According to USA Today, it seems no one is giving out all that much information about the forthcoming nuptials of Prince William of Wales to (Catherine) Kate Middleton. We’ve not even had a picture of the lady’s dress! Critics have wondered if it is this lack of knowledge that is making the Brits go even more nuts to find out what’s going on, but it’s unlikely, given the major interest that took place all those moons ago when the Prince’s mother wed his father (although let’s please ask for more of a fairytale end to this marriage).
Brand on Royal Weddings
Emily Brand probably knew that this would be the case. She wrote a book – perfectly timed to hit stores on March 22 – entitled Royal Weddings and argued that “interest seems to be stronger, partly because this is the marriage of the future king and partly because it is [seen as] a genuine and remarkably ‘ordinary’ romance.” This could well be what is sparking interest; all those helpless romantics who saw how Kate did it; and that they could do it too; meet a boy, fall in love and get married, but it sure could help if he’s loaded with money and all those who know him call him Prince.
Shopaholic Sophie Kinsella Comments
According to author of the Shopaholic series Sophie Kinsella (she just added another one to the series, ‘Mini Shopaholic’), it’s only a matter of time until everyone is going crazy for the wedding. There is already talk about street parties and Kinsella’s theory is that there will probably me mass excitement but “quite last minute.”
Whether interest peaks or not, and whether we find out details of the dress before the big day or it remains a secret, let’s just make sure the energies we are putting out there are feel good ones and that our main priorities are for William and Kate – two young people in love – will live happily ever after. Because after all, that’s all anyone really wants at the end of the day; prince or pauper.
