These last 24 hours represent so much more than just a royal wedding for me. Growing up in a country that was freshly independent from the British colony, I was influence by an English way of life. We sang “God Save The Queen” at important events, our schooling, clothing, expressions, monetary and imperial system was fashioned after Britain. Coming to Canada did not change that even as I embraced my new home. Spending a month in England at a time when Prince Charles married Diana, my love for all things British grew! My young teenage heart was full of romance and fairytales. Now as I sit quietly watching the beginnings of what promises to be a spectacular event, I can’t help but reflect on my own marriage. During the past 24 hours, my husband who does not follow the royals but recognized how important it was to me did everything possible to ensure my enjoyment. Never once did he laugh or belittle my fascination. Instead he supported and indulged in guaranteeing a perfect day. He insisted on buying all the ingredients for my royal tea, warned our young adult children to mind, surprised me with a lovely serving rack and used his mudding and drywall skills to ice my lemon sponge cake. So while I watch Meghan marry her prince, I quietly appreciate my knight, my hero, my Prince Charming of 27 years! Love you Darren❤️!
