I then walked over to Trafalgar Square to watch the ceremony on a big screen. It was incredibly busy and the nearest I could get to was around the corner outside the National Portrait Gallery. (See my view in Trafalgar Square.)
From here I walked to Hyde Park as this was where the biggest party was planned with two large screens and refreshments and facilities for hundreds of thousands of people. It was busy but the atmosphere was outstanding - especially when the couple appeared on the Buckingham Palace balcony for the kiss!
The Battle of Britain flypast went right over our heads in Hyde Park and signified the end of the official ceremony and time for the parties to all start. In Hyde Park there was a live band who got us all up and dancing and it was a fun, friendly and immensely happy place to be. After some boogieing, I met friends in a pub in Notting Hill and enjoyed a Pimm's celebration while watching the ceremony on one friend's iPad.
It was a wonderful day and considering how cynical we can be, and how apathetic the nation seemed to be in the run up to the wedding, on the day we showed the world how to celebrate. Everyone felt the couple looked so in love it made us all feel warm inside, as did the sunshine that appeared after the kiss. My friend Dylan got some amazing photos along Whitehall and I love this photo by Ray Wise of Catherine smiling at him. London Travel Blog | Join me on Facebook | Follow me on Twitter
