The Royal Wedding

No one can deny that Americans have a love relationship with British Royal Family, which should not be the case considering the fact that we fought two wars to be rid of them. American children read countless stories containing a prince or princess, and these stories are among the most exciting things we read as a child. What would our life have been if we had not had a sword like Lancelot’s to defend our Guinevere? There were few girls who were not a princess at frequent intervals, complete with crown and a dazzling array of jewels. It should not surprise us when we read about the many millions who impatiently await the grand event later in the month. Most of us can identify the individual members of the royal family when we see them, while we don’t even know the members of our own government, or what, if anything, they do. The wedding of Catherine and William will be the most dazzling event in this century, full of pomp and circumstance, or maybe not so much if William and Harry were to have their say. Click on the title of this story to see one man’s version of the event. It probably won’t turn out this way, but one can only hope.

You're so right! Americans do love the romance of British royalty. Witness the love of Regency romance for instance. I confess I enjoy them myself and wrote one novel as a tribute to the genre.
