Do you have Elizabeth II in your dolars? Because as Dr. House said "You put the Queen in your money. Your British" a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

 

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

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.

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!!!
