It's been a day and a half, and I'm already tired of hearing about the "royal wedding". The bride is "adored" because the's seen as a "commoner". If millionaires are commoners, sign me up. Another inbred figurehead is getting married at the expense of the citizens, yay!!!

To our Brits, I can understand this being a big deal on your side of the pond. I'm speaking of the fascination with it over here.

The wedding will be spectacular. I admit I'll watch it if they televise it.

My mom and I got up in the middle of the night to watch Diana's funeral. I used to have a set of Princess Diana paper dolls.

While generally useless, there is something intriguing about the royal family.

"Commoner" simply means non-royal. He didn't meet her at a 7-11 over a Slurpee.

He re-used his mom's ring. Cheap bastard. :p

I didn't necessarily think that it was cheap to use Diana's ring, I thought that considering his parents divorced, it was bad taste and maybe even a bit of a curse to use her ring.

I have absolutely no use for royalty but this is just an interesting spectacle and I will happily check in with it from time to time. British royal weddings are massive revenue generators for the island. If there is any taxpayer funding for this (and I have no idea if there is), it will be more than offset by the huge tourism opportunity.

I hope that the wedding will be followed by a couple of cute kids and that this will will allow the Queen to skip her doltish son and retire in favor of Wils. He seems quite a bit brighter than Charles will ever be.

Its the same as it was with Diana and Charles (SP?)

Its all a fairy tale idea. To me, its all fine, there is football to watch, as well as other things. The elections are over, and I can keep up on politics VIA the web, so it doesn't bug me.

I remember watching Lady Di and Charles wedding when I was a kid. That was pretty extraordinary, but in today's glitz, this can't possibly compare to me.

I agree. I'm gonna wait for the sequel where he plays around with a swamp donkey behind her back and she says FU and devotes herself to charity work and banging an Arab until both get turned into a pink mist in a car wreck as a result of a race with a bunch of royal nerds that watched Part 1 and couldn't stop.

It'll be a remake, but it'll still be fun.

I had thought of sending Charles and Di a toaster as a wedding gift, but my dad talked me out of it. I just thought that it would have been funny. It turned out that it was the one thing that they didn't get, and not only would I now have a thank you card signed by both of them (hello, Ebay!), but I would have gone down in history as the guy who sent them the toaster. Plus, if they returned the gifts after the divorce, I'd have had that for Ebay, as well.

This time, I'm sending the toaster.

Miz Bubba will Prolly watch. I'll be in the room on the computer or on my little TV watching History Channel and listening on the headphones.

I'll prolly watch when the horses pull the big coach. And maybe to see what the bride is wearing. And the bridesmaids.

I LOVE this! I am an avid royal watcher and a bonefide member of the royal family. (my twig on the family tree is pretty far from the trunk though, so I doubt if I'll ever be called up to take over the crown. I'm a very distant Scottish relative).

I loved following Process Dianna. I can remember gathering in the smoker with about 15 friends in our dorm when I was in college to watch the royal wedding when Charles & Di married. I'm so proud of the way her two boys have turned out. Harry is a hoot!

Kate is a beautiful and very down to earth looking woman. Her and William will make a perfect King & Queen one day. I am hoping that Bonnie croaks before his mum does, so that we can just skip over him and his horse-faced adulterous wench. It would be a crime if Camilla is ever addressed as Queen. I don't like her. I bet it pissed her off that Kate got the ring and such a big deal was made of it on TV. I think it was a very moving thing for William to have given her his mother's ring.

I'm very happy for Wills and Kate and will be glued to the TV watching them. It's a wonderful nice story to me, in the midst of all the political crap we are constantly bombarded with. A very nice change of pace that warms the heart. They will be fun to watch.

I like that she's 28 and has been in the Royal circle for 8 years. She knows the drill and has obviously made a realistic choice about it.

Diana was beautiful but too young and too naive. Being the mother of potential monarchs and being the potential Queen of England takes a bit more thought than one would normally get from playing with pre-schoolers and being dressed fabulously.

Agree. I thought it was creepy in our local paper that showed a pic of Diana's hand with the ring and Kate's. I guess it took them 8 years to get together, so she just took the ring.

She seems a nice enough young woman. As far as her parents being millionaires, it sounds like they were entrepreneurs and got it the old fashioned way---they earned it.

Their university at St Andrews, Scotland is beautiful. I saw it when I was in the UK 10 years ago. The town is beautiful. At least Kate is educated and not some inbred royal.

I don't know that Diana was that naive. She certainly knew how to manipulate the media, and her affairs were no less egregious than his. Frankly, I thought that she and Charles deserved each other.

I think she was naive going into it - not later. Diana's big problem, from my perspective, was that she could not accommodate herself to her role. She believed that marrying Charles was like marrying Tom or John.

I seriously doubt that official royal liaisons have ever been about boy-meets-girl-cue-orchestra-and-puppies. When these people are genuinely in love, it's still a much more stressful relationship (think Victoria).

If Tom or John had ears that could support a 747 in flight, yes. Seriously, the man looks like a Cadillac with its doors open.

I was thinking more along the lines of Henry VIII. Victoria actually had a wonderful relationship with Albert, and his early death was a genuine tragedy for her and all of England.

Nearly three decades ago, my mother hauled my ass out of bed at 3:00 in the morning or something like that because I was the only one in the house qualified to operate the VCR (Dad was out of town on business and she refused to trust the record timer). So I had to sit up all night and record all 736 hours of the Charles and Diana wedding live from Westminster Abbey, just so that my mother could later fast forward through the boring bits (which was about 735.75 hours' worth) and re-watch the same bits over and over again. The same bits that were shown on TV over and over again anyway. :rolleyes:

I unintentionally wound up watching an NBC bit on this couple tonight (Dateline?). I have to admit that I found it far more interesting than I thought I would. The princess-to-be is definitely a very pretty girl, but she doesn't have that "china doll" appearance that Diana had on her wedding day, which is quite endearing to me: she looks like a real woman, instead of some airbrushed babe out of Cosmo or whatever. Pretty, but real. He apparently learned a lot from his mother, and actually lived like a normal person, cooking for himself in college and such.

So this apparently is not Charles and Di all over again. Indeed I expect it to be quite different.




But I'll be DAMNED if I'm going to get out of bed at 3:00 in the morning to watch some overblown ceremony on TV. If they were smart, they would quietly go out to Green Park incognito and elope before anyone even knew what was happening. That's what Mrs. Wood and I did (different park, not royalty, but we did indeed just sneak off to a park and get hitched; set a record of two minutes and seventeen seconds from "Dearly Beloved" to "You may kiss the bride"), and ten and a half years later, I wouldn't trade that day or how we did it for anything on earth.

SR and I didn't elope, but did have a lovely quiet little wedding at our home in St Louis, with just immediate family and a few friends. We had two patios, so used the one that was surrounded by perennials to have the ceremony and our guests stood in the yard and on the other patio. Weddings don't have to cost a fortune to be meaningful. Some of the most expensive that I've attended ended up in a short marriage.
