    I missed it as I was in meetings all day, but am now playing catch-up on the re-runs. Did you watch it on your IPad. :)

    Didn't watch it.

    But boy, it is everywhere in the news. Even the German radio stations couldn't stop talking about it. I got so annoyed that I shut off the radio.

    Fair play, at least in the UK we had an official day off work :)


    My wife and I watched the opening ceremonies live on the ipad2 whilst still in bed this morning.

    The BBC news app and iplayer apps are pretty useful at times.

    FWIW, I am a royalist, I think they are wonderful for the country but royal weddings, oh so boring! Add to that the Beckhams and various other working class upper class enjoying the last bastions of the class system while the adoring public look on from a distance.

    But really, I think the two of them are fantastic.......just.......not wanting to watch it.

    I heard it on the radio, she was dressed all black with a tall hat, wasn't she.

    Even the German radio stations mentioned how unfitting her appearance was :D

    In all fairness, they said that when she was born!

    Thank you! I like David but she always seems to look as if she's thinking, Can the cameras see me, is this my good side, Aaahhgg! Can't stand the woman, without him, she would be a nobody. Do you get the feeling I don't like her?

    It kinda sounds like you might have a secret crush on her.

    It was prime time here, the ceremony proper started at 7:00 PM, and was on all channels. I had no choice but to lie back and think of England:D.

    Seeing Westminister Abbey fully lit, in HD and from so many angles was quite spectacular. It's usually pretty gloomy if you actually visit it.

    The happy couple looked, well, happy.

    Secret crush! Noooooo! Skinny, boney, ugly, far more beautiful women, for eg. Kate, Duchess of Cambridge. She looked beautiful and so calm, no mistakes, no shaking. I loved Prince Harrys cheeky look in the abbey and I agree the abbey looked gorgeous.
