Whilst waiting to go in and see my dentist yesterday, I was reading an article on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and was just thinking how wonderful life is with the right support. It’s lovely to see how they’re putting their own mark on their lives together and how they want to live.
For those of us who haven’t had these kind of opportunities, life goes on with what we have to deal with, but I’m pleased for the Duke and Duchess of York that they’re getting to do things their way, with their families behind them.
From the beginning of their marriage, including the royal birth photographs, they have chosen not to follow protocol and have clearly got the support of their families behind them.
It’s a reflection of their more contemporary attitude to the role of the Royal Family in society and their education, but it does show me how support adds to that and can make all the difference in the world and that makes me slightly envious.
