The newly-minted Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

Waving to the crowds

I did it -- woke up at 4 a.m. to watch the Royal Wedding. It was spectacular and worth every minute of lost sleep. It was a true fairy-tale experience, complete with a beautiful bride and her handsome prince and all the pageantry one could want. Imagine .... Catherine Middleton woke up this morning as a commoner and a few hours later, became royalty by marrying the love of her life, Prince William. I find it all so terribly romantic.

I loved Kate's gown, the brilliant scarlet of William's tunic, the music, even the trees in the Abbey. All in all, a truly joyous event -- with not one but two balcony kisses!

Here's to the happy newlyweds!

I'm so glad the Queen gave them Cambridge, the other possibilities didn't sound as classy. They are such a gorgeous couple and carried off the entire thing with great dignity. Can't wait to see them in Canada!
