An American Girl in Washington

Kate Middleton for the Win

After looking at the pictures of the royal wedding this morning, I have three things to say:

1.  Thank you, NY Times, for putting actual news on your front page.

2. Well done, Sarah Burton.  Seriously, that dress is amazing.  The lace sleeves, the perfect neckline, the unbelievable train.  A gorgeous, classic, elegant, stunning gown.  I was absolutely speechless.  Also, Pippa looked hot.  She’ll be married to a Duke by August.

3.  The pictures showed two very obvious things:  Kate looked very smug.  William looked very, very happy.

And let’s face it. That’s the way it should be.

The problem with the last royal wedding (and probably several hundred before that) is that the new princess had no idea what she was getting into and the prince really wanted to be married to someone else.  It was a match made in hell and we all know how that played out.

But not this one.  Kate not only knows what she’s getting into, she’s been working her ass off for it for her entire life.  After all, they’ve been calling her a princess-in-waiting since long before she met Wills and in an accent-conscious country like England, Kate’s accent has always been just a little bit posher than the actual prince’s. She wanted this, and she was willing to put her life on hold to get it.  Scratch that, she didn’t put her life on hold.  This is her life.  Some girls go to grad school.  She’s been at princess camp for 27 years.  At the same time, William is marrying a beautiful, perfectly princess-like girl with perfect hair who he seems to be absolutely mad about.  Good for him.  He seems to be the farthest thing from the cheating type and she would never do anything to risk the crown she worked so hard for.

He really, really loves her.

She really, really, really loves being famous.

This is a match made in heaven.  I think it could work.  I think it will work.

Kate Middleton.  #winning
