Wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

Post  Elena on Thu Oct 27, 2011 9:15 pm

My thoughts:
http://teaattrianon.blogspot.com/2011/05/fair-bridal.html
On Friday morning, I found myself tweeting the royal wedding. As anyone who watched the wedding knows, it was like the most wonderful film ever made...except that it was real. I was uplifted by the beauty of the event and the sense of connection with the ages. I enjoyed being one of the many crazy Americans who rose before dawn to join millions around the world witness the marriage vows of two young people. There are few young people today who have escaped the stains of scandal, tragedy and worldliness. Seeing such an attractive and very prominent couple dare to accept the challenges of matrimony, in spite of everything that has gone before, is a sign of hope. I was glad to read the following words in The Catholic Herald:
http://www.catholicherald.co.uk/news/2011/04/30/royal-wedding-shows-britain-still-cares-about-marriage-says-archbishop/
Speaking in an interview with the Catholic Herald in Rome this afternoon, Archbishop Vincent Nichols went on to compare the beatification of Pope John Paul II, which takes place tomorrow morning, with the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge which he attended yesterday.

He said: “Tomorrow, in a way, is a celebration of the same love that William and Catherine promised to each other – yesterday in marriage, today in service of priest, bishop and Pope – but it’s the same well-spring of love that comes from God that we see on both days.”

Describing yesterday’s events in Westminster Abbey, Archbishop Nichols said that the crowd cheered at two points during the wedding ceremony. He said: “It was very remarkable when it happened. The first [instance] was when the two exchanged their promises. So when Catherine said ‘I will’ there was a great cheer. People recognised the solemnity of the promises that were being made. The second was when the Archbishop of Canterbury said ‘So in the sight of God and these people I now declare you man and wife’ and there was a great cheer.

“There is popular recognition that marriage is a fresh start. That this from now on was something different and it was a profound change in the life of both those young people. And everybody recognises it. I think that gives the lie to the idea that marriage is of little consequence in our society. It clearly is of great consequence in the eyes of people witnessing and taking part in that marriage yesterday.”

Congratulations and best wishes to Their Royal Highnesses, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge! I think that the new Princess William (not "Princess Catherine") was an exceptionally lovely bride. The gown was elegant, dignified and understated, recalling Grace Kelly's. It is rare to see such perfect poise and exquisite posture in anyone from the present generation.

Are the young Royal couple expecting?

Post  Elena on Thu Nov 17, 2011 5:45 pm

http://news.nationalpost.com/2011/11/17/kate-middleton-pregnant-with-first-child-in-touch-weekly-magazine-reports/
A U.S. magazine is claiming to have scooped all of Britain’s Fleet Street media with the news that Kate Middleton and Prince William are expecting their first child.

In Touch Weekly cites “royal sources” confirming the Duchess of Cambridge is six weeks pregnant and that the couple have already picked names for the child.

According to In Touch, William and Kate “want something traditional” with Edward, Philip and Michael the likely choices for a boy, or Alice or Rose for a girl.

An unnamed palace insider tells In Touch that Kate is now preparing three royal nurseries at a number of royal homes, including Kensington Palace.

The magazine quotes its source as saying of William: “He’s very much his mother’s son, and he also knows that his father, Prince Charles, would like a granddaughter.” Kate is said to agree.

The palace would not comment on the claims, saying only that: “We never confirm or deny these rumors” and that any news of a royal pregnancy would unlikely to be leaked to a U.S. magazine.

Well, it would be lovely to have a child born to the young royal couple. Likewise for the new princely couple in Monaco. sunny

It's so exciting to see the little one after such a long wait. I find it so strange to think that this tiny baby is going to be my King someday! (I'm Canadian). I can't wait to see what his name will be, although from what I hear odds favour George and James!

George Alexander Louis. A name fit for a king.
