Well don't these two just look ecstatic about the whole thing Billgrin....petersmile
Bill Phillips: Thrilled, but they have seen it all so many times

They can hardly control themselves.

Chad is so excited he's forgotten to post a picture today
Bill Phillips: He probably thinks it is Sunday

Yes, it must have been very windy as we already saw yesterday - and the ladies had to hold fast their fascinators during the Royal Wedding, too! But the wind might have driven away the threatening rainy clouds! The saints themselves here seem to be very stoic, they saw some bigger events in the course of their centuries. They don't smile whereas Kate was very often smiling (honestly, I had expected some tears running down her cheeks). I like this picture very much!
Bill Phillips: Thank you Philine. They have indeed seen much over the centuries and are not impressed by a bit of frivolous bunting

Yes I can see the hysteria reaching a old time high here smile
Bill Phillips: The whole place was jumping Scarlet
I didn't watch the wedding Bill. On Friday we had a meeting of the old boys from the salt works, and my how we laughed over the things we used to get up to in the old days
Bill Phillips: I managed to avoid it in the company of three shutterchancers

"We are not amused". I wonder if those flags where made in China?
Bill Phillips: Almost certainly Alan along with a lot of other souvenir junk

"In 1649, the church became a temporary prison for 340 rebel Cromwell soldiers, known as the Levellers, three of whom were executed in the churchyard" - OMG, what an event that might not be beaten by any other later 'spectacle'!
Bill Phillips: Well I didn't know that. Executing people in a churchyard seems a particularly unpleasant thing to do.
The sense of excitement you have managed to capture here is, well, what can I say, not very riveting!
Bill Phillips: Rivetless Brian would sum it up
Indeed they do look underwhelmed by the occasion.
Bill Phillips: Well they have seen it all before Les

Yes...this crowd can barely contain themselves.
Bill Phillips: I nearly fell asleep taking the picture Ray
Hysteria, really, in the English countryside? Love how you capture these historic two looking mournfully down on the proceedings...with a touch of distain, one wonders? lol
Bill Phillips: There is hysteria and then there is true English hysteria. Understated quiet hysteria. Jolly good show and all that.
They look pretty stone-faced to me!
Bill Phillips: Well they would really

Better than my image by at least 100yards of bunting
Bill Phillips: Sometimes less is more Richard
At least the two on the day were closer than this! smile
Bill Phillips: They seem a nice young couple.
Probably the only two in Burford without an invitation to the Abbey.
Bill Phillips: Hahaha. Lucky them
Glad I was out of the country for this, not that it was a complete escape from news coverage.
Bill Phillips: I managed to miss 99.9% of it
