The Royal Wedding at the palace

Not THE palace, just a palace — Blenheim, which is a few miles outside of Oxford.  There was supposed to be a big screen set up to view the wedding and then jousting in the afternoon, so we thought it would be fun.  Unfortunately, the Brit’s version of big screen differs from most, so we couldn’t see or hear (we did catch the highlights later that day) and it was cold and windy so we didn’t stay for the joust.  Oh, well.

We did convert our ticket to an annual pass, so we are planning on heading back out to the palace and it’s gorgeous grounds on Tuesday to explore some more.

The girls still had fun.

And the setting is stunning

And horses.

Overall a fun morning, even if we didn’t get to see Wills and Kate exactly as we had imagined.
