Thanks to my British grandmother, I was raised with a great love for the Royal Family. It became a tradition for me to follow their lives and keep up to date with the goings-on in Buckingham Palace. In fact, from the age of 5 and up, I used to write a letter to Queen Elizabeth every year. It was my grandmother’s idea, one that I took great excitement in following. I remember she even bought me a special stationary set for the occasion – Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit. Gosh I was so proud….
Although I hadn’t expected to ever receive a response, I did! Twice! Well, her secretary wrote it for her, but still. To see the Royal Seal and receive a personalized response was something I was quite proud of ;).
So, needless to say, I will be watching the Royal Wedding on television tomorrow morning, bright and early – even though that means setting my alarm for 4 a.m. For those of you who wish to join me, I’ve put together a list of television stations covering the live event. Please note, all times listed are in EST.
