I am watching the HATS -- entering the Abbey, so many huge hats in brilliant colors ... I am delighted I don't have to sit behind one of them. You wouldn't be able to see a THING. BBC America is my first choice for viewing...oooh, the Beckhams, Victoria all in black. Her little hat is kind to those behind her.

Kristine Hughes and Victoria Hinshaw said...

The Archbishop of Canterbury needs to have his beard trimmed -- in an interview before the wedding he is very soft spoken and sweet, but he definitely should visit the barber shop ... 45 minutes to seeing Harry and the groom.

Kristine said...

Oh, God. Duke of Cambridge. Beckhams. . . coffee . . fags. . back soon. . . .

Kristine Hughes and Victoria Hinshaw said...

Wonderful views of London -- the Abbey, the Palace, along Whitehall and through Horse Guards. I almost feel I am there...almost.

Kristine said...

Okay, I'm awake. Where's the dress already!?!? Haven't seen the beard yet. Watching CNN and Matt Lauer. Vicky - why aren't we at the Rubens!?!?!

Kristine Hughes and Victoria Hinshaw said...

Red carpet in the Abbey, alid overnght, according to the BBCAmerica commentator. And I love the trees...

Kristine Hughes and Victoria Hinshaw said...

Actually, I think we have the best views right here on tv...see get everything. And don;t have to wear a hat!!

Kristine Hughes and Victoria Hinshaw said...

There is Sir Elton in the Abbey. Hi, guy!!

baroness said...

John Major coming in to the Abbey ...
I am drinking English Breakfast tea, very tasty. Scones waiting...

baroness said...

Huge crowds in Hyde Pak watching the jumbotrons (sp?) and all the military bands marching round. It is too exciting and SOOOOOOOOO British.

And huge busses bringing the guests...Home Secretary Mrs. May and husband...ultimately responsible for the security.

Kristine said...

Why don't the Beckhams sit down already!?!? Love the trees in the Abbey. Where's Mr. Bean? Thank God it's not bucketing down rain. Where's my scone?

baroness said...

Now the little girls in the street want to go after Prince Harry...how cute. His girlfriend Chelsey is already in her seat.

baroness said...

Also, I am watching the official monarchy site on YouTube -- streaming live from the Abbey at the moment ...good views here too.

baroness said...

PM David Cameron has arrived at the Abbey . . . wife in green and sans hat...are those flowers in her hair? He looks dapper in his morning suit...

M. Denise C. said...

The Prime Minister's wife has no hat!!

baroness said...

Lovely music in the Abbey...Fantasia on Greensleeves at the moment...

And NO RAIN -- at least not yet.

baroness said...

Prince William will be known as the Duke of Cambridge according to BBC America -- -- Catherine is to be the Duchess of Cambridge - All HRHs of course.

Kristine said...

PM's wife not wearing a hat. And Earl Spencer not wearing a gag.

baroness said...

Wills will be coming out of his house soon . . .
flags along the mall . . .
Here he comes...he is in his red uniform as colonel of the Irish Guard, I think they said...many cheers

Margaret Evans Porter said...

Am about to brew a pot of my Berry Bros. & Rudd loose tea...the 1st of many I expect. BBC America & BBC Radio 4 are my informants.
It's nice to see favourite haunts but am thankful to be watching from the privacy of home. I was in London during the Princess of Wales's funeral which reinforced my dislike of being among great crowds.

baroness said...

Great views of the two princes in the car...saluting the Centograph and about to arrive at the Abbey.

Kristine said...

Men in uniform!

baroness said...

Mrs. Middleton arriving with her husband -- she will be in sky blue, according to the BBC -- and he is doing a reading. Cozy!!

baroness said...

Mrs. M. looks stunning in her pale grey-blue...now here are the Yorks leaving Buck House...I may have to quit writing soon and just try to take it all in!

baroness said...

Charles and Camilla are on their way...and all the extended royal family is in the Abbey...what fun!

baroness said...

Camilla in Anna Valentine, champagne coat and dress, Philip Tracy hat...BBC America has it all!

baroness said...

The Queen is also on her way to the Abbey. She is in canary yellow!! Philip in his redcoat...Charles was in dark blue, BTW.

baroness said...

Got a good view of the A. of Canterbury greeting the Prince of Wales...and he definitely has been to the barber...beard nicely trimmed. Good show, old boy!

Kristine said...

Oh, the dress is gorgeous! I'm crying already.

baroness said...

Lots of lace on the bride's gown...and here they come to the Abbey. Mr. M has the train on his lap I think.

baroness said...

The dress is stunning -- by Sarah Burton as so often predicted...and perfect.

baroness said...

They have arrived at the Palace as I write this. What a perfect, wonderful ceremony, entirely appropriate and they all looked magnificent!

Kristine said...

Absolutely gorgeous. And Kate couldn't be more regal.

baroness said...

Now the surge towards the palace down the mall...BBC America is in the middle of it...waiting for the kiss, then I must prepared for the Royal Wedding luncheon I am attending... with my coy of the Wedding Programme (via iPad) and lots of pictures saved from this very blog. Hurrah!! Weather even cooperated -- it's lamost un-British.

Kristine said...

Now for the kiss!

Diane Gaston said...

I should have known you ladies would be up and commenting. I've been up since 4:30 and haven't missed a thing.

Agree with all you've said, but I have to add how much I LOVED Kate's sister's dress! Omigosh it is so simple but beautiful.

Kristine said...

Diane - I was shocked that Pippa wore white! Though it did look good. Now that the wedding's over, maybe those two girls will eat something.

Elizabeth Kerri Mahon said...

I was shocked too that Pippa wore white. I think that dress would have looked just as nice if it had been a creamy champagne color. Also shocked that Samantha Cameron was not wearing a hat.

I loved the new Duchess of Cambridge's dress, I thought it was simple, elegant and suited her to a T. Adored the two kisses. Am now waiting for my 2 books from the UK, Invitation to a Royal Wedding and the Alison Weir/Kate Williams/Tracy Borham book.

Louisa Cornell said...

They look so happy and relaxed. Her dress reminds me of the one Grace Kelly wore. His uniform in in memory of some men in the Irish Guard who were killed in Afghanistan.

WHY aren't we in England for this? SOB!!

vicky said...

On BBC America, Elizabeth, one of the commentators said that it is the English tradition for the bridesmaids to wear the same colors as the bride...so Pippa's dress was correct, as well as lovely. The little girls dreses were so beautiful, with the pleating like Catherine's. And the weather held!

I think we had the best view on tv, though I would certainly love to be there!! How about next month???
