  1. Oh, my goodness! I was so enthused with the Platinum Jubilee events in the UK that this wonderful event went completely under my radar! And what a wonderful event it was! I am so chuffed that they were finally able to marry. In a way they remind me of Prince Bertil and Princess Lilian of Sweden. They, too, couldn’t marry for years. But, just like in the case of the Swedish couple, love is more powerful that anything. Here they are, finally officially united! I wish them all the best in the world. May they enjoy many, many years of wedded bliss!
