The Royal Wedding

Some people have fallen in love with her; others wonder what the fuss is about; anyone with even a passing interest in current affairs would find it hard not to recognise her face, so widely is it featured.
She has become a one-name brand – in conversation and in print, people are referring to the year-old simply as ‘Kate’, in the style of Madonna, Elvis and Marilyn, encroaching on territory belonging once to Kate Moss. She is being credited with kicking off a ‘Sloane revival’, with creating instant bestsellers of the clothes she wears, and, of course, with having captured the heart of a future king.

No mention of the royal grooms, by the way. That is the focus on some larger discussions in Britain and America. In this day and age, does it matter? Few people — royal or otherwise — seem bothered by the fact that Prince William and his fiancee, Kate Middleton, have been living together off and on during the course of their eight-year romance, which began in university days. The more modern approach gives many royal watchers hope that William, 28, and Middleton, 29, will fare better in their marriage than Charles and Diana, whose very public marital breakdown tarnished the image of the royal family.
The British public seems comfortable with the royal family having updated its unwritten behavior codes to bring them more in line with widely held social values. When Charles and Diana wed, his history of dating was not an issue. Charles may well have wanted to marry girlfriend Camilla Shand, but she was not seen as an appropriate choice because she had had several previous boyfriends. There is no longer an investment in being anachronistic, or a public expectation that they ought to be harkening back to a different era of sexual politics.
The code of behavior has evolved — slowly — over the centuries as social values change. It is the monarch who sets the tone, so the views of Queen Elizabeth II have prevailed for nearly six decades. This was particularly important before paternity testing. A spokesman for Prince William, who refused to be identified because of royal policy, said palace officials would not comment on whether attitudes have changed, preferring to leave that role to others.
