(England Twitter)-Napans have gone mad — royally mad, that is.
The UK royal wedding may be 5,000 miles and eight time zones away, but that won’t stop a number of locals from celebrating the nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton during the wee hours Friday morning.
Come early Friday morning, Cave said she’ll be watching the event live on TV. On Friday night, she’ll dish up traditional English tea food like scones and tea sandwiches, “and of course, a wedding cake,” she said.
Cave isn’t the only Napan to get royal wedding fever.
“I have been in the countdown phase since the announcement of the royal engagement and the wedding date,” Jeanne Doty of Napa said.
Doty said she’s taking Friday off from work to be able to fully immerse herself in the royal wedding experience. She’s even purchased a Kate Middleton faux sapphire ring to wear Friday, along with a royal blue outfit and tiara.
UK royals fascinate some Americans?
“It’s something Britain has that is unique,” Rock said. “It’s pageantry carried on through history. It’s special.”
And with the death of Princess Diana, “I think everyone has a soft spot for William and Harry,” she said.
Terry Bremer Allison is married to John Allison, a retired British Army officer, who also happens to be the president of the St. Andrew’s Society of San Francisco. That means the Allisons are invited to a real royal wedding party hosted by the British Consul General at the Mark Hopkins Hotel in San Francisco.
“I’m quite excited about this,” Allison said. “I remember being a teenager and watching Princess Anne and thinking, 'Wouldn’t it be nice to ride horses and wear a tiara?',” she said.
“It’s very romantic. I think part of it is the princess syndrome. The fairy-tale aspect.”
She may not have a tiara, but Bremer Allison said her husband ordered her a William and Kate commemorative wedding mug.
