KP as it is known to insiders has been transformed into the nerve centre of the wedding of the year. You only have to listen the noisy whirl of rotor blades of helicopters landing and taking off at regular intervals. The Prince of Wales and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall including Princess Anne have all taken off close to Perk’s Field outside the palace.
Mother of the bride, Doria Ragland has also been staying as a guest of Harry and Meghan where she was met for the first time by the groom’s father. She will be having tea with the Queen at Windsor Castle on the eve of the ceremony.
The Kensington Palace machine have also had their hands full issuing regular press updates through the twists and turns of this very modern royal event.
It is also the home of some of the royal wedding party including best man Prince William and his wife Kate together with their children who are performing important roles at the ceremony, Prince George as a page boy and Princess Charlotte as a bridesmaid. Paparazzi are always camped outside the gates on High Street Kensington using traffic and the shops as camouflage.
Only way to avoid those slow shutter speeds that blur motion is to hop away in a chopper away from prying eyes.
