A (Semi) Royal Wedding

A (Semi) Royal Wedding
Country Living

This weekend their royal highnesses, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, took part in their first wedding. Their Aunt Pippa, Kate Middleton's sister, got married. They were Pageboy and Bridesmaid. I think that is the British equivalent to flower girl and ring barrier.

Earlier in the week, Kate said she wasn’t sure how the kids were going to behave because they were still young, but the two were undeniably adorable.

George looks like he is a take-charge little guy leading the group of boys into the church. I love little George's facial expressions.

George handles the press like a pro even at his young age. It looks like Charlotte may need a little practice. They both have being adorable down pat.

Kate’s role in the wedding was to wrangle the kids and to help fluff the bride's dress before she entered the church. I think it was pretty amazing that she wanted to stand up for her only sister but declined to do so because she would take the spotlight from the bride. Kate wanted the day to be about her sister, not her.

There was a moment that little Charlotte needed some mommy encouragement to behave. It is nice to see that even the future Queen of England can get a "Mommy Face" when her kids start to act up. Thanks for keeping it real Kate.

At one point this little boy must have started to misbehave. If you have ever been in charge of children you have had this face at one point. It is great to see that even a Royal can get the "If you don't behave I will make your life miserable" look on their face.

The desire to not steal the spotlight isn't just a Kate thing. Prince Harry showed up to the wedding without his soon to be fiancé for the same reason. It isn't the royals being uppity, it is just the truth that they understand Kate and Harry's girlfriends would cause the media to go crazy. They had to have a security detail for the wedding because of their involvement at all.

The semi-royal wedding had guests who were dressed to impress and in the true British way, the hats worn were out of this world. Pippa may not be a royal herself, but the royal family was represented heavily.

The wedding was at Saint Marks Chapel, a beautiful old church, while the reception is an adult-only affair on the grounds of the Middleton estate.

Now that Charlotte and George have the practice, they will be prepared for Uncle Harry and Aunt Megan’s wedding in the future.

I know the world will be waiting to see the smallest royals decked out in beautiful clothes like they were for Aunt Pippa’s wedding.

I appreciate the royals trying to not upstage the bride, but when you have these two cuties in your wedding party it is hard.

Congratulations Pippa and James Mathews, we wish you many years of happiness and thank you for giving the world tons of new pictures of our favorite little royals.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

Rich Schultz/Getty Images

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
