Venues host Harry and Meghan’s wed­ding

Cyprus Today - - LEISURE -

SI­LENCE pre­vailed as crowds watched Prince Harry and Meghan Markle say “I do” at Satur­day’s royal wed­ding which was screened live at venues in the TRNC.

Among mil­lions watch­ing this year’s “big­gest TV event” in the UK was a mainly fe­male au­di­ence of some 40 in Ozanköy’s Cor­ner House, with some wear­ing fancy hats for a com­pe­ti­tion that saw a bot­tle of Prosecco go­ing to the win­ner. A bar­be­cue and cakes, in­clud­ing brown­ies, lemon curd and cup­cakes, were served and live mu­si­cal en­ter­tain­ment was later pro­vided by Pinks.

Bar man­ager Ve­sela Hris­tova said: “Ev­ery­one was so silent while they watched the wed­ding with full con­cen­tra­tion but we all had great fun in a cheer­ful at­mos­phere”.

At Tim’s Café, also in Ozanköy, some 60 peo­ple turned up in red, white and blue out­fits to let out a rous­ing cheer the mo­ment the cou­ple said “I do”. A meal of choice and drinks then fol­lowed and cus­tomers were en­ter­tained by Rachel Sings and Brian De­laney.

Mean­while, at Karşıyaka’s Mon­tene­gro’C Sports Bar and Restau­rant, an au­di­ence of 40 peo­ple watched the wed­ding on four TVs be­fore the win­ner of a “best-dressed” com­pe­ti­tion re­ceived a bot­tle of Prosecco.

Emo­tions ran wild dur­ing the screen­ing at Lapta’s Al­vadar restau­rant and bar which ini­tially served lunch to some 50 cus­tomers — which in­creased to 70 later in the evening as live mu­sic was pro­vided by the Nor­mAl Band and then a screen­ing of the FA Cup Fi­nal.
