A Right Royal Wedding

PR Hit or Miss?

The minute ‘Kate & Wills’ made the announcement PR & marketing folks were thinking of ways to maximise the royal wedding fever. As we head into the royal wedding week I am waving the flag (a Union Jack one of course) for all the PR people who have got their message across.

Nice to see I am pulling a face, best to be reliable

Well done T-Mobile Royal Wedding 2001 fantastic video. I am excepting to see dancing at Westminster Abbey on Friday. Wow, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, is a great mover. What do you mean it’s not real???

The Official Royal Wedding 2011 website is fantastic with exclusive video and photo content. It utilises Twitter feeds @ClarenceHouse and Flickr images British Monarchy. You can add your images to Flickr and tag them rw2011, perfect if you are out snapping on the day.

My favourite idea has been from artist Lydia Leith and her Thrown Up Sick Bag, now in royal purple, glittering gold and red, white and blue – very funny. I also love her new Cleavage Card.

While travel PR’s are creating opportunities Kate Middleton’s home village of Bucklebury hosts a ‘knights and maidens’ themed party from the Round Table at the Bladebone pub and the Cottage Inn is holding a fireworks display.

Locally on Anglesey the Holyhead Rotary Club with Isle of Anglesey County Council are holding Môn UN diwrnod mawr / Anglesey ONE big day at the Anglesey Show Ground, Mona.

More information is on the Isle of Anglesey County Councils website, the Anglesey – One Big Day preparations in full swing.

At the beginning of the year Simon Calder, Travel Editor of the Independent, put Anglesey at the top of his list of 11 Destinations for 2011. Good to know that this year Anglesey beats Burma, Chile and Iceland. So come and visit Anglesey in 2011.

On Friday 29th April we will be raising a glass of bubbly and wishing them well. With all the media attention they receive I hope they begin their married life on Anglesey where peace and quite will reign.
