The Royal Wedding 2011
The son of Lady Diana Princess of Wales, Prince William is about to marry Kate Middleton on the 29th of April 2011 at Westminster Abbey, London. Much speculation abounds about the size of the Royal Wedding. The Wedding Dress, The service, the pomp and pageantry will be watched by billions worldwide on television. Television stations set to cover the event have announced it will be the biggest live event ever covered on television. 70 Cameras will be used. NBC America alone are sending 300 personnel to cover the event.
All and sundry will be there to experience the joy the spectacle of what is a Royal Wedding. For a few moments we can indulge in the fantasy of the perfect wedding ceremony. World leaders from far and wide will attend this mammoth event. Already rehearsals have taken place and Prince William has indicated his nervousness as the big day seems to be approaching ever so quickly. Much ado has already been discussed in the print media on the preference that Kate and Will have in their wedding day. For instance the wedding is expected to be more modern than that of his parents Prince Charles and Lady Diana in 1981. For instance a car is expected to be used instead of a horse drawn carriage. This is of course only speculation maybe a horse drawn carriage will be used. I still remember the ever so long Wedding Dress used by Lady Diana. One can imagine that Kate Middleton will prefer something far shorter. The bride-to-be has asked Royal jewellers to fit two beads inside the £32million sapphire band,once worn by Princess Diana to stop it slipping.
Of course England itself will be looking for something to cheer itself up from a winter of discontent following massive budget cuts announced by the incumbent government to government services. One can only hope a happy day at the end of April will give light relief and provide some resilience in light of the cuts will have on the public services that so many rely on. Already the Prince and Kate Middleton have won friends here in Queensland by asking people wanting to give wedding presents in lieu to redirect those presents to one of a number of charities including Queensland's Royal Flying Doctor Service.
