Maybe it's because of the part of the country I live in. I don't know but I never really think of Great Britain as some foreign. country. Like Spain. I think of it like New England or something. You're not going to see Southerners vote Canada as our best friend. They don't know anyone from Canada. The South thinks it is UK. The North thinks it's Canada. I'm remembering a survey posted here years back.
So to me, the prince of New England is getting married and he's kin.
