I’m absolutely fascinated by Kate Middleton. I ask myself what role she will take on as the future Queen of England.
Is there anyone out there who knows what that entails?
I think I read somewhere that the Queen’s wealth is the highest in the world. Is that right?
I’ve also heard she is the most powerful woman in the world. Do you think that is true?
I think she is just beautiful. Her hair looks like a model’s — her eyes are brilliant. I also love the way she speaks.
Brittain has every reason to be proud.
Like many of my readers, and probably most of the world with access to news, they watched the royal wedding.
I loved so many things about it. I loved the crazy hats. I think they are just fun.
Here are 30 things that perhaps you didn’t know about the lovely Mrs. Mountbatten-Windsor:
1. Her official title is Catherine, Her Royal Highness, Duchess of Cambridge.
2. She is the future Queen of England.
3. She was born Catherine Elizabeth Middleton on January 9th 1982 in Bradford, England.
4. In April of 2011, Prince William, born in 1982, the eldest son of the Princess Diana, married Kate, or Catherine Middleton, in a highest ever ranked in person, television and internet viewing audience, 24.5 million people.
I loved the pomp and circumstance. I loved the crowds waving the flags and the flowers. I loved the uniforms, the hats and just the general excitement and buzz that was in the air.
We all remember Kate and William’s balcony kiss. Does anyone remember the sweet little girl on the balcony holding her ears due to all of the noise? It was precious.
5. Her mom, Carole, was an airline hostess and her dad, Michael worked at the airport.
Her mom is absolutely beautiful too as well as the rest of their family. In fact, what strikes me about their family is how downright lovely they are to look at.
They seem so approachable. The Middleton’s have three children, Catherine, or Kate, Pippa and James.
