An Ode to the Princess

In times of tumult, the people look for reprieve - not necessarily for a visionary to guide them out of their troubles (although that is also much-needed), but a glimmer of hope, an ideal of what life could look like, a beacon of beauty.

Enter: Kate Middleton. With a name that rolls off the tongue and speaks to her humble upbringing, this image of youth and beauty glides in with impeccable timing to do just what we need her to do. She's for the most part silent, but when she does speak, the masses (and the media) hang onto her words, hoping that in some way she can impart just a bit of that vigor, poise and grace. In a manner reminiscent of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy in the White House of the 1960s, Kate Middleton displays a savvy sense of style and etiquette that makes her welcome in any and every setting, but with just enough sass to keep the powers that be on their toes. With charm, and wit, and a sweet smile, Kate Middleton has soothed the nay-sayers and endeared herself to the world.

And so we tip our hats to you, Her Royal Highness, Princess William of Wales, not only because you have made it fashionable for us gals to once again don hats, but because you embody all that we want to be: beautiful, poised, elegant in every situation and, well, a princess. May God bless the Queen - and may you be the future queen.
