Congratulations to William & Kate

I just wanted to add my congratulations to Prince William and Kate Middleton. I wish them every happiness for the future and really hope they can enjoy a long and truly happy marriage.

I also hope that Kate Middleton (or the future Queen Catherine) doesn’t have to live in the shadow of the mother-in-law she never met, but is likely to be compared to by certain sections of the media. Today’s media coverage has naturally featured Princess Diana and her failed marriage – but there is already evidence that parts of the media want to draw comparisons with Diana. In fact direct questions regarding Diana today left the Prince’s fiancee looking a little uncomfortable – and looking to her future husband for support.

But away from the media frenzy let’s look on the (other) bright side. I’m sure David Cameron’s cabinet colleagues were banging the table in delight. There’s nothing like a Royal Wedding to boost the national spirit, and hopefully the national coffers, as the world joins the celebrations. The souvenirs are already hitting the shelves – and the web.

And arguably this will be the first Cyber Royal Wedding – imagine the huge surge in tweets and video posts on the big day. Perhaps we should already think of this as the Royal Twedding?!
