Are you Royal watcher? I can’t help it. I’ve always been fascinated by “royalty.” The the Grimaldi’s of Monaco. My mom likes to joke that she was pregnant both times at the same time as Jackie Kennedy and Princess Grace of Monaco so I feel I know them. Then there was the mysterious car crash that killed Princess Grace so there’s huge mystery there.
The family of Nicholas II of Russia has always captivated me with the whole Anastasia stuff, did she make it out alive and the young one who was hemophiliac. The deaths and secrecy always had me interested. I’ve read so many books about it that there are times I think it was in my lifetime.
Then you have the Royals of England. Who can’t love that all? I’m sure plenty don’t care about this stuff but I hold it in special interest. I love all the marriages and pageantry of it. I find it so regal. Kings and Queens and Prince’s and Princess’s. I’m not even sure I’ve ever met anyone who didn’t love Princess Diana. She did so much good for the world.
I’m also a huge follower and love to read about the Kennedy’s. I know it sounds odd that I would be interested in them but I am. The whole story of the family and how close they were and some of the skeletons in those closets have made for some really good afternoons of reading.
I’ve watched weddings and funerals. I “remember where I was” during special times. I watched Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s wedding in Canada one summer. It was on my mom’s birthday and it was such a special day up there. I was glad to be there.
So, here’s my question. Do you plan to keep April 29 open for the next royal wedding? Do you care? I know I’ll be ready for it. I can’t wait to see it. I’ll wallow in the glory of the pomp and circumstance of all of it. I will love every minute of it and will watch all I can on it.
Will you watch? Why do you love it or why do you not care? Who captivates you that you never met and know you never will?
