French friends love the Royal Wedding

All the ladies stole the show all looking very elegant for the wedding!
In France any excuse can be used for a lunch or dinner invitation so the Royal Wedding provided yet another opportunity to have our French friends for lunch. Royal themed invitations were sent out and Maureen came up with a magnificent 'wedding breakfast' menu for the big day. Some friends had previous engagements but we ended up with 10 for lunch, just sufficient to fit around the table. Everyone made some effort with flags or hats. 
Patrick arrived in his Morgan looking very 'English' 

Liste des invités - all given titles for the big day! 

·       Sir Michel and Lady Chantal  de Voncq
·       Philippe Duke of Maison Carreau and Dutchess Natelie
