Royal Wedding Coverage: Peter Smith of Spend Matters UK Outdoes Himself

Well, William and Catherine (she'll always be Kate to me) are happily married and I have to admit: I called the lace sleeves. Fashion aside, let's leave the procurement angle to Peter Smith, who received an urgent phone call last about it here! Might the Royal Wedding need some procurement help?

Live coverage begins here: The diary of the Royal Wedding Head of Procurement

Highlights include:

OK, so who told Her Majesty gold was trading at $1500 an ounce? Have been sent to Hatton Garden with bag of old crowns, orbs etc "to trade in and raise a few quid to cover the drinks at the reception".

Bit of a mess-up on the lingerie front. I've been sent out to the Army and Navy Department store to make some emergency purchases. Stockings or tights though? I'm just not sure which William wears.

Harry also got excited about the price of gold and silver; asked me if anyone would notice if he did a quick switch on the ring? Told him to put it back in his pocket and leave it alone!

Look for further coverage as the day goes on!
