It says on the internet that 2/3rds of us (brits- I suppose) were not interested in the royal wedding.
Any thoughts on royals/weddings /fractions?
I would have been happy to ignore this pointless extravaganza but I'm in a pub quiz team and each week there are questions on the week's news, so I deigned to watch a 2-minute highlights clip. Surprisingly, for an old cynic, I was slightly moved. I thought the setting was charming and the newly-weds seemed surprisingly normal and sweet. It was also nice to see the racial inclusivity Perhaps I'm not as nasty as I like to think I am.
There were sure lots of people waiting to watch them arrive, come out of the church, ride in the carriage, and ride to wherever they were going. Many, many more than what was watching Trump's inauguration. The streets were packed. It seems the same as movie stars, or when the Red Sox win the world series. I don't know if they are needed, or why people like them or don't like them. Maybe it is a beautiful, or exciting moment in a world that is falling apart.
