Did you stay up? Well I didn’t however, I set my alarm to go off at 1:55 AM yes, you heard right! However, my bodies alarm clock woke me up at precisely at 1:30 the perfect time for the procession of cars from Clarence house to Westminster Abby. Miss J and I had planned the night before to wear our hats and Pajamas.

We would have a tea with Homemade Raspberry Chocolate Chip Scones; Gluten Free of Course! Plus English Breakfast Tea and a ray of fresh fruit.

The Dress was Alex McQueen designed by Sarah Burton This Dress reminded me of a Modernized version of Princess Graces Wedding Gown.

 By 2:30 AM in the morning I was starving so I got out this fabulous fruit plate and a scone. I skipped the tea because I thought I might not be able to go back to sleep.

 I was so surprised how many people across the country that were awake. At one point I was receiving 30 to 50 tweets a minute very hard to keep up. But once the ceremony started I was so captivated. Around 3:30 AM My eyes started to water and I could not control myself so I went back to sleep right when Prince William and Princess Catherine went to sign there documents. Then as Graceful as Princess Catherine could be like she has been doing it for years the emerged from the church.
