    I wish it was not on April 29, however, as that will be my 50th birthday. Kate gets married and I will be celebrating my 50th b-day hearing about it all day! Change it to April 26, my mom’s birthday – that would be much better,

    As a lifelong anglophile American, I am embarrassingly excited about this event although I would never try to get near London on that date. I remember waking up brutally early in the morning in 1981 to watch the wedding of Charles and Diana on tv here in the States. Kate and William seem like level headed people, worthy of admiration and deserving of their day. It won’t be as private as they may prefer and I wish them the best. Such better role models than the self-indulgent Hollywood stars who spend just as much on their lavish ceremonies only to divorce bitterly just a few years later.

    DD1′ s upset since it’s her birthday too.

    I’m surprised we haven’t had any other couples complaining how unfair it is since it’s thier special day too.

    I am feeling sorry for myself – the big 50 and I feel like Princess Mary when Catherine Howard taunted her for being much older and not married, nor will ever be. I must admit I usually don’t think about it much so I guess my midlife crisis is coming early. It’s funny that 500 years later a woman can still feel incomplete in out society without marriage – I guess I am not as liberated as I thought.

    Ridiculously excited about this wedding. I hope that some station decides to air it live here in the US as I was only a few months old when Charles and Diana tied the knot, so while I might have been awake for that wedding, I certainly had no clue what was going on.
