The Happy Couple




Britain has gone Royal Wedding mad this week and tomorrow Prince William and Kate Middleton will be getting married in front of a worldwide audience.  The home where my Mum is living is having a Royal Wedding party and watching the proceedings on the telly followed by a garden party lunch so I will be going along to share the party with my Mum and the lovely ladies.  I've been rooting around for something red, white and blue to wear without much success so I shall just have to content myself with waving a small flag or wearing DH's velvet Union Jack hat.

I don't like to confront politics and such like on my blog but I do think the Royal Family work very hard for this country and with all the pressures of living in the public eye I would wish the soon-to-be-newly-wed couple a long and happy life together.  Britain excels at pomp and circumstance and everyone is getting very excited so I'm sure tomorrow will be a colourful spectacle which I will enjoy on the telly (I have kept away from all the prequels airing on the tv all week).  If you're getting into the spirit and enjoying a street party or family get together, have fun!

I will be watching on the TV tonight (Melbourne, Australia). It runs from late afternoon into the evening which is perfect.
As with any wedding I think we should wish them every happiness in the future.

Lovely post Julie and I heartily agree with your views here. I do think the press have gone into overdrive in the past week, but they haven't put me off watching it all on TV. Enjoy the party.

Everything went well for the wedding Julie. I do hope your mum and the other residents and yourself of course enjoyed it all, especially the garden party!

I thought it was superb didn't you. I can't believe I cried through the first part. Very strange for me ...

Hope you enjoyed the party with your Mum - I thought she the bride looked lovely and the police were magnificant in the way they controlled the crowd to go up the Mall. It was a lovely day for them too.

Wasn't it wonderful... Britain doing what Britain does best, wonderful happy smiling faces on the TV all day and such a lovely couple.

All you would have needed, Julie, is a hat. A very fancy hat.

I only saw the parts they showed on the TV news shows but really, they covered a lot of it. We didn't get any news except for the wedding. I thought it was pretty classy. I was actually sorry to see Kate (what do we call her now anyhow - I do not want to call her Princess William) wearing a veil over her face. That is so old and demeaning of a custom to me but that was the only thing I didn't enjoy. Well, the hats people wore got a bit wild! The wedding pictures are astounding. I hope you enjoyed yourself with your mum. And did you wear the velvet hat?
