A Royal Wedding

I’ve been getting pretty sick and tired of hearing about the “Royal Wedding.” Everywhere you click on the internet someone else is gushing over it. “What will her dress look like? Who’s designing it? What will the cake look like? Who’s the baker? What will the queen have for tea on the wedding day?” Good grief! What is the big deal?

I suppose I’m in the minority here, and if I was a big blogger I’m sure my comments would be spammed with angry comments from royalty worshippers everywhere.

“OMZ! Yor so horabal! There is so much romantic and shes a princess now!”

“You are so dum and you have no romance! Get a girlfrend yo looser!”

“Shes so pretty and hes so hansome why cant you be happy for them you moron!”

“Weddings are beautiful especially royal weddings, and celebrities are so much more important than you! Your comments mean nothing and no one agrees with you or likes you why don’t you just shut up!”

“%$#& YOU LOSER!”

And other such enriching, well thought out, eloquent replies such as these.

Yes, marriage is wonderful. I have absolutely nothing against the Prince and his new bride. I wish them all the best and I hope they have a great life together. I just don’t think that it is worthy of this level of publicity. Especially in America! Why are Americans so ga-ga over British royalty? My fear for this new couple is that their marriage will end in divorce, like so many other high profile marriages.
But enough of that. I started this as a humorous post because of a picture I saw today. And so help me, this is going to stay a funny post!

When I first saw the following picture as a thumbnail image, I thought to myself, “Good grief. Another picture from another swooning journalist, capturing a googly eyed smooch from the the royal couple.” Something prompted me to click it for the enlarged version anyway. I suppose this is similar to that urge that prompts one to stare at car wrecks on the interstate. I am so glad I did. It was so much more than a picture of a puckering prince and princess. It’s nice to know that I’m not the only one who is sick of all this wedding stuff!Open-mouthed smile


  1. You're not the only one who is weary of all of this chatter about the royal wedding. I was a part of a conversation where 3 others were complaining about it. I, on the other hand, am merely curious. I set the DVR to record the wedding. Oh, and on a positive note, I understand that William and Cate have been in love for a very long time leading up to this. That means that it's not strictly an act of duty, praises be! Perhaps this will be an optimistic thought for you?

  2. Optimism is always good. :)
    I probably would have been a little more curious about it, if it weren't being treated like the biggest event in history. It didn't start bugging me until everywhere I turned someone else was gushing over it. It was just too much. I'm glad I don't watch TV or I probably would have gone insane with all the media coverage. :p
    At least you weren't so obsessed that you went downstairs in the middle of the night to watch it live. :)
