I just know my invite must have gotten lost in the mail...guess I won't bother sending the happy couple that toaster oven.
I love the pomp and pageantry of events like coronations and royal weddings. I got up at an ungodly hour to watch the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer, and I will probably do the same when Prince William and Catherine Middleton marry on Friday. I am looking forward to seeing the entire event, and "the dress", and "the tiara", and all the horse-drawn fairy tale coaches.
And, as much as I enjoy gossip about the Royals, and hearing all sorts of trivial details about the upcoming wedding and the people involved, at this point, I have had about as much pre-nuptial hype as I can tolerate. I think the amount of coverage in the American media reached saturation point several days ago and is now clearly into overkill. It is almost as though nothing else in the world is going on.
How do you feel about the Royal Wedding? Plan on watching it? Disinterested? Tired of all the pre-event hoopla and media coverage? Think it's a welcome change from all the bad news we usually hear?
