Thoughts? Opinions? Are you waking up really earlier to watch it?

Well, (And sorry if this offends anyone), this is a waste of time. It's the ceremonial time waster of the century, not the Wedding of it. The Monarchy is a joke, it means nothing, and it takes the world away from the real issues. However, I will wake up early and watch it, just to see what the fuss is about. Although the great Royal Divorce in 2024 will be much more interesting.

I just want to see her dress. I'm not really concerned with the wedding. I'm not invited, so why should I bother? I won't watch it. I like my sleep and don't feel like waking up so early to watch it.

Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.

Royal Wedding? Pffftt. If Paul and I were getting married,  *that* would be a true Royal Wedding. a-hard-days-night-paul-8

 

Edit : I have to say I want to see her dress. I hope it's not all sugar coat like Diana's… awful.

 

Edit 2 : If I were going to marry Paul I'd choose this dress.  a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

Who's getting married? And they're not married yet but they've already planned their divorce date, that's a bit weird, ain't it?

Price William and Kate Middleton. I made the divorce date up, because I believe it will end up as his father's first marriage to Princess Diana.

Princess Diana wasn't the princess of Canada, was she?

I like it, I get yet another day off school.

In six months, I have 15 days of school. I suspect these may be the best six months left of my life.

*9*

Edit: no, Diana was not Princess of Canada. By birth, she wasn't a Princess. She became Princess of Wales when she married Prince Charles. Canada is not a principality, though I believe the Queen is the official head of state as Canada is a Commonwealth nation.

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

No, she was first wife of heir to the British throne, Prince Charles. They divorced in 1996. She died a year later in 1997. But I would be surprised if the current marriage lasts.

Is Canada part of Great Britain?

I want to organize a British Wedding party. What kind of beer do people drink in England?

We do, but Canada is a former colony of GB, but the Queen/King is always Head of State.
As for the beer, Go with Guiness.

I'm probably not going to do anything. Maybe I'll compare it in my head to the royal weddings of the past, when marriage was only a power-gaining activity. 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Guiness it is. In Mexico people are making bets in when they're gonna divorce. Sad.

Well, the last Royal Marriage (Diana and Charles) had marital issues after 5 years only.

I'm pretty sure it had issues after only five minutes. Charles spent the night before in the Royal Train with his mistress (now wife), who was married to someone else at the time. They're a rum lot, them Windsors.

I don't think this one is necessarily doomed, though. They've been together for a while now, and rather than a marriage of two families with status, William's gone for a commoner (ie a normal person) whom he seems to actually love and respect.

Personally I've never cared for over-privileged aristocrats who don't serve any useful purpose (they bring in a bit of tourism money but that shouldn't mean we taxpayers have to fund their opulent lifestyles). What's worse is the deference they're given in the British media, which bears no relation to how many people actually feel. The BBC is perhaps the worst in this respect, I'm sad to say.

I won't be watching the wedding, just as I didn't watch Diana's funeral. I'm completely indifferent to the whole thing. I wish them well as people, but don't care for the pageantry. If the weather's nice Ellie and I are planning a walk in the park or on the beach to be as far from a TV as we can. At least we get the day off work!

Mith – people in the UK will drink anything, but mainly lager. Carling is the best-seller, followed by Foster's (they both taste rank to me). Me? Dry white wine if I'm trying to unwind, vodka if I'm trying to forget.

For many people (including me) it's just an excuse to have a party, who don't give two stuffs about the wedding apart from the fact that "kate middlingtons is rate buff like".

And being a student, I'll have a cider.

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

Thanks for the recommendations Joe. I might have a drink with the re-runs of the wedding the next day. I stay away from vodka, I don't like it much. But I'll see if there's a store that has those beer brands. They must be quite expensive though.

 

I think as history, the Kings and Queens of England are quite interesting. I love reading a lot about Elizabeth I and her Dad, and Queen Victoria, but give me any book or movie about them and I can devour it. I loved the movie The Queen with Helen Mirren and Michael Sheen, I was very surprised because despite the topic, the movie was very interesting.

 

At home we watch the weddings for the gossip factor… oh yeah my sisters and I should work for E! because we gossip about the dress, the hats, the shoes, the jewelry, the plastic surgeries.. everything!! I think with Camila and Charles blessing, all my sisters were at home, and we had so much fun checking the dresses and all.

 

And the hats! OMG. When I watched Diana and Charles wedding my Mom went nuts with the hats she was like "I want one of those for my wedding anniversary!!" In my city people don't wear hats. But I love them. Maybe when I go to England I'll get one of those fancy ones. I'll feel like Audrey Hepburn for a day LOL!!!

Zag & I do the same thing during the pre-race festivities for the Kentucky Derby. I guess these 2 events are not really that dissimilar - American Horses or British Cows.
