CTV Launces a Royal Wedding Website.
Im all honesty, I am 100% watching this wedding. Princess Diana Came to Halifax when I was a kid, Mom brought me to Halifax (we live in Dartmouth) Anyway, we were waiting to cross at a crosswalk a limo was driving by, and it stoped infront of us, Diana was in the back she rolled her window down and waved. All according to my Mom, I don't remember it at all. But still ...... Here's the low down on the website....
This Wednesday, CTV marks the start of the 100-day countdown to the Royal Wedding with the launch of TheRoyals.ca, a robust, one-stop online destination for all of the news, photos, information and speculation leading up to The Royal Wedding.
