Royal wedding fever even reached portugal and in a big way. All last week there were various programmes covering the big day. On monday, i saw a 'morning tv' show, where they were doing a slot called 'princess for a day' where a viewer got to be madeover and treated like a princess. I was really surprised that there was so much attention here. At the time of the wedding, there was no less than 4 channels covering the ceremony and various others showing clips. THe power of a 'royal wedding' always amazes me. My husband is always complaining at the 'tax payers' cost, which is a fair but on the other hand, the money spent on the merchandising of the comemarative items, tourism income, income for tv channels and so it goes on, money will be made, lots of it.
But a point which many people made was that it was a worldwide shared happy event, at a time when a little happiness is very much needed.
I wish them all the luck in the world and hope they have a long and happy marriage.
