To not give a shit about the Eugenie wedding?
Rosehip10 · 12/10/2018 08:40
Does anyone really care about this? I know tabloids are trying to push this as fascinating and brilliant news (probably at request of her dad) but who cares if a random upper class women gets married? Why is it on tv? Why would anyone be mad enough to go on watch a carriage possession in Windsor and more importantly why does the tax payer have to pick up the bill for security etc?

You are allowed to not give a shit about anything you like AFAIK.
ilovegin112 · 12/10/2018 08:44
I presume the security bill is there because most of the royal family are there
BitchQueen90 · 12/10/2018 08:48
I agree OP but there will be cries of "but the royal family bring in more revenue than they take" etc.
It's still obscene to me and she does no royal duties.

I didn't even realise it was today until just now and I don't live in a bubble by any means.
I will look at the pictures of her frock and the other guests' outfits but other than that it will not ripple my consciousness

I am more invested in and aware of the Princess Juliet/ Mr Peregrine Banksbrook wedding to be honest!
ShotsFired · 12/10/2018 08:53
It's nice she is getting married, good luck to her etc.
But it's all bypassed me really, and I say that as someone who is temporarily working almost within walking distance of Windsor.
Seems a bit odd to get so riled up about not caring that you have to post about it though

Hugely embarrassing for the Royals who work. Freeloading junior relations at their most shameless - a vast bill to boot.
Thesearmsofmine · 12/10/2018 08:53
I can’t say I’m particularly interested. I will have a nosey at her dress but I do that with any wedding.
MicroManaged · 12/10/2018 08:53
I give as much of a shit about it as I did the other two...I’ll probably remember this afternoon and google the dress for a quick look...that’s about it
Dahlietta · 12/10/2018 08:55
I have no idea why it's on TV, but then, I was genuinely surprised that Harry and Meghan's was, so I clearly don't understand these things!
AviatorShades · 12/10/2018 08:56
I'm highly invested in the Playmo Wedding happening over in Chat.
Kick off's at 10.00am, so I'd best get my jobs done, get the fizzy on ice, and sort out my flag.
Any other event happening today isnt really important to me.
I've got my priorities right I reckon.
AuntBeastie · 12/10/2018 09:00
Of course you don’t have to give a shit. I don’t, so I haven’t read articles about it or watched anything on tv.
The security bill is because the British public can’t be trusted to stay at a reasonable distance and behave in a safe way without police involvement. They are being protected from each other just as much as the royals are being protected from them. Also because any event with lots of high profile attendees is a terror threat.
Eliza9917 · 12/10/2018 09:03
Why is it on tv?
Because she's a proper princess.
I kind of like her and Beatrice now. They seem to be able to take a joke & laugh at themselves & their fuck ups, they seem much nicer and less fake than other current members of the RF.

She seems like a nice young woman and I hope she has a lovely day. Her useless disgusting arrogant entitled pointless freeloading fatarsed father should have picked up the bill from his own personal millions.
PiperPublickOccurrences · 12/10/2018 09:09
So don't watch it. Carry on with your day as normal and avoid it.
londonrach · 12/10/2018 09:10
security is there due to the guests not the bride. I dont think most people be interested tbh. Yanbu.
ElspethFlashman · 12/10/2018 09:10
She seems like a very nice girl and the fiance seems normal enough so good luck to them.
Also I suspect her dress will be amazing, she has a big bust and could look stunning in the right shape.
But I'm astounded it's on telly. It shouldn't be that big a deal, it's absolutely nuts.
pasturesgreen · 12/10/2018 09:11
Of course you're allowed to not give a shit about anything you like, OP, it's a free world.
Just as I'm allowed to be quite excited about it! I'll certainly be watching.
SymphonyofShadows · 12/10/2018 09:13
I give a shit about the cost to the taxpayer, that's about it
BarbarianMum · 12/10/2018 09:15
You don't think it should be on telly? But "Problem landlords, nightmare tenants " or Jeremy Vile should be? What gem of dautime viewing do you think it'll be displacing?
Peridot1 · 12/10/2018 09:15
If the weather in Windsor is like that in Somerset this morning I feel sorry for them all!
But other than having a nose at the dress and what some of the guests are wearing I’m not interested either really.
