The Royal Wedding DVD Review!

Image
~The Royal Wedding~
The wedding of Great Britain's Prince William and Catherine (Kate) Middleton dazzled the world in April 2011, and this BBC documentary, The Royal Wedding, is a must-have for all royal fans. Those who watched the long coverage on American TV will appreciate the care with which the BBC has edited the processionals to a very crisply moving hour-plus, covering all of the pomp and magic of the fairy-tale day. Even the most ardent anglophile, who's already gasped in admiration of the lovely Kate and her charming prince, will find The Royal Wedding the perfect remembrance of that day. It's all here~ from the sea of hats to the two kisses from the balcony of Buckingham Palace for the adoring crowds to see. The wedding ceremony itself is also quite lovely, with choirs who'd rehearsed for months, and a sermon of simplicity and depth for the solemn state occasion. 
I tried to stay up to watch the Royal Wedding live but I didn't make it.Of cours…
