Considering the fact that I live in (what I have always thought was) the world's OLDEST Monarchy, I am very interested in how all this "royal stuff" works; not in an obsessed, National Enquirer Magazine kind of way, but just an honest interest in the way the monarchy functions---especially when the Prince has chosen one of those "commoners" as his bride. I love hearing about what Princess Mary is doing around Denmark because to me, she is just a regular girl who fell in love with a not-so-regular guy and now lives a pretty interesting life.
So yesterday when all the hoopla was happening in London, I was not glued to my tv; well, mainly because I was working, but I did come home and watch the reruns (well, at least the first 17 rounds of them) of William and Kate's big day because again, it's the story of a regular gal who loves a not-so-regular guy and is forced to share the biggest day of her life with the entire world. I watched Kate handle her day much the same way I see Mary handling her life as the future queen of Denmark.... with grace and style....Not because they were raised as royalty, but because they are just 2 very classy ladies!
However, I have to ask one thing...
Because I remember when I was planning my wedding to Jess' dad....when I was NINETEEN (Yes, I know... what the heck was I doing getting married at 19?? That is fodder for ANOTHER blog!), but I remember doodling on paper my new name... Mrs Kelli XXXXX.... Mr. and Mrs. XXXX.... etc.. but Mary and Kate didn't get to do that because that is one answer to my "royal wonderings" that I have not yet figured out... WHAT THE HECK ARE THEIR LAST NAMES NOW??
Did they just doodle "Future Queen Kate" and "Future Queen Mary"?
And is the monogram on the bath towels that you KNOW they received at a wedding shower just "FQK" and "FQM"?
If anyone has the answer, please share!!
