And – We can’t understand why anyone really cares – Team
Regardless of what team you are on, the news today is ripe with the Royal Birth. And in case you are living under a rock, Duchess Kate and Prince William welcomed a boy.
So what exactly is our fascination with this couple? I have several thoughts on this.
Who doesn’t love a fairy tale? Common girl marries Prince and they live happily ever after. Add to this story that both the Prince and the Duchess seem so very down to earth – it doesn’t get any better than this.
But is that the reason?
I have another theory.
(For me anyway), I feel like am watching a friend of a friend of a friend (aka total stranger) continue his life despite loosing his mother at young age. I was six-years old when Prince William was born and vaguely remember the event. However, I clearly remember the death of his mother when I was just a college student. It was one of those events you remember where you were the moment you heard. In the years following Princess Diana’s death, I could not help but feel I was cheering for both Princes to “make it”. So seeing Prince William find what appears to be true love (I am a romantic at heart) and now start a family – well, I’d like to think his mother spirit is smiling.
This fairy tale is far from over, I am certain. There may be more babies, more weddings and more royal fodder from across the pond in the years to come. And yep, I will be following!
