Over 35,000 people turned out in Nottingham today to greet the Queen, Kate and William. I am really regretting not taking Miss N (9) out of school for a couple of hours into town so we got our own slice of history. Miss A (3) is too young really to have appreciated it.
To be honest it had not even crossed my mind to do it. It wasn’t until I was chatting at school pick-up that I realised that lots of parents had done this. The more we spoke about it, more I had a feeling of regret.
I will however share with you some really fantastic photographs that Tall Dad’s cousin once removed ( I had to google that) the gorgeous Grace Vernon took, at The Market Square today.
I love this image, with the reflections of the banners on the claret State Car. The mascot is St George slaying the dragon.
My absolute favourite has to be this one, a laughing HRH with Catherine the Duchess of Cambridge. Prince William is there too, sat opposite them….I wonder what they were laughing about?
A prince in the making?
Apparently the Queen said the Council House was like Buckingham Palace.
Kate looked gorgeous in her M Missoni tweed coat dress, which she had worn to a previous engagement – I love that she has worn it before! She also was wearing Princess Diana’s blue diamond sapphire earrings.
It must have been an amazing morning. Thank you so much to Grace for letting me share these photographs, I’m only a little jealous
