Celebrating the wedding worldwide

iReporter Jemma Nyagah watched the wedding with friends and family in Nairobi, Kenya.

 

The wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton was a truly global event, so it only makes sense that iReporters around the world celebrated the big day together.

 

As people tuned in to watch the royal affair, CNN iReport issued a series of fun quick-fire challenges. First off, we asked iReporters to show us what they were serving to compliment the event. Kim DeGiulio of Tempe, Arizona, got up bright and early to watch the wedding with an English-style breakfast of eggs, beans, toast and tea. And Molly Fassbender and Rachel Fischer enjoyed a meal of scones and clotted cream while celebrating in Munich, Germany.

 

When it came to hats, iReporters didn't disappoint. Ethel Forward donned a red-white-and-blue bonnet in Geneva on the Lake, Ohio, and Angie Sprague of Atlanta, Georgia, created a “last-minute fascinator” using straws, tinsel and tissue paper.

 

And the fun didn’t stop there. We also asked the community to recreate the kiss, rate the wedding (Shari Atukorala gave it a 10 out of 10) and give us a glimpse of their viewing parties.

 

CNN.com will replay the royal affair at noon ET, so it’s not too late to join in! Become a fan of The Royal Wedding on CNN on Facebook or follow us on Twitter to see all of the challenges. We can’t wait to celebrate with you!

The British woyuld have been told immediately about Bin Laden's death.  It seems obvious that they waited until after the wedding to announce it, given the security concerns.  It makes sense that the Royal couple would be secure at a military base instead of a resort.  With fingerprint ID and email, the team would have positive ID of Bin Laden in an hour.

 

The Royal nuptuals were even more important than Bin Laden's death.  What class!  Now this guy can't even disrupt a wedding.
