Let me explain...

As I have said before here, the females in my family have a long history of royal romance reverence and it's starting to reach fever pitch.  OK it's not at all - I am starting to reach fever pitch.  The others, well they're indulging me I think.  Perhaps it's the promise of sumptuous viewing snacks (chips and mixed lollies will never do) but the men seem relatively happy to be dragged along for the ride.   Either that, or they're used to me and know it's just easier for everyone if they go along with it.  Don't fight it fellas.

The decorations have started arriving and my union jack bunting is clashing terribly with all the Easter decorations.  But I care not.  I love a good do.  If only more people were interested in this thousands-of-miles-away-event-that-has-nothing-to-do-with-us we could have a street party, which would be a very British way to celebrate.  As it turns out the northern and southern hemispheres are being quite cooperative and the London Saturday 11am ceremony is an 8pm Friday night in for the antipodeans.

Regent Street.

The Mall.

So there you have it, while I'm actually not a monarchist (despite all evidence to the contrary) I am most definitely a 'pomp-and-ceromonist' and it doesn't get much bigger than this.  I am looking forward to the countdown and for the next week First House on the Right will be paying particular attention to all things British.  So if you hate the idea and can't bear the nonsense, you best look away for the next 7 days...

  1. Oh my, I'll know where to look when I need a Will+Kate fix! A week to go... this is so exciting.

  2. LOL ... great post Nicole. I'm also really excited about the wedding ... can't wait actually.

    I remember Charles and Diana's wedding as if it was yesterday and even though it had been a school night I was allowed to stay up until it was all over ... Oh how grown up I felt!!!

    And now that I AM all grown up (more's the pity) I've told my gang that the big night will be a Pizza and pop-corn night (oh and Tim-Tams ... for me!!!) and I'm not moving from the lounge, AND I have total control of the remote ...... arrrgh the joy and the power of now being the grown up!!!!! ;):)

    But I am feeling for Kate though ... can't imagine how nervous she must be feeling. I just hope she doesn't loose anymore weight!
    Anyway enough of my rambling ... so roll on old chaps with the Wedding pomp and ceremony!! :)
