A Right Royal Knees Up!!



I am not an avid royalist, however I could not let this monumental occassion pass without a mention on my blog. From 8 o'clock yesterday morning I sat glued to my television screen, taking in every wonderful moment of the Royal couples big day. I was joined by my dear friend at ten o'clock & we both sat 'oohing' & 'aahhing' as the guests arrived. I tried to take in every single little detail as I really want to remember the day for a long, long time. I was very young when Prince Williams' parents married & can only vaguely remember a few details (mainly Lady Diana's dress being very crumpled as she entered the cathedral). It was nice to see a few celebrities there too (David Beckham looked very handsome & Victoria was stunning but I do wish she would smile more often, & what on earth was wrong with Tara Palmer Tompkinsons' nose??!!) You could almost feel the excitement in London as the bridesmaids & pageboys exited the hotel & got into the waiting cars as you knew that the next person to leave would be the bride. And didn't she look stunning!! A beautiful, elegant dress that wasn't overfussy & distracting from Kates' natural beauty, she wore the dress rather than the dress wore her. Even before the commentator mentioned it I said to my friend that it reminded me of Grace Kelly's wedding dress. And wasn't it heartwarming to read Prince Williams' lips as he saw her for the first time "You look lovely, you look beautiful."

I wish I had being able to be in London yesterday to see everything first hand & soak in the atmosphere (although a better view was had watching it on the television), the crowds were very well behaved & controlled and it is events like this that make me very proud to be British & what makes Britain Great. I wish both the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge a very happy marriage. Congratulations!!

Same here Kerry, I really wasnt bothered watching it all, but as soon as the children came downstairs all dressed in red , white and blue and waving their flags I had to get the tv on, and then I was quite hooked! I thought she looked picture perfect and adored the dress. Her sister and mother too. I thought Victoria Beckham looked like she was going to a funeral and David , though handsome, abit of a 'Ken' doll lookalike with too much face make up and the coiffed hair! At least he smiled though! Didnt like Andrews girls outfits and Eugenes hat was bizaree! The couple looked to sweet and my fav bit was them leaving in the Aston, William driving, just like an everyday wedding couple, how cool was that! Enjoy the rest of your bank holiday weekend, Love Kate xxx

Hi Kate, to be honest I thought Andrews' girls looked a bit like panto dames, whoever gave them styling tips should be sacked, lol. The happy couple did look stunning & I loved Kates' face when she stepped out onto the balcony & saw the crowd & when she mouthed 'wow', I think she was quite overwhelmed with it all, bless her. I hope you & yours have a very enjoyable bank holiday too. Hugs, Kerry.x.

Working with white clay is so hard well done , i always seem to get bits in mine !I agree with kerry about the panto dames !! but kate looked like a classic beauty loved the dress, and driving off together reminded me of stuart little in his toy car sooo sweet !

Hi Petite-Pantry (apologies but I don't know your name), I detest working with white because it does pick up the tiniest piece of...well anything, really!! My hands are completely scrubbed before I handle it & I use a very tiny sprinkling of talc on my hands as I find this does help. I also avoid using handy wipes when working with white clay. Hugs, Kerry.x.
