Although a lot of the readers on BellaOnline might not be from England, I myself am English and thought it would be appropriate to write an article on the Royal Wedding, between Prince William and Kate Middleton on Friday 29th April.
This caused England to have a bank holiday on this day, where many could watch the wedding and celebrate.
I decided to get some quotes in reaction to this Royal Wedding when it was first announced:
""As well as this being a great moment for national celebration, I think we also have to remember that this is two young people who love each other who have made this announcement, who are looking forward to their wedding, and we must give them plenty of space to think about the future and what they are about to do."
"I am thrilled to hear the fantastic news of Prince William and Kate Middleton's engagement. Miriam [his wife] and I would like to send our very best wishes to the happy couple ahead of their big day."
It shows how thrilled our country was with the news of this engagement.
And now some quotes about them as a couple.
They were just very much boyfriend and girlfriend. They seemed very normal, they were happy in each other's company. They could relax and again that's part of the thing about St Andrews.
"You can go walking about the place, they could go down to the beach, they could come for drinks here. They could just behave like a normal couple."
The admiration for this couple in England is what calls for such a huge day to celebrate. They are in admiration for each other too.
She’s got a naughty sense of humour, which kind of helps because I’ve got a dirty sense of humour
He did cook for me at university… always with a bit of anger if something went wrong
Friday 29th April was a day that will go down in history for England, many celebrating the day in a huge fashion, with their family around them.
