Not exactly hot off the press but there's to be a royal wedding early next year. For some reason, these grand occasions have always been a rather exciting excuse to huddle together and breathe in the auspiciousness. It's not terribly liberating but my mum, sisters and I have always loved a healthy serve of royal nuptials and William and Kate's will be no different. The last time we stayed up to watch a fairytale was in 2004 when Mary Donaldson became Princess Mary but it wasn't the first time...I remember listening to Lady Di nervously fumbling her vows on a cassette tape in the 80s, the dusty round speakers of Dad's small portable stereo were as close to the action as we could get. By the time Fergie was whisking Prince Andrew down the aisle we owned a TV so the wedding was ours for the taking in glorious technicolour. So next April we will likely all stay over at one of our homes as we fit in with the northern hemisphere and mum will make cucumber sandwiches to snack on while we fight sleep to drink it all in.
