All at Clogau Gold would like to congratulate the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge!
Here at Clogau HQ, we have long awaited the 29th of April, as it promised the continuation of an 88-year old tradition of using pure Welsh Gold to create Royal wedding rings (or ring, in this case). Catherine’s ring was a very simple yet beautiful band, crafted by the jeweller, Wartski.
The wedding was watched by millions and truly showcased the best of British. The bride-to-be looked beautiful in an Alexander McQueen dress, which confirmed speculation, and walked down the over 3-minute long isle with her father to her groom – HRH Prince William.
Hundreds of thousands of well-wishing spectators laced the streets, all seeking a glimpse of the happy couple as they emerged from Westminster Abbey and made their way to Buckingham Palace for the wedding reception. Some more enthusiastic spectators camped out for days before in order to claim the most coveted spots!
From the press stand, the view of the couple was distant yet the passion and atmosphere present on the day was still unmistakable. The newly-weds delighted the crowds with not one, but two, Royal kisses to seal their marriage.
