I am team ML!!!! Be nice now Kate, be nice lol!!!
Yes, but as it turned out, I was a little disappointed–didn’t quite live up to my expectations. Since it was an event of my youth, Charles and Diana’s wedding is bathed in golden glow of nostalgia. So I guess the main takeaway for me is that nothing can ever compete with nostalgia…
I thought I would be moved but didn’t feel any goosebumps, didn’t shed any tears, and found the balcony kiss anticlimactic.
Whereas Kate Allison enjoyed it more than she’d anticipated. And our California-based colleague, Anthony Windram, who was born and raised in the UK — but was only a toddler in 1981 — found it all a bit silly, though he did end up watching the entire thing (having said he would join us for just one hour). He also produced a stream of highly entertaining, if a bit irreverent, tweets.
Do stay tuned for our selection of top tweets from the event, to be posted on Tuesday if all goes according to plan.
