Who doesn’t love a wedding? It was fun watching Prince William marry Kate Middleton, who looked beautiful in an elegant dress that was both traditional and modern. London looked great too, pictures from every imaginable angle, on a sunny Spring day. It took me back to the time when I took my grandchildren, first Julia and a few years later her brother Tony, for a visit. We were there! At Buckingham Palace, at Hyde Park, at Westminster Abbey, along the parade route. Wonderful memories. Julia loved Covent Gardens and Tony loved the theatre, and the new Tate Gallery. We stayed in Bloomsbury. They both loved the British Museum. Julia bought some crystals and Tony bought one of those great blue floppy top hats with the flag of Great Britain on it. And who doesn’t love pageantry, tradition and ceremony? Maybe I'm just a romantic, but I thought it was great. Some sunshine on our sometimes gloomy political and economic landscape.
