There was no shortage of floral tributes at this year's Sandringham Flower Show, but what really caught the eye of Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall was a bridal bouquet of white blooms including a colourful knitted interpretation of the royal wedding (complete with Woollyam and his bride). The work of "knit wit" Barbara Frary of Fakenham, Norfolk, it was a big hit with the royal couple, who love a good yarn. "Oh, what fun, just look at this. I recognise myself in the salmon outfit," said the Duchess, while her husband chuckled as he pointed to a knitted corgi. "I Love it!" Camilla declared. --Hello Magazine 8th August 2011

I was speaking to the lady that owns my LYS and her complaint was Kate's face is not pretty enough in this knitted version to make her want to stock the book.
I was not deterred, especially after hearing that when she recently make a knitted Little Mermaid, the face went totally wrong.
I'm looking forward to doing the embroidery on the faces and those TOTALLY CUTE teeny little hats.
I think the Duke medals and stuff are going to be a lot of fun.
This is a fantastic idea for a book, a knitting binge and a keepsake.
I will update this review when I've got a couple of the figures under my hat.
I was so glad that it uses DK, I'm no fan of 4-ply.
I might also make the little dogs into key fobs or bag charms..... oH WHAT FUN !!!!!
I have now received the book and am extremely happy with it. All the little clothes and the figures themselves are constructed by making 2 pieces. That means you won't need Double Pointed Knitting Needles ! How fantastic is that!
The increasing and decreasing methods are my favourites: K2tog/ SSK + KF&B/ M1F
As all the pieces (except for the shoes) use Double Knitting Yarn, that means you can get lots of colours from the TAPESTRY WOOL range at your local yarn store.
I'm so excited about this book because eventually I intend to use the pattern templates to create versions of my own family !!!
Fiona Goble has done a great job, but had to guess in advance what they would all wear, of course, so some of the uniforms and dresses are not what they actually turned out to be; however, judicious use of newspaper pictures of the wedding and different wools will get you there, if you really want to be 100% accurate.
A cheerful souvenir of a cheerful day.
