Moments before the blushing bride Kate Middleton began her procession down Westminster Abbey, Haines-Sanger realised she was sporting earrings designed by client Robinson Pelham. Cue a mad dash for a rather stuffily worded statement 'under strict guidelines from Clarence House'. 'It's amazing having a client that's part of history,' gushed Haines-Sanger.
Graham Smith, campaign manager of anti-royalist campaign group Republic, stridently dubbed the royal wedding 'a lot of spin and hype and PR' for the royalist machine. His comments came after organising his group's 'Not the royal wedding' street party with many of the nation's media in attendance. Then came the 'Love Republic' party and fundraiser in the evening. And a few choice comments to the media. If you can't beat them, then you may as well join them at their own game, eh Graham?
