Not a huge Fan of "Royalty" but it seems strange that no one in the UK is doing a special event station.
A QSL card for that occasion would be pretty cool, I like both of them because they seem to be down to earth people.

There looks to be a couple or three, although there does not seem to be any special certificates and one is e-qsl only.  See:

http://www.radioham.info/?p=33612&utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=gb1wk-special-event-station-29th-april-2011

You'll see the gb1wk announcement and links to two others.  GB4HRH is on qrz.com.

Good luck and 73,

Richard

I sure as heck would not want my Tax dollars spent on this but hey the Brits love it,  and since they pay the Bills who am I to say anything.

Anyway I snagged GB4RW on 80M Grin It was not easy, between the Lightning crashes and  normal 80M QRN, his signal was very low, about 34. it took many repeats to get the info, but I am looking forward to eventually getting a QSL card.

It's their customs and 1,000+ year traditions.  If they didn't want to do it they wouldn't do it.

On the SE station thing, it would be very cool if they did a full color certificate and sent in a reinforced tube.  That would look awesome on the shack wall and be worth the cost.

English hams were allowed to add an "R" to their call to indicated a Royal Wedding QSO station.
I worked GR0RPM (Nigel), who normally is G0RPM, on the wedding day and he said he was making a Royal Wedding QSL card especially for the event.

GB4RW also has a nice Wedding QSL card displayed on his QRZ page.

All British radio amateurs were Wink ...English, Scottish, Northern Irish, Welsh, Manx, Channel Islanders
The 'R' suffix can be used up until the 9th of May for those who applied for it.
