Did you get up in the wee hours of the morning on April 29th to watch the Royal Wedding? We don’t have cable or I would have definitely gotten up to watch. I remember watching Prince Andrew and Fergie’s wedding in the 80’s when I was a child and being totally captured by the beauty and elegance of the entire affair. I sat down with great anticipation to watch Prince William wed Kate Middleton and I knew that I was seeing history in the making.
I enjoyed seeing all the guests arrive Westminster Abbey mostly because I was curious about what they were wearing. Some had on some very intricate hats that I found fascinating to look at. My heart skipped a beat when the car rolled up with the bride and I couldn’t wait to see her dress in more detail. It was beautiful. I also learned that she was wearing the Queen’s tiara.
On the DVD, I watched the ceremony, the carriage procession and the balcony appearance at Buckingham Palace as is the tradition. The kiss from the happy couple drew cheers from the crowd and made both the bride and groom blush. It was very sweet! Princess Diana would be very proud of the fine young man her son has become and he has chosen well with his new bride, Kate.
Purchase The Royal Wedding on DVD today and own a little piece of history (and see the future King of England get married!).
Own it on DVD from BBC America.
