The Wedding

Can't NOT blog it, really, can we? The Wedding! Whatever your views on the monarchy and/or its alternatives, Friday's marriage ceremony which joined two happy young people was a wonderful celebration of love. Lucky William to be welcomed into a normal everyday sort of family. Not so sure whether Catherine is lucky... I thought definitely not, until I had spent Sunday cooking, washing up and doing the housework and realized that whatever else she might have to do, she won't ever have to do that sort of thing!

Sarah and I watched it all on the BBC, via satellite, at her house here in Corfu in the company of lots of ladies of different ages. We enjoyed the various comments coming from all sides almost as much as the ceremony. Diana watched the CNN coverage and said it was nicely irreverent.
