The Royal Wedding in Milwaukee

Kilbourn Avenue in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on the shore of Lake Michigan, became a little slice of Britain on Friday, April 29, 2011.  Members of the Woman’s Club of Wisconsin, est. 1876,  gathered at the elegant clubhouse to celebrate the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton, now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Kir Royales were approriate for the many  toasts to the happy couple . . .

Everyone is always eager for an excuse to wear her favorite hat — though some opted for fascinators.
The printed Menu Card was cleverly contrived to include a picture of “The Kiss” above the words “William and Kate Forever.”  Thanks to the tech-savvy staff members who managed the feat!

The menu, crafted by chef Steve Derby:
Petite Prime Rib of Beef
Queen Elizabeth Mashed Potatoes
Minted Pea Puree
Royal Bread Pudding
with Vanilla Sauce
Some of the guests looked amazingly familiar…
Oh, now we get it…
And if Prince Harry is looking for some company, just send him over!
We had a great time, just one of thousands of groups of Anglophiles the world over.
Best wishes to the happy couple….
