  1. You certainly have most of the best snips! And didn’t include any of those I could have done without …
    I loved the part where the audience were invited (told) to participate in the vows!

      1. Oh, I agree with you and I loved every moment of it. I appreciate how despite the wonderful pomp and circumstance, the formality has eased a little. This wedding was like no other royal wedding. Americanised in parts by neccessity and in a way it was a breath of fresh air. I do hope, however, that this is not the beginning of the end. Our old and true traditions should remain exactly as they are.

    1. Mouse had a couple of drinks and his friend Toad from Toad Hall gave him a lift home. Owl on the other hand, because he was flying home remained pretty much sober. I was under no such restrictions and my bottle is now empty!

  2. I left England in February 1951 for Australia, I was a £10.0.0d Pom;

    I’ve now been in Australia for 67 years and am still English and as an Englishman I’m a Royalist through and through. I also wear an Australian hat, to which I consider myself entitled; and as such a committed Republican;
    Australia can quite easily become a Republic and stay within the Commonwealth; the Poms won’t kick us out, where else can they send their recalcitrant nitwits like me.

    I went back to England in 2005 with the War Office and had the pleasure of going to York, Had to see the cathedral and the railway museum. The only time I’ve been to Yorkshire. did spend some time in Burnley Lancashire in ’44 as a ‘vacuee, but only there for 3 or 4 months.

    But I still love the Royal family, always have. always will. I was part of that crowd that you see in pictures of the Queens wedding and also the crowd to celebrate VE Day.. Always running up to Buckingham Palace, typical east end Cockney

    I watched the broadcast of Prince Harry’s wedding and was disappointed, I’m in two minds whether to do a post on my view,

    I know I’d upset some and have some Yankee chums who couldn’t care less, but it wasn’t and didn’t feel and seem like a Royal wedding to me; and it wasn’t HRH the Duchess of Sussex fault;

    I do wish he’d have taken Clarence instead of Sussex, there’s no history attached to Sussex, except EARL’s of Sussex, only been one Royal Duke, Plenty of Clarence’s going back to the 14th century, Even getting their heads chopped off 🙂

    1. I am delighted to have met you Brian aka Lord Beari, I enjoyed reading your articles and I thank you for following me.

      My earliest memory of the Queen is watching her coronation on a neighbour’s tiny television set. Soon after, when the queen visited Leeds, my mum took me to see her and I waved my little Union Jack. I have been a staunch royalist ever since.

      I enjoyed every moment of the wedding; however, I have to agree with you, the ceremony itself was like no other royal wedding in history.

      I understand why a nod towards the Duchess’s American background was deemed necessary, and in a way a breath of fresh air, that said, I hope the addition of our new Duchess is not the beginning of losing the very essence of our Britishness. I’m happy that royal attitudes are changing but some traditions should not.

      The inclusion of an animated Bishop, with his raised voice and undulating arms introduced a comedic element to the proceedings. Was that really their intention?

      It was funny though and I’m ashamed to admit we couldn’t stop laughing. We’ve never seen anything like it and I doubt there’s a church anywhere in England that has either!

      The expression on the faces of some of the younger royals was a joy to behold, wouldn’t you have loved to have been a fly on the on the wall during the ‘after show party’ !

      Please do write your post and I look forward to reading it. 🙂 {Edited}
