Mint Stamp Sheet Commemorates 2011 Royal Wedding
The stamps picture Prince William and Catherine Middleton on their wedding day.
The Royal wedding took place on April 29, 2011. The ceremony began at 11:00 in the morning. Kate wowed everyone with a sleek Alexander McQueen dress designed by famed British designer Sarah Burton. The sleek, satin dress was topped with delicate lace roses, thistles, daffodils, and shamrocks crafted in the traditional Carrickmacross technique.
When Kate arrived at the altar, William lovingly whispered, “You look beautiful.” Two choirs, an orchestra, and a fanfare ensemble accompanied the traditional British ceremony. The sermon ended with a prayer composed by the happy couple. While William did not receive a ring, he gave Kate one made from Welsh gold.
After the newly named Duke and Duchess of Cambridge left the church, they went to a lunchtime reception at Buckingham Palace hosted by the Queen. Here, they shared the traditional balcony kiss as members of William’s Search and Rescue Force flew overhead. In the evening, a dinner was hosted by Prince Charles, followed by a late-night dance party.
