And boy, did Blighty have a good knees up! Enjoying a day of love and tradition, people all over the world tuned in to watch Kate walk down the aisle in THAT dress and there were over hundreds of official street parties up and down Britain.
My celebrations consisted of up early with my cousins and a boiled egg and soldiers for brekkie, and then enjoying a jug of Pimms by 11 o'clock! It was my last day of staying in London after being here for a month's magazine work experience and what a way to end my stay! Exhausted from my month of living as a true Londoner, I decided to avoid the crowds at The Mall and enjoy it on the TV.

Pimms No 1
Squeeze of lemon
Extra fruit: blueberries and raspberries
*Mix thoroughly and enjoy*
After a lot of "ooohing" and "aaaahing" and a little blubbing(!) we had pork belly on the BBQ, with stuffed garlic mushrooms and courgettes. I also put together some bruchetta for starters and a wonderful pudding which we enjoyed outside just as the sun decided to make an appearance.

I love these Emma Bridgewater designs
So maybe I'm not surprised that we got through a whole bottle of Pimms by 3pm! Next on the list was the delightfully curious Hendricks Gin from Scotland.
|Enjoy with a slice of cucumber|

So raise a glass of your favourite British tipple to the happy couple,
and just for fun....
