Do you care about the royal wedding?

    Maybe it's because I'm from the US, but I just don't see the importance of royal weddings.

    Do you care about the royal wedding that is coming up?

      I care, although I have never been to the UK.  I love to follow stories and events surrounding the late Princess and her boys.  It is fascinating to me, as it is not something we have here in the US. I guess you could say I would be one of those tourist who would want to tour the palace, see the prince's and enjoy hearing about the pomp and celebration on such a grand scale. : ) I think it will be quite beautiful myself.  I want Diana's boys to be happy!  They had a wonderful mother.

      To be honest - no.

      Too much going on in my own life to consider what's happening in theirs. Maybe I'd be more interested if I lived in the UK. Besides, when you've seen one, you've seen them all.

      I couldn't care less. The media thinks we should care. It's all they ever talk about.

      Not much...it is nice to hear they are happy and i am glad they are in there way of having their own family. If there is a chance to see the event without stress and hectic then i am glad to watch and feel the live event, but it is not a must.

    Oh a couple of channels are covering all the hype here in the U.S re The Royal Wedding, and who doesnt like a wedding complete with all the bells and whistles....

    For me personally ,Im looking forward to seeing one of Diana's boy's get married-how I wished she were alive to be part of it all.

    I wish them both well smile and I hope they like the toaster I sent over (hehe)

    Well I'm English and living in the US, so of course I think the Royal Wedding is very important - of course I do have a few ROyal Wedding hubs up and running LOL so I might just have a different reason for thinking them important than most.

    Being serious - there are many that believe there shouldn't be a Royal Family in the UK, but they bring in so much tourism to the UK that it would be a shame to see it disappear. Royal Wedding fever will hit the US at some point I am sure!

    I care enough to post on this thread I guess...lol  But, the short answer is not really.  Beyond hoping that the two of them have a beautiful, fruitful, and successful marriage like I would wish for any couple getting ready to tie the knot, it's not actually on my radar.  As to it's impact on the world in general?  Don't think there really is one.  They're a young couple about to do what lots of young couples do.  God bless them, and I wish them the best.

    Well I am so excited. She is so beautiful and I can't wait to see it all happen. It just amazes me she will walk into a church a regular girl and walk out a real life princess.

    Its what fairy tales are made of and that is why royal weddings will continue to be fascinating to watch, every little girl dreams of having a beautiful wedding and marrying a prince.

    Er, oh dear, here comes a sourpuss.

    I am not a fan of the Royal Family.  Because no matter how hard you work you aren't going to get to be one.  So it's just who your parents were.

    Seems the wrong message to be sending to kids.

    So as far as the Wedding is concerned.  For me - big deal.  I have no interest in watching some born with a silver spoon in their mouth kid get married.

    As for tourism.  Apparently Legoland gets more tourists than Buckingham Palace or whatever.  So we should have a plastic brick as our new, and more intelligent, figurehead.

    I'll stop now.

      Think on the bright side - It does distract from the increase in VAT, the loss of 300,000 jobs and the soon to be announced war in Libya/Tunisia/Some other North African country with oil and the bank CEOs getting paid vast sums of money out of your taxes to run the country's debts into the stratosphere.

      Who can worry about this meaningless nonsense when the Royal Family is putting on a show for us? sad

      I vote for the brick.

        Nice one Mark.

        In three years time.. brick marries another brick.. people celebrate.

        tbh - I think the time has passed for this stuff.  I suspect more people were pleased by Charles and Camilla getting a paint splattered car than will be holding street parties.

        We're revolting!

            Let's hope the happy couple are blessed and we find out soon.  A Royal Birth!

            For those who don't live in England it is hard to imagine quite what a Street Party is like.  Take the most flamboyant Brazilian carnival atmosphere and go to the absolute opposite end of the scale.

              I had a day off school for the last spectacle. I cried when he muffed his lines in church.
              It is all garbage. I met Diana when she was 16 and she was pointed out as "the next queen of England."

              They met magikally a few years later and it was all over the news papers as  a "chance meeting," and "love at first sight."

              "Fairy Tale Romance," is the one that tugged my heart strings.

              Gawd we are gullible. She never did learn to cope with the level of deception needed. sad

              Here in the South of France there are plenty of wealthy Royalist ex-pats retired from raping the working class - so I expect to get to go to a good street party. lol

                Well yes, there is the day off of course.  Can't say they do nuffink for us.  There's a good hubs worth of moaning in this, but I considered it and couldn't be bothered.

                I'm still, despite myself, impressed that you met Diana.  Shoulda got in there Mark.  Next Queen and all that.

    I follow it somewhat.  I'll probably watch the highlights. Do I care?  Sure. It's news, and no different than the celebrity hype.

    I sat through the whole Charles/Diana wedding because I was home with my premie baby, so I was in a "tv-watching" phase at the time.  Sitting through one Royal wedding on TV is enough for one lifetime, as far as I'm concerned.  It was nice enough (needless to say), but I'm not stuck home with a baby these days.  Besides, between the whole thing with Diana (from then to her accident), and the whole things about Royal divorces and antics; I'm pretty "all Royaled out".  Of course, being from the US, I suppose I went in with only limited interest, back in 1981, anyway.  (Another difference is that I've got a wedding coming up for my own daughter, so maybe everyone and everything else, of course, pales in comparison. smile )

    Absolutely! I am also in the U.S. and loved Princess Di. Who do you think our mother Country is? Watching her son it get married is really an  honor and blessing, but then again my natural father's family was from Wales and my grandmother's father was from England so I could be a little partial. big_smile

    I will def watch it. It brings back memory of a Welsh gentleman whom I have fond memories, but he is no longer here, that loving man who taught me how to love is resting in peace. Also, I like to watch one of lady D son get married.

    As a staunch Republican, I agree with the Two Marks (HP's answer to the Two Ronnies big_smile)

    Couldn't give a crap about a bunch of inbred buffoons - I can avoid the BBC for a couple of weeks, but I sadly suspect that Greek TV will also show the wedding. Phil the Racist is Greek, after all hmm

        Hi aka-dj - Likewise

        The good thing about photos is that they don't age - I have less hair and more wrinkles since the avatar picture was taken!

        I see that you are still an international man of mystery big_smile

        Bit of both, really - trying to make a few dollars here and there, but I also find that the forums have declined over the past year or so. Too many people want to talk but not listen: there is no good debate to be had here - it is much more rewarding to have an argument with Kostas the Goat Herder in the local taverna.

        How is life treating you? smile

      Lol - Two Ronnies, Republican version. Some nice lines in that post Sufi.

      Mark and I should do one of those Two Ronnie songs - dress up in drag and prat about.

      Or we can all watch the real thing next week.

      I'll be glued to my TV.  It's the only way my wife can get me to watch it.

    I don't care enough about it to tune in to the wedding on television or even read an entire article about it.  But, being a girly girl who enjoys looking at pretty dresses (I watch the red carpet parade before the awards shows), I'll be looking at photographs after the fact, just to enjoy the aesthetics of the spectacle.

    The Middle East of course!

    This should be so romantic with a team of royal protection officers following them around. Not!
