To think the wedding will be ok; but the preamble is overblown, overdone and over here.

I shall almost certainlly watch some of it on TV with my other half.

And write about it afterwards if something unpredictable happens.

But it spoils things to give it a week or mores full blast pre-publicity.

Are any Mumsnetters getting wed on Friday?

I'm looking forward to seeign what music they choose for the service - see if we can get some more original Hymn choices this summer than the normal crap brides choose these days....

Oh you know what they're like on the tv, it's the same before a final at Wembley or during the World Cup. Making a meal out of the lead up makes the atmosphere that bit more exciting.

Will be at a streetparty and watching (both at once, hopefully). It's been way overdone IMHO - no-one gives a hoot about the Royals any more - but it's an excuse for a day off and a knees-up at least.

will be down there waving flags

name change for a reason gabby???

Nickelbabe. They could have "Og God Our Help In Ages Past"....Elton
could give a few verses of "Saturdays Nights Alright For Fightin" (which was written about villages in my county) I never did the fighting myself.

I would like the atmostphere of the crowds in London on Friday; but I have not got the stamina any more.

We had the Queens husband here. He said to a member of the crowd "What would you be doing if you were,t here?" I gather thats his stock question.

Gabby Logan is commentating for Radio 5-Live. ( I thought she might have an invitation) She could be the new Richard Dimbleby. He was great in his way

It is so boring and not at all newsworthy. We all know it's going on, and we don't need it to be all over the news every day. Veeery veeeery boring.


GypsyMoth · 27/04/2011 13:46

which county gabby?


nickelbabe · 27/04/2011 13:47

Oh God our help in ages past is good for a wedding.
not so Saturday night.... [cgrin]


GabbyLagoon · 27/04/2011 14:03 is fatal to take the royals as seriously as they take themselves.

They may call you one of their "subjects" but you dont have to accept that description.

Now come on leading question...who would refuse to bow or curtsy to a royal? It would not be easy because you would have just been briefed by a flunkey to do so. (It would take nerve)

you dont have to bow or curtsey to a royal!

i never have


nickelbabe · 27/04/2011 14:55

if I were in an official line up, I would do a little bow, but if I was meeting at the side of the road, i wouldn't.
I'd shake hands, though.

I would curtsey to the Queen as I respect her. Also as she is quite diddy then she wouldn't be talking to my chest :)
