I have been following the relationship of Prince William and Kate Middleton over the past few years. With any public couple, we have seen their ups and downs. But I was truly thrilled when they announced their engagement and looked forward to the wedding.
Once they announced a date I waited patiently for what I considered the most important part... the dress. All the magazines were making predictions. Everyone had their opinion of what it would look like. And of course, Princess Diana's dress was all over the place with everyone wondering how Kate's would compare. Judging by Kate's sense of style I had a pretty good vision in my head and couldn't wait to see her on that beautiful day.
The day of the wedding arrived and I fully intended to wake up early and not miss a moment. Well, that didn't happen. I woke up earlier than usual, but so did Little Miss. I caught moments here and there as we got on with our busy morning routine. But of course I missed all the big moments. I missed when Kate first emerged in her gown and I missed the vows. I was able to catch bits and pieces throughout the day on different channels, but it wasn't the same. I needed to see it in it's completeness without commentary of news reporters and cutting from scene to scene. So when I had the opportunity to review The Royal Wedding - William and Catherine on DVD I jumped at the chance.
Now I have the entire event on DVD and available for me to watch whenever the mood strikes. I can forever look back on this historical event and relive the love, the beauty, and the magic of a royal wedding. BBC released this commemorative DVD on May 24th, so you can get it today! I am excited to be able to share this story with my daughter when she is a little older and the DVD is the perfect way to do it.
The DVD is filled with those breath taking moments, such as their first kiss(es) on the balcony in front of thousands. The first time the public caught view of Kate's dress and the cheers that rose from the crowd. The parade of carriages carrying royals through the streets of London. It's truly a magical experience that should't be missed.
Of course Kate's dress did not disappoint and she looked stunning. From start to finish you felt like you were part of a fairy tale. To watch two families come together was beautiful. William and Kate stayed true to themselves and kept things simple and elegant. They put their own spin on the day while staying true to tradition.
This DVD also includes a bonus, "William and Kate: A Royal Engagement." This is an interesting view into the relationship of William and Kate as told in interviews by family and friends.
