    I know that some are not interested about the upcoming Royal wedding and some are just being discreet not wanting to show what seems to be everyone's interest lately but silently updating themselves to the topic.

    From different part of the globe people are talking about this Royal wedding and I want to directly hear some personal thoughts and our reactions about this. Let me hear form you people!

    Thanks!

      I think that it is much to do about nothing.Who benefits?

      What changes for those who are oppressed in that country? If nothing, then why care.

      I  think the news coverage is a bit much...But i do feel a sense of "Motherly Pride" about the fact of Prince William is getting married....Due to the fact I remember when his Parents were married I was one of the millions watching every step......I like the whole feeling of" The Royal Family"......and it still exisit..... Even in this day & time...So I'm looking forward to "watching" the entire wedding...Many blessings for them.....wink

        I know how you feel that's probably the reason why I also want to watch the wedding.

      One compound word:  over-hyped.

      I'm paying some attention, but really wish that the media didn't feel a need to talk about this just for the sake of talking about it.  Endless speculation and repetition do get tiresome.

    The whole world was England once. The residual loyalty still shows in many people and that is how the British royals become their own royals. Hence the interest and celebratory mood.

    Its a bunch of crap about some pretentious people that dont deserve what they have. They should do away with the royal family altogether.

      maybe it will be worth it,  if they will just give their riches to those who are in really need.

    I think the wedding is great for the two of them, but i can not help but to think of the good folks in England who get stuck with the price tag.

      I'm more upset for the people in Scotland and Wales who don't give a dm about the royal family but who will stick be stuck with picking up their share of the bill - and it's massive - something like $45 million.

      The English go mad for the Royal family with street parties and God knows what all planned for the wedding.

      Even here in Spain, the expats are throwing a street party with the wearing of fancy hats, live music, buffets etc.

      I won't be going, nor will I be watching it on TV, unless the Spanish news shows it, in which case I'll just be looking to see if the queen's makeup is slipping.

      I actually think that no one benefits this big wedding except themselves the royal family.. but for some of us..all we could get is just a little entertainment. :-)

    I don't follow the wedding updates very much but I know many are very interested and hang on every bit of news.

    I don't see why the Brits shouldn't have a little party and show their traditions to the world. 45 Mil. isn't really a lot these days and it's a welcome relief from war news night after night.

    Go Brits - have a ball!

    1. hannah08 profile image60
      hannah08posted 6 years ago in reply to this

      This is all our concern the price tag of the wedding. We all felt that it's too much..and it can make a lot of difference only if the funds will be use in far more important things.

  7. rebekahELLE profile image92
    rebekahELLEposted 6 years ago

    I'll be watching. I think I feel like salcherry... we watched the boys follow their mother's casket. I wish him and new wife much deserved happiness. It can't be easy being in the royal family.
    The price tag? ridiculous!
    But I do have to admit, watching those tea pot/tea cup cakes being decorated, and hearing the symbolism of each iced flower on the cake whet my appetite to see more. I hope it is a happy marriage.

    1. hannah08 profile image60
      hannah08posted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Definitely  I will watch it too. I am not a big fan and I still feel bad about $45M it's  too much, but also I 'm just an ordinary girl who's interested in weddings and fashion and I just want to see how the royal family will dressed up :-)

    I watched the wedding of Prince Charles & Diana while in NZ , watched as they got divorced , was at Buckingham Palace the week before her funeral .
    After seeing so many divorces after very expensive flashy weddings it is hard to get the same excitement as when I was younger,
    For my 2nd time around we had a quiet beach wedding and feel some spend far too much on just the one day .
    However as a mum of 3 girls I feel sorry for William not being able to have his mother there and hope they have a nice day & stay together .
    Will get to see some of it as my Auntie where we are staying will watch it , funny enough we are going to a wedding the next day !

      After the wedding let's see what's next..hope Prince William and Kate's wedding won't end up just like the others who spend million of dollars for their wedding, only to divorce in awhile.

    I think it's wonderful that Camilla is a concubine by birth.

    It is all glossed over here: http://www.douglashistory.co.uk/history … amilla.htm

      So, it's quite possible that Charles is a half-second cousin once removed of Camilla. Interesting.

    It's too much publicity for a wedding..we treat royalty like celebrities today..
    royalty has no place in today's society..

    I hope the two of them have a wonderful day. So what if the wedding costs a small fortune. Judging by the level of international interest, much of the expense will be mopped up by extra tourism anyway. Hotels, restaurants, caterers, gift shops, they'll all be cashing in. It's a great excuse for a knees up, and in the current climate of doom-laden misery, I for one say good luck to them!

      If $45,000,000 is being spent on them, I certainly hope so!

    Thanks to the wedding everyone in the UK has been given a day off work. Great.

    It may cost a few million to the tax payer but look at the huge income to the tourist industry; that's got to be a good thing.

    The royal family costs each UK taxpayer 87pence per year. What a bargain when one considers the wealth in tourism and trade opportunities with the Commonwealth. So would we rather have a President? Nah, I'd rather have the royals.

    Well what an event that was.

    Great choice of hymn "Jerusalem" at the end. It serves as a reminder to all the World's gathered leaders and media that though we may no longer have an Empire, in terms of culture, pomp, majesty and style, Cool Britannia still rules the world.

      Jerusalem is one of my favourites too. Always reminds me of last night at the proms. William Blake certainly knew how to pen great verse.

      Beautiful dress and it is great to see a happy occasion, where all people want to do is enjoy themselves and wish the happy couple well. Shows that we do not have to be fighting all the time.

    Of all mornings I had to drive my sons to the airport and missed the actual ceremony, so I'm currently watching the recording, now it is at the arrival of the Queen. Now I'm quite excited!  I've seen the before and after, now the young bridesmaids are getting into the cars.

    off big_smile 

    I'm so happy for them and wish them much happiness.

    Nice rich people entertain themselves and the rest of the world in style. Hope they'll last together. Whether or not we need royalty, it's a tradition. I love when people keep nice traditions. In Russia after revolution they brutally killed all their royalty including a small child. Nothing to be proud of.
    Good old England keeps good traditions. Nice, very nice. I love it.
