Back from Blackpool, and after a quick trip to Sainsbury's for some fresh milk and fruit, I settled down to prepare my Royal Wedding display for school tomorrow. I could not do it earlier, as I needed photos from the Saturday papers!
Two things which have amused me. Firstly, listening to Ed Stourton, on Radio 4, I was really confused by something he said. I couldn’t research it properly till now, but I have listened over and over to the commentary [it is 5min 26sec into the service on the Radio4 Listen Again facility] Ed said…
“the bride moves through the gilded organ screen…joining Prince William on the steps of this aquarium”
Now, I was on the motorbike on Friday, listening through earbuds – but now I am at the computer in the quiet of my room, and he definitely says that!!!
I have tried to find some sort of Latin word [the sequariem? the caequarium?] which might refer to a part of the Abbey near the High Altar, but I have had no success. Can anyone enlighten me as to what he actually said, and what it means?
Secondly, I’ve also been catching up with blogs, and I’m indebted to Jane for pointing out where Beatrice got the idea for her hat!
It’s good to be home again!
