I thought it would be only tourists who were over at Buckingham----but there were lots of Brits there. Lots and lots of media doing live coverage----we saw several news anchors we had seen on the morning news across from the palace doing continuous live coverage. I'm sure that we looked like all those clueless people you see in a live shot behind the media line.....we resisted the impulse to wave...
