CHICAGO - Americans swept up in royal fever woke long before dawn to eat full English breakfasts and attend British-themed parties across four time zones as they watched Prince William marry longtime sweetheart Kate Middleton.
The parties began as early as 4 a.m. on Friday on the East Coast, an hour before the wedding started across the pond in London.
Restaurants and bars from coast to coast hung Union Jack bunting and hosted gatherings to watch the wedding on live TV, complete with royally named cocktails, including "The Windsor Knot" and "The Bitter Queen."
A big cheer went up at Walt Disney World's party in Orlando when Middleton emerged from her limousine.
Hundreds of guests were invited to wear prince and princess attire and watch in the park's Wedding Pavilion.
