One must dress appropriately for a Royal Wedding party so ties for the gentlemen and hat/headwear for the ladies was required. Map Guy dusted off his suit and bow tie whilst I wore a black cocktail dress and accessorised with pearls and a tiara... and whilst one doesn't like to brag, I will mention my hair looked nicer than Chelsy Davy's and my headwear was a thousand times better than Princess Beatrice's... though that's not really saying much is it?
And dress codes count for babies too, so young Tricky wore a cute little shirt with a multi-coloured car tie on it that I made... I know - I even impressed myself.

Our hosts, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge(Street), went to so much effort and supplied us with copious amounts of homemade British fare; miniature mushy pea pies, miniature bacon and egg pies, chicken tikka skewers with yoghurt and coriander dip (because you can't get more British than curry), and my favourite Yorkshire puddings with melt-in-the-mouth beef and a delicious horseradish sauce.
And if that wasn't enough, for dessert we had the same chocolate biscuit cake that was served at the reception (the groom's cake), and scrumptious Eton Mess.
It was a great night and even though I'm a republican, I loved watching the pomp and ceremony of a Royal Wedding and the feeling of watching a little bit of history unfold... plus I liked laughing at the eyebrows and hats and horrid outfits while hanging out with my friends.
So here's to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge; may they have a long and happy marriage (and avoid white FIAT's and Parisian tunnels).
