Royal Wedding

No pictures -- you can find them everywhere online. It's been interesting here. A lot of us watched from the early phase of the royal arrivals at Westminster Abbey -- online and on the TV just outside our office. At teatime we went down to the staff lounge/tea garden area where the TV was better and more people were watching. We had cucumber sandwiches and real strawberries and cream with our tea!

Quite a conglomeration of people watching the whole ceremony -- English, Australian, Indian, New Zealand, American, Canadian, you name it. Talk about a mixed-up cultural event!

If you get to watch it or the reruns, do enjoy the music. It was quite fabulous.

  1. In Victoria, Canada, at the Empress Hotel, monarchists watched the ceremony together at midnight, all dressed in lovely PJs, robes and the usual assortment of crowns and the like. Ah, the Commonwealth.
