Couldn't agree more - programmes about when they were one, two, three, four........about their postman, cousins, florist, school chums - never ending.......yawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwn



Who would want to know about two lovely seeming young people (Diana did a good job, sowed good seeds, I think both men are kind hearted, caring, tactile people - albeit Harry has the life of Riley, being the spare) who will now live a cushioned life (funded by us idiots) travelling the world, having every whim attended to, never worrying about bills, or their health, or education.......everything done for them - lucky them - but why would anyone else want to know? It's beyond me....

We are very fortunate to be able to witness this historical moment in time. I will watch the actual service but not all the banal bits and pieces before and after!

It seems to be the "cool thing" to not watch the Wedding but how sad!

▶ Thank you for this exciting TV tip. I'm fully aware of the festivities and the celebrations of this institution - only interesting because it's medieval. Like burning witches, hanging criminals etc, which in civilised Western Europe we stopped doing some time ago.

I'm a royalist and proud of it. I shudder when one looks at other countries (in particular America) and see the shambles that surround Presidential elections and the people that are 'democratically' elected (allegedly in some countries, see Zimbabwe) not to mention the cost. No. I think the UK is damn lucky.

@MSG 21, while I think the backlash against the wedding is a bit silly and reactionary, and I fully support the royal family as a symbol, your argument would really only make sense if the Royal Family actually had any power. To suggest that the power struggles that define US presidential elections, where the winner is directly elected by the people (at least in the US you can vote for the man who will help you locally (congress) without having to support a man who will control the whole country (President) ) is worse than say, appointing someone to make all decisions for the entire country because their parents happened to be related to other people with 'good breeding' is crazy. I believe it was the British author Terry Pratchett that mocked the monarchist system saying (paraphrased); There are people who think that a man who got his job by understanding all aspects of a country and running it well should be replaced by a man who got his job by being born.

Bill - message 27.



Thanks for that. Yes, I remember only too well what Victoria (or Vicky, as I call her) said about Paul's shirt. Cheeky mare. Do you remember her face when I said it was by George (not "By George" you understand) She didn't have a clue who I was referring to. And she calls herself a designer?



See you on Friday.

Proud to be a royalist? Supporting a system ONLY based on when and where someone was born..?! Capacities of the monarch unimportant? Behaviour of the monarch 'by the grace of a non-existing god" almost unpunishable? No, thank you - mainly because a monarchy has nothing at all to do with a democracy.

I'm a republican because in a democracy there should be no other choice than a chosen head of state.

The uk is facing cuts in all sections of society, so lets spend a few million quid on a wedding bash for the son of DIANA who will if he takes after the rest of his family divorce in a few yearas , play away fairly soon if he is not already doing so like father like son ?



Now if they had a small family wedding in a private church then had announced it and said they realised how the country was being asked to make sacrifices so they had done so as well, there could have been respect due as it is another couple of pigs with thre snouts in the trough !

I really can't understand the attitude of some people on here, if you are not interested in the Royal wedding that's fine, your choice, just as others choose to celebrate it. Apart from the fact that the groom is a member of the Royal family and the wedding itself will be bigger and grander than your average wedding they are just a young couple who appear to be very much in love and happy with each other. Why can people not just wish them well, good luck and happiness, as any other young couple would be wished, Prince William has had enough sadness in his life, surely he deserves a bit of happiness, why should people begrudge him that.

I am not royalist but I do wish these young people all the very best for their future life together and find it sad that people are so bitter towards them for no reason.

How remarkable that a thread like this one, obviously not started for royalists (in whichever country!), attracts varied comments like 1 : "Don't watch it if you don't like it" and 2 : "We wish the young couple all the best etc".

@ 1 : That's how the thread started. So what's the point stating "Don't watch it if you don't like it"..?!

@ 2 : I've not read one comment against the future happiness of the young couple. But, yes, some people have something against the medieval institution the young couple represents. That's all.

Don't think - enjoy the fairy tale in one of the other threads, I'd say.

Thank you all - the experience has been very satirical! I have been laughing non-stop for the past 15 minutes, reading through all the posts in this threat (and I mean that in a good way...) The Royal Wedding must be good if it puts a smile on people's faces, but I can understand the reaction to "over exposure" given by the sad media in UK! Minus that, and I am sure it will be a grand event!

Message 54 - exactly. My comments have been tongue-in-cheek



I do take your point and agree that those of us here in the UK are at saturation point with the media coverage.



I'm sure it will be a lovely day for all concerned.



One thing I would say is that I am surprised at the lack of street parties being held in our area. I would have thought there would have been many more. Maybe it's just miserable old BSE

What an interesting thread!

I'll not be watching. I have nothing against them and wish them well (as i would any young couple I din't know and hadn't met). They both seem to have their feet on the ground and he has what anyone would agree was a 'responsible' and 'real' job. However, I'm not a monarchist and the amount of money being spent on this doesn't sit well with me.

On a related note to msg 51, I'm not British, I'm Scottish.

Hattikins - as Jeannie says - those of us here in England cannot avoid it - anyone would think the media had nothing else to comment on - every magazine, radio programme, television programme - is larded with information on tomorrow's events. As I said, I think they come over as a 'pleasant' couple - but they are not there because of meritocracy - but William, because of who his parents were. As to enough sadness - I lost my beloved dad when I was nineteen, the only comfort I have is I was the last person to speak to him, and cuddle him..........we could never have thought that night, we would lose him. Billions of people suffer the loss William did, but didn't have the extended family, support, finance and contacts to help us through such grief. I'm here in Windsor, and am also surprised that there aren't more street parties organised, considering we are in the shadow of the Castle, I wouldn't go anyway, but think it reflects general apathy.

