1997: wedding of Infanta Christina and Inaki (then I wasn´t a real Royal watcher, but I remember my mum has watched it, and the 2nd TV-set was off)
1999: Wedding of prince Edward and Sophie
1999: Wedding of crown prince Philippe and Mathilde
I´ve watched it with my brother and he said all them time "Mathilde looks like an ex-model"
2001: Wedding of crown prince Haakon and Mette Marit
I´ve saved all pictures, I could get. And I remember that ppl have written messages almost every minute on the Scandinavian Royals MB...Nooo, I don´t make advertisment for an other board-> then TRF wasn´t existing
In my memory it is the most wonderful wedding so far. Great programme, a lot of emotions...and that for 3 days!
2001: Wedding of prince Constantijn and Laurentien
I´ve watched only parts of it...then my flatmate wanted to watch an other programme...and I have felt too ashamed to tell her, I´m a Royal watcher
2002: Wedding of crown prince Willem Alexander and Maxima
A winter wedding, something that I´m not really fond of. Maxima and Willem looked though happy
2004: Wedding of crown prince Frederik and Mary
It´s my 2nd favourite wedding...perfect staged. Mary looked lovely, and crying Frederik was wonderful to watch!
2004: Wedding of crown prince Felipe and Letizia
To be honest, I was disappointed. I mainly blame the date. Usually I make an event of a Royal wedding...some food, which fits to the country, sparkling wine or champagne, the TV placed next to the PC, the AIM on and then I talk with a friend, who watches all Royal weddings "with me". And then it was almost stressy....only 1 week between the two weddings. It wasn´t something, I was looking forward too. I´ve focused on the danish Royal wedding.
I also think the spanish TV has pointed out the catholic aspect too much and has "forgotten" the foreign watchers. I´m a catholic, and actually I like the "glamour-factor" in this church (though I also understand, when critics say, this doesn´t go together with Christianity...some things could be reformed, but that´s OT) but looking at all the statues of Saints and Maria was a bit boring. And when I say, they have forgotten the foreign watchers, I also mean the lack of "pictures" of the foreign Royals. In the cathedral in Copenhagen, they have shown the "top class" of european Royals every now and then
When cp Victoria would marry, I think, I would watch it live, I would go to Stockholm, though it´s said, you see more on TV (but I guess I would videotape it then, or I would watch it in the hotel in the evening)
And I still hope for a wedding of Albert! But I guess this would be utopia
I hope I didn´t get to detailed with this post...just wanted to share my experiences :)
And I hope others will do the same. It´s great to know, that I share something with ppl, I don´t really know and who had though similar feelings at the very same moment :)
