HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARTI.
The second story is of course the wedding of HRH Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton today in London. I remember William's parent's wedding back in the 1980s. We had the day off school and I remember being awake really early and waiting patiently with my family for the celebrations to begin. There had been a huge party and fireworks the night before which we had all watched. The weather was beautiful and the wedding when it arrived was spectacular. Big meringue dresses, flowers, music and carriage rides followed by big Royal excitement and kisses on balconies. Today of course has been spectacular but I feel it is more understated. The dress was kept mega secret until it was seen through the car. The designer a Brit from the home of McQueen who we so sadly lost last year. So now after all the excitement so far a few pictures to keep you going until that balcony scene and an RAF flypast.
