Like millions of people, I got royal wedding fever so bad about 3 days before Prince Harry and Megan Markel wed. The glitz and glamour and all the pomp is just too much for me to resist. After the wedding was over I was desperate for something to read that would be similar to the real life fairy tale. It sounded like the book I had been looking for….. I rushed to my library to pick up a copy and immediately busted into it when I got home.
Before he's out of sight, Cilla-across-the-hall pops out, and shortly thereafter Bex realizes English Chap was really English Crown Prince. It is fun.
It is sweet. He was downloading six boxes of wine and a frozen burrito.
What does it mean? And then.
And not the rip-the-bandaid-off-quickly kind of pain either. No, this is the slow, agonizing, see-it-coming-but-helpless-to-stop-it kind of pain. It's also about pages longer than it needs to be 75 pages of unnecessary PAIN.
Also, also, and somewhat unsurprisingly based on the cover it strangely mirrors the real royals of England. As for the rest of them.
I don't know how much of this art is imitating life, but there's enough similarity to make the reading uncomfortably voyeuristic. Or maybe that's just my American bafflement at the British and a lot of Western Europe besides fascination with blue bloods, and the legitimacy that fascination bestows.
I do not get it. At all. The idea that people are greater or lesser depending on what their ancestors where doing hundreds of years ago. And while discovering Will and Kate's latest sartorial preferences involves nothing more a simple Google search, guessing at whether the couple is truly happy with their roles, and their romance, is another story.
That story -- that of the royal couples' personal lives -- has been explored almost to exhaustion by fan fiction writers. But Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan, the bloggers behind the snarky celeb fashion site Go Fug Yourself , set out to pen a more elaborate and relatable version. The story opens on Bex and Nick's wedding night, but devotes little attention to her billowing gown, focusing instead on their rocky relationship, which bears little resemblance to the way it's discussed in books and newspapers.
And while the authors aren't necessarily the most objective observers of royal culture -- they unapologetically praise Kate's "impressive" public persona on their blog -- they succeed in making some of the most-watched celebrities feel like complex individuals.
We were really happy that she got, hopefully, the happy ending that she wanted.
What a difficult life this must be -- the things you have to give up, the relationships in your life that must change, possibly catastrophically. Cocks: Right. The more modern version is to peel back a layer or two or three or four and expose the underbelly of something.
Well, you know, it is still "Cinderella. How do you feel about that?
