For the past week, all I’ve heard is how no one gives a crap about the Royal Wedding, “didn’t we fight a revolution to get away from this?” blah blah blah blah blah.
We get it people. You’re very edgy. Congratulations. But at FFBR we say:
I will admit coverage was a little bit overblown. Yes, there are other things worth covering (though see this post for our feelings on that subject). No, CBS News, the world was not “waiting for a new star” because if it was, we’d be famous by now.
But I stumbled over to my couch at 5:15, wrapped myself in a snuggie, and rolled my eyes at the dumb Today Show commentary because I was determined to see this thing. By which I mean, mostly, I was determined to see 1) if Harry was still hot (yep!) and 2) what Kate (excuse me, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge) was wearing.
Then, all of a sudden, I was super invested. Tears may have been shed when Kate stepped out of the car (I’m PMSing, okay?) and when vows were exchanged. I could not stop awing at how they genuinely seemed to be in love, and I was glad that it seemed, for now, that the marriage would be the opposite of Charles & Diana. Suffice it to say that by the end of the day, the Libra’s facebook status said this: “After updating [redacted] on all I learned about the Royal Wedding from the internet, I realized I had, without even realizing it, become obsessed with who I shall now call the Duchess of Cambridge.”
And why not? She’s intelligent, well-spoken, loyal to her family, and looks outstanding in Alexander McQueen. She gave thousands of little girls hope that one day, their prince will come.*
So here’s to you Catherine. For once, we salute someone famous for halfway decent reasons.
*I can’t wait for feminists to come after me for this statement!
