The cats and the kittens were left to dream,

Of chubby mice and milk and cream.

The humans depart in great anticipation,

Wedding invitations in hand and filled with elation.

To witness the vows of Prince Harry and Meghen.

This day will be memorable, sunny and green.

They join the crowds in all their elegant outfits.

Ladies hats, unsurpassed in brilliance, are hits!

In St Georges Chapel the excitement, is filled with expectation,

The Bride arrives, her gown of simple beauty causes sensation!

Royal children with flowers and holding her veil, so sweet,

Prince Harry’s smile of love shows as they meet.

Their smiles of happiness are a joy for all to see.

And are mirrored by everyone all through-out the day,

As they follow the service the singing and the vows they say.

Then they happily depart and greet the Windsor crowds with a wave.

And they joyfully kiss under the flowers in the nave.

The cats and the kittens are quite unaware,

But the world knows the celebration of love was quite rare.

May we wish them a long & great life filled with success,

For doing fine things to be proud of, we expect no less!
