(I'm not sure if this is the right category for this topic, but...)

So, typically, I don't care about celebrity relationships/weddings, but I really like Kate and William, and I really really want to watch their wedding on TV! How about you guys?

I won't be watching it - The Royal Family really annoy me. They have lots of money for no good reason whatsoever.

I will be. I'm putting up my flags and getting out all my patriotic paraphenalia. Making cakes and making all my Swedish neighbours come round and watch it too.






When is it? :oops:

I have zero interest in the royal family, so no... but I don't mind having an extra day off work.

No, they annoy me too. I mean Jesus, they started making Wills & Kate merchandise like a day after they got engaged! I don't want a jigsaw puzzle with their mugs on it. :x They need to chill with the hype. Still, I can guarantee it will break television records.

My sentiments too, Locustman (I'm a PhD student) & our lab, the whole University actually, is looking forward to a holiday. Although I might be in anyway as I have the key 8)

Not too much interested in the Royal Family but the story is all over the news, of course. Oh, and today....one day holiday to St. Andrews! Astounding place and just so happens it's where Kate & Will met at their University.

btw, RainingRoses: In the UK the Royal Wedding is a legal holiday.

Here, we get our own personal wedding day off. Grudgingly. :?

I'm old enough to remember the last big royal wedding with Princess Dianna. Y'all know how to throw a big party. I'm sure I'll see some of it but not planning to watch the entire extravaganza. Enjoy, celebrate, be merry and all that good stuff.

I'm a fervent monarchist and I will not be making even the slightest attempt to watch this wedding. I will be very grateful for the full pubs and drinking time though. ;)

No...and pah to the royal wedding!

It's on my birthday, not that I'll be doing anything for my birthday, but then because of the royal wedding my partner can't get time off for my birthday or birthday drinks the next day - this is one of many examples of the universe denying me successful birthday celebrations.

I'm an American, so while Kate may be hot, that's not enough to get me to watch the wedding. And personally, I think that even with England's gun laws and the SAS being all over the place that it is still a huge risk to put them in the open.
