I’m like the boy that cried wolf about Royal Wedding stuff, I know. And I seriously promise this is the last one for this week. Mostly because I am leaving to go out of town for Mother’s Day and won’t be back until Sunday.
I first read about the royal wiggly worm yesterday in an interview with Camilla Parker whatever her name is now. She was talking about how no one had noticed that her granddaughter was holding a toy wiggly worm in the official royal picture.
Apparently the sweet and hunky Harry is also very good with kids. Since he knew his main duties of that very important day were to A) keep the wedding ring safe and B) help Her Royal Hotness Pippa Middleton wrangle up all those kids; he had the amazing forethought usually reserved for people who have small children to bring an emergency toy.
Harry was carrying the wiggly worm in his pocket to try to head off any toddler meltdown. At some point Camilla’s granddaughter Eliza Lopes said she has had it with this nonsense. She was tired of having to be on display and it was obviously past her nap time. Harry pulled out the worm and all was ok again.
As to how the $1 toy made it into the official wedding photo…the number one rule of parenting a small child is You Never Take The Thing Away That Makes The Crying Stop. Period.
