It was so refreshing to me to read, a few moments ago, an article written by Martin Amis.
I admit I hadn't known who he was/is until a few minutes ago. I did enjoy and agree with his column in an online newspaper.
He says the Queen doesn't listen. I can BELIEVE that because she has always appeared to me to be an extremely selfish woman.
Poor Prince William and Kate will now be under the microscope for the rest of their lives. Not for them the pleasure of a day out with (hopefully) their children in the country-side or at the seaside.
Not for them the joys that we mere 'ordinary folk' enjoy or the miseries, which we usually choose to keep to ourselves.
They are more to be pitied than envied.
I, for one, will not be getting up early to watch the 'nuptuals' which I consider the equivalent of being given a 'life sentence' in prison....for just falling in love.
I will shed a tear, most likely, but it will be for the lives they have lost.
