The things they say

“I know them a little and I like them a lot and very sweetly they invited me to the wedding and it was great, a wonderful sort of atmospheric, theatrical, Shakespearean event… (But) I wasn’t invited (to the reception). Only a third of the guests in the church were invited to the reception at Buckingham Palace and I wasn’t one of them. It shows how relatively distant my relationship is (with the royal family).” Johnny English star Rowan Atkinson on attending Britain’s royal wedding between Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge earlier this year (11).
