Notes On A Royal Wedding

Is it the beginning of something or the end of something or just a jolly big knees up?
History seems to be being made, but God only knows what it all means.

I don't remember anything about the wedding of Wills and Kate- which makes me think it wasn't very memorable. This seems somehow much bigger, more popular- all that sort of thing. Is that because Harry and Meghan are more fun? Or because of the transatlantic element?

Wills and Kate are more important of course- or are they? What counts for more in 2018- herditary right or media celebrity?

What a guest list. Not only British royalty but Hollywood royalty too. And some real wild cards- Idris Elba, James Corden.

"There's Princess Anne in her dressing gown," says Ailz.

My mother calls from the TV room. "What's this I'm watching?" She repeats the question at intervals.

Windsor Castle is a Walter Scott era notion of what a medieval castle should look like. It doesn't convince.

The 1950 Rolls Royce Phantom bombs up the drive. "Here comes the frock," says Ailz.
