Your invitation must be stuck to the back of mine, in the depths of some postie's sack. No doubt they'll be discovered lost in a cave in a few thousand years when a lonely goatherd searches for something to light his campfire and finds them behind a crevice, lurking like tiny Dead Sea Scrolls. In the meantime... looks like the weather will be nice. smile

Well yes there is that. Someone suggested that in my case I am so recognisable that a written invite would not be needed...
Everyone enjoy it anyway.

It is the crown that gives you away, Ren. smile

I am not going, either. I will be in Mexico having a beer with Thomas Markle.

I cannot even begin to understand what Meghan's mother must be feeling, she isn't used to (literally) the eyes of the world being on her. I really feel for her, I know that I would absolutely go to pieces in her situation, most likely have a panic attack and pass out.

I do hope the day goes well for them, and that they have a successful and happy marriage.

In fact Meghan's Mum was a star I think. So sweet looking, so proud and such a lady.
I thought it was a beautiful perfect wedding in every way.

Well done that mum, she did brilliantly.

I think that some of the congregation we bemused at Bishop Michael, I personally felt that he went on for too long, but that is just me.

Thank goodness it went off without a hitch and the weather was wonderful.

I loved Meghan’s dress and the gospel choir singing “Stand by Me.” I was a little disappointed, though that there weren’t a lot of crazy hats and fascinators. Prince Andrew’s daughters, especially, were downright bland!

I suspect the two girls toned it down as they had so much stick last time over their choice of headgear, I don't care for them but they really can't win.

One thing that struck me was Victoria Beckham, what a misery! I didn't see her smile once.

I think it was beautiful. Wasn't expecting to be able to view all of it.

In a few words "They Did it Their Way"

I noticed the same thing about Victoria Beckham and remembered she was the same at William and Kate’s wedding. Does that woman ever smile?

Sadly Victoria Beckham seems to think she is Royalty! As a fashion designer she should also know it is bad taste to wear dark colours to a wedding, as it is to wear all white.

You are all playing into the hands of Posh Spice. She craves attention. Dont give it!
I just loved every minute . I didnt cry but find I am crying a bit during the reruns. The poise of that lovely Mum was just something. I had a little snivel at Harry's tears, several bits were so moving.
