I do agree with you ... but we could make that statement about a lot of things ..

what does the Super Bowl cost ... The Miss Universe Pagent ...The Olympics

etc. ...they cost millions too ....or how about a ladies closet filled with Burkin

Bags ?

How many could any of us who shop feed?  It is all a sliding scale.  Anyone who has access to clean water is shamefully priviledged.

 

On the original topic, I will watch, I love seeing it all from the horses to the waves, the guests, etc.  and I'm just happy it is a respite from the Kardashians!

 I did watch Diana's wedding and I had some interest in Kate's wedding, her dress and bridesmaids....no interest at all in upcoming nuptials

I can't think of anything that interests me less than this family, their babies, weddings or wardrobe choices.  I wish the media would move on from this silliness.

Re: Are you interested or care about the Royals and the wedding etc....

Come on now - the OP here simply doesn't like the royalty in England and their traditions, including the money that is spent on their weddings, etc. Unless you live in Great Britain why would anyone care what their hundreds of years of protocals calls for? If you don't like it, then don't read the news about them. Some of us are interested in the children of Diana because she was an amazing woman. I don't follow everything they do, but I wish them happiness. If the people in GB add to the royal coffers, that's their tradition - not ours. If you look a little further, OP, you'll see that there is quite a bit of chairty already given to many countries who are improvered.

And since we are laying all out there, I wasn't terribly impressed with troubled Diana either.

I'm marginally interested in some aspects of the royal family, but not in this wedding, and certainly not to the level of obesesion that some posters seem to experience regarding every aspect of everything about them...

@aubegirl

 

Yes, interesting.  And relevant.  This family's history dates back to the end of the dark ages and beginning of the middle ages.

 

And, it sure beats the Kardashians..............
