The Royal Wedding

Jobthingy Jobthingy
It is all the buzz on the tv as of late. Some people are waiting in anticipation for this day. They are going to stay up to watch the live airing at 3am (EST) on the 29th.

So Edenites, confess, who here is planning on staying up/setting the alarm to watch this wedding? And if you are.. why? Is it the fact that it is the Royal Family? For the dress? The hype? Enquiring minds want to know

see, I have a DVR and could set it but I have no interest. I could really care less. Plus, I can watch Entertainment Tonight that evening for all the important recaps like the guest list and the dress.

One thing I will say is that he used to look so much like Diana and as he gets older he looks more and more like Charles.

Don't plan on seeing any of it.

My mother's making me get up to watch it with her. Funny thing is that the wedding won't actually start until 11a GMT (6a EDT).

Any rate, I'd rather just watch it at the local British shop the next day (at a reasonable time) where they'll be serving cake and light refreshments and we'll share it with other anglophiles.

My Master says the UK is generally 'meh' about the wedding, but they do get a holiday that Friday because of it so that's good by them.

HA! Thats awesome. I would be fine with it also for that reason.

I have friends that live there also and really don't care.

I will probably watch. I am usually up at 3 am. I will watch and cry a little. Prince William~ Just kidding.



...well, maybe I feel a little sad. But happy for the couple, too! They seem in love and that is wonderful!

While I'm happy for the two of them, I have no interest in attending/watching their wedding. I do not know them. It would be like going to movie actors weddings. I do wish them the best!

I'm interested in seeing the dress, but that's about it, and I can find that online after the wedding

Eh. I don't really care.

Did any member of the royal family show an interest in my wedding? I doubt it. So, screw it.

My Man is so upset about people going insane about this "event." He really detests celebrities who have done nothing to earn their celebrity status and especially people who are billionaires have have done nothing to earn their billions of dollars. Your great great great great grandpa kicked some ass. So, you get to be a billionaire and be treated.....like royalty? For the rest of your life, and your kids do too? And their kids? And their kids? While other people suffer. I don't see the logic.

I don't understand the entitlement these people think they deserve. I'm not a big fan of people who get treated differently because they have inherited wealth and "titles" so it bugs me some. Not to mention that we can't even afford a simple wedding for our oldest daughter. Just a fucking party with some friends would be nice. Nope, not in the budget. They will have to get married at City Hall, maybe we'll go out to dinner. No fucking white horses and carriages and certainly no heaven knows how expensive dresses for my daughters. No 1000 foot walk to the altar in a cathedral. We'll probably spend less on the entire event than this woman (or should I say the people of England?) spent on her bouquet. Why? Because we aren't fucking, filthy, stinking rich. Nor do we waste money on such silly things as spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on ONE day. (Can you tell I REALLY don't like "Royalty?" The Revolutionary War people. We fought it to get away from being involved in this Entitled Excess and shows of disgusting, undeserved wealth.) I hope she steps in horse shit getting out of the carriage. I'd WATCH that.

So many people in the world who could eat for a year or more on what they will be serving and spending for this ONE wedding. How many hungry mouths could be fed, clothed, sheltered and taken care of with the disgusting amount of money these people will spend on ONE day? And, they'll probably end up not even working on their relationship and they will crash and burn like the rest of their stunted family. (And, we'll have to hear about it non-stop when he starts fucking other women. Jeez. History people.) With their fucking Nanny based cold as ice detached-mothering upbringing.

Seems a waste.

So no, I won't be watching. I don't even know when this "blessed event" is going to take place. If they were truly "good" people, they'd get married simply, have a small party with REAL friends (if they have any) and donate the rest of what they would have spent to the poor.

Jeez. I really hate what these people stand for. Fucking Waste and Excess.

Sorry to burst any bubbles. I think it's disgusting.

I watched Charles and Diana's wedding so I feel it's proper to watch her son's wedding also. I've always been interested in the Royal Family since I went to England in my teen's. I am excited about this wedding. Diana would be so proud of her boy.

Probably not- I'll catch the highlights the next day. I like my sleep a lot.

I have no real interest in it. It's a British thing, royalty is.

I think, for the Brits, it's more of a national pride thing, something that brings them together as a country. I'm not one to think less of them for it.

I'm not that interested in it, but I'll probably catch the highlights later.

I want to see it but I'm going to be out of town. Maybe I can convince the house sitter to record it.

