I’m keeping my fingers crossed, the big day is quickly coming up! Good luck to HRH and her team! My tip would be to wear the most comfortable clothes that are water/wind proof but breatheable and to put on some good music or perhaps some audio books. But only on the roads that will be free of cars and buses. Being safe on the road is the most important thing. Good luck!
