|Dear Kathleen, thank you for your comments on the Royal couple although obviously I did get a bit of flak from some Americans who could not understand what it meant to our little Nation.
The soup was demolished by the children and the bread rolls, although I cannot state if all of it was eaten by the children at the party. I fear the adults dipped in as well!
For some reason everyone likes Homemade tomato soup and rolls, or cheese sandwiches to go with it.
The elderly lady who lives across the road was especially busy and had made twenty party size pork pies, that were totally eaten in next to no time.
Jelly and ice cream and trifles for the children, plus my wife's carrot cake and chocolate cake, which as you can imagine did not last long either.
Then some of them wanted Dinner as well! The whole of the UK partied into the early hours, and there is many hangovers! Oh dear self inflicted injury I am afraid, no sympathy at all.
A lot of people have said that the brides dress was too plain. I do not know about fashion but we all though it looked lovely! After all it was the brides day and she chose it!
I wished to smack a dress designer who did not get any Royal commissions for the Wedding, as he criticized the flowers by saying they were not the right color or modern enough.
I disagree as the bride picked her bouquet of lily of the valley and sweet William. Good girl stood up to him and told him she picked them as she loves the smell of lilly of the valley and sweet William because of her new Husband.
He also stated he did not like the Queens outfit, well he will get no work. Sour grapes I am afraid.
Regards from a very Happy England.
