Wasn’t the wedding of William and Kate a really entertaining TV event?

Yep, Patti and I were among the 22 million Americans who got up early to watch the British nuptials.

I’m sure you’ve read all the stories about the wedding and the celebration.

As I was watching ABC News‘ coverage of the event, there is one item that stood out for me.

After the wedding and after the newly married couple had traveled by carriage to Buckingham Palace, Diane Sawyer, Barbara Walters and a couple of other British commentators in the booth with them were filling air time while the screen showed the Bobbies moving toward the Palace and the throngs of commoners who were following behind them.

During this time, one of the British commentators shared that to this day Prince Charles has not once put toothpaste on his own toothbrush. The commentator was serious about this, and used this anecdote to illustrate how royalty is curried to and cared for in Britain. It wasn’t a joke.

All I could think of is what would happen if Charles ever needed a condom.

Good luck, William and Catherine.
