Barrow when Harry wed Meghan

For the most part it was very, very low key. As you walked through the village on the morning of May 19th you couldn’t tell anything at all special was happening out in the wider world until you came to The Three Crowns. Then you did.

There were large TV screens inside and out and the place was a riot of red, white and blue. There were balloons tied to the railings, Union Jack-bedecked walls and most telling of all, drinkers sitting in the sunshine wearing tiny Union Jack bowler hats. You could eat, drink and watch Serena, Elton and Posh walk to the church, listen to the mould-breaking service and see the beautiful couple ride off into the sunset - or was it just a quick trot round Windsor? Further from the screens, children bounced on a distinctly non-royal castle or were kept amused by professional entertainers. The garden filled up: this pub, on this Saturday, was certainly a good place to be to watch a royal wedding.
