CARDINAL Sean Brady, Primate of All-Ireland, has been given the nod to attend the nuptials of Wills and Kate inside Westminster Abbey today.
As a special treat, TheJournal.ie‘s regular columnist and spiritual guide, (Not) Cardinal Brady, has agreed to liveblog EXCLUSIVELY for us today from (just outside) the Abbey.
And so it begins…
10.57 – George Michael is back from the toilets. He sits beside me and winks. I can hear from the screams outside that Kate Middleton is arriving. I can’t go anywhere. I will just have to hold it.
11.11 – David Furnish and Father Lawlor are still laughing. There are Malteser crumbs everywhere. Some of the people sitting nearby are asking them to shush. I edge away from them, but it means edging nearer George Michael.
11.34 – That is a scarf the Bishop of London is wearing. That is so not a vestment of any kind.
11.35 – Security have just spotted Michael Barrymore.
11.50 – Am not sure, but I think I just heard somebody called David Cameron a Jeremy Hunt.
11.51 – Elton has a “I am thinking about wedding cake” look in his eyes.
11.53 – Come on. Come on. I still need to go wee wee.
