On occasion, I forget that I live in this small island at the bottom of Australia.
Yesterday was one of those days. In my mind, I was on the other side of the world, back in the UK, joining in the royal wedding, along streets that I have walked, in a castle that I have visited.
A three-way message chat with my two daughters lasted several hours. Hobart to Sydney to London, our Aussie evening to a UK morning.
The conversation began…..
“What are you wearing?”
“Pj’s at the moment! Why?! Are we supposed to be dressing up?”
We then enjoyed watching the guests arrive, commenting on their outfits, those we were pleased to see, the Clooneys, the Beckhams, James Cordon, the co-stars from “Suits”, Priyanka Chopra in her stunning outfit, the Royals.
There were some fun comments made by my Aussie Husband and my Aussie son-in-law. I’m pleased that both my girls proudly displayed their British heritage for the day. Between us, we had English treats on our menu, from scones, strawberry jam and cream, to roast beef.
It was such a joyful occasion, a display of love, inclusion, a modern twist to such a traditional event.
Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Thank you for including us in such a perfect day.
