I think in these hard financial times the country needs something to celebrate and enjoy and this wedding has come at the perfect time. It is nice to be happy about something when the news these days is normally full of gloom and doom - even for non-royalists! I am amazed by the degree of international interest in The Wedding, the Americans especially seem so into it. There were worldwide best wishes which included the Dalai Lama, and even out of this world best wishes from the International Space Station!
In the future William and Catherine will be King and Queen of the UK. There are signs that they will herald a new era of royality in this country. A royality that is less formal and more in touch with the people, and that can only be a good thing - and maybe I'll end up becoming a real royalist then!
