The Royal Wedding And Me
I just got a mini lesson on royal etiquette so I can be prepared for my attendance at the wedding of my old friends Will and Kate. Actually they are too young but I always considered his dad as an old friend. Okay not really. Truthfully as a very young child when I first heard there was a prince in England about my age I was convinced that someday I would be his princess. I think I was five. What did I know?
The mini lesson was on the evening news and aside from which piece of cutlery to use when and how, or curtsy the most important instructions were: don’t speak unless spoken to and don’t touch. Oh and don’t chew gum.
It seems Kate’s mom came under criticism when she was spotted chewing gum at William’s graduation. And First Lady Michelle Obama came under severe criticism when she met the Queen and in a friendly gesture put her arm around the Monarch’s shoulder.
Strange to say my invitation has not arrived which may mean that for some reason I was left off the list. It might be just as well as I am not sure I could abandon my gum chewing shoulder hugging ways!
Oh yes…I never did find my prince..just the odd court jester or two!
