Many thousands travelled to London to cheer and wave flags while public screenings were held for those who stayed nearer home to watch the ceremony with family and friends.

Sue Tyler from Woodley arrived at the station with eight friends shortly after 6.30am waving union jack flags and sporting patriotic T-shirts.

Ms Tyler, who was hoping to get a prime spot at the Horse Guards Parade, Whitehall, said: "We are all really excited. It's an early start but it's going to be worth it as we've been preparing for it since they got engaged."

They call it puppet love...

Back in 2011, a nan from Tilehurst spent weeks getting ready for her very own Royal Wedding.

Jan Wallbanks spent hours preparing for the big day - making that royal blue frock for Kate, suited and booted Prince William and even a posh collar for The Queen's corgi, Susan.

But the 63-year-old had never met the Royals and instead built up the VIP entourage by knitting them out of wool.

Jan made the dolls, each of which took three or four days to finish, using Fiona Goble's Knit Your Own Royal Wedding - a book so popular that Wordplay Books in Caversham's Prospect Road, sold out in a matter of days.

The mother of two and grandmother of four, said: "I've always knitted, I knit from the moment I wake up really, until I go to bed. I knitted all my children's clothes when they were younger and just started these for a bit of fun when I got the book."

The Pentahotel in Reading designed a luxurious sweet as a tribute to Kate Middleton and her husband William.

The 'Red White and Blue', which was designed to symbolise the nation's flag, was made up of sweet rhubarb or raspberry and vanilla tartlet, topped with a sweet blueberry ice cream and a champagne sabayon.

Fans gather at South Hill Park

Well-wishers wearing red, white and blue gathered at South Hill Park arts centre in Bracknell, where the TV coverage was projected 10ft high onto a white wall.

Among those attending the screening was Bracknell woman Jacquie Pegler, 43, who wore a white wedding-style dress with lace sleeves - by coincidence a similar design to the elegant Sarah Burton dress worn by the royal bride.

Mrs Pegler said: "I wanted to do something a bit different for the day, make an effort. I think Kate looked beautiful, stunning - she looked gorgeous."
