The Royal Wedding

by Queen Chioma Nworgu

Prince Williams and Princess Catherine (Kate) Middleton, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, tied the knot at Westminster Abbey in London, Great Britain, on the 29th of April 2011. The ceremony was a remarkable, royal celebration with over 1,800 distinguished attendees, royal guests, government officials and A-list celebrities present; including Footballer David Beckham and Victoria Beckham, Elton John, Australia’s Prime Minister Julia Gillard, British Conservative Ex-Prime Minister John Major and Madonna’s ex Husband Guy Ritchie.

The newlyweds met at University of St Andrews in Scotland, they remained a besotted couple for several years with the exception of one break up. On the 16th of November 2010 Clarence House made an announcement that Prince Williams the son of Prince Wales and the late Princess Diana, had planned to marry his beautiful girlfriend Kate Middleton in early summer 2011. It was later announced that Prince Williams the grandson of Queen Elizabeth II had purposed to Kate during a romantic trip to Kenya in October 2010.

The build up to the royal wedding was dramatic and immense; many had labelled Kate Middleton as a Commoner who was marrying into Royalty, the dream of every girl is to be a princess, however ‘The Middletons’ had no idea that this dream would become a reality. The press and public had made several assumptions and comparisons that Royal wedding would be similar to that of Prince Williams and the late Prince Lady Diana Spencer. Despite all oppositions and blessings the couple were set and determined to wed. It was later announced that Prince Williams had given all British residents an extra holiday on the day of the Royal Wedding; meaning that all UK residents could comfortably enjoy watching the event and could make effective plans to celebrate the royal occasion. Thousands of Britons publicised that they would watch the royal wedding and celebrate the festive event by throwing street parties across the UK. In total approximately 2 billion watched the wedding, in several countries all across the globe. In Great Britain alone approximately 24.5 million watched the Royal Wedding live. This was only the beginning of the hype; as the British public also organised over 5,000 street parties across the UK and thousands uploaded videos onto YouTube wishing the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge a remarkable blessed wedding.

The wedding itself was an exquisite short ceremony which was full of Christian faith, hymns, songs of praise and biblical scriptures. Prince Williams and Princess Catherine gazed into each other’s eyes as they made their vows in front of thousands of guests and before millions of viewers on TV. All that was missing was the royal kiss which although happened later on the balcony that afternoon. Catherine Middleton stunned the crowds by wearing a beautiful dress by the designer McQueen. The dress was designed in the style of a traditional, long sleeved, beautiful, elegant design which captured the essence of her new stately title of ‘Princess Catherine’.

The newlyweds ended the ceremony with a short beautiful balcony kiss which captivated the viewers. Within days the newlyweds they jetted off to California in USA where they spent their honeymoon. Prince Williams and Princess Catherine have managed to win the hearts of people all across the world. As they step into a beautiful future together we look forward to the newlywed’s royal adventures, ‘Excellency’ and countless royal appearances.
