Royal Wedding Street Party Photos: Rookhope, Lavenham, Marple And Castleton
DID you got to street party to celebrate Prince William’s marriage to Kate Middelton? Did you stock up on sausage rolls (the Queen’s favourite), Quaich Trophy cocktails (Prince Harry’s tipple du jour) and ciggies (for Camilla)? Did you stick a Sarah Ferguson look-alike (or the actual creature) on a stool as Lot 1 in a charity auction her for Royal access and more?
Anorak’s photographers toured the country. They saw the duck races in Bucklebury (photos). They met Jean Roddam, Betty Bowman and Maureen Wall in Rookhope, County Durham – was this the most remote street party in England?
They looked on as Prime Minister David Cameron and Samantha worked the egg sandwiches and red jelly from paper plates and drank orange squash and bitter lemon from paper cups, at the Downing Street Party; made it to Foxeath and picture perfect Lavenham Suffolk; spoke to the brides on Thomas Street, Manchester; bounced in Castleton, North Yorkshire; took the waters at Wells-next-the-sea in Norfolk; and ended up at the country’s second biggest street party (after this one) in Marple, Cheshire.
All good stuff. If you went to one of those dos, you might well be in the gallery:
