The Royal Treatment

I have a dilemma...

Words cannot express how excited I am for this wonderful celebration. If you are as excited as I am, you must be planning on where you will be on that late April morning. Will I be one of the chosen few to be in West Minster Abbey gazing upon the beautiful couple as they exchange their vows? Will I be in England, in my family’s living room, surrounded by the youngsters who will wish to grow up and be a real princess? If my invite to the wedding doesn’t arrive, perhaps I will be on a rooftop in NYC with my dearest friends, early in the morning with the British flag in one hand and my favorite English cocktail Pimms in the other, celebrating with glass after glass. Or maybe I will simply stay put in my apartment in Manhattan, with my husband, having a delicious British breakfast complete with our English China, and of course a few glasses of Pimms! 
Wherever I end up on April 29th, and I promise to let you know where that is, one thing I know for sure: I will be wearing waterproof mascara, as I laugh, cry, and rejoice in this historical celebration. 

As we all raise our glasses wishing this handsome, wonderful couple, that found each other and nurtured their love as friends, peace and happiness, we must remember it is up to us to let them live their lives in peace so that they can bring joy to the world. Joy, which we so badly need. 

I just know my invite to the Royal Wedding is lost in the mail. I check my mailbox everyday hoping to see that golden envelope with my name on it. I have already prepared my ensemble for that special day. My dilemma is: what hat should I wear?


  1. I'm confident your invite will turn up any day now. This wonderful ceremony would just not be the same without you. Cheers (with Pimms, of course) to a beautiful royal wedding! Best, Karla

  2. I love your writing Carole style and hats. You now make me think about where i will be when these two lovely beings tie the knot. We should all be so blessed to meet and marry our soul mates.

  4. Love the pic, love the fascinator and miss you! Can't wait to read the next post.

  6. Amazing post Carole. Always one step ahead of everyone else. Whatever hat you pick will be amazing.

    Looking like royalty yourself. I want to see what you end up picking to wear!
