THE ROYAL WEDDING: WHAT I REALLY, REALLY MISSED...

My very own street party... (my hubby shot this pic..you can see his image if you look closely..the seats would have been for us..Awwww!)
The British patriotic pride...
The Great British knees-up and communal spirit...
Beautiful sights and sounds 
The endless 'William and Kate' memorabilia in shops and on Ebay..LOL!
Lots of  Royal yummy food..Tesco, Waitrose, Sainsbury, M&S...oooh! I can only imagine..
And of course, British humour.. somehow, somewhere people will be cracking you up and making you smile...Just look at the sign this lady wears, it reads.."It should have been me"....LOL!




I really, really missed but hey, there is still Harry's wedding to look forward to...(Smiles..)
Back on the Lagos front, I'm sooo looking forward to the Kinabuti Elite Fashion Evening later tonight.. Have a fabulous saturday people...

It is reported that the cake took 5-weeks to create..here finishing touches were being done just before the recption


And then William ordered this Chocolate Biscuit Cake created especially for the Royal Wedding by
British Biscuit gaint, McVities

The couple commissioned this biscuit cake as an alternative to the grand main cake by Fiona Cairns. It is was apparently enjoyed by William as a young Prince and has remained a favourite by british biscuit manufacturer, McVities

Prince William and Catherine Middleton wrote their own prayer:
God our Father, we thank you for our families; for the love that we share and for the joy of our marriage.
In the busyness of each day keep our eyes fixed on what is real and important in life and help us to be generous with our time and love and energy.
Strengthened by our union help us to serve and comfort those who suffer. We ask this in the Spirit of Jesus Christ. Amen.
