It’s international news: Prince William married Kate Middleton on April 29, 2011.

A young woman, with no aristocratic background, really married a prince, and will now (until further notice) be remembered as the “poster child” for fairy tales that come true. Pomp and circumstance aside, I believe the world was exposed to an amazing Christian experience and the outward acceptance of Her Royal Highness’ new rule: the submissive wife.
I won’t be diving into this today, but I will say this: she has made a HUGE commitment to being married and supporting her husband. The life he’s always lived, she’s experienced parts of it for almost a decade, but now it will be a part of her everyday living, too. The degree she earned, the woman she independently was, will have to take a backseat to royal living.
She knew all of this beforehand, I’m sure of it. She is a woman who is mesmorizing to me because she is genuinely happy to take the side-seat or backseat to her husband. It’s a great expression of humility.
I wish them luck and many continued blessings.
