The Royal Wedding Website

It is rather curious I think when the 'establishment', as we know it in the UK, decides to adopt modern times, and it is certainly interesting observing.
It is, of course, a very closed and controlled world, for obvious reasons, and creating this sort of PR tool gives us a glimpse into a very public wedding for a very private family and it is delightful to see the Royal family PR machine attempting to make the Royal Wedding friendly and up-to-date by embracing modern times with the launch of an official wedding website, twitter and facebook page.
This allows us to watch the details emerge that they choose to promote, as we lead up to the big day, tempting us with snippets of this very exciting and prestigious wedding.
Having been on the Twitter page tonight, I was impressed with the charities they support, definitely worth taking a look at.
This has made me put my thinking cap on, that it would be appropriate to show our support to these charities during and after this event with perhaps some fundraising events linked to the Royal Wedding whilst we all celebrate and watch this historical wedding of the UK's future king.
We are planning a 'street party', albeit that name does not quite sum it up, here in our charming corner of Elviria, in Marbella, and I would now love to combine our party/wedding watching with supporting charities the Royal Family have chosen to include for their wedding and join them in raising money for these very worthwhile causes.
A thought now in progress and I do think if anyone else, which I am sure there are, are also thinking about holding a wedding watching party, they should also consider the fact they would be able to raise money for these very worthwhile charities as well.

That is a wonderful idea! Hope many others pick up on this for their chosen charity...amidst the countdown to THE April wedding!
