The pomp, circumstance and military trappings of the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton was light years away from the teachings of the vulnerable man Jesus who was executed by the Romans, says Sande Ramage. Despite that ‘The Royals at the Abbey’, with the full co-operation of the church, keep trying to blend two irreconcilable concepts.
Only three hours sleep. That’ll teach me to twitter endlessly about the royal wedding while quaffing bubbly. Tragic behaviour, but I had to do something to make it through another repeat of ‘The Royals at the Abbey’.
While all eyes were on Katie’s posh designer number, I couldn’t help but notice Will’s fancy uniform and the preponderance of military clobber clanking about the place.
Ironic, isn’t it, that an itinerant Jewish mystic who preached a message of radical love, even to the point of loving your enemies, should be associated with a church saturated with military memorabilia.
