Re: Royal Wedding: Today's the Day!

I can't disagree with anything you've said @Cleoriff.

I actually remember seeing the Queen's coronation which was shown on TV in the States. I can't remember if it was shown live or not but I do remember thinking how marvelous it all was. I can't say for sure but I think my love of Britain started when I watched the coronation. We had nothing like that in America and the pomp and ceremony fascinated me as a young child.

I knew very little about this country but was spurred on to find out everything I could after that.

So you can blame Queen Elizabeth II for my being here today 65 years on. Yes folks it's all her fault 🤣😂

Re: Royal Wedding: Today's the Day!

I didn't watch any of the stuff prior to the Royal Wedding ... found the whole day perfect ... it's worth my licence fee alone to have watched it Smiley Happy

Not quite @jonsie they're still showing highlights of the wedding. I'd say coverage of the new royal couple will go on the rest of this week at least.

No still going on. As Glory says plenty of highlights (which I watched again this morning) joy

Still interviewing people who were there or not....an interview with the dress designer filled 15 minutes of news today

Apparently the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be hosting a garden party for the 70th birthday of Prince Charles on Tuesday. Load and loads more coverage

Oh I nearly forgot...they had the KIngdom Choir on BBC news this morning, we had an impromptu song from them....

I think Harry and Meghan will be news for weeks @jonsie. You best hibernate...joy

Re: Royal Wedding: Today's the Day!

According the the BBC news presenters, there is so much coverage in todays papers, it's as if the wedding happened only yesterday tongue winking

Apparently, at the reception and again breaking with tradition, Meghan made a speech. As did Harry and William (who referred to Harry as Has thoughout.

At the evening party there was a game of beer pong. initiated by James Corden. I understand Harry, William and Prince Charles participated.

You see @jonsie there is NO escape. Even if you turn off the news, Cleo, the mad royalist, will keep you updated

Oh I have just heard another snippet. Guests to the wedding were given slippers (in case they got worn out standing in high heels. (Not sure, in the interest of equality, whether this gift was given to the men)...wink
