We were seven years old and knew nothing of the complexities of such a union.
Diana was nineteen and sadly almost as naive and uninformed as we.
Yesterday, we witnessed Diana’s son wed an equally beautiful woman, but one who profoundly understands and welcomes her new position.
Kate is not being “thrown to the wolves”. She is an example of a modern woman, educated and empowered while graceful under enormous pressure.
Diana’s naivety was not her fault or a lack of intelligence. She was young, sheltered and used to play a role in an outdated game. I am relieved that collectively we have moved forward and that Kate represents women today.
What do you think… Is Kate Middleton the perfect modern Princess?
