Brief Encounters – The Princess Bride, For Real

Tonight my two local granddaughters (9&6) will be visiting and staying overnight with the very strong possibility they will get up early with the adults to watch the royal wedding. Simone, the oldest swears she is NEVER getting married. Giselle, who loves princess fairytales and all things glittery will get a chance to watch a real-life young lady become a real-life princess. I’m looking forward to watching and sharing all the pomp and circumstances with three family generations of females for a few hours of magic. I know that on face value, it may seem frivolous, but in a world that often appears to be heading towards hell at warp speed, a royal wedding is a welcome relief. After all, it’s not every day you can watch live and in high definition a beautiful princess and her handsome prince ride in a royal carriage from a country where tradition still matters. I’m predicting my own princess Giselle will be mesmerized…so will I.
