  1. Of course this is filling the news here in the states--I am in awe of how the smallest of detail has been thought of and how everything is calculated to the very minute. I'm sure that unlike most weddings it will be on right on time, and I will get up early and will be watching from here in Virginia!

  2. I spotted your comment over on Bee's post about her bookshelf. I had to come and meet you. Me, too. Me, too. I have piles and piles of books. Just wanted to say hello.

  3. Thankyou....for even more news of the excitment direct from the "front"! What a great day, Kate seems an extraordinary match. It'll be fun to watch!!

  4. I remember seeing the wedding of Princess Diana to Prince Charles as a young girl - we were all glued to the television! Thanks for the "inside scoop"!

  5. I don't care about her wedding at all, but I can't say I'm not worried/nervous for her as well.

  6. My heart began to beat faster just reading this schedule. Royal weddings are wonderful things, aren't they? I'll be in Los Angeles that day, and I'll be the one getting up in the middle of the bloomin' night for this!!!

  7. Myself and my daughter have the champagne and popcorn lined up. We want to wish her very, very well - such a brave woman.

  8. The wedding fever is certainly mounting Jeanne....xv

  9. Thank you so much for this detailed information Jeanne - am so excited! It is being covered here in Oz - it will be our Friday evening and so I can now work out all the timings! Poor girl she must be very nervous - no wonder she has lost weight. XX
