The People’s Princess of Cambridge #RoyalBaby

Dear friends and other interesting creatures,

When I was a little girl, I was obsessed with Princess Diana. I was very upset that I had to go to school while the woman in my family gathered to watch the royal wedding and that my Mammie refused for me to cut my hair like a Princess!

My Mammie bought me heavy, hard cover picture books of the Princess in beautiful clothes (which I still have) that I would browse all the time. I never tired of seeing her. A Princess. Magic!

I had a framed picture of the Princess wearing a crown and a yellow dress. I looked at this picture every night before I went to sleep. She was my first Hello and my last Goodnight.

I Googled and found the picture. 🙂

I was 24 years old when she died.  I woke up in total disbelief watching Sky News and cried like I had known her all my life …. watching her funeral on TV, I was inconsolable.

My father died when I was 11. Seeing Prince William and Prince Harry walking behind her coffin was heartbreaking. Remember the card that read “Mommy”? It was terribly sad and I thought her boys were so brave.

Today Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to her second child, a baby girl… Princess Diana’s grand daughter. Such excitement! Such joy! It may be silly and boring to some,  but believing in a little bit of a fairytale can go a long way! I hope her names include Victoria and Diana….  🙂

Welcome to the world…. Your Royal Highness, Princess of Cambridge!

I wish you,  enough.
