Well, what did you think of it?

I have to say that I watched most of the ceremony from early on and I can say that the Royal Wedding was another example of British pageantry at its best. The enormous and happy crowds are also doing their bit to make it a truly memorable day.

I'd also like to add that the 'policing' of the people was exemplary and well planned, which went a long way to keeping them happy after many hours of waiting.

Was anyone else who saw it as pleased as me? TC.

Looks very nice and "Royals go all inclusive" would be a headline befitting current times!

It looks just as idyllic as my wife's hairdresser said it was, Peter. She and her hubby go there very often, alternating each year with the various luxurious islands in the Caribbean.

The hairdressing thing is just for her friends as she holds a high-powered job at our College. Her husband was a senior ranking officer in the London river police until retirement, and he now holds a full time senior civilian post at our local police HQ. TC.

Another award for UK Ltd putting on a great show. Pity that certain guests have difficulty finding a razor even though they are millionaires though link text - tends to lower the tone in my opinion.

Hopefully this couple will fare better than Charles and Di. But then Charles has been an unlucky name for royalty in this country.

johndrew. I just made the point that, although they have equivalent ranks, William was senior to Harry having been a Flt Lt for some years. Thanks for the link. Interesting how things have changed since my forty years of service!

Well, a jolly enjoyable day and just goes to prove that nobody does pagent like us Brits. However, as a Bucklebury resident, I'll be glad to be able to get out of the house without tripping over a foreign camera crew!

Mind you, there were some advantages. As a small quiet rural community, it was the first time we'd seen police in the village for ages (how come they never turn out when our sheds are burgled?). Also, Vodafone dumped a mobile 3G booster station in the village so our normal half-a-bar signal went up to max for the day - mind you, fat chance of persuading them to leave it behind.

Anyway, good luck to the couple and here's hoping for a very quick fade back into quiet obscurity for Bucklebury.

With regard to our earlier conversation regarding the delectable Pippa! it would seem that we are not alone in finding her the star of the show. A star is born

She'll need to keep her feet on the ground. I imagine that she will be seen out and about in the London clubs, and there's a very obvious security risk involved.

"I imagine that she will be seen out and about in the London clubs,"

Mmmh, maybe not. She's a pretty balanced lass and, anyway, late night trains back to Thatcham (our nearest station) are somewhat rarer than a banker saying sorry. Besides which, word on the [rustic] grapevine is that the family are thinking of moving to Gloucestershire.

I didn't say she wasn't, I said she would probably be seen out in London. She has certainly been seen in London nightclubs on many occasions in the past.

I'm not sure what trains have to do with it - I very much doubt that you'll see her on one. Philippa is a party organiser, and is well-known amongst the London socialite set.

Oh no.

Misread it!
