Best wishes to the happy couple - I migliori auguri alla coppia felice.
It will be no surprise to those that know me that I have spent most of today glued to the television, watching The Royal Wedding of Prince William, now The Duke of Cambridge to Catherine Middleton.
A wonderful and emotional occasion for which I decided to make my own memento of a video of still shots of the day. From the arrival of The Queen at Westminster Abbey, right through the ceremony, the landau ride, to the balcony kiss and then the newly weds leaving Buckingham Palace for Clarence House in the open top Aston Martin.
As I feel proud to be British today I decided it was appropriate to share, thanks to Sky News for the coverage of the event today which we were able to watch here in Italy.
It was the historic fairy tale wedding that was expected, the forecast rain stayed away, the sun shone, London was full with hundreds of thousands of tourists and billions of people around the world were able to watch the live coverage.
In a stunning bridal gown with lace applique floral detail and a 2.70 metre train, which was designed by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen, Catherine walked up the red carpeted aisle with her father, as a commoner. Leaving Westminster Abbey less than an hour and a half later with her husband at her side the former Catherine Middleton became HRH the Duchess of Cambridge.
I will let my little slide show tell the rest of the wedding story and just say “Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge”.
Photos were all taken by myself but from the television courtesy of Sky News coverage.
