A Royal Celebration!
April 29, 2011
Let the celebrations begin!
This morning (at about 5am here in Kansas City) was the wedding of Britain's Prince William and Kate Middleton, a very proper affair that took place at Westminster Abbey.
For scores of Kansas City residents such as myself, there was no other place to watch this royal event but at the watch party down at our Union Station. Apparently, around a thousand showed up, donning tiaras and fabulous hats to watch it on a movie-sized screen in one of the foyers.
The extra special treat was, of course, the traveling exhibit "Diana, a Celebration" which is currently showing at Union Station until June 12th. Featuring many photos, videos, and outfits from Princess Diana's life, it is an amazing treat for anyone who has royal wedding fever.
So put on your tiara or top hat, and go take a look! And for those of you who've already been, you might check out our system's books on the newly wedded couple. Cheerio!
