!

What about YOU?

Will you be watching? Or does even the mere mention of the Royal Wedding irritate you?

    Coverage starts at 4 am where I am with the wedding taking place around 5:30. I’m taking a power nap and setting the alarm. I can’t wait! (Don’t tell my boss, but I took a personal day to watch.) That’s how much I want to see!

    Would love to, but coverage starts at 1:00 a.m. here for me. I hope they show it again later in the day, I would love to share this magical moment with my little one.

    I will be watching. I grew up reading all of my mom’s historical romance novels thinking how that is so far from reality. To see it actually happening in my lifetime…AMAZING!! Seriously…THIS IS THE STUFF DREAMS ARE MADE OF!!

  5. says

    Lucky me, coverage starts at 3pm for me. Like everybody else, I can’t wait to see the wedding dress. She’ll make a beautiful bride.

    I watched Princess Diana get married live, and dreamed of some day growing up and marrying a prince! I will choose to sleep and catch up in the morning. Thank God for the DVR!

    I am going to a brunch event and will be viewing the wedding from 11:00 pst until 1:30 pst with my friend Catherine Oxenberg – she is second cousin to Prince Charles and will give me the scoop! Keep an eye on Twitter (alexandra90210) and BeverlyHillsMom.com for live posts and tweets! Catherine’s blog post about how she’s related to the House of Windsor and how she almost married Prince Andrew: http://catherineoxenberg.wordpress.com/2011/04/26/my-almost-royal-wedding/

    Originally I wasn’t going to watch it and I was getting really sick of hearing about it 24/7. As the time approaches though I find myself more curious and can almost guarantee I will be looking for clips online of it.

    My daughter and I will watch it live and have a ‘Princess Party’ where we wear our best dresses, and have tea and scones. Goofy, but she is sooooo excited! I have to admit, I am a bit as well. :)

    My entire family is British so I can’t admit that I’m NOT watching but I just like my sleep too much. My mom actually dragged me out of bed in the middle of the night when I was a kid to meet Princess Diana in person. The only thing I even remember about it is that I got a Hello Kitty coloring book out of the deal.

    I was up at 2:45 am (I’m in Illinois) and I wouldn’t have missed this for the world! I feel just like you. I was 7 and watching Diana and Charles, the pregnancies, the death, and now this beautiful union of marriage between incredible peeps! I really missed Diana today, but she was totally there in spirit-you could just feel her. It’s a real life fairytale right before our eyes. With all of the doom and gloom in todays world it just feels right to feel something magical filled with hope and love. Oh ya, the two kisses were pretty fabulous to-HA!

    By the way Harry & Pippa are super super cute and did you see Kate’s brother James-totally a cutie, too! I would love to be at the reception that Pippa is throwing tonight (there will be disco balls there I heard) LOL!


  1. […] 5 Minutes for Moms posted a poll on whether you would watch the wedding tomorrow. Then in their Facebook status they posted:  Big wedding on Friday, Use your royal wedding guest name!! Start with either Lord or Lady. Your first name is one of your grandparents’ names.Your surname is the name of your first pet, double-barreled with the name of the street you grew up on. Post yours here. Then cut and paste it into your status. Now, I know. If I was Royalty or simply Kate Middleton was my longtime girlfriend and I was a bridesmaid in her wedding, my name would be…. Lady Dorothy Snirt of Rural Route One….or maybe not.  How about Lady Esther Beau of Belmont? Are you watching the Royal wedding tomorrow? And most importantly what IS your royal wedding guest name?
