Royal Wedding 2011: Trees Arrive at Westminster Abbey for Living Forest

Hemantha Abeywardena writes from London…

Flowers.gifWith just three days to go before the big day, Kate, the Princess-to-be, was spotted driving down her village in Berkshire with her sister Pippa. Both appeared to be relaxed and comfortable with paparazzi, who have been following their every single move as if they were under a contractual obligation for the troublesome ritual.

The mainstream media, meanwhile, reported that Prince William had been with his future-in-laws in Berkshire, perhaps, for the last time with them as a bachelor.

The steady arrival of big trees at Westminster Abbey, according to insiders, was part of Kate’s idea to create a ‘Living Avenue’ so that the guests could walk through it to their respective seats.

Samantha Cameron, the wife of David Cameron, said today that she was preparing cakes for a street party, which is due to take place near Downing Street. It was her husband, the prime minister, who encouraged the countrymen to have street parties on Friday.

As there is a significant threat to disrupt the event from extreme Islamists, Irish Republicans and anarchists, the police seem to be taking the event extremely seriously in order to keep them at bay.

As the British Met Office found out, the weather may not be ideal for a public event of this magnitude. There is a heavy risk of thunders and showers on Friday. So, Royalists can only hope that nature would not spoil their day.
