The royal wedding on Saturday cost around 30 million pounds but it has been calculated that it will benefit the British economy to the tune of about one billion pounds. Good business I would say. In Spain the royal wedding has generated ever more interest in Britain. The British Ambassador to Spain, Simon Manley, held a reception at his home in the centre of Madrid for the royal wedding. It was a double celebration because the ambassador invited representatives of many of the British charities and organisations which do such good work up and down Spain and presented them with a diploma of thanks. There was a party atmosphere and many Spanish media outlets were present and, in some cases, broadcasting the event live. It was great publicity for Britain and showed the country in a great light.
