We arrived here in London on Wednesday evening and had a busy first day here yesterday!
In the morning I interviewed Arthur Edwards, Royal Photographer of The Sun. Arthur has had unprecedented access to the Royal Family over the years. He took the infamous picture of Princess Dianna in front of the nursery school where she worked before marrying Prince Charles where the sun shone through her skirt and it appeared to be transparent. He is such an interesting man and hearing his stories was captivating. Afterwards we stopped at a bookstore on our way to the next interview because I was dying to buy his book, Magic Moments... which I highly recommended!

After interviewing Arthur we went over to the nursery school where Diana worked to shoot a stand up out in front:

The next interview was a learning experience for me - the world of betting! We visited a famous bet shop here in London, William Hill and spoke with Rupert Adams, an expert on the betting going on surrounding the Royal Wedding. This piece was so much fun and I can't wait for you to hear about all the bets Brits are placing on the specifics of the wedding day. . . Do you think the Queen will wear a blue hat? purple? or might she try to upstage the bride and wear white? (I think not!)

In the evening we set up in front of Buckingham Palace for a live shot on Shepard Smith's show Studio B. I had a blast chatting with Shepard about the betting that I learned about earlier in the day and I think he got a kick out of it too!

We're now getting ready for another busy day of interviews so stay tuned for more pics! And tune into Fox News Channel to catch my stories over the next couple weeks leading up to the wedding!
