My trip to London to see The Royal Wedding!!


Hello lovely THL friends. I have just had the most enjoyable few days away in London joining the 1 million other people who decided to make the trip into London and celebrate The Royal Wedding! I hope you will enjoy looking at some of our family snaps of the occasion!
We arrived in London Thursday afternoon and went straight to Buckingham Palace to see the sites before the Wedding the next morning.






We took full advantage of the roads being closed and wandered around outside Buckingham Palace and along The Mall where many people had been camping for days to get the perfect vantage point!
      The "press pods" where we saw Piers Morgan!  
Round the corner from The Palace just off The Mall, the guards outside Clarence House



Down The Mall and along to Trafalgar Square
 

Outside The Savoy Hotel! 

The BIG DAY

The Bride!  
We headed off to Hyde Park to watch on the big screens with 120,000 others and waited for the balcony appearance 

The Lancaster, Spitfire and Hurricane fly right over our heads 





A nice touch from The Ritz Hotel 


and also from The Lady magazine offices 


I'm very proud to be British and so glad that we went on that special day. 
 Thank you for sharing it with me
Hugs, Charlotte xx

  11. How cool is that, that I have a follower who "attended" the royal wedding in London! :) I watched, and cried right here from the states. So nice to meet you Charlotte. Waving back to you from Pa, USA! :)

  12. I think my favourite moment from this had to be when the two of them walked out onto the balcony and you could see Kate saying "Oh wow!" when she saw just how many people were there. It just seemed absolutely natural. Or as natural as a Royal Wedding can ever be.

    I did toy with the idea of booking myself into serviced apartments London and going up there for the Wedding but I didn't in the end. It would have been an experience but there were just so many people there, I think I'd have gone mad. And I suppose there's always the possibility of Prince Harry getting married.
