Royal wedding: Bunting out across UK for parties
Royal wedding watchers across the UK are hanging out the bunting as more than 5,000 street parties are held.

PM David Cameron will attend a party in Downing Street, where cupcakes baked by his wife Samantha will be served.

And St Andrews, the Fife town where Prince William and Kate Middleton met, will host 1,500 people for a breakfast.

The scenes will be replicated in streets, squares, pubs and churches across the UK, including the bride’s home village of Bucklebury, Berkshire.

Fancy dress

A wedding breakfast is being held in the hamlet of Chapel Row where the Middletons live, and Bucklebury Farm Park is staging a day of celebrations culminating in a proms-style fanfare.

The wedding will be broadcast live on big screens in various cities and towns, including in Southampton, where people have been encouraged to dress in patriotic red, white and blue.

Hundreds of revellers will hold a fancy dress party on the restored £39m Grand Pier in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset.
