One of the kisses on the balcony
It was a lovely wedding - I can't get over how beautiful Catherine looked, the gorgeous dress, and all the pageantry and pomp were just wonderful. This is Britain at its best, surely. The crowds in London were loving it all, and we had the best views on the tv at home, from the comfort of our armchairs. Catherine is not over the top; she strikes me as very dignified, demure and reserved, so she should fit in well with the Royal Family. I thought her dress had echoes of the Queen's dress from 1947 with all that lace - very elegant.
These occasions always make me want to go and dig out a Royal Family tree so that I can work out who everyone is and how they are all related. I'm sure that Princess Alexandra is probably the oldest royal princess nowadays, and I think I heard someone say something today (one of the commentators) about the Queen being pleased now that her eldest grandson is married, but I thought that her eldest grandson was the Princess Royal's son, Peter Philips, who married the Canadian Autumn Kelly a while back........these are the sorts of things I think of and have to go and Google to satisfy my curiosity!
This afternoon I have been sorting out the 11am service on Sunday - the secondary readings for the day are all about the Temple, so I have constructed a service about the Temple and how God dwells in us now, according to the reading from Corinthians which is part of the service. I am going to email it all over to a mentor friend tonight and get the go-ahead on it all........
