Half the 416expat team really wanted to get up early and to the Mall to watch the wedding firsthand (don’t act like you don’t know what wedding I’m talking about). The other half of our dynamic duo wanted to run as far as possible in the opposite direction. In the end we did reach a compromise.
We didn’t quite make it to the Mall (not for lack of trying – they had the area locked down by the time we got there) but instead went to Hyde Park and watched the proceedings on massive screens with many many other folks.
After the ceremony we beat it out of the West End to hang out in the East End, in Shoreditch‘s Queen of Hoxton. We spent the rest of the day enjoying the festivities with a jug of Pimms and some good friends, surrounded by hipsters in low-irony mode.
All in all it was a fabulous day with great weather. One of us (not mrs416expat) actually admitted that today was one of their favourite days in London. How cool is that?
