Photo Gallery:Royal Wedding celebrated at Sandringham

Royal Estate visitors watch the wedding

More than 200 people packed the visitor centre on the Royal Estate at Sandringham to enjoy watching the Royal Wedding on a big screen.

There was standing room only by just after 10am as royal fans gathered to watch the event and share the moment. Others had to make do with peering through the windows to catch a sight of that dress - which drew audible oohs and aahs.

The arrival of the Queen and Prince Philip at the Abbey prompted a round of applause and cheers from the Sandringham centre.

Children in fancy dress and waving flags were joined by members of a different generation who sat to enjoy the spectacle with a free cup of tea of coffee provided by the visitor centre.

'I had the jitters last night and didn't know if anyone would come,' said Kevin Steward, who runs the restaurant.

But they certainly turned-out, complete with Union Jack flags, tiaras and fancy dress for the youngsters.
