Greetings from Berkshire, UK
 
Hi guys,

I am from Reading, which is in the county of Berkshire in England. This is very close to Windsor (30 mins) in fact :smile:.

I always had a passing interest in the Royal Family, but really got enthused while I was developing a Royal Wedding iPhone app (you can check it out in my sig if you like).

I am hoping to pick up lots of new information, and hopefully contribute some too. I had to research lots of facts for the app, so have picked up all sorts of obscure info along the way.

Anyway, thats me. Oh, and my name is Mark :smile:

Hi, Mark. I'm new here too - but what a great idea that app is!

Hi, and thank you very much :smile:

But I can't take all the credit, my better half came up with the idea. It was kind of a joint project which we could enjoy together, and hopefully provide some fun for others too.

Well, having the skills to do apps is a special thing. We are wishing we'd planned our vacation to coincide a bit better with the Royal Wedding, but alas, our holiday time doesn't come until mid-May.

Ah, that's a shame. Well if you are lucky, the street parties will still be going on ;), but I fear even the most hardened royalists will be partied out by then.

Hi Mark and welcome to TRF.
Should be exciting to be close to Windsor. :))

Hi there. Yes indeed, I have been there many times, and it is a lovely place. Windsor Castle is definitely worth visiting! I read somewhere that Prince William originally wanted to stage the wedding there (at St George's Chapel), but later changed his mind, but not sure how true this is...

I hope I can visit one day. :smile:
