The second in line to the throne, after his father Prince Charles, Prince William is to marry his sweetheart, Kate Middleton, next year in what is the biggest royal event since Prince Charles married Diana Spencer in 1981. Many of us still cherish the memory of that event. It was the fairy tale wedding of our lives, even if it did not end in happiness until death did them part. Prince William gave his mother’s engagement ring to Kate Middleton and I pray that they enjoy much greater happiness than Diana and Charles did together.
Diana Spencer was a precious person, a unique human being who was greatly loved by many. Part of her lives on in Prince William. I hope that one day, he will be on the throne and that he will make his late mother proud.
I wish Prince William and his fiance every happiness in the world and I look forward to their wedding next year.
