There will be a little piece of Bermuda in front of Buckingham Palace today as thousands celebrate the Royal Wedding.

Debbie Barboza and her mom Elaine Betts will be sporting ‘Feel the Love’ pink shirts and waving Bermuda flags.

Mrs Barboza, an asthma nurse who has worked in Bermuda for 22 years, flew back to England on Wednesday night.


She spent last night in a tent to ensure she has front-row seats for the celebrations.

She told the Bermuda Sun: “I just didn’t want to miss it.

“My mum said that my other sisters did not want to go so I booked my ticket around three months ago.

“The atmosphere here is just incredible and I am so glad that I made the effort to come.

“It is like everyone is having a big party.

“Everyone is smiling and people are dressed up as the Queen. We saw Kate Middleton drive past a few minutes ago and she was waving at all the crowds.

“There are people from all over the world gathered in London for this event and everyone is just having a wonderful time.”

Mrs Barboza, whose husband Adam works for the Tourism Department, arrived in London on Thursday to meet up with her mother.

The pair then headed straight into the city centre to get the best viewing spot they could find.

Mrs Barbooza said: “We will have front-row seats for the kiss on the balcony.

“One night in a tent is not so bad. We have brought sleeping bags, food and drink with us so we don’t need to go anywhere else.

“I’ll have memories from this that I will keep with me for the rest of my life.

“This is one of those events that you won’t get the chance to be a part of again so I thought I’d make the most of it.

“The sun is shining and England looks fantastic.”
