Royal Wedding

The latest news is that Meghan will be escourted down the Isle by Prince Charles. I find that a generous and gesture on the part of the British monarchy. I hope you will be watching the ceremonies.

I enjoy watching and hearing about all the royal goings-on. I'll probably tune in.

I actually got sick of the coverage already.
Besides, I'll be busy with my grandson's college graduation tomorrow.

I guess I'm the dissenting voice. I have no interest in watching British royalty coverage at all. The private lives of public people have never interested me.

If I remember my history classes, the people of this country fought a war to get the British royal family out of their lives.

I very rarely watch TV during the warm (i.e. non-football) months. I do read enough news to know that Prince Harry is marrying this American actress gal, and that's about the extent of my knowledge or interest in the subject.

*yawn* I'm with Andy.

I bet the Royals won't have anywhere near as much fun at the wedding as our families and friends had when Himself and I got hitched. The only "Royal" present that night had the first name of "Crown".

Congrats to him, roadfix. One down and how many more to go?

Oh heck yes I'll be watching the California girl become a Princess because she fell in love with her Prince Charming!! There's still enough little girl in this old gal to enjoy all the hoopla across the pond.

I'm sorry to disagree Di, but the last person in the world I wanted to see walk her down the isle is Charles...and I bet Princess Diana feels the same.

Well, I have two kids that have dual citizenship, one being British. So it looks like I will be watching. I just want to see what style she chose for her wedding gown.

So true Kayelle. Charles is the last person who should be walking anyone down the aisle. I would have preferred to have her be "the star" at her own wedding and walk down the aisle alone.
