Truthfully, the news sorta "came and went" in our household; I got more emails and calls from friends and family in the US wanting to chat about the royal engagement than anything I read myself or heard on the news. Happy for them and all, but
Then came the news I could get behind. Apparently, the UK government, as confirmed by Prime Minister David Cameron, will announce a national holiday....another day off of work for all the UK... to coincide with the wedding.
I suppose I can put up with what will be the relentness engagement and wedding coverage, such as "Will Kate pick a UK designer to design her wedding dress?" or "What day will the actual wedding be held on?" and "How touching that Prince William gave Kate his mother's engagement ring!" The real news is another day off!
OK, now we're talking!
