I love occasions such as this, which unite Britain, (and the rest of the world for that matter, the USA seems to be particularly excited) thousands will attend street parties, marvel at the precession and many will watch the action on big screens in Hyde Park.

And while we ponder over whether our invite was lost in the post, others have the trickier task of finding an outfit suitable for a royal wedding! My guide on how to look royally fabulous!1) The Outfit:The trick is to look smart and elegant, but still with a fashionable edge.
