Congratulations to Catherine and William! What a wonderful wedding it was, so beautiful. I woke up at 5:30am to watch it here in New York. I stood in my pajamas for God Save the Queen and then rushed off to work in my best wedding attire to hang bunting and organize a Royal Breakfast for my American colleagues. Strong tea, bacons sandwiches, digestives biscuits and a great deal of British pride were served up along with the re-runs and commentary on the Royal wedding. It really was a very special event, I was so very proud to be British and for the first time in 8 years of being an ex-pat, more than a little homesick. As the chap in Tea&Sympathy said when I bought the biscuits... "anyone can become a celebrity, but no-one can become a Royal...except for Kate!". Now that's a fairy-tale.
Here's the homemade bunting and breakfast fun that my lovely Brit colleagues David, Kath and I organized.
