The Princess Diaries

So, it’s over. I’m not talking about the wedding. I’m talking about our hopes and dreams shattered into a million little pieces. Every little girl/woman in their 30s has the dream to become a princess. Now I really like Meghan; she’s American, a feminist and can seriously rock a messy bun, but she’s now a royal and I am not. It’s ok, I’m moving on. One foot in front of the other. Take each day as it comes.

OR…

Start investigating other Prince Charmings that are still single and daydream about them instead. I mean whichever is the healthier option. For those of you thinking the latter, me too! Here are some potentials I have researched for all of us.

PRINCE CONSTANTINE-ALEXIOS OF GREECE
He was born in the states and is only technically a royal by name since Greece doesn’t have a royal family anymore. But Prince William is his godfather and he likes the beach, so it works for me.

PRINCE NIKOLAI OF DENMARK
He’s basically jailbait, but he has a cute smirk and will grow up one day. Just need to have a little patience.

SHEIKH HAMDAN BIN MOHAMMED BIN RASHID AL MAKTOUM, CROWN PRINCE OF DUBAI
That’s a mouthful, but he’s 35 and an animal lover, likes extreme sports and enjoys poetry. Sign me up.

PRINCE MATEEN OF BRUNEI 
He’s, well, athletic. That’s an important quality.

PRINCE SEBASTIEN OF LUXEMBOURG
He’s an officer and a gentleman! And sixth in line to the throne, which means all the fun with no real responsibilities to worry about 😉

 

Alright, I don’t know about you but I feel better! Now that we all know we still have a chance, let’s dry our eyes and talk about the royal wedding!!

Here are some of my favorite moments from the big day:

My best friends killing it.
That moment your crazy aunt arrives.
A listers colliding. “You’re the best, no you’re the best.”
This kid 🙂
Anyone else feeling the Sound of Music vibes?
This dude is 19 and performing at the Royal Wedding. I need to make better life choices.
Loved the James Bond wardrobe change.
Princess Charlotte is definitely the coolest member of the Royal Family. She’s ready to parTAY!

 

It was honestly such a beautful wedding filled with so much love, modern traditions and finally some diversity! And of course, let’s not forget Kate’s side eye 😉

 

#MyNewNormal
It’s been really sunny and semi-warm in Scotland the last few weeks. However, I know this will all come crashing down around me any minute now, which keeps me from truly enjoying it. It’s like a big joke Scotland plays on you. It gets you excited, you even think you can go outside without a coat and then BAM!! Mother Nature cackles and throws some hail your way.
