    WELL I'M GOING TO PROTEST IN THE STREET AS MY RIGHT OF SEEING CHAS MAKE JOKES ABOUT THE WEDDING ON TV HAS BEEN VIOLATED.

We discussed this in class Wednesday, when talking about "planned events" in the journalistic context.
    Yeah celebrity can be viewed as garish and tacky, but the royals manage to pull it off because of their self-restraint, formality, education, traditions, etc.

    I really don't care much about the royal wedding. Kate seems like a nice girl with a good head on her shoulders, so I'm glad William has enough sense to marry her instead of some bimbo, but there's no way I'm getting up at 4am to watch it. I'd rather sleep! I'll just look at coverage online tomorrow to see what the dress looks like, but beyond that I probably won't pay much attention.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    Fingers crossed for a leaked royal honeymoon sex tape. Fake one convincingly yourself and get a zillion views in 20 mins. And possibly a visit from humourless SAS types within 30 mins.

    The wedding itself would only be interesting for me from a schadenfreude perspective, and even then not nearly interesting enough for me to actually watch it.

    Ooh...that would be cool, especially since Prince William is pretty hot, and it would be great to catch him in the act before he goes completely bald.

    However, royalty knows better than to do something like that JJJ, so dream on!

    Also, I'm reminded of this recent Onion snippet: Millions of People Prince William Would Never Deign To Speak To Captivated By Royal Wedding

    Oh, royalty. So close, and yet so far.

    I truly don't understand why anyone cares. I understood everyone's fascination with Diana, especially because her story was the first modern fairy tale in the television age, and Diana had quiet charisma. But this one just doesn't capture my attention. William and Kate seem like nice, ordinary people that I don't really give a crap about, other than generally wishing them well. I'm tired of the royal wedding being plastered on every website, every station, every magazine. I also get annoyed with people calling her a commoner, as if this is 1765. It just all seems a bit silly, to me. Being a princess isn't a fairy-tale thing anymore--it's a nightmare of not having a moment to yourself that isn't scrutinized.

    Oh I love it. A Prince and Princess getting married? I'll be watching for sure.
    I think it's sentimental.

    Aside from the wedding, the Royal Family is such a spectacle though. I don't know how they don't feel like complete clowns, considering all the attention they get and that they do basically nothing. I think I'd feel like less of an important person if I were royalty rather than more.

    i always thought harry was hotter. and i like the carefreeness he has.
    he knows he's not gonna be king. so he can fuck up all he wants.

    william looks like his dad.
