Lately, I’ve been very astonished about hearing the Royal Wedding on news. Prince William marrying Kate Middleton, a middle-class woman. Honestly speaking, who wouldn’t be jealous with her? It’s like a fairytale come true. I love fairytales but I never expected that it would happen for real well, not for me I guess. But it’s really hard to believe that there is such a thing a modern fairytales.
As I read some articles from the internet about the royal couple’s love story, I’m very amazed of how their love story turned out. One of my favorite movies is Princess Diaries. Well, learning the two’s love story reminds me of the movie, well at least for Kate. She’s an instant princess and soon to be, a queen. I envy her so much. Imagine, from a middle-class family, you’ll end up living in a castle, marrying a prince, having a true queen and king as your parent-in-law, wearing beautiful dresses that only royal families could wear, wearing a crown, doing royal traditions and the like. She’s very blessed indeed.
Back when I was a child, I always dreamt of being a princess with my own castle and a prince charming. That’s why until now, I still love watching fairytale-like movies (but of course in a modern way). I imagined myself as living in a monarchy country where I could somehow have the chance to meet or be in the same school the crown prince or other members of the royal family. But since Philippines don’t work that way, I imagined myself like Shan Cai of Meteor Garden or Jan Di of Boys Over Flowers where I could meet an almost-prince charming in the same school I am in. It’s almost like a fairytale. Haha. You’ll be the most popular girl because you’re dating that guy who’s the son of a multi-billionaire and not just dating, he is madly in love with you. I may sound as a hopeless romantic but think of it, is there a girl who never wanted that? Is there a girl who never wanted to be like a princess or an almost-princess? Of course, some would say they would prefer to live a simple life but please, everyone loves that. Everyone wants to be a member of a royal family or an upper family in a society.
But anywho, we all got our own fairytale. Some of us are fortunate enough to find their own prince charming. Some of us are very lucky to find and marry a real prince. To those who haven’t found theirs yet, don’t lose hope. There’s a time for everything and your very own prince will come to you when you least expect it.
