It has been quite a while since the royal wedding the whole world was so passionate about and according to the international media the glamour of the young English couple has not faded whatsoever. Places like Royal Wedding Memorabilia are lovely reminders of the motifs that will remain forever the symbols of this spectacular event and seeing delicate portraits of the happy couple or lovely pieces of jewelry imitating the ones Kate wore as a bride brings a smile to anybody’s face.
Since William and Kate got married there has been another royal wedding – the one of the Monaco Prince Albert and Charlene. In spite of the huge media scandal around this event – an almost runaway bride, tears, betrayal and the rest of wrong reasons Albert married his supposed to be one and only – the Monaco wedding was extremely far from catching the eyes of the public as the English wedding did.
Why should we remember the wedding of the century? The answer is because we have every reason to. Our mothers shed romantic tears when Diana Princess of Hearts married Charles. They saw then a modern fairytale and why not a dream coming true.
The romantics of today watched breathless how Kate, the amazing bride in an amazingly simple dress, wearing her own makeup and shining in the most original way walked on the steps of the altar to marry the son of the woman their mothers admired – William.
Since then the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended royal functions, visited Canada, met the Hollywood stars and pretty much did their best to underline the image of a sweet young couple, cute enough to be loved and closer than ever to the hearts of the public.
Was their wedding truly the wedding of the century? We can say it was. Considering the popularity of it, the number of copies made after Kate’s dress, the incredible number of brides wanting the same engagement ring Kate received, and the huge number of fans waiting for the young royal couple every time they go out in the world; we can say that this wedding transformed William and Kate into worldwide celebrities.
