Congratulations To Prince William & Kate Middleton

Yes, I am a Brooklyn Dame…but I still keep in touch with all things Brit. I’ve thought the American press coverage leading up to the wedding was excessive (was it necessary to send a reporter to speak to Ms. Middleton’s hair dresser?) but it is an exciting event to me all the same. This is the first time in 350 years that a royal has married a ‘commoner’…maybe, as the couple has shown by having more active involvements in the ceremonial preparations, some traditions are ripe for change.

Congratulations to the couple — and I wish joy for them as they begin their lives together!
