    My royal wedding watching dates back to Charles and Diana, before VCRs or DVRs when you had to set an alarm for the dead of the night.

    This is almost too easy! I'm in. Just not live.

    Have no plans to watch. To each their own but I have never understood why this would interest any American. British I can kind of understand but not Americans.

    We Americans are complicated like that. :laughing:

    I think we can appreciate the majesty of it all while simultaneously loving our independence from the monarchy.

    :confused3 I apparently live under a rock - when is it? I imagine there will be ample news coverage so practically everyone on the planet will see at least some of it. I’ve got no plans to watch it live, or in its entirety but I would like to see the dress.

    I watched Princess Diana get married when I was a little girl, and excitedly watched Will and Catherine's wedding with my own little girls.

    But I won't be watching this time. I'm not at all a fan of Meghan Markle's.

    I got a chuckle out of the part I bolded. I immediately thought of a saying we have in the south "Bless his heart" which of course mean someone is not too bright.

    I never even heard of her before the engagement. I just figure he deserves a chance to choose his partner and assume he wasn't corralled into a loveless match the way his parents were. I wish them all the best.

    Andrew and Sarah Fergason had a love match - a very public and passionate one as I remember. It didn’t work out any better than Charles and Diana. Ann is also divorced but Edward and Sophie seem to be going along fine.

    I think marriages, whether “corralled” or freely chosen, are precarious and fail all too often. :sad1:

    Sure, but it seems so much worse when they have been corralled into it.

    I won't be watching, I don't believe in the idea of 'royalty'. It will be hard to avoid news coverage however. I think they seem like a nice couple and hope they succeed at marriage.

    I believe Andrew and Sarah are still living together.

    My understanding is that she will NOT become a princess.

    I doubt I will watch live but I will watch some coverage. I will admit to being an unashamed anglophile and royal watcher.

    She will not be a princess in her own right but, like Kate, her titles will include princess though technically she will be Princess Henry like Kate is technically Princess William but goes by Princess Kate or, more generally, the Duchess of Cambridge. I wonder if, in the future when Charles is king and William becomes the Prince of Wales if Kate will then go by Princess of Wales or keep going by the Duchess of Cambridge.
