Now that Kate has landed her prince, I think there will be the inevitable comparisons to Diana. The world was enamored of Diana from the moment she stepped into the spotlight. She was a superstar and she eclipsed everyone else in the royal family. But she was equally as fragile, and didn't know how to handle her celebrity. By the time she was 23 years old, she was the Princess of Wales - the wife of the future King - and the mother of two princes. That would be too much for any 23 year-old girl. Kate, on the other hand, is well-educated and more mature.
I predict Wills and Kate will get married on July 1, 2011, the date which would have been Diana's 50th birthday. And do you realize that, when she and William get married, Kate will be only seven years younger than Diana was when she died? Imagine that.
They appear to be a nice young couple, and I wish them the best of luck.
