Thank you for all for the congratulatory messages yesterday! I'm happy to report that I'm now officially a British citizen!
The ceremony, held in Kensington Town Hall, was lovely and surprisingly ceremonial.
I've been to one or two of such ceremonies back in Canada, and (although it may be slightly unpatriotic to say this), I have to say this one was better.
Maybe it's because I was taking an active part, but the individual oaths that we had to take, the Alderman in his ceremonial dress and the music that played throughout the ceremony certainly put a tear in my slightly jaded eye.
Afterwards, we had tea and biscuits with the ceremony officials, where we learned that Kensingon is one of three Royal Boroughs in the country (the other two are Kingston and Windsor).
And then The Man and I took off to the nearby pub for a celebratory Pimms in the sun.
What better way to celebrate being British?
