I was a toddler at the time of Queen Elizabeth's coronation in 1953 so, too young to remember it. What I clearly remember with great fondness are the black and white photographs of the wedding of Princess Margaret to Anthony Armstrong-Jones in 1960 and one particular one of the Queen looking tenderly at Prince Charles lying, I think, in his moses basket. I would have been browsing through those in my mother's magazines at the time probably Woman's Own or Woman's Weekly, I remember the latter had loads of knitting patterns. That definitely was the beginning of my lifelong fascination with all things Royal!
Now, back to more recent times and I suppose to where it all began for William with the marriage of his parents, Princess Diana, then of course, Lady Diana and Prince Charles. I sometimes wish that Charles could have married Camilla instead of Diana but then the boy Princes would never have been born. Everything happens for a reason, I guess.
All I hope for William and Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as they are now known for the time being is that they are above all blessed with health and happiness and later the joy of children, everything else will follow.
