Royal Inspiration

With all of the buzz about the engagement of Prince William and Kate Middleton, I'm reminded of my all time favorite royal wedding of Princess Grace Kelly.

I think many people are fascinated with royal weddings because of the unique combination of formality and fantasy, which in many ways (not to mention the luxurious fashions) exceeds even lavish celebrity weddings.  There is something magnetic about the marriage of a princess or prince that is capable of capturing the world's attention.
