WEDDING WATCH: The real party (then, Harry’s turn)
Question of the Day
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (aka Wills and Kate) have emerged from Westminster Abbey to the ringing of wedding bells, a roar of cheers and a throng of news photographers. They then hopped into their open carriage for their ride around the neighborhood.
And off they go.
One of the latest hymns sung at the wedding, “Jerusalem” (“And did those feet, in ancient times …”) is the closest thing to a national hymn for the English. Among those outside Britain, it might be more likely to evoke a certain Monty Python episode _ the one where a bed salesman keeps singing the hymn as a couple of newlyweds, still dressed as bride and groom, try to make a purchase.
A versatile hymn indeed.
Need a break from all this ceremony? If you’re in Britain, here’s a look at what’s showing on some of the channels that aren’t airing live wedding coverage:
