Prince William will marry Kate Middleton next year.
This news has really made my day, giving me a warm glowing feeling inside.
In a world so afflicted with injustice and with so many ominous signs for the future, such wonderful news serves to remind us of how lovely life can be if we choose to look on the brighter things, e.g. a happy affluent couple making a commitment to each other.
And this is why it's appropriate for the BBC to devote their entire news programme to this happy event - which affects all of us if we embrace the mood and share in the happiness.
Yesterday it was announced that David Cameron wishes to instigate a scheme whereby academics measure the happiness level of the nation (because there is more to life than GDP). Well, today, that level will be soaring to new heights!
