      It was a marvellous spectical to watch, but I'm left with one question, Who's paying for everything?

        I don't know about "everything", but news people made it a point to say that the bride's family kicked in quite a chunk.  I guess the idea was supposed to be to make things more like they are for "non-royal" people, when the bride's family (often) pays for all or most of it.

          I'm sure it cost a lot, but didn't a lot of the money that was spent go to businesses and suppliers of the stuff they needed, therefore an economic boost for some? Plus the thousands of tourists who brought in more revenue for the population..plus, plus...think of all the the Will and Kate Pez dispensers they sold.
          Look at Merlin Frazier's take on this in his hub"Oh, There Was a Wedding Today?"

      They looked fantastic and I couldnt help but think of Diana and how proud she must be of William,indeed both of her sons.

      Aww magical ,just magical smile

        I'm sure those sentiments were held by many. I choked up a few times, especially when the two sons walked in together to the place that holds Diana's memories.

        Let's hope this marriage will go the distance. They look so perfect together. I hope the paparazzi respect the boundaries that have been put in place!

          Oh I couldn't agree wtih you more (re paparazzi).

          RebekaElle I didnt see the wedding in its entirety and missed that part you spoke about..aww..
          When did they do that part and maybe I can search for it.
          Thanks.

            I watched the NBC recording which covered extensive before and after activities. William and Harry entered the Abbey together after their arrival and it just touched me to see them grown up, so gracious and looking so amazing in their official uniforms. I thought of how much Diana loved her sons and how proud she would be.

            Maybe you can find the recording on the NBC website?

    I didn't plan to watch it, but I got up right at 4:00 a.m. on the dot, so I put on the TV.  For two hours they were pretty much showing parts of Charles' and Diana's wedding, which (particularly because it was still dark out) I wasn't in the mood for.  (Looking back over thirty years isn't necessarily the cheeriest thing sometimes.)  Anyway, I turned off the Charles/Diana portion, but at 6:00 I figured I may as well put the real matter at hand on.

    I thought it was nice.  They looked nice.  The whole thing was "all nice".  In an world with with so much unpleasantness on the news (and everywhere else), I'll admit it was pleasant to watch something happy going on.  I turned it off toward the end of their carriage ride.  (There's only so much watching-the-same-two-people-in-the-same-two-outfits that I have patience for.  smile  )

    I didn't watch it. I don't have a television at the moment and my broadband isn't good enough for any streaming TV.

    We recorded and are still watching it. It was an absolutely beautiful wedding. Princess Di would have been so proud. The hats the some of the women were wearing were beautiful. There was a humorous side when they explained that many would come to the wedding in Motor Coaches and they were not to call them buses. I enjoyed a laugh with that one. smile

    Seriously, our government is so much in debt as it is and it is obviously the British tax payer (me, and so many others) that are funding this near-50 million extravaganza. Sure, it was pretty, but at what cost to an already billion plus in debt country?

    They picked the best time to have their day......... OH well, at least they're happy.

    you know what, two billion people around the world watched it, if they all paid one penny the whole thing would be paid for.  The amount of money brought into the country because of tourism also.  Now they cant go on honey moon as he has to work, they both work, England is looking up.....

      It was a great spectacle for those two billion as well and for once showed Briatin in a positive light

    Absolutely.......Every girls dream to marry a handsome Prince.... That guy has everything, surely he is his mothers son....

      I loved the passage of scripture they read also........

    some lovely expressions, like rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those that weep, also, as far as it depends upon you be peaceable with all men.

    Shame they got so excited about the fighter planes, and were in military uniform, but ah history is history...... Living in Ireland, and hearing how much the Irish hate the English, on a daily basis, i was surprised he had the Irish Uniform on...... I do not think people living in England realise the hatred Irish have for everything English.   Pity as English people on the whole love everything Irish.  Time to lay Oliver Cromwell to rest.  The Queen is visiting Ireland shortly..........

    I watched the royal wedding and thought it was absolutely beautiful. You could see how comfortable William and Kate were with each other and how much in love they are. The only thing I found really annoying was the media's constant blabbering about Kate's dress and the comparisons to Grace Kelly's.  Please, this day had absolutely nothing to do with Grace Kelly and the dresses didn't look anything alike except for the lace sleves which are quite common in wedding dresses.  This was Kate and William's day, not Grace Kelly's or Charles and Diana's.  Kate is a beautiful, intelligent young woman in her own right, she should not be compared to the shy, naive Diana, nor should she be called "a young Grace Kelly."

      I am not sure where you live, but I did not hear Grace Kelly mentioned once in the version of the wedding i watched.  she had Di's wedding ring, the queens tiara.....  but she is a different generation than Di.  William however blushed like his mum after the kiss.... aw bless him.

      I hope they don't name the child Diana, that would be awful for her to have to live up to. Jackie Kennedy said if she had known what would have happened to her husband she would not have named her son John Jr.

        Well Diana was worth looking up too, she pioneered the way for the rest of the Royal females in many ways.
        I think it would be a fantastic honor.

        On the other hand I remember when Beatrice was born and named , I cringed...thought ,poor kid with such and old name like that. roll
