Jarrah and I watched some Tivo'd footage of the royal wedding this afternoon. Here are some of her thoughts.
Jarrah: At what age will I become a princess?
Sam: Um, you won't. Unless you marry a prince.
Jarrah: But Levi isn't a prince!
Sam: No, he's not. But he's a very nice boy. Plenty of people marry non-princes and feel fine about it. I did.
On the music: "Why is there an opera happening during the wedding?"
On a close-up of the organ: "Wow! That is a really huge tuba!"
On seeing the choir for the first time: "Why are they making them sit in the other room?"
On the profusion of hats: "Look, I have a hat just like theirs." (She had a sticker jutting out between her eyebrows at the time.)
On military dress: "How come the army has to be at the wedding?"
On the arrival of Camilla Bowles and Queen Elizabeth:
Jarrah: That's her mum?
Sam: No, the Queen is Prince Charles's mum.
Jarrah: Then how come she and the other lady look alike?
On Kate Middleton: "She's pretty. All princesses are pretty, right?"
On Prince William: "He seems nice."
On the ceremony: "I hope they don't kiss. I don't want to have to watch that."
