Royal wedding? Didn’t we literally FIGHT A WAR to Declare our Independence from bowing and scraping before the noblesse oblige of royal pomp and circumstance?
The Windsor family has come a long way since their ostracizing of Wallis Simpson, the last American divorcée to join their family.
And the children of Diana, who was also treated pretty shabbily, have blossomed into caring, compassionate adults like their Mom.
But the fact remains that the ONLY thing they are famous for is that they were born into a mythology that exalts them based on a “royal” bloodline that decrees superior rank based only on the circumstances of their birth, not any actual achievement.
Why do people who have nothing to do with the wedding care about celebrity weddings? I mean, do you hear about the upcoming nuptials of some random person in your city whom you’ve never met and get crazy enthusiastic and/or emotional about it? When you come right down to it, its a couple of heads of state who are spending millions of dollars on a lavish celebration that could have gone to house the UK’s homeless and feed their hungry. Sorry, I wish them well but I could not care less about their wedding.
British history is fascinating but as far as ‘modern’ Britain goes, give me Coronation Street and reruns of ‘Last Of The Summer Wine’.
I’ll take Monty Python’s Flying Circus and Benny Hill.
I know some people eat the royals up but right now it’s just a bright spot in the dark news.
In all honesty, I care little. I do however, wonder about the rate of death among the elderly right. This wedding is so against their principles, I expect quite a few have had strokes or heart attacks or high blood pressure events.
I for one was all a-twitter!
Aww, it’s nice. And she’s a Babe.
Could not watch. The Mrs is a Scot. Free Scotland.
British royals do good things, but it was a lot of lmoney to waste.
