I am not in any way a royalist, I'd like to clarify that to begin with. I come from a country that got rid of its royal family before I was even born and I am a huge fan of democracy no matter what shape or form it comes in, it's still the best (of a bad bunch perhaps, but the best nonetheless). Still, I loved the Royal Wedding. The extravagant hats, the Queen doubling as Big Bird, Harry in his black suit (!!), the Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding dress.
But most of all, I enjoyed walking through London. I didn't participate in the celebrations, I watched bits of it at home while trying to get my five characters to behave (their favourites were the Beckhams), but I went for a long walk across the city after the wedding was over.
And it was lovely! People on the streets, singing, dancing, draped in flags, dressed as archbishops, queens and princesses, drinking champagne, CELEBRATING!! When an occasion, any kind of occasion, brings a nation together, like the royal wedding did yesterday, it gets my vote (ironically).
And for the cynics, History consists of many things. The royal wedding, like it or not, is part of social history and by acknowledging that you don't cancel the importance of the problems in Libya. So put on a fake tiara or a sequined vest and like me, go get Royally lost in cheery London!!
On a different note, Can someone a bit more computer savvy than me (easy!) please help me? I have issues getting a couple of things the way I want them to be. Thank you :)
