Royal Wedding 2011 Live Viewer Poll
Despite the massive press that the Royal Wedding is receiving, how psyched are you about the Royal Wedding, and will you be watching it? In the UK, people are actually having parties for the event, and a lot of the older residents seem to have a real interest in it. To be fair, the Royal Wedding is a historical event, and in the UK it has been made into an official bank holiday.
That doesn’t mean, however, that we all will be watching it. To be honest, I HATE attending weddings. When I get an invite I’m always happy for the couple, but sad for myself. Dragging my lazy butt to church leaves me less than thrilled, and I always wish I could just fast forward to the reception. And as far as willingly watching a couple (Prince William and Kate Middleton) I barely know anything about is concerned, I’m not a big fan like some people are.
It definitely strikes me as interesting, since not everyone has this mindset. Thousands of people have been flying to London recently, just to set up camp outside of Westminster Abbey and see the event in person. Prince William has always been a celebrity, and while he is not my cup of tea, a lot of people find him attractive (which should also draw a lot of viewers).
In the UK, coverage of the Royal Wedding will start way before William and Kate Middleton actually say “I do.” There will be a bunch of interviews, footage of the guests arriving, and a lot of speculation about the affair. Online betting sites like Bodog have been taking bets for things like Royal Wedding attire for weeks. A lot of streets in the UK are having block parties (which will basically consist of a lot of drinking from the wee hours of the morning til very late).
At the end of the day, I have to admit that I will be watching the Royal Wedding. There has been so much build-up to it in the press and media that I feel obligated to! Plus, I love looking at fancy schmancy dresses that I could never possibly afford. How about you? Will you be tuning in tomorrow?
