Many people opted for a short break or a last minute hotel deal over the double bank holiday weekend. But where ever you went you could not escape that on the 29th of April 2011 Prince William married Kate Middleton in London’s Westminster Abbey. The fairytale day started with the arrival of many guests including Sir Elton John and his partner as well as David and Victoria Beckham before the guests of honour. Hotels in London were set to burst as the truly perfect day was shared by over 1 million well-wishers lining the streets of London, as well as the 24 million people in the UK and an estimated 2 billion worldwide who tuned in to see the happy couple.
In the run up to the wedding a lot of talk followed who exactly would design Kate’s dress and on the day no one was disappointed. The stunning dress, designed by Sarah Burton, assistant of late designer Alexander McQueen is now the talk of the wedding dress world. Many dress makers have already recreated the look just hours after it was revealed!
Rumour has it that the original dress will be placed on display for members of the public to see it in its full beauty. (Yey!) Kensington Palace and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London are possibilities to showcase this fantastic British design which I am sure will have hundreds of people queuing up to see it. The new Duchess of Cambridge also followed tradition and left her bouquet at Westminster Abbey on the grave of the unknown warrior, which has already seen thousands of people visiting it.
So as the biggest event to hit London this year has now drawn to a close we have to start preparing ourselves for next years 2012 Olympics and the Queens Diamond Jubilee!
How did you spend the big day?
