Royal wedding fever hits Warwick
WARWICK’S tiara stockpile is running desperately low, with many of the plastic crowns being snapped up for royal parties tonight.
The Reject Shop store manager Dagmar Simon said the regal accessories had sold in a matter of days.
“We would have sold at least 30 since we opened up after Easter,” she said.
“People are really excited about the wedding and it seems to be not just the younger generations.
“And at the parties they’re doing anything from making up royal names to all sorts of other games.
"I didn’t realise there were so many royal diehards in Warwick!”
Sisters Danielle and Staci Thomas were forced to resort to other means of dressing up for tonight’s wedding after discovering their embellishment of choice was sold out.
The girls said they would be balancing homework with television viewing of the wedding with the rest of their family.
“I’m looking forward to seeing what Kate wears,” nine-year-old Staci said.
“We’ll probably watch bits of it, but whatever we miss we’ll definitely see next week,” Danielle, 14, added.
Warwick State High School student Aimee Ridge said she had a better offer than to watch the nuptials – a ticket to the Chris Brown concert.
“I think Prince William and Kate should be allowed to (get married) in privacy though.
"I don’t see why everyone should be watching it,” she said.
Fellow student Josh Rasterfield agreed and had a conspiracy theory of his own.
“I think this wedding is a fake and they’ll have their real one later on,” he said.
“I won’t be watching it though.”
