>Yes, I am just like most other women on this planet and I am fascinated by the latest royal wedding the United Kingdom is offering up. It really has nothing to do with being an American or being British. It’s a universal mindset. A part of me wants to live a life seemingly without worry and in theory a princess gets that life. The reality is that princesses have a whole different set of worries I’d rather not have, you know like being stalked by a small phalanx of photographers all the time, having all your emotional dirty laundry aired for everyone to see.
The dream is nice though…never having to clean your house again, being able to buy whatever you want, hiring someone to do your hair and make up every day, having someone to drive you everywhere you go. It’s funny that I don’t really think about the prince in this fantasy. Fantasizing about men is a whole different ball of wax. To me, the princess daydream is less about romance and more about freedom from mundane chores. I’m sure any arm chair psychologists have a diagnosis to go along with that. Maybe I think that way because I’m an adult.
Regardless, I am going to try and wake up to watch some of the coverage. I remember seeing Princess Diana’s wedding. My mom tells the story about how she watched it thinking, “She’s too young for him and is making a big mistake.”
