I’m watching the coverage just now, some interesting and original hats being worn 😊
I'm watching too, oh don't Clooney and Amal look lovely. Clarissa has a geat hat. But poor old Victoria Beckham looks sad.
Good weather for it.
Hope nobody gets assassinated.
Victoria Beckham is dressed for a funeral!

Do not underestimate the hidden power.
Governer general sacked the prime minister Gough Whitlam.
What if GG sack NZ prime minister.
Who can stop that?
The sort of deadlock that led to that incident couldn't happen under our parliamentary system, as we only have one House (whereas Australia has two, so there can be a deadlock between them).

Gah! They've said their vows like, three times already, and exchanged rings, Even George Clooney and Amal are looking a bit bored.
It's past midnight here and time for bed....
Wait, no, we're all singing God Save The Queen! I know some of the words.
And they're walking out of the chapel, wow she really looks like a fairytale princess.. diamond tiara!.. and it's time for bed really this time.

What about dressing up as a Nazi officer?
Some twenty years ago, Steven Spielberg wore a Nazi uniform at the Oscars when his film Schindler's List won awards.
Nein, Nein, Nein!! He wore a tuxedo.

Interestingly .. YouGov poll shows 66% of the British population was not interested in the wedding (page 4 last but one question)

Yes, I saw the sick bag on FB too - truly a universal platform but not noted for its elevated level of discourse. :tongue:

One of our political cartoonists was rather more inventively anti-wedding:
It's a fairytale for the modern age. An age filled with flying deathbots and murderous inequality https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfr ... inequality

I just cannot understand it. NHS is in bad shape and patients wait seven weeks to have gall stone operated viewtopic.php?f=31&t=29070 but one person due to his birth gets access to castle(s), chapel, cavalry, finances, entire state machinery for marriage [waiting seven weeks for gallstone operation is unthinkable in a third world country like India (for those with US style PPO health insurance) .. in that post I was annoyed about a 10 day wait for my sister while she was diagnosed properly]

This is caste system is it not?

No one visits London to catch a glimpse of balding and fat Prince Andrew as monarchists would have everyone believe .. tourists visit London for London Eye, British Museum and for the culture, food and sightseeing.

According to CNN William and Kate's wedding cost $32 million and Prince Charles did not pay for it inspite of being Britain's first billionaire prince

Are there no leftists or communists in Britain anymore?

Buckingham Palace is a tourist attraction.
This wedding also a part of the propaganda.

So the Buck House will fall down if there is no monarchy? The President of the Republic of Britain can stay there.

Obama with Indian President at Rashtrapati Bhavan (our equivalent of the Buck House) That is the 61st Cavalry, the largest operational mounted cavalry unit in existence, escorting the US President.

New UK President will use what Royal Family uses like ours does.

If you become the president of India, you will do the same.
Wouldn't you?
