Calm down, dear. It’s only a wedding

April 28th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Tomorrow is the royal wedding of Prince William, second in line to the throne, and Kate Middleton, as I’m sure you know already but probably wish you didn’t.

Looking past the vast cost, the hubbub of who has and who hasn’t been invited, the police mindset of labelling any protestors as criminals already, the anachronistics of the grooms position in society due to an accident of birth, and all the other rubbish that goes with an occasion like this, remember one thing.

Underneath it all this is some ones’ big day.

If you’re going to protest, be nice about it.

My obligatory royal wedding blog post

I was just looking through this article about who has been invited to William and Kates’ wedding and this sentence jumped out at me..

John Major, who served as a formal guardian to the princes after their mother’s death, is going and Lady Thatcher was invited but will not be present because of ill-health.

John Major, an ex-Prime Minister, was the formal guardian after Princes William and Harrys’ mother died. What the fuck was wrong with Prince Charles being their formal guardian? Y’know, being their father an’ all.

It’s not like Charles is some drug addled homeless person who doesn’t know his arse from his elbow, although some of his views on medicine could lead one to think differently.

Where Am I?
