The mood of the nation has lifted with the delightful news that Prince William and Kate Middleton are set to marry, and at the same time, the dream of every little girl will become a reality for one young lady - soon Kate Middleton will become a real Princess! More than that, she will one day become our Queen, and queen to the other commonwealth countries that will recognise her as their sovereign head of state.
We all treat our little daughters like princesses, we often even refer to them as such, but no one expects their children to become a genuine Princess. All the more extraordinary for Kate's parents who, after leading normal lives and raising their children in an ordinary, down to earth manner, suddenly find themselves mixing in Royal circles. Their eldest daughter is about to become the third most important female in the Royal Family after the Queen and the Duchess of Cornwall!
Kate's children will of course enjoy a life of privilege never dreamed of by her parents of grandparents, but William's generation of modern royals have managed to remain as grounded as they probably can be in how ordinary people live their lives. Yes, William, Harry and all their cousins have enjoyed a rare upbringing in royal circles, but they have also managed to mix with a broad section of society and truly understand what it is for the ordinary family to live in the 21st century.
We join the nation in wishing William and Kate all the very best for their forthcoming wedding, and wish them a happy family in the future!
