Kitty and the Prince

(Kitty)  Sorry we haven't been good about keeping up with the blog. A lot going on and it's so much easier to post a single sentence on Facebook. BUT - I'm going to try harder to get a post up at least once a week. Honest!  :)

So today's post is about my favorite day last month - Prince William came to town and I got to see him! He seemed so sweet and kind in all the places the news caught him. I know it probably seems silly, but he reminded me so much of his mom. So gracious and such a great smile.

Anyway, I walked forever to get to a place where I might be able to see him. And it was sooo hot! The first place I tried to see him was in a crowd so large I could barely see him once or twice as he shook heads with people. But everyone was so excited to see him!

Then almost everyone went home when he went to his picnic lunch in the Botanic Gardens - except those of us who wanted to see him again. When he drove through the second time, I was about ten feet away!! Here is the picture I was able to take:

Then as I walked the forever distance back to catch a bus, I was looking out on the harbour and saw a speed boat type taxi go by. I remember thinking, how weird, it's not even half full and everyone on it is wearing business clothes except for a woman in red. Then I saw it on the news - that was the Prince, too!

That's probably the closest I'll ever get to royalty. And I felt a little bad about how much of my day I spent out when I could have been working. But I stayed up till who knows when to see his parents get married - I had to see him, too!  :)

And from a romance writer's viewpoint, there's nothing more romantic than a handsome, charming Prince!

You are the daughter of a king and that makes you royalty too! But I so know what you mean. Not the same, they get crowns and scepters and royal guards and ... it's other-worldly.

I felt the same way when I met Dolly Parton, she was a living breathing doll and I was so amazed at the genuine graciousness and lovely person that she really is.

She was one of my idols because my grandma and aunt loved her so, she understood the same kind of childhood they had in Tennessee and sang beautifully about how God moved her.
