My advice to anyone who dreams of marrying a prince, read your history. It's not pretty. At least this girl appears to be going into this thing with her eyes wide open. I wish the press would do the same, but that's not what readers want. Is it?

I'm not big on tabloids or following celebrity gossip. I don't know who the latest reality stars are or why I should care, but --you knew there was a but coming, didn't you? --I find it kind of creepy that Prince William gave his newly minted fiance his mother's engagement ring. Consider all it stands for. The hype of a fairy tale that a 19-year-old woman fell for, marrying a prince who was far from a prince and as is tradition in royalty didn't really want to marry her but did it for God and Country. The disaster that played out across the world stage. Her untimely death...it's all too creepy. William is playing it up as representing his mother and the good works she did. But to me it's sad.
