Under all the sickness, the one part that brought me great excitement and happiness was the engagement of Prince William to Kate Middleton. I was OBSESSED with Princess Diana and it all started with her engagement to Prince Charles. I feel like I’m ten years old all over again, especially when I’ve been seeing the commemorative magazines showing Diana almost thirty years ago. God how I ate up everything she did; how she wore her hair and what clothes she wore. Whatever my ten-year-old self could copy of hers, I did. I also still have (somewhere) commemorative plates, cups, and spoons of their wedding.
Now I feel the same obsession starting over again with Prince William and Kate. So weird that I’m almost 40 years old and just as giddy as I was when I was ten. Thankfully Mike has embraced my reaction to the engagement with support rather than mocking!
