I seem to recall reading somewhere that when that large slug, Gordon Brown sloped off and signed the Lisbon Treaty, it put an end to any power held by the British Monarchy, but the public haven't, as yet, been made aware of it.

Don't get me wrong, I'm no fan of the Royals, but it seems an odd scenario to me.

If anyone's knowledgable about this, I'd be interested to hear about it.

And bugger the new Royal Wedding. Just glad we get a day off work.

It’s amazing how those who profess to not care about the wedding can’t seem to stop talking about it...

I would rather watch my arm sizzle and wither in a bucket of battery acid then have my peripheral vision exposed to this #ing travesty of a spectacle.

LOL they wish...I could absolutely care less about this ridiculously extravagant waste of taxes/money..as if these people are anymore special then the people they supposedly represent. Farcical! What an absolute waste of time.

I wouldn't call a hard working SAR pilot a 'privileged leech' - though I'm sure he's saved a few stupid people to whom that term might well apply!

And I have little interest in the wedding other than the publicity and money it'll bring to Britain

I hear you mate but I think he wouldn't have got that position if it hadn't been for his family name. And remember this, not so long ago he actually took a helicopter and flew it to his partners home without permission, breaking alsorts of rules and regulations. A normal pilot would have been drummed out of the service. For him, it was simply swept under the carpet and neatly forgotten about.
Its a fact that more Americans are interested in the Royal wedding than those living in this country! That tells a tale doesn't it?

I'll be one of the five billion people not watching this wedding.

Wow!

So with all that is going on in the world today, about 29% of ALL the planet's inhabitants plan to watch this? How many millions will actually be setting their alarms to wake them in the middle of the night to stare at an image of two people getting married, whom they do not know personally, all because they are royalty?

Can somebody PLEASE explain this to me? I am simply stunned and am seriously having problems processing this.

Now if we can just convince all the people watching to give to their favorite charity as a wedding gift to the royal couple... we might have something going here.

England, one of the only existing monarchies in the modern world is spending 50 million dollars of tax payer money on this wedding in a shaky and unsure economic climate. All the while at home, food is costing more, gas is hovering around $8 USD per gallon, and the parliament is trying to double the cost of student tuition. Watching someone who is considered "royalty" because he was simply born into a bloodline that as far as I can see with the balding, big teeth, and average looks, is nothing special and the idea is dated and an obsolete way to determine who should rule over who. This truly is a mad world in that the people are being thrown to the wolves while the prince is being shuttled here and there in a 3 million dollar Rolls Royce.

If London doesn't burn on April 29th, I feel like maybe things will never change.

Old people, housewives and girls/women will want to watch it because they like that kind of thing. Married men and men with girlfriends will therefore probably be forced to watch at least part of it too. Then there'll be many who don't really care but will probably watch some of it out of curiosity. I can see 2 billion being an accurate figure.

Incidentally, I know someone (an Englishman) who was in the US when the engagement was announced. Apparently a few random Americans personally congratulated him on the engagement when they found out he was English.
Bless 'em.

It's actually 3 billion expected to watch the royal wedding......and I'll be one of them. I do enjoy a good royal wedding and this will be my 5th I've watched and a favorite because I'm a fan of Prince William.

I don't know what's so amazing. I love talking about how I'd rather drink turpentine and take a leak on a
brushfire so I don't have to watch these two get hitched. No sillyness intended.

The money that they are spending is keeping people employed. I always try to remember that.

Is it actually tax payer money? WOW, didn't know that part of the story, I'll see if you are right.

If you are right, then the whole of england should get invited, and get free food, drinks etc because it is their money in the first place.

The best I've seen so far was Princess Anne.....she was just so beautiful and stunning.

I've watched Princess Margaret, Princess Anne, Prince Charles, Prince Andrew and now Prince William.

I'm so excited, I can't wait.

I recall watching Prince Charles and Lady Di marry when I was a little guy, and the event kept me riveted to the screen, the "magic" of it kept me glued for hours.

These days, not so much. I won't be watching.
I am curious about the commercials, mass messages and such that they'll include since so many are viewing.
