The Queen’s Tweets

There’s no Twittering allowed at the royal wedding. But when you’re the queen, you make your own rules.

Guests of the royal wedding on 29 April will be prevented from posting live Tweets, after event organisers arranged for signal-blocking technology to be installed at Westminster Abbey.
