I watched it.
On and off during the morning.
Looked at the hats.
Felt that 4 hours sitting in the Abbey in your best frock and crossing your legs, and then not having a great view, was obviously very very thrilling for the people there, but slightly bizarre. I found that I did get sucked in to watching more and more as time went by and even smiled and said 'aaah' twice......once when I saw her beautiful dress and then again at the kiss on the balcony.
Decided that it was a mite grumpy of me to be quite so bah humbug and I realised that I liked the event for one reason only.................it was lovely to see so many people being happy.
I don't understand why they were so happy. I cannot 'get' why so many people waved flags or dressed up or acted as if they knew the couple personally. I don't subscribe to the 'nations favourite family' nonsense. They are strangers to me and although I don't wish them harm I don't wish them anything at all really.
Seeing happiness everywhere was good though.
