Little has been heard about any major details of the Royal Wedding so far, as I looked at my Twitter page yesterday afternoon all was revealed. Yes, I follow Clarence House on Twitter. I expected to read about the details of the wedding in the paper, but there it was, on my Twitter feed. Fabulous. I later read an article on the day in today’s Telegraph.
After this very modern disclosure I can finally (excitedly) write about the proceedings! The 11am service on the 29th April will take place in Westminster Abbey. Another modern touch, Kate, breaking centuries of tradition, will be arriving by car as opposed to ceremonial coach. This will undoubtedly have angered many and it would have been lovely to see the bride and her father Michael in the coach. Though it may be for security reasons and if the couple want their day to be a low key, modern event then so be it.
Kate and her father will travel to the service starting at either Buckingham Palace, St James’s Palace or Clarence House. The car will then travel pass landmarks such as The Mall, Horse Guards Parade Whitehall and Parliament Square. After the ceremony the married couple will travel by horse and carriage through London so the public can get a glimpse!
The Queen will then give a reception at Buckingham Palace with several hundred guests, later on that night The Prince of Wales will hold dinner and dancing. It’ll be a big day for Kate and William and all of Britain.
The announcements on Twitter are a testament to the impact of social networking today!
