Yesterday I had every intention of rolling out of bed and casually sipping my coffee while watching the Royal Wedding. I had firm plans to relax and ‘have it on in the background’ while I did some day-off-admin.
Kind of like the fascinator I was wearing…
But come 11am British-Royal-Wedding time, I was sitting entranced on my couch wearing a party dress and a fascinator (a bit like the one pictured), bouncing up and down on the sofa and occasionally squealing like a little kid.
PeacefulYorkshire (who was also wearing a party dress) and I were Skyping so we could watch it together and talk about it. ’It’ ended up being mostly talking about people’s wedding hats – I think the British could teach the world a thing or two about how to rock a fantastic hat. (For the record, the ones that caused us to make the most noise were Princess Beatrice’s, Victoria Beckham’s and Tara Palmer-Tomkinson’s – opinions on a postcard, please…)
Anyway, I was completely swept up in the excitement and I think it was an awesome thing to be a part of. A fine day to be British! (Even though I’m still technically not British…)
It was AWESOME to see so many people gathered in London to celebrate. It seemed like there were some seriously good vibes flowing and everyone was having a royally excellent time.
How did you guys celebrate?? Did anyone go to London to take part in the big-style-party-atmosphere? Did anyone actually witness the balcony kiss first hand?? I’m still excited and I want to hear all about it…
