I have a feeling this wedding will have more viewers than William's wedding.

No thank you because I seriously see this as a train wreck and in five years she will be history as they say .

So you think that all members of the royal family and the elites in Britain have close warm families that all love each other? No scandals there, right?

What does it take to be part of royalty? There seem to be a lot of crazy rules.

I will watch a later recording of it, not because I care about the wedding, but Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop of the US Episcopal Church is giving the address and I want to hear. Heard him speak in person two years ago, and I was very impressed. And he's funny.

Just reminds me of how much I miss Lady Di.

She was truly an amazing person and humanitarian.

No, I'm not a fan of Meagan. I think she's a social climber and the way she's treated her parents is awful. She didn't even fly her mother to England until three days before the wedding.Her father put her through private school, pricey Northwestern University and supported her while she was struggling as an actress and she couldn't be bothered to introduce him to her fiance at any point in the last two years. She abandoned her dog, her friends and anyone else not needed for her new upgraded lifestyle.

Just because I'm American, that doesn't mean that I can't have an appreciation for or fascination with other countries and cultures.

Well, if there's one thing this thread has proven it's that there are a lot of sour people on the internet who could not find joy in a happy occasion if it hit them smack upside the head. Good Lord!

It's the wedding of two people who are complete strangers to us. Why are we obligated to find joy in it? Did you get an invitation? Likely no, so why do you care?

I'm interested because I'm interested. Why do people watch the Kardashians? Because they're curious! Other than that, my husband spent the majority of his childhood in England. His family maintains relationships there and travels back and forth frequently. We are American, but we have a connection to the country and the people; therefore, we will watch and be happy for the betrothed couple. It's okay to be interested in the world outside the American suburbs. It's also okay to take joy in other's joy. That's how I see it anyway. YMMV.
