Let’s Start With The Dress

I echo all the pundits when I say I thought it was perfect – contemporary, elegant, sophisticated and Grace Kelly-ish. Well done, Kate. (Oh, sorry. I meant the Duchess of Cambridge.) If I were a young woman about to get married, I’d probably aim for a dress just like it.

Sister Pippa’s was pretty provocative though. Shouldn’t the bride be the only white dress wearer? And how about the dress’s slinkiness and plunging neckline? I don’t know, but I guess I expected something more…demure.

Moving right along, I loved seeing Kate and William say their “I do’s.” But I really loved their waves on the balcony of Buckingham Palace, the little girl holding her ears and grimacing, and, of course, the two kisses.

I’m a romantic. I hope this couple makes it, despite the challenges of being royal. I mean would you want to be stuck with Charles and Camilla for Thanksgiving dinner? I didn’t think so.
