The Royal Wedding (Sigh)



Well as I am from the UK, it seems it is my job to talk about this event. I know not alot of people really care about it, apart from the fact we get a 4 day weekend! I do believe it is a good event as it gives us Brits something to be happy about, something to celebrate instead of being depressed with politics and the economy. However, I hate how the media is just cramming it down our throats! Everywhere you look POW William and Kate! Come on now I want to know something else other than this wedding.

I was also suprised that people outside of the UK are planning on watchthing the wedding, since in the USA you would have to wake up at like 2AM! I was also shocked that it is also getting lots of media attention outside of the UK.

So my questions are, are you planning on watching the wedding? What has the media attention been like in your country?

Thanks for reading!

  7. Watched the wedding, couldn't make it past half way through the ceremony ... got a little dreary, and you could even see it on the couple's faces that they were over it.

    Bet they can't wait to get away from it all, what a farce. Lot of the service was nice, the sermons just went on a little.

  8. No I don't plan to watch the wedding. While I do live in the U.S, I don;t watch much television to notice all the media coverage. It just seems like two celebrities getting married, eh.

  9. Had it on tv, passively watched it, was bit crap tbh, I pity the people who were random members of the public who were crying; their lives must be so boring.

  10. Good post, I personally refused to watched it but have taken advantage of the bank holidays.

  11. I believe that this wedding is overrated too damn much. How will it affect ANYTHING in the world? With all due respect, we all understand that the royal title has no real political or economical weight, they do not get to really decide about anything, so why bother us all so much with it?

    I'm not watching it. :D

  13. All are equal... I don't understand how it serves to have a monarchy. All life is majestic. Screw elitism & people think another could be more special because of a bloodline. Pathetic.

  16. I'm in the US, and the coverage over here is pretty obscene. I can only imagine what is going on there in the UK.

  21. I'm just wondering what kind of bachelor party "The Prince" had with all that paper he's got!?!?

  22. I was up when it was playing and started watching but gave up. It was booooring. Happy for the couple though.

  23. I went to my mum's last night, got lumbered with watching it this morning, some of it was pretty, but mostly tedious commentary and hours of boring footage.

  24. I find this entire thing stupid. Everyone at my school was talking about them yet they never did or probably knew them till yesterday or earlier today.

  25. 2 billion people watched it in tv, it's beyond comprehension.

  30. Eh, U.S. here, not a fan of any celebrities, really. I don't mind the royalty, but really, I'm more ashamed of all the attention people pay to it. But I find your stuff intriguing, I'll be looking forward to future posts.

  31. It's great that the British monarchy is still going strong, and this wedding just reinforces this. Britain without a monarchy is like Japan without an earthquake - it just wouldn't be the same.
