Because I'm a hopeless romantic. . .

Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall. . . 

I love a good royal wedding! And we haven't one since 2004, with Mary + Frederick in Denmark and Felipe + Letizia in Spain. Prince Charles' wedding to Camilla doesn't count. Neither does Prince Louis of Luxembourg's wedding. True, there was Peter Phillips' wedding, but that was a very low-key affair, too.

Well - getting back on topic - Princess Anne's daughter, Zara Phillips, is getting married! The date hasn't been announced, but Zara's boyfriend of six years, Mike Tindall, has confirmed that there will be a wedding - sometime! Both Zara and Mike are professional sportspeople (Zara equestrian, Mike rugby), so of course they both have very busy schedules - hopefully they will be able to find the time to get married sometime soon!

So that's two royal weddings to look forward to - Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden, and now Zara Phillips.

I'm sure Zara will be a beautiful bride, and I really, really, hope everything works out well for them! :-)

Sorry, I know this post has been a little bit random. . . but you know the feeling when you hear something so exciting, that you just want to share the news with somebody. . .

I know how you feel! I was excited last year when Peter married Autumn from Montreal and there was a lot of coverage in magazines over here. They seemed like a sweet couple. Nothing will ever compare to the excitement at getting up at 4 in the morning to watch live coverage of Charles and Di...

Well, who doesn't love a good royal wedding? =D

Just wondering, Elise: why do you say Prince Louis' wedding doesn't count? Thanks.

I never miss a royal wedding on TV if possible :)

Charleybrown - of course, Autumn Kelly is Canadian! I'd almost forgotton! :-D You're lucky - over here, there was barely any coverage at all. I was so disappointed. :-(

I recently watched all of Charles' and Diana's wedding on Youtube. It really is the most beautiful wedding I've ever seen - but it was heartbreaking, too, because I knew as I watched that it didn't end happily ever after.

Embrithiliel - well, Prince Louis and his girlfriend Tessy had a baby out of wedlock - she was 20, he was 19. They were married not long after the baby was born, but it was a pretty low-key event.

Barbara - I don't either! :-)

Fabulous Post!!! :)
Aren't Royal Weddings wonderful?!
*happy sigh*

Love~ Miss Jen

Yes, I think they're wonderful! :-)

The royal wedding I am looking forward to is Prince William and Kate...if only he would pop the question

The Editrix said...

LOL, yes. . . the world has been waiting for that engagement announcement for several years. Who knows how much longer we'll have to wait? Maybe William and Kate won't ever marry, after all.

I hope not Elise, but it does seem in recent years, NOT rushing to get married seems to be the trend. Zara & Mike have been living together for the past few years. Peter & Autumn, Charles & Camilla, and Edward & Sophie, all shacked up before finally heading down the aisle. It's sad that the royals are not setting the best example. Wonder what poor Queen Victoria would think?

I just saw this post, and I wanted to say that I agree with everyone who has written above, I too like a good Royal wedding! And here in Sweden everyone (alright, maybe not everyone, but a lot of people at least) are excited about the upcoming weddings here! Especially Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel's, but also now Princess Madeleine and her Jonas. I don't know how big that wedding will be, but hopefully quite big at least. :-) Their engagement was just announced!
