Three lovely ladies at Union Jack's in Bethesda got dolled up to watch the wedding of William and Kate.

At Union Jack's in Bethesda, the doors opened at 5 a.m. and a crowd filed in, filling every seat at the bar and every table that had not already been reserved.

Luckily, Liz Beale and Shawn Fischer were able to grab a table in front of one of the pub's 25 large screen TVs.

"We thought that it was remarkable, notable, something that was spectacular, and something that we both wanted to see," they say. "We were both infants when Princess Diana got married. It was fascinating, we loved every bit of the ceremony. It was perfect.

The restaurant also offered guests a special royal wedding breakfast this morning to celebrate.

If you missed all the hubbub this morning, it will play again at noon on our third channel, Intersection, available on HD Radio at 88.5-3. You can also stream Intersection online.
