Royal Wedding Fever Hits NYC
Next week, millions will watch the royal wedding.
Back here in the former colonies, specifically in the quintessential American neighborhood known as "the Village", a walk around the block will show that royal wedding fever has taken over.
While some storefronts are decorated with British flags and even wedding gowns, two stores in particular went above and beyond their royal call of duty.
On Hudson Street in the West Village, Myers of Keswick', a business that caters to everything British, from pasties to cleaning products, has wedding souvenirs for sale, some displayed on their windows, including dishes, picture frames with the royal couple, and even plates with pictures of Diana.
A few blocks away, another very English place, Tea and Sympathy, is promoting a Royal Wedding Block Party, with activities on Friday April 29th, including viewing the event starting at 6am, and a royal wedding breakfast at 8am, followed by....royal wedding lunch.
Kate and William fever has hit NYC!
