Up until today I have managed to stay away from this Royal Wedding frenzy. Not because I have anything against it, but simply because I don’t see why it should matter to me – or anyone really – who is invited for the big day or the songs chosen for the ceremony or the details about the bride’s dress.
But, today, after waking up to so many different posts on Facebook regarding the wedding, I decided to investigate how the British nationals that live here in the UAE (approximately 100,000) celebrated the Royal Wedding.
While people in
took the streets to participate in William and Kate’s, ooops, I mean, Catherine’s nuptials, people in the UAE had several options to choose from. Some watched the entire thing at home, with friends and lots of free flowing drinks. Others headed down to venues that embraced the wedding fever and hosted lavish parties and screenings to celebrate the big day. Dressed up or dressed down (as you will see in some of the below images), people definitely did not miss out on the action in London ! London
