I guess it’s too late to get out in front of this royal wedding thing, huh?

Well be that as it may, KQED sent its official Royal Wedding correspondent, news intern Becky Palmstrom, to the British Consulate in San Francisco to check out the action. And action there was. Below are her interviews of a couple of people who were on-scene to register their good wishes to the royal couple in an official book, plus one with the press people whom she made answer a question about all the hype. (Don’t worry, they were prepared.)
