Downey resident Shirley Johnson, who also operates Worldwide Airport Shuttle/Medical Transfers, visited England last month for the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. "I was standing on Whitehall around the corner from Westminster Abbey and saw the bands and the wedding procession," Johnson tells the Patriot. "I walked up the Mall to Buckingham Palace the day before the wedding and took this picture, in front of the gates of the palace. I attended services in Westminster Abbey two days after the wedding and walked down the same aisle and was 30 feet from the altar where they were married and heard the Abbey's famous choir." Johnson goes on: "London was electric with excitement. Parties throughout the streets, flags everywhere and all the pubs were open with the wide-screen TVs going and people camping on the wedding route. What a non-stop party...and no rain in sight!" ********** Published: May 12, 2011 - Volume 10 - Issue 4
