“You look your best..”, says the Dude. “What ‘s that scaffolding like stuff behind you?”.
“Oh..that’s Pippa”, responds the not so shy lass..”But, is my best good enough for your Grandma?”.
“I wouldn’t know. Would I? But she is at her blithely best right now. Just look at her!”..A mild pause. “I know Pippa. But what is she holding?”.
“Of course, I know she is stiff lipped and doesn’t slip. Rather annoying at times. I won’t learn to get used to her..”. Shrugs her shoulder. “That’s the Train.. My dear Arthur!”.
“Please not that name. Not in front of Elton John”, wipes a wry smile off his face. “Hope it isn’t going to be Rocket Man today. You look beautiful by the way”.
“Awww” blushes. “Did you have a haircut after the rehearsals?”
“I did”, blushes. “Why do you need the Train ?”
“I don’t. But I am supposed to need the train. Haven’t figured out why.” Takes a deep breath. “It is almost like your jacket. I can’t seem to find any useful embellishments there although there are plenty of them..”
“I..err..there is a reason for that you know”, whispers. “History and Tradition”.
“Can you stay quiet for 30 minutes? The Priest is ready”, whispers in a hurry.. “He is going to ask us to do the vows”.
“The vows”..through the corner of the eye..”Wedding vows”.
“Oh..!”, looking directly at the priest..”Do I have time to prepare my vows now and all I need is 5 minutes. I will give them to you”.
“Use my iPad. There is an app for Royal vows..You can punch in your inputs real quick and you can have your vows ready in under a minute”, says the Priest with a naughty smile. “By the way, I have a weakness for Hats. So, please make it fast”.
And a few minutes later, the Dude and the Dudette or to be precise, the Duke and the Duchess were announced man & wife officially.
