I just don't do the whole monarchy thing, y'know.

Anyone else?

We took advantage of a free day off (obv not for us sath whose day is pretty much the samebank holiday or not) and went to Australia and got caught up in the hype over there.

Good luck to them. But am I the only one wondering what my reaction would have been if I were Mrs Middleton when Kate first got caught up with Wills????

Oh and would def NOT have accepoted the engagement ring from such a famously farcical marriage that ended so badly!

Is there anything wrong with me and my mates plans. we are going to have a barbeque in the garden 2moro and probably most off the weekend. no decor just alcohol and a barbie. we start the party tonite and plan on getting utterly smashed till monday evening and hope to miss everything.

My ds said yesterday (they weren't in Tuesday) they spent the WHOLE day on the Royal Wedding, and today they are having a party. He said 'it's only a wedding' smile

He was allowed to wear red, white and blue although I am not sure they were expecting a Sonic the hedgehog t-shirt....
I am going to avoid whole thing at all costs...

Battery, that's shite! I'm truly shock that the school was happy to squander spend so much time on such bollocks. Apologies for the language but this all gets right up my nose. Consenting adults watching/celebrating/talking about/lining the streets for the effing wedding is one thing although I think it's still weird and sad but making kids do it at school ... words fail me.

"Personally I think PW has been told to get on with it just like his father before him and look how that turned out! "

I also think that there´s a bit of that to it as well.

I can´t help thinking that since they got back together she has been fashioned into something suitable.

Otherwise, why not marry years ago?

Still, she showed him that she was able to be at his beck & call, so what was the hurry from his pov?

They´ve lived together for years & are now making it official-where´s the romance in that?

Can´t help thinking that she´ll be pregnant before the year is out!

Bleurgh at the mock wedding. Cheese fest.

Batteryhuman Wed 27-Apr-11 19:05:39

DS' primary school has wasted 3 blardy days preparing for a mock wedding tomorrow, party, dressing up etc. I am so hacked off with it. If I had announced I was going to take him on holiday and not be back until next tuesday there would be much tutting and muttering about the packed curriculum and need not to miss a minute but they can spend three days "marrying" off 2 poor year 6s who happen to be called Will and Kate.

First against the wall when the revolution comes.......

A major recession and TWO royal marriages - what a coincidence -am I the only cynic on the planet? Personally I think PW has been told to get on with it just like his father before him and look how that turned out!

I'll be shopping and hoping there are no big screens set up or sales assistants with portable TVs on up at the tills!

SpeedyGonzalez Tue 26-Apr-11 23:27:44

"Am I the only one who thinks PW should be marrying better?" - er, what does this even mean? Is she not a lovely woman who loves him to bits? What "better" could he want than that? confused

not celebrating!There is a street party in our road, but we are going to the seaside and hopig to miss the whole blardy thing.

diddl Tue 26-Apr-11 08:09:58

Yes, you could be right!

It´s just that you know the engagement interview-it seemed very put on, as if she had been "shaped" into that.

Made me think she´s either good enough or not-but don´t try to make her so if she isn´t considered to be iyswim.

he wouldn't get better, he's ugly, he should be gratefull he pulled her

diddl Sun 24-Apr-11 11:05:41

Me-I´m not celebrating?

Am I the only one who thinks PW should be marrying better?

LadyClariceCannockMonty Sat 23-Apr-11 15:45:37

Sorry, Foxtrot! smile

LadyClariceCannockMonty Sat 23-Apr-11 15:44:49

Love it, Forxtrot!

FoxtrotMikiLima Sat 23-Apr-11 15:32:06

we're off the a 'Revolutionaries' kids party for the wedding. Ds will be wearing a Che Guevara t-shirt.

What time is the wedding on?

Bubbaluv Thu 21-Apr-11 12:36:03

We're having a party at a friend's place here in Sydney! We were all going to wear our wedding dresses, but none of us can fit into them so it's veils only.
Any excuse for popping some bubbly (even if I am a republican!)

StillSquiffy Thu 21-Apr-11 12:20:53

My friend has obligingly hired a riad in Marrakech for her birthday celebrations, so I'm off for long girly weekend where we will toast our good fortune at not being anywhere near a television. I am trusting that the wedding tat will not have made it's way to the medina, but you never know and we will of course buy up any call to prayer clocks with 'Will&Kate' engravings that we might find...

jugglingjo Thu 21-Apr-11 11:46:36

alibubbles - what's not to like? Birthday off, fully paid, nearly everyone else off too. Hope she has a good day anyway !

alibubbles Thu 21-Apr-11 11:27:51

My DD's birthday and she is peed off as her company give them the day off fully paid as a bonus, she won't get another day instead!

Going flying with DH to France for lunch, we'll have to watch out for the flypast in our airspace!

mixedmamameansbusiness Thu 21-Apr-11 09:47:23

There is a street party near us soi we will be going as we are rather broke and it will be nice to do something in the community and there will be a bouncy castle and face painting.

However, I will celebrate anything and just enjoy parties and things.

We're having a royal wedding bbq party. I just decided on monday and the union jack plates, bunting, chocolates and cupcake decorations arrived in the post today!

It's a good excuse to have people over and have a bit of a laugh (in the same spirit as eurovision parties i feel). I'm starting at 2pm so they can watch the wedding at home if they want.

We will be in rural France grin
