I didn't get to see the Royal Wedding yesterday - my excuse, I had an all day Business Systems Analysis class. However, during the 11.00 morning break I did go to the Staff Room for tea where the wedding was being watched and managed to see the moment when Kate stepped out of the car. Lots of "Oooohs" and "Aaaahs" from all the many ladies (and just two men) who were watching in the Staff Room.

My daughter and her friends watched the whole thing, and my Mum today told me she spent the day watching all the goings-on. They loved the ceremony and pageantry of it all. I did see some of the highlights on the News and there's now doubt that the British know how to put on a show. I'm sure many people think back to their own wedding day on occasions such as this. The big difference of course is that William and Kate have to share their big day with the whole world, while the rest of us make do with family and friends. They seem like a sensible couple who have not rushed into things and I wish them well - they'd be welcomed by me if they ever came to Ireland.
Over dinner last night with my daughter Claire when not surprisingly the wedding was the main topic of discussion, she referred to the wedding as the "World Cup for Girls" - now I know how important it was to her and all the "Girls" of the world!
