RandomAnthony | 14536 comments ...esp. when CNN covers it for thirty of the forty-five minutes when I'm on the elliptical at the gym.

However, did you know that according to some British rule he had to ask the Queen if he could get married? That's what they said on CNN, anyway.

The British and their royalty are weird.

I already hate this wedding and the fact it will be on the news.

That is all.

Phil | 11694 comments THIS IS NOT NEWS. IT IS GOSSIP.

Yes, I was yelling, just like I did to my father-in-law when it came on his TV.

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments yells at Phil's father-in-law's tv, too


message 4: by Ken (new)

Ken (playjerist) | 721 comments So, does the priest say to Kate Middleton at the wedding, “Do you take this anachronistic institution as your lawful wedded husband, to live in the holy estate of meaningless succession until the lady with the dowdy hat croaks?”


message 5: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments I don't know that the Queen will ever die. Isn't she, like, 247?


message 6: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments Maybe they're doing a Weekends at Bernie's with her...


message 7: by Phil (new)

Phil | 11694 comments When the matron with the dowdy hat croaks, doesn't William's FATHER take over?

I know what’s in that frumpy little square purse of hers: the royal rigid female pleasure device.

::yawn::

Hang on I should pay attention, this is our future King we are talking about.

There was some question there for a while about Charles’ eligibility after he married what’s his name, Camilla. I believe the Queen considers Charles too conspicuous a nutter ever to be King, though it seems to me that such an entirely superfluous position requires a person of the highest bat-shitedness.

I think there us some other law or reason or something as to why charles will never be king.


message 12: by Jan (new)

Jan | 241 comments I like the pomp and circumstance of the actual wedding day. It will be somewhat offset by the many, many days of pre-publicity. I just hope Prince William doesn't treat his wife like his dad treated his mum.


message 13: by janine (new)

janine | 7715 comments charles is first in line, yes, but he might choose to abdicate because he's not very popular with the brits. and from what i know from the way it goes here, you have to ask permission from the government too, because if you don't you won't be allowed to become king/queen.

i don't think there's anything wrong with royalty. yes, it's mainly ceremonial, but it is something you share as a country. and they probably cost the country money, but a lot of members of the royal family have a day job.

Dr. Detroit | 6031 comments I could give three shits about the royals but if they modeled a reality show around them, I'd be on it like ugly on a gorilla.

That is one seriously dysfunctional (and seemingly inbred) tribe right there.


message 15: by Jim (new)

Jim | 6485 comments I wouldn't even watch it then Clark. Not sure that I understand having royalty that holds no power. There seems to be no purpose other than being rich figure heads.

Well, I for one think Prince William is cute, and I'll tune in for all the wedding preparations and the pomp and circumstance of the wedding day. When is it, anyway? 2014?


message 17: by janine (new)

janine | 7715 comments spring or summer 2011.

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments I LOVE ROYAL WEDDINGS!!!

:D



message 19: by Joanne (new)

Joanne (bonfiggi) So tiresome, I don't care at all.


message 20: by Sally, la reina (new)

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17346 comments Mod
Well, yes, Bun, that makes sense. But I think what I was thinking of was just hearing about how because of his age, and the Queen's long reign, they figured that she'd still be alive when Charles' sons were of age and that they'd just be a more natural next place.
It isn't based in reason, my logic.

Hopefully Kate's dress is more tasteful than Diana's monstrosity that needed around 10 not-so-small children to carry the train.

Oh really? Can he just say "naw, no thanks, take my son instead?"


message 23: by [deleted user] (new)

Lets just skip Charlie & Billy they are both gaumless. Put in Harry at least he is a little more interesting.


message 24: by Ken (new)

Ken (playjerist) | 721 comments If Harry becomes King, he can wear his Nazi uniform, and it’ll be Thirties déjà vu all over again.


message 25: by [deleted user] (new)

So Harry has a nasty side? I wasn't aware of that, I don't pay that much attention to the royals.

P.S. The royals don't have that much influence.


Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) Harry dates the loose, party girls. He seems to have way more fun than his older brother does.

It must suck to be the older one in line for the throne and you are stuck having to marry the uppity, proper society wench.

What in the world does it mean to be without gaum, Lori Gail?


message 28: by janine (new)

janine | 7715 comments gaumless = lacking intelligence and vitality

Hm, Harry is the sexy beast out of those two. In a teenage boy, sort of way. Not that I'm into that. Um.

When they go into the woods at Bamoral hunting for a G-spot it’s really hot.


message 32: by Kristina (new)

Kristina | 136 comments I want to see the wedding. I don't need all the 500,000 details before hand. But yeah, I'll enjoy all the pomp and circumstance that goes along with their ginormous wedding. But since I don't watch the news because it usually makes me angry, I shouldn't be bombarded by all the inane talk going on about it.


message 33: by Michele (new)

Michele bookloverforever (lovebooks14) | 1970 comments I think they should just elope: maybe a small Balmoral wedding with just family ...does Gretna green still exist? Have a private ceremony in the gardens at Buckingham Palace...

Come out from behind the ficus, Sallers, and high five me. I'm totally with you on this.


message 36: by Jan (new)

Jan | 241 comments I've always felt that Queen Elizabeth has waited it out for William to become mature enough to get the title. I don't think she wants Prince Camille to get it. She probably realized that her son was doing the hanky-panky with C both before and during the Charles/Diana marriage and she was determined to stay alive and Queen until William could grow into the Kingship. That's what I think, anyway.


message 37: by Lori (new)

Lori I agree.

I remember the Charles and Diana wedding, what a hoopla! We were watching it at work, and one of my co-workers was bawling. I thought it went on interminably. I'd want to sit down. Still, Diana was all young and fresh, dewy, and look how that turned out!

I'm not into it, but I hope they are happy.
