I checked the top news sites and Twitter like I would be checking for text messages or emails from my own family.
Here's the thing.
I was a little young to understand what went on with Diana at the time, but as I have learned about her and the Royal Family I have become intrigued. Something about Diana, William and Harry feels very tragic to me. Clearly, the death of there mother and an icon was tragic. As the boys have grown and shown the same compassion that their mother did...carried her legacy...it warms my heart.
I don't feel like they are stuffy royals. They are two boys who lost their mother and are doing their best to do right by her memory and have begun to influence change within the Monarchy.
Maybe I am reading too much into all of it, but it's what I see when I look at them.
Kate has been a beautiful addition to the family. She and Will seem to genuinely be in love and together they have made sure that Diana's memory is kept alive. I can't help but be drawn to them.
Now that they have their little boy, Prince George, in their arms and the similarities between the birth of William and George are being made, the first glimpses of Will and Kate as parents are tender and real. You can also see that, in this time so focused on family, that they are thinking of Diana. I wish the new family the very best!
Welcome to the world Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge!
You have quite an incredible life ahead of you.
