Introduction

God Save the Queen! Times are tough in our world. The economy is down, millions are out of work, and rising gasoline prices have everyone's "knickers in a bunch." But, even in the toughest of times, we all want to look to an ideal happily ever after. We all want to see that for some people, it does work out and maybe that means it will work out for us too. Excitement is in the air because come Friday, April 29, Prince William Arthur Philip Louis of Wales, second in line to the British throne, and his fiance, Catherine Elizabeth Middleton, will be married in Westminster Abbey with all the royal pomp and circumstance. Some may think it's stupid and irrelevant to our society and culture but many Americans are swept up in Royal Fever. ...read more.

"Diana would be thinking how proud she is of her son and how well he turned out, even with all the pressure," she said of Prince William's mother, who was killed in a car crash in Paris in 1997. "Unlike her, I think he's marrying for love. They're both marrying for love." Americans also gathered in private homes as royal watchers hosted their own get-togethers with scones and cucumber sandwiches. Parties will be going on throughout the day - from early-morning breakfasts to afternoon teas and evening dinners - at American restaurants and bars. A tavern in Washington D.C. will be selling slices of cake similar to those the royals will be eating: chocolate biscuit cake - Prince William's favorite - and a traditional royal wedding cake made with fruitcake. Customers who bring a teapot will receive a free appetizer or dessert. ...read more.

Conclusion

No matter what is going on in the world, the Royal Family's appeal remains shockingly resilient. The current popularity of the Royal Family can be attributed in part to recent films like this year's Oscar Award winning movie, "The King's Speech," a masterpiece about the Queen's father, George VI, in the days leading up to WWII and the extremely popular BBC series The Tudors. Another is that the wedding is happening a year before the country celebrates the diamond jubilee of Elizabeth's sixty-year reign, a period exceeded only by Queen Victoria. Elizabeth, who was 85 on April 21, was there when Britain, led by Churchill, stood alone in the island's "finest hour" against the Hitler Blitz. Another reason is that people are raised on fairytales which may help explain our fascination with royalty. With the history and the stories this family has behind them, it can't be denied that they are a real-life textbook fairytale and I truly wish Kate Middleton and Prince William a Happily Ever After. ...read more.
