    I'd like it if you would spend your day off going to the wedding. It would mean a lot to Princess Diana who is in heaven. Bring a Union flag with you to fly as the happy couple goes by. And they'll probably be throwing lots of beads and trinkets like they do at parades.

    This is a once in a lifetime chance to be a part of history. We don't live forever, dear. When they refer to it over and over and over you won't be so annoyed. I was there!

    Being there in person is a lot different... though I really don't care about it, if I were in England during the wedding, I'd go and try to get a glimpse.

    For those who don't know, The Chaser's attended an APEC summit dressed as Osama bin Laden, were placed on a list of terrorists for Dick Cheneys visit to Australia and chased after a former Prime Minister with a chainsaw, so it should be interesting.
    Dick overreacting again... he takes that watch list way too seriously..

    They have titles... Many people still recognize and honor those titles. I really don't see out the people could strip them of their titles...

    I couldn't care less, I have no interest in the people, the wedding, the media hype, etc. I'm no more going to watch it than I watched the last over-hyped British Monarchy wedding.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: The Royal Wedding

    I replied YES - I do care; I care that we still have a monarchy in this country that that the tax payer should foot the bill when one of them decides to get married. The fact that this is happening when our Conservative (sorry, "coalition") government is emphasizing the importance of public sector cuts, makes it all the more revolting. Age of austerity? Yeah right, only if you happen to be poor.

    Some of them are however there have been reviews on expenditure. Certainly the design of Kate Middleton's dress has inspired people to design similar and for sales and at this time when the UK economy is slowly recovering a Royal Marriage is great for the economy.

    I'm not a royalist but they are part of the UK and part of our history and heritage, if I wanted to live in a republic I would leave - Australia, New Zealand and Canada are still keen on young Brits and have warmer climates than we have here.

    I'll be watching parts of it and I am proud of our tradition. I am curious though why anyone outside of the UK would want to watch the wedding.

    Re: The Royal Wedding

    I honestly don't care.

    I think its stupid that American television is making such a big deal out of it. They're not our royalty.

    It does seem that America TV is blowing this story up... You can't avoid it. I was a kid when Princess Di died, so it's not like I have ever really paid attention to them. She was more famous here than the queen...
