Royal Wedding Watch Party
There was so much excitement in the air at 5.15am as I entered the doors of the Indian Hills Country Club. Today, Saturday, May 19th, was the day we at the British American Business Council had been planning since the Engagement of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle. It was our Royal Wedding Watch Party. The big screen was already up and showing live coverage from Windsor of all the guests arriving at St George’s Chapel.
The staff at Indian Hills Country Club were busy setting up, getting ready for our 75 guests, who would arrive at 5.45am.
Our guests dressed in wedding attire. Ladies wore hats, men wore suits, tuxedos and tailcoats. We brought St George’s Chapel to a Country Club in Georgia. Our guest list included people of all nationalities, excited to witness a union between our British Prince to an American Actress. This was truly a unique and historic experience.
“It’s been wonderful. A great occasion. Very well put on. Everything was just perfect,” said one guest from South Africa.
Our guests enjoyed a traditional British Fare that was a combination of a Breakfast and Afternoon Tea. Yes, we had sausages, eggs and baked beans alongside cucumber sandwiches and scones.
To make this event a truly Royal experience, we served lemon cake with elderflower icing, the same flavors as the Royal cake.
“I absolutely had a wonderful time and met some very cool people. It was a great turnout,” said another guest.
To add to the Britishness, our Bagpiper, who was dressed in a full Scottish outfit, entertained our guests with some traditional sounds from the Highlands.
This was a very successful BABC event. A uniquely British occasion, where we offered our guests a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Something they will never forget.
