Congratulations Wills and Kate!

This morning the whole family have been sitting in front of the tv watching the Royal Wedding! We're not massive royalists, but wanted to witness this historic occasion. Weddings are always fascinating, and this one, between one of the favourite members of the royal family, Prince William, and his lovely bride, Kate Middleton, has caught the public consciousness.

Here is the happy couple (courtesy of Reuters - we weren't actually invited to the ceremony!) and they certainly do seem to be genuinely in love and enjoying every minute. Also, DD has been reading out amusing comments from Twitter, which added to our enjoyment.
Check out Princess Beatrice's hat - high fashion or a huge mistake? From the front, I thought it looked more like a frozen alien chicken, but then, what do I know about hats!

I still can't get over the fact that her wedding dress is so similar to the one I wore only 18 months ago - boy have I got class!!!

i enjoyed watching the festivities today too...especially with all of the horrible things going on in the world right now, it was nice to enjoy the fairy tale wedding, taking a break from the sadness, and see the Prince marry a wonderful and beautiful woman. i remember watching when Diana married Charles, and i remember that being magical too :)
As for the octopus of a hat...yikes! there were a few ugly hats, but most of them were a lot of fun!

As for the hat on Beatrice...wrong wrong wrong ...I'm sorry but with the heavy make-up and the beige outfit she looked more like a centaur! (I could have my head cut off for that comment!) LOL

We watched and we made cakes and had them with tea during the service. :o) Miss H kept waiting for the vicar to say "you can kiss the bride"...she was mighty upset when she realized we had to have lunch and wait until they appeared on the balcony before she would see the kiss!! LOL
