Fine weather and a wedding somewhere in Windsor contributed to a capacity crowd enjoying an open-house day at the residence of the British ambassador.

Although Saturday’s open house at the residence of British ambassador John Marshall was not billed as a royal wedding viewing event, it soon became clear that for many guests the nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was one of the main draws. A significant number of female guests in particular were attired as though attending a wedding, and the room in which embassy staff had erected a television to screen the wedding from Windsor was packed to capacity and beyond well before the arrival of the bride.
And even after the wedding broadcast had finished, guests still kept turning up at the residence to enjoy the weather and stroll around the grounds and take in the splendid view from the garden across the Petrusse.
