As the world watched one of the most anticipated weddings of the century, residents of The Buckingham senior living community were preparing for their own royal wedding celebrations. More than 50 residents and staff members participated in the royal wedding extravaganza, which included a three-tiered wedding cake, high tea, and of course, big hats!
“Because our community shares the same name as the royal palace, it was only fitting that we have a special observance,” said Cathy Lightfoot, director of sales and marketing at The Buckingham. “The hats at the wedding were spectacular, although I think a few of the hats our residents created would have given some of the wedding guests a run for their money!”
