Not really fussed, just goes to show that if you're famous enough, the media will blow your wedding out of proportion so much so, some people would think that jesus is coming.


As a British person I'm surprised you make this comment.

It's not about being famous. 

It's about history, Heritage and the flag we have.

This is more important to Britain than Jesus coming.

I'm serious. 

History, Heritage and flag? I don't see how any of those were affected today, nothing more than blood was added to the incest pond that is usually the blood is drawn from, during ceremonies such as this. This event is blown out of proportion, largely by tourists but I don't see how this is associated with our history in any way? Monarchy is dead and nothing but scandals and maybe little tidbits of usefullness come of it in the modern day and age. Sorry for being the cynic, but I don't see how the average person in UK is affected by this, in any way at all. If I were to use the clothes metaphor, Britain would be a suit and the royal family would be nothing more than a fancy tie clip or a belt buckle, it's an accessory.

Beats the constant stream of Katie Price's shitty news I suppose, but in terms of news, there are much more important issues that could be covered. I saw "Kate waves to the crowd, and the crowd cheers" news story on BBC front page yesterday - yeah that really is a sign that she's the next Diana or something.

It may be an accessory in todays yonug peoples minds. The problem without going to deep. Is lecturers teach young people some facts and figures. 

The Monarchy is not that. You cannot teach pride, heart and unity. 

When young people of todays society realise this, then the culture may regain some dignity.

On the contrary it was great to see many young ones today, feeling British pride. 

The government isnt even remotely close to what is the prideof Britain. A Government that requests publicly not to fly St Georges Falgs in the World cup as not to upset the ethnic religous communities. Get real.

The Monarchy is EVERYTHING that is the pride of Britain. I hold my hand on my heart to our Kings and Queens when I sing my national anthem.

Why is he called Wills?



I went to see it, and bought an English flag (yes, St George's Cross) just to be different.

I really do not understand my country's love for the Royal Family. They do nothing. They take away tens of millions of pounds every day from the elected government and splurge it on fancy uniforms, dozens of servants and the occasional air show. They could not be futher distanced from the average British person, and the lot of them are spoilt, stuck-up and arrogant. Hell, they don't even lead us into battle any more.

And despite this, we had over a million people lining the streets just to get a glimpse of Prince William and Princess Catharine standing on a balcony.

It's a part of British history, yes. That's why I can sort of understand excitement at, say, a coronation. I'm sure I would be somewhat excited as well, because it would be a new supreme leader of the country being appointed. But to be this excited about a largely symbolic wedding with no actual significance, except that maybe in 40 years or so Catharine will be Queen Consort and do precisely nothing, is... rather odd, don't you think?

EDIT: I will add that it's lovely that something can peacefully unite the country like this, so perhaps it's better not to complain.

Are you brainwashed? We can agree to disagree, in my opinion, nothing useful comes of monarchy, it's nothing but an accessory.

I think stopping flying of the flag is also bullshit, but that does not represent the government in any major way.

You're right, we should go back to Monarchy and live the rest of our lives in pesantry.



Disconnect and self destruct, one bullet a time.

I'm from England, I don't care about this at all.

In fact I know no-one IRL who does, it's just the BBC and newspapers hyping it up for the last few months.

My stance on monarchy: meh, she's a useful ambassador and net financial gain for the country. Doesn't magically make country better or worse, I don't know why people have such strong opinions for or against it.

Two people got married.  News at 11.



You guys do know that they are the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge not Prince and Princess, right?




Lame. News about Lady GaGa is more interesting than what these snotty parasites and their boring lives.



"I don't understand how someone could like Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky, but not like Twilight!!!"

"Last book I read was Brokeback Mountain, I just don't have the patience for them unless it's softcore porn."

It's far more significant that William is second in line to the throne and will almost certainly be King than that he is Duke of a small university town to the North-East of London.
