Royal Wedding Coverage in London - Day 3
Day 3 started off with an interview at the Elle UK offices. I got a chance to speak with Amy Lawrenson, Beauty Writer for the magazine about Kate Middleton's transformation and expected look for her "big day." It was very cool to see the magazine's London home base and Amy could not have been sweeter!
After the interview we did a little impromptu birthday surprise for one of our amazing Fox Producers, Kayleigh McEnany with cupcakes from a sweets shop in Selfridges! Our other wonderful producer, Megan Lawson set the whole thing up!
Next we were off to Westminster Abbey where Kate and William will actually tie the knot. We wanted to shoot a stand up right at the spot where Kate will get out of her Rolls Royce and the world will see her dress for the first time... but the guards didn't think that was such a great idea! We moved a couple of strides over to where we could shoot without a problem and managed to still get a great shot of the Abbey behind us!
In the evening we did a live shot back to The Huckabee Show with a debate about taxpayers footing the bill for the Royal Family and the upcoming wedding. We had the campaign manager of The Republic, Graham Smith representing the anti-monarchy perspective and Rafal Heydel-Mankoo, patron of the British Monarchist League representing the pro-monarchy perspective. It was a fun spot and an interesting discussion!
After the work day was over I got to have a fantastic dinner at Ivy with a dear friend and producer of my series Behind Closed Doors, Eric Schotz and his wife Linda. It was so nice to meet up with friends in another city and get to enjoy our last night there together!
