Royal Wedding Celebrations

Since not everyone can be in London to watch the marriage of Kate Middleton and Prince William, many restaurants and pubs are hosting viewing parties. While diners stare at the TV screen to ogle Kate’s sure-to-be-gorgeous wedding dress, they can sample British specialties served in honor of the royal couple. Although the wedding starts at 4 a.m. EST, many restaurants will offer their British specials later in the day.
