    “There will always be an England”

    “There will always be an England”

    Today it still seems possible:

    I watched it and I loved it.

    The flyover by WWII vintage bombers and fighter planes was a nice touch, recalling the memory of the song “There will always be an England.”

    And I’ll use any excuse to run this audio:

    @viator I'm trying to understand why Prince Charles wears so much fruit salad on his uniform while William only wears one medal, even though he's been in a combat unit in a theatre of war. Is that because he wore the Irish Guard uniform? Does the Prince of Wales get to wear some medals just for being who he is?

    I was up at 5 am EST watching the pomp and pageantry. Beautiful!! I watched Prince Charles and Princess Diana's wedding, and now their son William's. I wish the couple blessings and best wishes. This is a difficult time to live in a Western nation; to be royals is exponentially dangerous. I pray protection on them and their families.

    To @Bill – Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, wears decorations awarded for several things, most of which are honors bestowed by the Queen, by his position, and for his prior activities. As the Prince of Wales, he has numerous duties which result in such honors.

    To @Jeff – Hear, hear!!! I would love to see another Thatcher in Britain, as well as one on this side of the pond (another Reagan would also be super)!!

    To @Fuzzy – the high Christian ceremony was full of meaning, and the message delivered by the Bishop of London was down-to-earth, meaningful, and charming; the verses read were so full of meaning, as well!

    Cheers!!! To the William and Kate, the Duke and Dutchess of Cambridge!

    Watching a little royal pomp and circumstance beats watching our current pompous and circumstantial head of state. May the new couple have a happy life together and lead by their example.

    Other than Obama, who doesn't love the great mind, courage, and wry humility of "We are all worms. But I do believe that I am a glow-worm" Churchill?

    Good question Bill D., remember William is a (hon.) Colonel, Irish Guards, a fairly high officer. Many officers spend their careers and never reach colonel, but colonels, and their equivalents, get what in the US military is referred to as scrambled eggs, lot's of gold. I believe that badge on his chest is the Order of the Garter, or his knighthood, which makes him Sir William. Then there are his earned Air Force Wings, and an earned medal for participating in The Queen's Jubilee or graduating from Sandhurst.

    Both brothers are trained military pilots. Harry has served in combat.

    Sort of like the princes of the American elite
    (sarcasm).

    I married an Englishman. The Anglican wedding liturgy is, imo, the most beautiful of wedding ceremonies. The one of my wedding, my mother's wedding, my daughter's wedding. It is a poetic expression of uncompromising Christian faith. Few of us live up to it, but I would hate for it to be abandoned.
