New Titles for Prince William and Happy Royal Wedding Day

Posted By on April 29, 2011

I’m writing this as I frantically put together a picnic for the Royal Wedding Garden Party we’re going to today – sorry, Sir Tim was very tempted to travel forward in time from 1536 to today to report on the wedding, but there are dastardly deeds going on at Court and he really needs to stay there.

Anyway, breaking news from the Royal family is that to mark the occasion of their wedding the Queen has made Prince William the Duke of Cambridge and his wife, Catherine or Kate, will become known as Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Cambridge after the wedding. The Queen has also given the Prince the titles of the Earl of Strathearn and Baron Carrickfergus.

If you didn’t see my post yesterday, here are some helpful links for you to get the very latest on the Royal Wedding:-

Our heartiest congratulations to Prince William the Duke of Cambridge and his future Duchess on their very special day!

P.S. Barb at The Tudor Tutor has just brought to my attention the fact that Greensleeves is being played at the Royal Wedding today, that famous Tudor piece of music which has been long associated with Henry VIII, although it is now believe to be from a later period. They are also having the hymns “Jerusalem”, “Guide me, O thou Great Redeemer” and “Love divine, all loves excelling” – Tim and I had “Love divine” at our wedding!

    I am at work and I only can watch photos of the wedding- videos are blocked in the company’s computers, but I can say that William and Catherine make a lovely couple. She was really elegant and classy and he looked regal in his uniform.
    I also liked Queen Elizabeth’s outfit, it reminded me that yellow was the colour of happiness and joy in Tudor times!
    I wish to the new couple all the best, health and happiness in their shared life!!

    I didn’t hear Greensleeves? What a fabulous wedding. Catherine looked beautiful and her dress was perfect. She will make a wonderful Princess. Carol Middleton’s outfit was lovely too. 🙂

    It actually stayed quiet in the way of crime so that our unit didn’t have to be called out, so I had a chance to see the entire ceremony…the lone Anglophile in a sea of those not all the familiar with royal weddings or English history — and the one cynic who was complaining about the American football draft being delayed for the wedding coverage. Thankfully we didn’t have to listen to him all morning. But it was a beautiful ceremony, and by the time they sang ‘Jerusalem’ I was getting teary-eyed. Yeah, I’m a hopeless romantic and I’m unashamed! God bless Prince William and his lovely new Princess, Catherine. I wish them all the best.

    I pray that they are as happy twenty years from now together as they are at the moment they kissed on the balcony. Marriage is hard, it’s a constant give and take, sometimes more give than take. It takes a lot to make it work, to make it last, to make both people happy. These two will be under even more pressure as a royal and celebrity couple. I pray to God, that these two will make it through. They are young now, young and in love. But I pray God that when age changes them, physically and otherwise, they are still able to look at one another in love and peace. That they may find comfort from the hectic, grey world in the tranquility of their love. May the private moments of intimacy, the private moments of tension and arguements, may they stay private. May the public learn from the tragedies of the past and leave this couple to grow in health, happiness, and joy. May they have healthy children, who know how much their parents love them. May they both live long and healthy lives so they can watch their children grow together, into adults.
    Heartfelt congratulations to the newly married couple.

    I could only watch the highlights too. Thank God for the BBC! I saw lots of clips at my lunch time on the online newspaper. Looked like a wonderful event.
