Today, She Married a Prince

Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge far exceeded the expectations of most.

She chose a dress, reminiscent of Grace Kelly and presented herself with complete class and elegance. I had feared she would appear in a high fashion, modern gown. I was beyond pleased to see her present herself as a princess, evoking every girl's vision of a fairytale. 

The ceremony somehow seemed intimate and focused on family unity. I thought the most charming moment was when Prince Harry turned to see Catherine walk down the aisle while his brother faced forward. Then he whispered to Prince William, perhaps telling him how extremely beautiful she looked.

I loved every moment of the Royal Wedding, but I am unsure of what to say about Princess Beatrice's hat.

    It was a wonderful event...and Princess B's hat must have been bought in the was awful!
