memoirs, art and fragments by Thomas Milner

Hurray To Be British!

I must confess that on this day I am proud to be British.

I’m an unashamed romantic at heart and besides, we do this kind of thing, (Royal Weddings, Coronations, and Processions etc.) rather better than anyone else, don’t we?

STAIN GLASS - PAINTING BY THOMAS MILNER

I wish William and Kate joy and harmony in their marriage and long may they to continue to make people like us crypto-patriots proud to belong to the same nation that produced Chaucer and Shakespeare, Newton and Darwin, Gainsborough and Turner, Blake and Coleridge, Rolls Royce and Range Rover, Peter Cook and Monty Python, John Lennon and Keith Richards, Pink Floyd and Queen, Coldplay and so on and so forth.

And so on this day I have raised my glass in silent toast – To William and Katherine!
