    Just in time for the Royal Wedding, Tuesday night was the kick off of the fifth annual BritWeek.

    Stars, including Sir Ben Kingsley, gathered at the British Consul General's official Residence in Hancock Park Tuesday night.

    The goal: to honor the strong influences that the British have on Southern California.

    The invitation-only Royal wedding themed event was said to include a special display of wedding gowns by famed British designer Bruce Oldfield.

    Events are scheduled throughout the week and into next month.
