Congratulations Millie and Chas!

Since the gorgeous queen mum passed on, I must admit I haven't been the biggest fan of the monarchy; but whenever a royal event happens I still can't help but be completely mesmerised by the pomp and ceremony of it all. Today was the date for the wedding of the year, that is, Charles and Camilla, who I do secretly like to think of as the Princess Consort (with its vague hint of impropriety).

And what a beautiful day it was. Perfect for all those flower-toting, flag-waving British children that seem to come out of the woodwork every time the royal family finds an occasion to take to the public streets. On the television, the sun was shining and the sky was blue. Not that we had any of that in the flat though; mistress was hungover from the previous night and had the curtains tightly drawn.

I must say Camilla looked lovely this morning, glowing with the faint blush of a new bride (though she will never match the beauty of the Queen, whose looks remain to this day as fresh as a newly minted coin). Even Charles had a semi-smile on his face for half a second when they came out of the civil ceremony. No doubt he was thinking about his brand new conjugal rights, and no longer having to sneak his girlfriend out of his bedroom before the rest of the household woke up.

I must say, I've never been a big fan of the royals, especially their hats, but Camilla and The Prince looked happy!
