sprout 29: royal wedding
Today Prince William and Catherine Middleton got married at Westminster Abbey. This is the next to last in my series of daily "sprout" blog posts, so in sprouting terms what can I make of that local event between two people and two families that also watched by as of now an estimated 2,000,000,000 (that's 2 billion with a b) worldwide? I'd guess that for the British Commonwealth of Nations and the United Kingdom it means monarchy and royalty will continue as ceremonial and functional parts of their lives and worlds.
I searched for actual wedding photos with reuse/reuse with or without modification rights but there weren't any – yet – so this picture of Westminster Abbey seemed apt and so does the Bishop of London's wedding sermon (that's no longer online).
