Guest List

Who, from Northern Ireland, attended the Royal Wedding? There must have a few guests other than this list of mine:

  • The eight Lord-Lieutenants, representing the six counties of the Province plus the cities of Belfast and Londonderry, viz. Mrs Joan Christie, Lord Caledon, Dame Mary Peters, David Lindsay Esq, Lord Erne, Denis Desmond Esq, Donal Keegan Esq, Robert Scott Esq. Were their spouses invited also? 
  • The two archbishops of Armagh 
  • The First Minister of Northern Ireland; Mrs Robinson declined
  • The Duke of Abercorn, being a Garter Knight and former Lord Steward of the Household; was the Duchess invited?

I was in London on Friday at the Royal Wedding on Horseguards Parade representing Boys' Brigade, we also got right to the Gates of the Palace for the Balcony appearance.

The Lord-Lieutenants were not accompanied by their spouses nor were the clergy accompanied. The Moderator was also there.

I do believe Her Grace the Duchess of Abercorn was present though I have not spotted her on any footage of the wedding.

I think there were a few more NI Guests including Mr and Mrs Hay represeting the NI Assembly.

It was a wonderful day.
