Today’s post couldn’t be about anything else, right?

I know there are people ‘who don’t care’, people who think the monarchy is outdated and needs to go, people who are cynical and simply grumpy… I just think that in the light of recent horrible events, in a world that is so full of hate and ugliness, it is wonderful to sit back and, for a day at least,  believe in fairy tales… in dressing up and wearing hats, in celebrating love, in beautiful white gowns and horse-drawn chariots.

There is nothing, nothing wrong with that.


First of all… check out the castle… Disney, eat your heart out.


and Prince Charming…


and the beautiful Chapel…


Meghan looked amazing.  Classy, sophisticated, feminine and the dress was exquisite, (designed by Clare Waight Keller, Artistic Director of Givenchy).  I loved how strong she looked when she walked down the aisle by herself.  You go girl.


Great touch, walking with Prince Charles too…




The Duke and Duchess of Sussex…


The sun shone, the sky was cloudless, the crowd immense…


How can you not smile at that?

My mum came over and my friend Mrs C and we toasted with Prosecco and had scones with cream and strawberry jam…


… and Mr M treated the lawn to a special cut…


I’ll leave you with a great quote by CS Carol:  ” … you and I, who still believe in fairy tales, have less reason to wish actual childhood back.  We have kept its pleasures and added some grown-up ones too…”

Have a magical weekend.

    I love your ‘take’ on this event and I think Mr M’s style deserves a mention too.

    I love the lawn! It was a beautiful day all round. Sadly no scones for me, but I did have a large gin in the evening.
