Street Notes – TODAY, AT LAST!!!

I am speechless. There are no words to describe the atmosphere.

We have risen and within the next two hours, we will begin standing to watch THE MAIN EVENT!!!

I wonder how Kate slept? Does she know her new in-laws were partying the night away? They buzzed by in Range Rovers for hours…and we caught glimpses of Princess Royal Anne, husband Capt Tim, Prince Harry, Camilla.

And her son, Peter Phillips.

Prime Minister David Cameron was right across the street but we missed the man of the hour, Prince William, apparently doing a walk-about outside Clarence House.

We slept fairly good, considering the circumstances. But I know I will never complain again when room service is late!

We  now need  to start our final preparations of breaking down Camp Royale.

Let the spectacular show begin!

    Great reporting Queen Jane Ann, can’t wait to see your pictures! A picture of you & Julie with your “San Diego HI!” sign was on the front page of the Union Tribune [below the fold] this morning! What a hoot. So, have your feet touched the ground yet? You sound “other worldly”!
    I slept soundly through the night, but did record the Royal Event. I’ll have to watch it & see if I can spy you guys, now that I know where to look for you. Enjoy the rest of your adventure & take lots more pictures.
