a-hard-days-night-paul-6Oh, mith! - That is hilarious because, if you've ever watched the pre-race coverage for the Derby, it's just like that video (sans the whimsy).

BTW - if you cross Abbey Road wearing one of those hats, I want to be the one taking the picture!

"Here comes the hat - doo doo doo doo. Here comes the hat. And I say it's alright..."

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

I watched the news today, oh boy...

Well, anyway, they had this whole segment on the wedding, and then it talked about how Louisiana's government is corrupt. There must really be something huge going on that they need to settle if that's all they have to talk about.

I think Joe is spot on, especially on their good. Charles, or whoever else, is a ceremonial figurehead who does no good for the people.

I know there are a few people who have suggested getting rid of the "monarchy" when the Queen dies. 

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

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Well, I agree with them. The Monarchy has outlived its welcome. However, there are legal reasons about why it is impossible.

Not going to watch it. Not wasting my precious sleep that I get very little of for some wedding in Great Britain. It is of no importance to me so I find no reason in being interested about it. Not sure why so many people are though and if I was the British royalty I'd want to have some privacy at my wedding. But let them do what they want doesn't matter to me because I'm not in the UK.

 

*17* Apparently Paul doesn't like it either. I forget was he invited to the wedding?

Yeah, doesn't interest me at all either. It annoys me how much the subject is on media, even though I live in Finland.  I'm more interested about the two little birds that are making nest in my balcony:D

Charles does a lot of campaigning to help the environment, and the royals tend to do a lot for charity as well.

Tourism. The benefits to our economy of having a
monarch with big showy weddings, a massive palace and some castles
outweigh the free money they need.

 

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

I have to disagree with you on all points. Charles is a loony who often doesn't know what he's talking about (eg endorsing homeopathy remedies, which are essentially overpriced water with no proven medicinal benefit). He should leave medicine to the medics, architecture to the architects, town planning to the town planners and climate analysis to the scientists. I'm glad he does work for charity but I'd be amazed if someone in his privileged position (he owns huge swathes of Devon and Cornwall, which brings in £millions each year) didn't feel obliged to give something back.

As for the tourism argument, well I visit historic sites when I'm in a foreign country, and nobody's felt the need to have people still living there. Why should Britain be different? If we got rid of the Windsors would people suddenly stop visiting Buckingham Palace? Of course not. People go to Hampton Court even though Henry VIII's no longer at the banqueting table.

AFAIK none of the top 10 tourist attractions in the UK have any connection with the royal family, with the exception of the Tower of London (built in the 11th century by William the Conqueror) and the V&A museum (in name only). We don't need these people, and they don't deserve to live a life of luxury at our expense. It doesn't help that they're unremarkable, thick people either.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

I don't find much interest in it at all. I know people that are skipping school just to keep updated on the topic. I'm American, and don't find much interest. It's a marriage, and I find it to be like any other. I don't really know the names of everyone, or the statistics, or whatever--and I don't care. I agree with Joe on the topic.

I just had lunch with all my family (today all Mexico is on holidays because of the Holy Week) and we were talking about the Royal Wedding, and one of my brother-in-law mentioned that souvenir of Kate and Will's faces on a plate, and one of my nieces said in a very disgusting way "Ewwwww How tacky to have a prince and a princess on your plates!! I mean they're not Disney, they're British. I thought they were not tacky" I laughed so hard and I told her "Trust me, most of British people don't give a damn" and she said "That's good. Imagine, eating and then you see that girl's face on your food… ugh". LOL!!

 

Edit : BTW So far Paul is not in the guest list. Mhhhhhhh

omg, haha. That sign is hilarious. There's the same age difference between Paul and I, but I would never date a guy that has the same name as my father, his best friend, and one of my uncles.

I don't care about Obama so why should I care if the Queen of England's son is getting married? I'll probably record it though, because it's part of my quest!!

I'm still a kid...so, I don't think I really care all that much about politics after having to spend seven months studying current events.
