“It could have been me!” – This is what many women in England, and around the world, thought when the news of the royal engagement broke in November last year. Prince William proposed to his long term girlfriend Kate Middleton and broke the hearts of many of us whose childhood dream was to grow up to be a princess.
Well, we will not be Princesses, or Queens for that matter, but we can still have a glimpse of what life could have been like. Take a Royal Wedding tour with British Tours Ltd and get an insider’s perspective on all the preparation for the big event and much more.
A royal specialist tour guide will tell you about the beginning of the couple’s love story in St Andrew’s, Scotland, and will show you the London locations that marked the 9 year long on-off relationship. Learn about Kate’s childhood, growing up as a commoner; shop in the clothing company where Kate worked after university; see the jeweler where Charles designed and bought the ring that he proposed to Diana with and which Kate is now sporting; see the night club where William and his friends hang out.
You’ve seen them on TV, you’ve seen them on many gossip magazines, and now you can see their stomping grounds and hear first-hand all the gossip surrounding the wedding. Who will design Kate’s dress? Who will cater for the ceremony? Who will pay for the wedding? Who designed the official royal wedding china – and were can you buy it? Where is the best spot to catch a glimpse of the happy couple during the procession on the 29th of April? Only an insider can give you all these information, and much more.
Last but not least, your British Tours guide will take you inside Westminster Abbey, which will host the nuptials on the 29th of April. Learn why the Abbey, as the setting of many royal weddings, coronations, and funerals, has a special meaning for the Royal family and William in particular.
