IN PICTURES: How Newham celebrated the royal wedding
Thousands took to the streets of Newham to celebrate the royal wedding.
Street parties were held in dozens of locations across the borough — from Stratford to Silvertown and Maryland to Manor Park — to mark the marriage of Prince William to Catherine Middleton.
Celebrations were also held in pubs, clubs, homes, schools and workplaces — with some early birds opting to mark the occasion a day early, on Thursday.
Mayor of Newham Sir Robin Wales said: “I am delighted so many residents took the time and effort to organise parties.
“The council joins them in offering congratulations to Prince William and Catherine Middleton and hope that have a long and happy life together.

“We tried to make it as easy as possible for people to hold royal wedding parties with support from us through small amounts of funding, free bunting and help to close roads.
“People of all ages and cultures got together and had fun. It’s a great way to show how we’ll be celebrating when the Olympic Games come.”
