Did anyone else who watched the wedding find it a little surreal? I quite enjoyed it but it was definitely a clear break from the norm.
The only thing I know about the event is that the Bride stayed at Cliveden the night before. I love that place and have stayed, dined there many time. One of my favourite places! I once took my girlfriend there for her birthday and we swam in the 'Keeler' outdoor pool at midnight while it snowed! Memories I'll never forget!
I loved the scarcely-restrained giggles when the preacher gabbled on too long. Having listened to a similar preacher at my son's wedding, I knew how they felt. My mother did her best stage whisper of "For god's sake don't encourage him" when he paused for breath. But the best bit for me was the poor guy with the frisky white horse, which finally shoved its magnificent arse into the crowd. So not surreal for me, but weirdly familiar.
Sorry, I couldn't watch it as I am allergic to monarhical bullshit, it brings me out in hives! Just the thought of how much hard-earned money is forced from the poor-starving peasants, through a taxation-system desiged by the rich, to exempt the rich from paying it in (but makes them very good at taking it out) makes my vomitting projectile!
