Royal Congratulations!

Did you watch the 'Royal Wedding'?  I did. Well, I DVR'd it and then fast forwarded to the good stuff.  I'd like to extend my congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.  May you be happy and help each other in all of life's ups and downs.

Why do I make a mention of this in my blog? A few reasons.  First, this is an event that will make a lasting impression.  I'll be able to talk to people forty years from now and they'll remember where they were when the 'Royal Wedding' took place, if they woke up at 3AM to watch it, etc.

Also, I predict this wedding will start a whole new slew of YA princess tales.  Not fairytale princess tales, but the kind where the common girl falls for the young prince in disguise or maybe even the common boy falling for the young princess in disguise.  You know where I'm going right?  Already titles are popping up in this genre!  My guess?  We'll be seeing more!

What did you think of the royal festivities? Did you watch it live?  Did you DVR it and fast forward through the long bits?  Do you think it will cause a new group of YA princess titles to pop up on the shelves?

I thought the whole thing was like watching a fairy princess tale! Just amazing and wonderful. I may or may not have gotten a little teary. Ahem.
But no, I didn't watch it live. all DVR and fast forwarding through any part where they talked to the crowd. Blech.
And I was thinking the exact same thing about princess books coming out soon - lots of "commoner" girls meeting princes. And honestly, I can't wait for them! :)

Nice post.

Haha, I am craving a princess story now that you mention it....
