I would love to be there in the midst of all the hustle and bustle that most certainly is going on in Windsor and at the Palace. May 19 will soon be here.
Did you know there is a tradition concerning royal brides that dates back to the 1840s?
Queen Victoria planted a myrtle shrub in her garden after she married Prince Albert. Myrtle is referred to as the 'herb of love.'
The Queen most certainly loved her Prince Albert.
Ever since, royal brides have plucked a sprig of myrtle from that same shrub and placed in their own bouquets.
Gives great meaning to the old adage...something borrowed, something blue, something old, something new!
Something old, to be sure. What a thought to be part of a tradition where few brides have such an honor. We're talking Queen Victoria here!
I'm confident Meghan will follow tradition as well.
The excitement is getting palpable. What will the dress look like? The bouquet? The cake?
All I know for sure...I will be buying every magazine and book detailing the main event!
