Standing up for national anthem

Have your say

What a wonderful wedding. It had me glued to the TV. It was lovely to have good news after all the doom and gloom.

I was moved to tears, with a silly smile on my face, by the service, the crowds and the pomp and ceremony.

How lovely everyone looked and the glances between William and Catherine were marvellous to see and showed their love for each other. I wish a long and happy marriage to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. I even stood for the anthem!


How fantastic to see the millions of Union flags cheerfully displayed all over the country for the Royal Wedding.

It gladdens the heart to see such an outpouring of pride in our country, its traditions and our Royal Family.

It is easy to think that the country is nowadays peopled only by cynics, particularly at a time of such painful economic cutbacks, but the wedding of William and Catherine showed that such despair is misplaced.

We have a lot to be proud of in Britain and I would love everyone to keep on displaying their flags, both large and small, long after the wedding day. Come on, stand up and be counted as a patriot.