Good God - it's a one off!



Why don't you all stop moaning, switch off your tv and get a life!



No-one is forcing you to watch it - go out instead!



Sometimes it is nice to watch this kind of fairytale and escape for a couple of hours.



I shall watch it and am proud of watching it. All you moaners - shut up and just don't watch!

Dutch Crusader........MYOB ! It's the British Royal family involved here not the Dutch (whoever they may be)

If some of you don't want to watch it...and I realise there are those who think this is very cool...then don't. But don't hurl insults at the rest of us. Would you really rather have President Blair and his first lady , the classy Cherie ? I don't think so.

▶ Ah! There we go again. It's only "us Brits" who are entitled to discuss "our British business", eh? Put your blinkers off. Your whole post mirrors blind, old-fashioned nationalism.

DC, there's nothing wrong with old-fashioned nationalism if it takes the form of pride in your country and a desire to improve the lives of your countrymen.

Unfortunately, too many conflicts are branded as 'nationalist' when in fact the true causes are religious/economic/territorial etc etc etc. Dare I look at Cyprus for an example of this?

But this thread is about the royal wedding, not nationalism, and I agree with you that everyone, UK citizen or otherwise, is entitled to have an opinion. After all, monarchists will tell you that it's their appeal to non UK people that makes the monarchy so 'valuable'. Personally, I think that's rubbish!

@ msg 70, AndyR: The voice of reason, although I completely disagree with your first words. Old Europe, on the brink of collapse, has no time left for any form of nationalism. Nationalism (and religion for that matter), in any form, has been the curse of Europe for far too long - history teaches the lessons to those who want to read and understand. The final collapse of Europe can only be postponed (countries with twice as many citizens as Ol' Europe are not waiting to take their place in history) if nationalism is banned and if countries finally learn to give up their selfishness and work together instead of celebrating their Britishness, Dutchness, or whatever ....ness. "....nesses" and "....isms" will bring Europe down. Hmmm, but you are right, this thread was about the Royal Wedding. So again: nothing against two young people, but the institution they represent should be abolished (in all European monarchies).

P.S. It's still "treason" when you say or write that in the UK!

Good luck to the young couple.

I think the country took the young boys to their hearts when their mother died so tragically so its great to see him happy and lets hope our press don't harass them to the extent that the pressure placed on them becomes too much.

Just for the record I will be painting the garden fence all day

Keep posting

Keep smiling

Royal families have always relied on the little people to tug the forelock to them in order to survive. After all, it was the little people's lands they seized in the first place.

The pigs are flying today, The UK Sun and the Cyprus Star are making a fortune on worthless pictures - and inside the palace they laugh all the way to the next crowning, wedding or funeral.

Sad cheering people outside the palace, who don't understand they're cheering their own ignorance.

Msg 84,

The trouble is too many people just can't think for themselves and so get caught up in the hype and propaganda. I suppose such easily manipulated people are more controllable by the authorities.

Although I have to confess to tippling some orange liqueur at the UN's Wolseley Barracks in Nicosia after a battle march with the Royal Netherlands Marine Corps UN on the occasion of their queen's birthday. To have refused would have seemed churlish.

But yes, let the Royal families come to a natural end, allow them to live their own lives and keep their honorific titles until death. Let's all live in grown-up democracies.

@ msg 89, Hector: Panem et circenses. The Roman rulers already knew how to keep the lower classes happy. In some countries not much have changed. Pomp and fairy tales. A royalist is someone who declares himself inferior to someone who was born in a royal room. People with a free spirit and a healthy understanding of a democracy don't accept it. Titles and standing have to be earned by study and qualities - no by birth. All monarchies are out of date (medieval relics) and should be abolished. Long live the republics of this world - with all their errors they are nearest to real democracy.

Ironically our own Royal family was so German it had to change its name in 1917 after we went to war against their compatriots.

>>The King and his family were finally convinced to abandon all titles held under the German Crown, and to change German titles and house names to anglicized versions.<<

Gawd bless you, Ma'am. Makes you proud to be Germ... er...British.

Hector Msg 89,

Some people swore oaths to serve the Queen while others made oaths to serve the people. Such are the constitutional distinctions in the countries comprising the present UK.

It's not impossible that future civil unrest could lead to British police being placed under elected government orders to assist in the orderly removal of the Royal family and the disarming of loyalist members of the armed forces.

I can't for the life of me think why anyone would put a monarch before their own community.

I'm just wondering why most ordinary average people don't think this way, DC. I have nothing against the Royals. They are not wicked but mere flawed organisms like the rest of us, except they were elevated in a different era and are now past their time.

Let this young prince and princess, who seem more connected to the people than the rest, take a back seat and let things come to a natural end. One day we'll wonder what all the fuss was about and how silly it all was.

How many times do we get the chance to see such as this. This is what we are all about, Feel sorry for those that are so self absorbed that they feel proud to run down what true Brits see as out heritage, Makes them feel big, mebbe. Mebbe the only thing that does, acting differently, get a life.

Today you have to swear the oath of allegiance to the Queen AND to take the pledge to the United Kingdom.

So if you are a republican and refuse the oath to the Queen, you can not become a British citizen.
