Royal Wedding day preparations

I went home on Thursday 28 April the long way round – via Green Park, Buckingham Palace and Westminster. Things were starting to warm up with most of the press in place and people starting to set up camp along the route. I was looking forward to watching at home on the big screen with the Stoke Village Street Party on Sunday 1 May.
