This should really be a tweet. - I grew up in the same county as Kate Middleton! No wonder they call it the Royal County of Berkshire. There's Windsor at one end and Wallingford at the other where Saxon King Alfred had his HQ or something. - Anyway, he fought the Danes and there are lDanish broad swords in the Reading Museum; apparently they kept losing them overboard as they came up the Thames. And now there is Bucklebury - a rather posh Berkshire village where Kate Middleton grew up.
Many a time as a damp young thing in my school uniform, I have watched the big red double decker Thames Valley buses grind by, with BUCKLEBURY or more often, BUCKLEBURY COMMON on the front. Little did we know!
And Kate is so lovely - she has all those mandatory inches between bust and waist that make looking good so much easier. And she has that lovely dimple when she smiles. She's absolutely Bucklebury's Shirley Temple.
Can't wait! But watch out with BBC America. From what I've seen, they're ladling out the treacle so thick I can hear those cynical, young English producers saying: "Lard it on! Yanks love this stuff."
