I’ve been keeping my nose out of the Royal Wedding hubbub, except this headline (naturally) grabbed my eye. Turns out that Prince William blew a lot of people out of the water by choosing to wear the scarlet uniform of the Irish Guard- a U.K. unit stationed in Afghanistan at the moment- as a tribute to his countrymen (and comrades, as he is an honorary Colonel) who have served and fallen.
It was somewhat surprising and very touching to me.
You all knew this was coming sooner or later. Sean Bean in Sharpe’s, a historical television program about the exploits and adventures of the 95th Regiment of Riflemen- of course clad in their iconic green and black uniform…
