arrivals

I have seen Andrew Parker Bowles,  Lord Spencer, his four children, and fiancee!  The Beckhams, Mr. Bean, and Ben Fogle, who after the ceremony goes back to reporting for NBC  ... for those us watching on BBC America, there is a few second delay as I learned while talking to a friend in England.

Just saw Lady Edwina and Dan Snow.  The former Lady Edwina Grosvenor is the second daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Westminster. The Duchess is William's godmother.  Also saw Lady Tamara.

BBC  it's not Princess Lalla Salma of Thailand, but of Morocco - and you did not recognize Alexander and Katherine of Serbia ...  grrrrr

Among the foreign royal cousins,  the Landgrave of Hesse,  Prince and Princess Max of Baden,  Princess Margarita of Baden, the Prince and Princess of Hohenlohe-Langenburg, Princess Cecile of Hohenlohe-Langenburg and Princess Xenia of Hohenlohe-Langenburg and Max Soltmann.

The Prince and Princess of Oettingen-Spielberg, friends of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, were also at the Abbey.

BBC distinctly mentioned "the Serbian royals"... That's something.

Marlene,
So the Landgrave of Hesse but none of Philipp's Hesse nieces or nephews. Did you see any? Maybe I missed them. Bea

Tut tut ;-) Princess Karl of Hesse (Yvonne). Surprised others weren't there - the Ludwigs of Baden for example.
Art confirmed that Count Hans Veit was not there as I thought he wasn't too.
The Aga Khan was also there.
