British Expats in the Los Angeles area are thrilled by the royal engagement, according to this article on DailyNews.com:
Over games of bingo and lunch of bangers and mash, British expatriates in the San Fernando Valley rejoiced Tuesday at what they anticipate will be the biggest royal wedding since Prince Charles wed Lady Diana three decades ago.
News from overseas that the handsome Prince William and attractive Kate Middleton had announced their engagement elicited repeated cries of “How lovely!” among the many regulars of The Mayflower, a social club in North Hollywood founded in 1965 for those who emigrated from England after World War II.
Then again, perhaps it’s just the ladies who are tickled pink over the big announcement:
Of the few men at the club playing bingo or having lunch, some waved off the whole engagement as a publicity stunt by the royals. It’s the ladies who fell for such stories, some men said, chuckling.
Good British comedy! Wish they had included a retort from some of the British ladies after that comment from the men!
