That's how you celebrate a Royal Wedding in style!

The British American Foundation of Texas certainly pulled out all the stops for a Royal Wedding Watch Party on May 19 as Prince Harry married Meghan Markle.

200 guests attended the festivities at the Royal Oaks Country Club.  They enjoyed brunch and mimosas while they watched the wedding on big screens, followed by a toast to the newlyweds from Her Majesty's Consul Karen Bell, a round of royal bingo, royal trivia, a hat competition and raffle prizes.  The photobooth was a hit (especially the cardboard royals in attendance and inflatable corgis) and guests took home their own branded mugs.

Guests were delighted with the event and Fox26 was present to show the rest of the USA what it was missing out on!

Photos from the event are here.
