I have very mixed feelings about the wedding. In one hand I do find it quite beautiful that a young couple, such as William and Kate, are joining their lives together in what seems with a very genuine and mutual love and compassion for one another. On the other hand, I do fear that the outside world is already too involved in this couples private, intimate life.
And of course, that makes me think of Princess Diana. I feel very sympathetic for the beautiful woman who lived a very short, dark, and overly public life. She married young into a loveless marriage and is quoted with having marriage troubles "since day 2", her every move was dissected, criticized and over-analyzed to the point of losing all of her privacy and whose days with her 2 beloved children were tragically cut short by none other than the media.
Even though at times her life seemed bleak and straining, she never once let it get in the way of her heart. Princess Diana was loving, compassionate, unselfish, caring, down-to-earth and warm. And she did it all with pure class, grace, and charm.
So today's post is dedicated to her on what I imagine would have been one of the happiest days of her life; the marriage of her eldest son. Princess Diana would have loved William's and Kate's wedding.
Best of luck to the newlywed Royal couple.
