Royal Wedding fever is griping the Commonwealth.
Royal wedding fever is everywhere you look, people are hosting high tea ‘tea parties’, dress-like-a-royal parties, and British themed dinner parties in their living rooms while waiting for the much-anticipated arrival of the princess-to-be at 11am today (London time).
Hundreds of fans are have been camped out alongside the procession route for days waiting for a glimpse of the wedding procession. Hawkers are selling everything from coins, cups, tea trays, ashtrays, shot glasses, flags, thimbles, key rings, even ‘kiss me Kate’ beer and even royal wedding sick bags.
Souvenir purchases will add to the expected $1 billion tourism and retail boost.
For the first time ever, The British Monarchy is embracing the internet and social media, with the wedding to be streamed live on its own YouTube channel, and covered through its Facebook page, Twitter, Flickr album, and official website.
