Golden ticket holders cheer with delight as they witness the royal wedding

From swan rescuers to injured Ghurkas, a teenager from the Welsh Valleys to a hospice fundraiser, they gathered in their finery and settled down in ringside seats to witness the only show in town. The grass alongside St George’s Chapel on Saturday was thronged with lucky golden ticket holders invited to watch the Royal wedding unfold from within the grounds of Windsor Castle. As the brilliant sunshine bore down, some 1,200 members of the public laid out picnic rugs and folding chairs, unpacked their hampers… There was a man dressed from head to toe in Union Jacks, another who had purchased a full top hat and tails especially for the occasion. Others were in scout neckerchiefs and cadet uniforms.
