'Global London' set for royal wedding


London is one of the world’s most diverse cities where over 300 languages are spoken and some 50 non-indigenous communities live.

And they plan to celebrate this very British royal wedding in their own special way.

One Italian man, who originally hails from the island of Sardinia, said: “We feel that we are part of this event and we are really happy to celebrate it.”

One Iraqi-born Londoner said she had changed her vacation plans to take part in the festivities.

“I’m very happy and I wish them well. I was meant to go on holiday today but I put back my trip to watch the ceremony,” she said.

One Iranian woman said that perhaps not all Brits would be glued to their TV screens during Friday’s ceremony.

“I think for some people it will be a chance to go out and have fun but without really thinking as to the real reason why,” she told euronews.
