That’s the sound of me crying at the news this morning that Prince William and Kate Middleton are officially engaged. Well, not really but you get the point. After 8(ish) years together, we probably all knew this was coming but now that it’s official, they have finally put an end to my childhood dreams of one day being the princess. When we were about 8 or 9, some of my friends and I used to have these long debates over which of the princes we liked and which one we were going to marry. For some reason, everyone wanted William so i had to convince the others that it was best if they let me choose William. Never mind how realistic our dreams were. When you are that age, practicalities like living on a different continent are no barrier to your grand plans.
Anyway, congratulations to the couple! I can’t wait to see what the wedding is like. Let’s hope they have a better chance at a good life than Prince Charles and Diana did.
