The Royal Wedding
Like many people I spent this day watching TV and admiring the wedding dress of Kate. This wedding attracted people from all over the world and all of them were in a happy mood. Some people came as early as Tuesday and I heard that they put up tents near Westminster Abbey. Some places in London looked like campsites. Others slept on the pavement. Fortunately it didn't rain. This event is great for the unity of a nation. Tomorrow we are going to have our typically Dutch party: we will celebrate the Queen's Birthday. Even though her birthday is on 31st January, we celebrate it on 30th April, as this was her mother's birthday.We call it Queen's Day. This day is more agreeable than 31st January for then we cannot spend our day outside.
People spent the night on the pavement.
But they were rewarded with the scene on the balcony!
