Kate and William getting married. It’s a good thing, right?

So, the worst kept secret since the identity of this year’s X Factor winner  is finally out in the open. Prince William will marry Kate Middleton next summer. And of course it’s very much a modern-day fairy-tale, the handsome prince marrying the commoner, which will probably delight little girls across the world. If it was a movie, our heroine would probably be played by Drew Barrymore. Or possibly Miley Cyrus.

This will actually be the fourth Royal Wedding I’ve watched and/or ignored on TV. Even though I find the whole concept of royalty/blue blood silly in the extreme, I’ve grown up enough (I think) to appreciate how good the royals are for tourism, and therefore the economy.

And like many of you, I feel affectionate and protective towards William and his brother, actually. We’ve watched him grow up, deal with more than his fair share of pressure and emerge from it all a very fine young man. Kate seems like a nice enough girl and hopefully she’ll be able to retain some sense of normality when she becomes a Windsor. I look forward to seeing how her fashion sense changes.

But am I the only one who feels a slight sense of foreboding? Because unlike Sophie Wessex, Kate is marrying a man who will one day be King. And you can’t help thinking of Princess Diana on a day like this.

    Foreboding? Heck, yes. Not made any better by the fact that he gave her Diana’s ring. Now there’s a temptation of fate if ever I saw one.

    I think it’s exciting, I think we need a people’s princess again. When we visited Thailand a few years ago, everyone idolised the king, and I wished we had such a strong love of our royal family. Maybe that can change. It would be nice to feel proud of what we have.

    I think it is great when people find a bond especially when their life has been less than straightforward – so I am pleased for them, they seem well suited and happy. I also understand the significance of this Royal wedding but I am already fed up of silly journalists and z listers analysing their relationship. Also please let them be a couple without having to continually refer to Diana, let Kate be Kate and not compare her with the gold tinted ‘Diana’ who was not perfect – she was normal right and had good and bad qualities.

    I am thrilled for them both! I Love Prince William and I am sure things will be different from how they were with Diana. I hope the Paparazzi have learnt lots from what happened to Di and I truly believe our Country will NOT be amused if they are stalked like Di was. I think there are a lot of us who feel rather protective towards the young princes.

    I am an expat living in England – I find your comments and post very interesting! I love weddings and the excitement around them. What huge responsibilities lay ahead of them. I don’t envy them in the least, but I wish them the best!
