“Behaving like a princess is hard work. It’s not just about looking beautiful or wearing a crown. It’s more about how you are inside.” – Julie Andrews
Forget Diana, I’m in Love with Kate
The media was all aghast the other day, and for the first time in my life I had real respect for royalty.
Kate, or to be more respectful, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, who is married to the Duke of Cambridge and second-in-line to England’s throne, was caught wearing a $29 dress.
And she’s even been caught wearing a dress more than once in public.
Heaven forbid, or so the media paparazzi, implied. I thought how refreshing.
But then of course I’m a person whose entire wardrobe could be easily squeezed into one large suitcase. Clothes are not, and have never been, important to me. Expensive jewelry even less.
I’ve never understood why someone would spend thousands of dollars on one dress, even if it’s a wedding dress, or even thousands more for one ring to go on one finger.
I’ve always thought there were so many better ways to spend money, even if you don’t give some of it to the poor and hungry.
What do you think?
