Royal Wedding coverage going into over drive?
April 27, 2011 1:31pm CST
Oh my Is there anyone especially in the U K who do not know that Prince William is marrying Kate Middleton on Friday the 29 April, every news bulletin, mentions it,nearly all the daily U K newspapers have to have a picture of either Prince William or Kate Middleton, or both of them somewhere in the paper,yesterday the media seemed to think we needed to know that Kate and Prince William wont be seeing each other until Friday, this morning the early morning news seemed to think we needed to know that there had been a rehearsal carried out early in the morning in preparation for Friday.There are programmes about Kates family, Kates friends,what school Kate went to,we are told who will and who wont be at the wedding,(I think my invitation must have got lost in the post). Look don't get me wrong it's great that this couple are in love and getting married,and I wish them every happiness,it's not their fault that the media has gone in to over drive,but please enough now,I do not need to know any more about Kates mother being a former air hostess,or what the local butchers name is...or who is sitting where, and next to who on the day, I really don't need to know.. You know I am ever the optimist,and one day I hope a prince will come and sweep me off my feet ,and ask me to marry him....But when that moment comes(well you never know) I will grab my prince by the hand drag him off to the local registry office sign whatever forms need to be signed ,book the wedding for the following week,we will turn up in our ordinary clothes, find two strangers off the street for our witnesses and get married without all the un needed fuss..All the Best to Prince William and kate.. Am I being a misegrump mylotters? jojo732

Hi jojo, There are probably few people anywhere who doesn't know this by now, as we are bombarded with it from every corner. I will be up early tomorrow morning to watch, as I love all the fanfare and pomp and ceremony that goes with it. The monarchy does not cost the taxpayers as much as people think, imagine all the money brought in by tourists every year. My best wises to Will and Kate. Blessings.

Hi Pose123 Thank you for your response,I don't have a problem with Prince William and Kates marriage I wish them every happiness,it the continual media,going on and on,People would have still been interested in the wedding if it had been mentioned a couple of times over the last couple of months,I just can not believe that anyone is interested in the color of towels in the hotels...well you know what I mean..to much trivia...Any way once again all the best to the happy couple for tomorrow.. Blessings to you. jojo732

Oh dear, I did not marry a prince but my married life turned out to be more than what a princess could ever long for. And for that I would say I thank God because I have been blessed. Indeed I did not need a Prince to have a blissful marriage such as this. Who would need a royal groom if the marriage just turned out to be just as tragic as that of Charles and Diana? It is not the fame or wealth that matters in marriage but it just two sincere and pure hearts who know the real meaning of love and give due honor to the holy matrimony.

Well yes I think that its going overboard, just a little bit. Just like many celebrity weddings have in the past and this only means slightly more when you think about it. The royal wedding is essentially a high class, high end celebrity wedding, nothing really more. Obviously people are going to go rather nuts about something like this and the media circus is bound to happen, despite being Royalty does not mean as much as it did once before. Still best of luck to them. It can't be a good start to really have such media attention and that has to have such an insane amount of pressure and attention among it. I'll be glad when its over and we can move on with our lives. In the end, it is a glorified celebrity wedding, but only slightly more important when you think about it.

I watched a program about William and Katie. I found it interesting how they met and how their friendship which blossomed into a relationship happened. I haven't bothered to read any national newspapers and only watch television if there is something particular that I wish to watch. Like I watched the one program on my laptop. Usually the media go way over the top when there is a royal wedding. I remember when Charles married Diana and the media did exactly the same amount of coverage. I wish William and Katie a wonderful wedding on Friday 29 April.
