    Default The royal wedding

    Well, I've been trying to figure our how to spend the day when Kate and Prince William wed on April 29th. If I go out there and brave the crowds I'm going to miss the ceremony on the "telly." The palace is only about a 5-10 min. walk from our flat. I was reading about past weddings and it said that some people will stake out their spot along the processional route a couple of days ahead. NO WAY!!! I'm not doing that. There are people spending 100,000 pounds to get a private view of the processional from various places along the route. Can you imagine? I have a feeling I'll watch the ceremony on TV and as soon as it's over I'll get Joe to hoof it over to the palace with me. I have a feeling the crowds will be so enormous that we won't be able to get anywhere near the route. I have to give it a try. I imagine I'll be snapping lots of pictures but mostly of the crowds partying in the streets. LOL

    I remember watching Di's wedding from beginning to end, I'll do the same with her son. I don't know what it is with we American's and royalty but a large percentage of us are smitten. My husband is British and he doesn't get it at all. Oh well, I'll be blued to, as you all say, the telly.

    I won't be watching. I figure I'll see all I need to on TV without even trying - it'll be everywhere. I too am sorry that Diana won't be there. She was and amazing woman. Wishing the best for the young couple,

    I got a sewing machine for my husband. Good trade, huh!?!

    Rebecca what a wonderful opportunity to be so close! I would imagine there will be throngs of onlookers. On one hand such a great chance to catch a glimpse, on the other hand you might miss the ceremony right? I would probably do what you thinking just to feel apart of the excitement & say I was actually there! Myself, well to be honest, I'm just not into it. I feel sad that he won't have his mum there and will probably catch it on the news but won't watch every minute. If I was in your place I would probably be caught up in all the festivities! Hope you have fun & enjoy!

    I'm going to watch what I can before work and DVR the rest. I can't wait--love all the pomp and circumstance.

    That sound like a lot of fun, Michele. I don't think mimosas are very British, but who cares, right? They taste so yummy. I guess a pint of ale would be more appropriate but I don't think beer would be so great with scones and tea. Hahahaha.

    Today, we went for a walk to Hyde Park Corner via Buckingham Palace.There were loads of people around because of a huge runners' marathon (35,000 runners). I'm trying to imagine that area on the wedding day compared to what I saw today. It's going to be VERY crowded!!!!!!!

    I think it's a girl thing. Guys just don't seem to appreciate these things. Joe is so NOT into this upcoming wedding. He'll go out with me, though, even if I have to drag him. Haha.
