The Royal Wedding: how did we look?

Well even TED is not safe from the royal wedding hype, apologies.

I am a very patriotic Brit traveling Asia and the South Pacific.
Currently based in New Zealand, I watched the Royal wedding in the late evening and fully enjoyed every second of it.

Firstly, I was overwhelmed by the precise, organisation of the entire event.
Secondly, the history and tradition of the occasion made me feel very proud to be British indeed.

*What I am interested in, is the world's perception of Britain after having watched an event such as the royal wedding.

Impressed and awed?
envious even?
pompous bigots?
Britain trying to cling onto greatness?

how did we look?

* I do not want to know if you liked the dress! haha

    May 2 2011: I watched the wedding last night- very belatedly. It really was a lovely event and in a wonderful way- kind of wacky! The pomp and ceremony juxtaposed against the weirder than weird women's hats. This time though the couple at the center of it all appeared to be stable, happy and mature. Good on ya mate!
