Given how private Jecca Craig is, I don't think many of us thought we would see a picture of the heiress from her wedding at her family's Kenyan estate last Saturday. But, thanks to camera phones and social media, these things have a way of slipping out and the Daily Mail is running a picture of the bride in a simple white dress exchanging her vows with now husband Jonathan Baillie.

Prince William flew to Africa for the Easter weekend to attend the wedding, where by all counts guests were treated to a champagne reception Friday night. Some sources have recounted that Prince William only sipped on Coca Cola rather than indulging in the bubbly, although I hope he had at least one glass!
The Duchess took her little ones to enjoy their grandparents' company for the Easter holiday. We have sense of the weekend the little family enjoyed because Miss Pippa has already shared with us some of the family traditions that are enjoyed in Bucklebury. In her book Celebrate, Pippa wrote about an average Middleton Easter:
As children, the day before Easter we would make marbled eggs by hard boiling them, cracking the shells, and leaving them in water colored with food dye, which would seep through the cracks. It was always fun eating our creations for breakfast the next morning. We would look forward to a huge Easter egg hunt, which was (and still is) quite competitive in our household, and then have a family lunch, often with roast spring lamb, but always with plenty of chocolate before and after.
Since George is old enough to participate in these traditions, I am sure it was quite a Saturday of egg-coloring and an even more rambunctious Sunday morning egg-hunt. In 2014 paparazzi shots of William and Kate teaching George the ropes charmed hearts around the world, but this year I doubt he needed too much encouragement.
Prince William returned to Britain on Sunday and he is doubtless participating in more than one Easter week egg hunt!
