Royal Wedding - Kate & William

My Views from Kate and William's Wedding

You are either a fan of the Royal wedding or you aren't. There is no gray area for this occasion. I thought it was amazing. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge truly know how to throw a wedding!

The celebration was beyond my expectations, I could only imagine how exciting it must have been for their nineteen hundred guests and one million onlookers.

The Perfect Prince

Kate looked absolutely stunning in her gown, like a true princess. The way she carried herself looked like she'd been practicing for this day since infancy.

William exhibited his shyness and resembled a perfect prince.

One million people were there for the festivities and I'm sure it's a day they'll never forget. The fascinators were fascinating and I do plan on wearing one to my daughters wedding in 2 weeks, just toned down a bit. Maybe.

The Royal Kiss

The Royal Kiss was cute, but come on we all wanted more! I blinked the first time and missed it, luckily they kissed again but I almost missed that one too. They both don't like being the center of attention which is understandable but in my opinion I think they should have rocked that kiss a bit more. Five hundred thousand people were in attendance for the kiss, not to mention the millions who were watching from around the world. The moment was absolutely adorable nonetheless.

Wedding party on balcony of Buckingham Palace....I can't tell a lie. I was really hoping someone would have "accidentally" bumped into Camilla and she would have "accidentally" took a tumble. Come on now I know I'm not the only one who thought that. In my opinion she shouldn't have been there.

The newly wedded couple surprised us all.....How about that drive-by with the bride and groom in the Aston Martin sports car! They were absolute rock stars!!! Royalty just doesn't do those type of things but they did and it was outstanding! I applauded them.

Together William and Kate will change how the monarchy views everyday life and make it more exciting for all. Who knows maybe one day the royal guards would be able to get down and boogie while on duty. Okay, that's kind of extreme but one never knows.

Wedding Vows

Princess Diana

The royal wedding to me means, "life goes on." I'm a bit of a royal family fanatic. Mostly, I have been a follower since Princess Diana. She was a woman of character and poise whom I admired very much. She would have treasured having Kate as her daughter-in-law, it's sad that will never happen.

I watched Diana's wedding from start to finish and I'm thankful I was able to watch her son as he married his princess. It was bittersweet that Diana wasn't there to witness the uniting of William and Kate but she was there in spirit. Her legacy lives on with her sons. She would have been one proud mama.

Thank you to the British folks for allowing us to be a part of their wonderful, memorable celebration. With all the sadness and tragedy going on in our society it was refreshing to escape from it all and rejoice with a happy event. I'm wishing Kate and William many years of wedded bliss. I hope they live happily ever after.

P.S. Good luck cleaning up the 140 tons of trash left behind! Cheerio!

Update: 12/3/12 Congratulations on your pregnancy! Wishing you a healthy and happy baby!

Honestly, all things considered, I don't get the fascination. It still wasn't as beautiful as my wedding. :)

I certainly watched the wedding, and I thought it was so beautiful. They both carried themselves with such grace and dignity. I loved it, (and I had the the same feelings about Camilla) ugh, oh well I guess her & Charles deserve each other. Great hub:) ge

There is something so mezmerizing about ROYAL events. I think it goes all the way back to Fairy Tales that were read to us as children. The gowns, the crowns, all the Pomp and circumstance.....beautiful horses & carriages. It's like watching a beautifl movie being made. Hey..that hot chick with Kate & William in the picture..isn't that "AlanaBabba,the Arabian Princess??!!"

I am a Brit living in Florida. I am not generally a fan of the royal family, but I must admit it was fun to watch the Will and Kate do from the USA. I took my American wife and stepdaughter around Westminster Abbey the last time we went to London, so it was fun seeing it again, done up for the wedding.

Like you, i am a big fan of late Princess Diana. I watched both these weddings- Diana's wedding on Youtube and William's wedding on tv (live). You went to William & kate's wedding? If Yes, then WOW! Nice and Sweet Hub. Interesting. Vote up.

Hi ishwaryaa...I requested but never received an invitation to the royal wedding so I just added myself to their photo:)

I agree with you on the kiss. Just once, I'd like to see a prince grab his bride, bend her over his arm and give her a real smackeroo! But, then, I guess they are acting princely with the short kiss on the lips. I wish Will and Kate all the happiness in the world and I'm glad you made it in the couple's photo!

I've spent a good deal of time on Skype with people from the UK, and I observed the staunch disapproval of any big Royal Wedding.

But the numbers don't lie - Royal Weddings in Britain resound through their old colonies like wildfire, and generate a ton of tourism money in the process. Good for Will and Kate, I say.

Sunshine625 4 years ago from Orlando, FL Author

Oh well the UK might disapprove, but I thought the wedding was wonderful. The anticipation up until the big day was exciting. I didn't wear a fascintator to my daughters wedding, she disapproved. Thank you Jason for stopping by to visit Will and Kate!!

It was very nice to read this article a year later, especially after watching some of yesterday's special TV events reviewing the wedding and chronicling the couple's first year as Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. It was a wonderful wedding, wasn't it?

I hope your daughter and son-in-law have equally lovely reflections on their first year together. :)

I watched and like you, I'm not a fan of all of the royals but Diana was just a great person. She seemed like a real genuine person who cared and it was so sad how she died. I think she would be very proud of William and Harry and I'm sure she would've loved Kate as well. Great hub!

Hi Alecia, I also think Diana would be very proud of her sons and Kate. She would have been an amazing MIL. Thanks for stopping by:)

Hi, Alexis, I just came on this hub. I watched the royal wedding too and it was very beautiful. Yes, Will's mother would have been so proud of the way he has turned out. And she would have loved Kate, a commoner like herself, yet so royal in bearing.

Your hub brought back memories of the wedding. Thanks for it. I am unashamedly a royalty fan.
