How wonderful! Prince William has announced his engagement. He will marry the lovely Kate Middleton at Westminster Abbey on April 29th, 2011.
I can only imagine that little shops all over England will be celebrating with displays like this. (I took this photo in Stow-on-the-Wold at the height of the World Cup!) I love visual enthusiasm.
I have been an admirer of Princess Diana since I was eleven-years-old and have a collection of commemorative objects from the Royal Wedding in 1981. I can't wait to add a small dish or glass that commemorates Prince William's engagement to my collection.
When I was a girl enjoying the excitement of a Princess' wedding (and the years following with the birth of her children), I never looked ahead and realized that I would be able to watch her children grow and marry too.
As one of the millions of people that loved Princess Diana, I am here to send my Best Wishes to the happy couple.
To Prince William and dear Kate, if you need anything just let me know. I am a friend of your mother's.
