Rowena Jackson Retirement Village William and Kate's Royal Wedding

The World went crazy and so did the residents and some staff. For some staff they were amazed at the eagerness the resident’s absorbed royal trivia. Knowledge was shared and titbits told of stories of past royal weddings, engagements and babies. Did you know the Queen only accepted Prince Phillip's proposal on the third asking?

A close study of past wedding dresses was necessary as well as trying to guess what THE DRESS would be like. As the wedding was on very late we all celebrated the wedding the afternoon before it happened. Some baked sconces so they could have a high English afternoon tea while others enjoyed pinwheel sandwiches and cream cakes while watching Diana and Charles’s Wedding. Some even watched a very old black and white copy of the Queen's Coronation and Wedding.

A fun day and of course they all got to see the real wedding later in the weekend and topic of discussion on Monday was of course the dress and the kiss!
