ILLUSTRATION + DESIGN

This is the week!

Staving off our frenzied anticipation, we’ve been devouring our favorite British telly during these final weeks before the big ‘do at Windsor Castle!

Happy Valley, Unforgotten, Last Tango In Halifax, Broadchurch, River, Paranoid, The Crown, Victoria and Scott & Bailey…plus every special devoted to the history of the British Monarchy and a season or two of Great British Bake Off. All glad company during the final countdown.

Prepping a menu of delectable tea sandwiches, cakes, petit fours, trifles, strong coffee, beans & toast, and an alarm set well before the Chicago sunrise, this Yank of English, Irish and French descent is going over the top while feting the wedding of Harry & Meghan by sipping Earl Grey tea with milk – from my commemorative millennial Will & Kate mug AND my 1940s Queen Mum mug. Dressing to fit the occasion, I’ll be donning my John Lewis Union Jack pants paired with my Spice Girls tee.

So raise your glass: here’s to tradition, history, grandeur, love and all thinks Great Britain.
