Great Yarmouth - Drinkers raise Royal Wedding toast

DRINKERS at a Great Yarmouth pub raised a patriotic toast to the royal couple this morning.

The King's Arms was festooned with Union Flags to celebrate the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Locals packed the pub on Northgate Street to watch the couple's wedding on a big screen.

Landlord Michael Pywell said: 'I am a royalist so wanted to mark the occasion in style. It is the first royal wedding to take place since I have been running the pub. It is like having our own little street party.'

Brunch was served amid a party atmosphere as people crowded in front of the TV to watch the ceremony.

Mother and daughter Patricia Wilson and Joelle Wyton had popped into the pub to see service.

Accounts manager Joelle said: 'I am quite a fan of royal occasions and wanted to feel part of celebrations. I am really looking forward to seeing the wedding dress and the two princes look so handsome.'
