I am absolutely fascinated by beautiful 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 the queen is the most powerful woman in the world.
Is that true?
I think Kate is just beautiful. Her hair is just gorgeous, her eyes shine. She has those eyes that smile. I also love the way she speaks.
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 Kate and Williams’s wedding — the crazy hats, the pomp and circumstance, the flowers. I think it all is just fun and wonderful.
Britain has every reason to be proud.
