Newsletter editorial, Apr '11: Royal Wedding hype

Postby Dave » Fri 29 Apr 2011 09:31 GMT

In this month's editorial we looked at all the flim-flam surrounding the marriage of Willie Wales to Waity Katie, and asked what people were doing to celebrate/avoid the wedding.

Have you done anything special to mark/ignore the event? Let us know!

A slightly macabre thought has just occurred to me - today is the 66th anniversary of Adolf Hitler's marriage to Eva Braun. :shock:

Several days ago one of my older neighbours suggested we had a street party to celebrate and watch the Royal Wedding in London.

So we did, however, it wasn't a street party, it was a balcony party. I moved our TV outside and 7 of us gathered to partake of some light refreshments and enjoy the occasion..

A couple of the ladies wore hats, which I thought quite cute, everyone had there Sunday best clothes on and we had a happy time. Especially the ladies discussing some of the hats that were worn by the lady guests.

One neighbour, Toshka, commented on the fact that Prince William was not wearing his Royal Air Force Uniform. Thought that was very perceptive of Tosh. I also found it disappointing.

Anyway, all have now departed back to their homes having really enjoyed themselves.

By the way, I was the only English person there, the rest were all Bulgarians, and all pensioners as well.

I didn't intend to watch it, but since I was here and chained to the computer, I had the telly on and had a quick look from time to time. Have to say that Kate looked absolutely stunning in a beautiful dress that won't date according to fashion. Nice one. She looked incredibly composed too.

Well done to the newlyweds.

Latest bit of WeddingBalls - just heard on BBC News, where a reporter was doing a bit of vox pop stuff on Times Square in the aftermath of Osama bin Laden being killed. One of the crowd came up with this little gem:

You've just had the Royal Wedding, we've got this!

Several levels better than most jokes created for the occasion.

She looked incredibly composed too.

An excellent sign. Looks as if she'll be able to handle everything that goes with the job.
