The Royal Wedding

I've been obsessed with the Royals for sometime, so obviously I was super excited about the royal wedding. Our family went to the Lion and the Rose to watch the wedding festivities. They were having wedding coverage all day. The food is good and pretty authentic. We arrived complete with hats and were sitting right by a giant screen. Our timing however was a little off, because the Spurs were also playing and this was the game that determined their future, so half way through the wedding coverage we got cut off with the Spurs game. Spurs mania was rampt in the pub, so there was no chance that they were switching back to the wedding coverage. We finished up our dinner and decided to go home to watch the rest of the coverage on BBC America. I was a little sad that the wedding pub party was not exactly as advertised and I probably built it up in my head (where were the prizes?!) In the end though it was fun to hang out with the family.

This is a great picture of Dad. Love his hat!

I recorded the wedding coverage and watched it with my friend last night. We were all about the hats. Glad you carried on the spirit. Loved the BBC America coverage.

Love the hats!! We watched the wedding too - and really enjoyed it. My husband spent 18 very happy years working on the Royal Air Force Squadron that Prince William now works - so he was delighted to see the yellow helicopter flying overhead as the happy couple left Buckingham Palace.