I want to see it, but not so badly that I'd lose sleep over it. So I'll DVR it.

Sorry if I offended anybody. I wouldn't care if whoever was so gravely "offended" PMed me directly. Whatever.

Imperialism is one of the reasons the USA was started....to try to get away from it.

Whatever....

I tend to agree with this sentiment.

It's hard to stomach the spending of that kind of money while I sit and try and figure out how we're going to pay our bills, or put gas in our one shared car. While I think "Good for them" for getting married...*shrug*... I don't see the necessity for a wedding of this magnitude. It's a day, not a marriage. I guess it's from growing up wihtout much money, and having to work for everything I have or have ever gotten.


(On a side note, if it weren't for the points and gc's I wouldn't be able to afford any of the fun stuff I get here. I'm grateful for EF's generosity.)

I don't think it's cool that you were so judgmental of these two kids, especially William. He didn't ask to be born to royalty. Who knows, maybe he and his fiancée would prefer a small get together of friends in lieu of a huge expensive wedding, but that's just not how it's going to go down when you're royalty.

Also, William does a lot of good with his money. I don't get the impression he's some snobby imperialist who lords his wealth over others. As for his and Kate's longevity, they've been together like 8 years already. They just might last a good long while.

I do know about the Revolutionary War and why we wanted to get away from England. I'm not interested in the pomp and circumstance of old money. And my family has always been poor and struggled to make ends meet. But like I said, William does do good with his money like his mom did and I think that's an admirable trait no matter what family you're born into.

I can understand the feelings about the money that will be spent, but nobody seems to be pointing out that if this weren't the royal couple, the two in question would most likely have opted for a much smaller ceremony with the real friends that they do have. Knock on the government for having this be such a big deal, but the couple themselves, who have done their best to keep their privacy, don't like being followed by the paparazzi, don't like the attention that they do get, and both hold real jobs and earn their own money don't strike me as the type to want something so big and extravagant.

Prince William didn't choose the family he was born into, and has done good things without asking that everybody bow down before him for it. He willingly joined the military and would willingly be in active combat fighting for his country if his title didn't prevent him from it. And just because his parents got divorced and his father had an extramarital relationship doesn't mean that he's going to right off the bat. These two have been together for the better part of a decade, and they've thought long and hard about whether or not they're able to spend the rest of their lives together and to be torn down because of something they had no control over isn't fair to either of them.

I'm not interested in the wedding at all. I'm actually getting tired of seeing advertisements for the shows on almost all of the channels.

Nope, not going to watch it at all.
I'm not interesting in watching someone elses wedding. I don't know them personally, so I don't think it's any of my business.

We'll have to agree to disagree. One of his ancestors gave it all away to marry a woman he loved. Doing "a lot of good with your money" when you still have enough to show ostentatious displays of overindulgence means little to me. Someone with 2 pennies who gives one or both to charity is a saint. Someone with a billion dollars who gives a couple of million ISN'T. (Ask St. Theresa or Jesus or The Buddha, if you have doubts.)

Again, it's an opinion. Live like a normal person, or EARN the money you have, one will get respect from me.

As for "he didn't choose to be born into this family" he could well choose to live differently. Everyone has choice.

The rich have more choice than the rest of the world. They usually CHOOSE to keep their booty. Look at how English Royalty treated India, the budding US, or any of their other colonies; that's where a lot of the money came from. I would have the same opinion of my father if he CHOOSE to keep money that came to our family from organized crime. He CHOSE to not accept it. That's what good people do. He didn't choose to be born into his family either, but he made a choice to NOT be involved in evil gotten gains. These Royals are no different. Only my family never committed genocide nor did they have serfs or have Ghandi killed.

I don't think I was "judging" this prince. He put himself into the public eye. I have an opinion. Displays of over the top wealth, while most of the world are suffering are in poor form.

I don't think I'll stay up or even record it. Probably just watch bits and pieces from Entertainment Tonight, etc.

I did watch Princess Diana's wedding, and sadly her funeral back then.

I found out over the weekend that my mom and step mom are planning on watching it. They have booked the day off and even have a plan for champagne, scones and some other dish they found in a magazine.

I told them they are losers LOL

Agreed, I just want it to be over with already. I didn't mind until the media started overhyping it and now I am just so sick of hearing about it. I can't do anything without hearing about how much weight Kate has lost or someone trying to sell me a plate or a figurine.

My mother has decided that we're obligated to watch it as British citizens. Whatever, I'll watch it for her.
