We still remember the image of a dapper Prince Charles in full naval dress uniform in 1981 as he and Lady Diana tied the knot in front of 3,500 guests and an estimated 750 million television viewers.
And we've taken note as his son, Prince William, embarked on military training with Britain's Royal Air Force, becoming a helicopter pilot with the Royal Navy's Search and Rescue Force.
But all this royal watching has led us to only one conclusion: Please, oh please, Prince William, don that uniform for the wedding. We admit, we're a sucker for a man in uniform, but that's not the only impetus behind our request. We're also smitten with tradition. Prince William's grandfather (the Duke of Edinburgh) and his father, Prince Charles, both walked up in the aisle in Royal Navy dress uniforms. We hope Prince Williams does the same.
