Did anyone else watch the Royal Wedding?  Thoughts?  I was just jealous of the sunshine!  It has been raining here for 7 days straight.  I liked the bishop's homily about love- very well said.  I thought Megan's dress was a little bit plain but I guess they were staying away from too much lace and stuff.

Refuse to watch this sorry farce.....it utterly disgusts me that even in this day there are so many forelock-tugging, sycophantic, arselicking Royalists...they are an utter embarrassment and an anachronism which should be abolished immediately.

No doubt she will be pregnant as quickly as a rat up a drainpipe and producing more expensive breadsnappers to suckle off the teat of the state.......ugh.

I don't give two craps about an English royal wedding, yet I can't wait for season 3 of The Crown. Weird...

My mother set up her DVR when she realized she was full of crap saying, "I'll wake up at 5am".

I do wish them luck.

Aren't the "Royals" basically self sustaining and a tourism draw?

Couldn't care less. I live in the US and they're not our royal family and play no part in my life. Still amazes me that anyone outside of the UK cares about this kind of stuff at all.

They may be a tourist draw but they certainly aren't self-sustaining, they receive millions every year from the Civil List.....they would still be a tourist draw if they were actually self-sustaining.

I don't care about the British monarchy itself, but they do know how to put on a bangin ceremony.

Really?

I figured that was happening long before the engagement.

Yes, but we don't have any here so it's pretty fascinating for some reason.  There were so many people women here wearing hats and having Royal Wedding breakfasts; I was surprised at how many of my friends did it.  I enjoyed it but watched the highlights a little later in the AM.

I watched it.   Nice to see that a country can come together to honor their Royals.

While the monarchy is an anachronism in this day and age, and the older generations have the annoying habit of telling people how to live,  this younger generation,  Diana's kids,  seem to be a pretty good lot and do a lot for charity,  and Harry started the invictus Games,  which give back to those who suffered for having served their country.   And whatever you think of the royals,  it was the elected officials that sent the you no men into battle.

Bashing the younger generation as personally as some do seems a bit unseemly.

got up early and watched it on cbs. I t was a job well done. Gorgeous. I loved the sermon and the somewhat smack in the head the audience got. The boy behind Meghan  how his face lit up when the trumpets started it was priceless! Dress understated. i wanted to sit with her mom and give her a hug!  Plenty of people do not like the Royals but that's fine but many people do. Keep Calm and Adjust Your Fascinator, Y'all...

I don’t know about you Royals fans...but you’re certainly not as bad as Yankees or Red Sox fans. Good gawd...

If you were referring to me, allow me to clarify: I have no beef personally with any of the Royals (they didn't ask to be born into their circumstances), but the institution itself, which i find abhorrent and anachronistic.

I wasn't referring to you as, as you suggest,  your criticism wasn't personal.

Hearing the fashion Nazi's complain that her dress was too plain was bullshit. She's hot enough that she could make a potato sack look good. She looked fantastic...I appreciate the less is more approach.
