Love it or hate it, the Royal Wedding has been big news recently. Many British citizens have been celebrating the Royal Wedding in Spain and a few of them are featured here for you. If you have any photos of your activities on Saturday, feel free to email them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll consider adding them into this article.
As you would expect, the British Consulate in Madrid was busy on Saturday, with guests attending from all over Spain. A garden party was held in the grounds, giving everyone a chance to meet old friends and make new ones. It was a great chance to enjoy the atmosphere and to watch the wedding live on the television.
Several awards were given out on the day including one to Costa Women for “Outstanding Contribution,” an award that is well deserved. Ali Meehan told Spain Buddy today that she was “deeply honoured to have been recognised and to have been given the award. I am proud to accept on behalf of all Costa Women across Spain and those who are still dreaming of moving here.”
Spain Buddy’s Elle has been a member of Costa Women almost since its inception. She says, “It’s great to see recognition for Ali Meehan (Costa Women’s Founder) and all the ladies that work so hard to promote business and social events across the country. Give yourselves a round of applause ladies!”
Other friends of Spain Buddy that were honoured at the garden party included the Samaritans in Spain and the Royal British Legion.
HMA Simon Manley commented on Saturday, “This wonderful event today illustrates the enormous breadth and depth of the contributions made by British people working with our local partners in almost every corner of Spain. For example, we have community groups that work with the elderly and the unwell, the Royal British Legion, church groups, community groups, British schools representing the 55,000 children who study in British schools across Spain , and of course, our local partners, from Town Halls and our Honorary Consuls. It has been an honour to meet such a huge range of inspirational people today, and celebrate this Royal wedding together”
