We just added this new Celebrity Tour of London to the top of our “must-do” list the next time we’re traveling across the pond to visit our family.

We were in London for Prince Andrew’s wedding and still remember standing along the Mall for 8 hours to catch a glimpse of the Royal Carriage – and a little later, the Prince and his bride Fergie waving to the crowds from the balcony of Buckingham Palace. It was such a special moment. And this Royal Wedding is going to be even more magical – as Prince William, the future King of England, marries his true love, Kate Middleton. I’m sure Princess Diana will be looking down and smiling 🙂
