Anniversary for Kate and William
It hardly seems possible that a year has passed since I unashamendly had a lump in my throat, and a tear in my eye, as I watched the stunningly beautiful bride, Kate Middleton, dressed in that superbly simple wedding dress - showing off her lovely figure so well - was standing, waiting to make her entrance at the door of Westminster Abbey., on the day she married her prince, the culmination of a true love story between royalty and commoner that had gripped the nation.
Their love for each other, deep and genuine, showed in the emotion neither of them could disguise when looking at each other, and everyone who witnessed this event could see the love shining in their eyes - which only reinforced the most wonderful aspect of the newly appointed Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - their being such very normal people, in the eyes of the British public, because they lived together before the wedding, having been a couple for a decade.
In the 12 months since that memorable wedding day, every public appearance by them, be it together or seperately, only goes further in demonstrating just how like everyday people - with whom anyone could be seated at a restaurant table, enjoying coffee and chatting easily - they appear to be, giving this warm and welcome impression whenever they appear in public, and naturally getting enormous displays of affection from an adoring public in return
The couple met at University - St Andrews - learning to love each other through their ten-year courtship, and even though they had the odd rough patch, as most couples do, the obvious mutual love that the couple so obviously share makes everything about their very public face appealing, so it was no wonder that the of wedding day was so very special . That genuine pleasure and excitement, which made both their faces glow during those exchanging of vows, as well as that the double kiss, on the Buckingham Palace balcony, all served to delight the rapturous crowd of spectators, cheering the couple with genuine affection
William and Kate are undoubtedly now the new face of the UK monarchy - All who have met this approachable, amenable and emotional couple able to identify with them easily. There seems to be a genuine impression that, at long last, Britain has royals whose very approachability makes the dated notions of monarchy and privilege less of a barrier to the average man and woman, simply because William and Kate are anything but distant and remote, as members of the royal family were once perceived to be. Whilst the fortunes of the monarchy had been at a low ebb after the Princess Diana before this wedding took place, the situation now has been transformed, not only by the royal couple embodying everything magical about fairytale romance, but also by the fact that the queen celebrates her Diamond Jubilee this year.
As this most popular young couple have proved in spades over the past twelve months, connection with the people is not just possible but highly desirable, and as assume ever more royal duties, our future king and queen will undoubtedly cement their places in history, not just as the most accessible and popular royal couple of all time, but also as well respected statespersons in their own right. That wedding was beyond memorable, to be sure, and the feeling is that with the gorgeous Kate at his side, William will make an excellent king. All the adoring British public long for now is the patter of tiny royal feet, keeping royal tradition in our great nation very much alive. This new era of royalty to whom the public can honestly relate is a breath of wondrous fresh air, changing sociey in the UK forever, and thank heavens for it.
