TITLE: Have I Found My Prince?
By veronica cressey


The media simply BURST with the news of the engagement of Prince William and Kate Middleton a few days ago!

Newspapers used front page headlines in announcing their engagement! You could not avoid the news of their union.

Prince William chose to give his fiancee, his Mother's ring, saying, Diana will be a part of this celebration.

God bless him for considering his Mother on this special occasion!

Now, I wonder what is in store for Kate?

Only yesterday, I said to my husband;
'Kate's life has been changed forever. The press will disect her, challenge her, promote and demote her at every step of the way! I wondered how her parents feel by giving away their daughter to Prince William?'

According to the media , they are perfectly happy, as Kate has known William for ten years, and the parents of Kate have come to know and love him.

Again, according to the media, Kate & William broke up for a while, which meant every Magazine photographed William with another girl, making front page news here in Australia.

In Britain, the media has had a consensus about the cost of the Royal Wedding.
Some have said; 'Bring it on!"
Others have been more moderate, as they are aware many people are struggling financially to make ends meet.

I have one or two opinions on William giving Kate his Mother's ring;
Firstly, I was afraid that Kate would be feeling had she to accept an heirloom which was so very sad?
Secondly, could Kate live up to the position as Diana had, albeit, blighted by Prince Charles' infidelity?

I do not know how this Wedding, Union, will span out, all I DO know is that I wish this young couple every joy, love, peace and happiness that anyone would wish for a new bride and groom.

It is fitting to note that Kate was in a school play, {at a young age} whereby, she was asking a palmist about her future.
Kate asked; 'Will I meet a rich man, will we fall in love? Will he marry me?
To which the palmist replied; 'YES"
The play continues where you see a young man kneeling, proposing to Kate.
Kate replies, 'Yes, William, I will marry you".

Is this fate?

Whoa! You captured how the media goes into a feeding frenzy over what they consider news. Like you I pray for William and Kate's happiness, but I wouldn't like living in the fish bowl.

Interesting story about young Kate--I hadn't heard that one over on this side of the pond.

Avoid exclamation points in essay ssuch as this one; they're best used only in dialogue (and even then, very rarely).

I'm fascinated by this story, and will be following it with you.

Oh how this story captures our attention in America. Such sad memories of Lady Di as we watched her young sons at her funeral. I too pray that Kate's life with William will be much different. Thanks for your views. I enjoyed reading it.

Interesting commentary. You have a very readable style.

You're right the engagement has been in the news and all the tabloid shows. I hadn't heard the part about the play that is a cute interesting tidbit.
