Harry and Meghan Are Getting Married - BIGGER than Panda Watch

So who's watching? Who bought fascinators? Who bought scones? Who's sleeping in? Who cares? It'll be on all the networks in a few hours, so you an run, but you can't hide....


Personally I think Mike Ross will intervene, but who knows. So who's watching?

Not watching...

...only because the drunk, ole dad won't be there.

(I've always enjoyed his camera work on "Married With Children.")

I'll wait for the much shorter news clips.

Re: Harry and Meghan Are Getting Married - BIGGER than Panda Watch

It's bizarre. I turned on the TV at 4:30 AM, and it was on ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, Telemundo, and more. It's so far from my circle of interest that Mrs Danger had to explain to me a few days ago there was a royal wedding this weekend. Until Wednesday night, I didn't know.

Re: Harry and Meghan Are Getting Married - BIGGER than Panda Watch

I watched the black preacher's wild sermon (a tirade about love) delivered to a room full of stony-faced white people. It was pretty funny.

I watched the actual ceremony, too. Meghan Markle has a remarkable capacity for paying attention. Cousin Harry, however, was getting quite fidgety. (The damn thing WAS long!)

Prince Charles is such a doofus, sitting there staring down at his program during the ceremony.

But, I gotta say, my distant cousins Willie and Harry sure know how to pick 'em. An end to the in-breeding!
(Interestingly, Meghan Markle resembles my ex-wife, who only wishes she could have married a prince.)

When they cut to Elton John in the audience, I could imagine the TV director giving instructions to "zoom in on the old Queen" and getting the response, "Which one?"

Re: Harry and Meghan Are Getting Married - BIGGER than Panda Watch

I can't say I really care about all this, but I don't hold it in contempt like a wanna-be punk rocker wearing a homemade "I hate Pink Floyd" t-shirt (actually saw a guy doing that once in the late 90's). I find the pomp and circumstance interesting. Sorta like the Olympic opening/closing ceremonies. Besides, people are happy, so what's the problem? I'm sure Donny Dipshit will return us to our regularly scheduled disgust any time now.

Harry pissed off his family, royale. Nice. Marry who you want, bro.

Actually, that's the media's decision to make it a story and for you to deepthroat it with enthusiasm.

The institution didn't let his dad marry who he wanted. That turned out badly.

A sensible royal advisor would tell the young men, "Go ahead and enjoy yourself. But remember that at the end of the day, you will be under scrutiny that other people will never have to face. So have fun discreetly, and when you marry choose someone who is smart enough and tough enough to handle the pressure."

I didn't watch his parents get married either.

Also, the institution not only didn't let Harry's dad marry who he wanted, they didn't let his great-granduncle marry who HE wanted. Hilarity did not ensue.

I disagree. It's always funny to see a incompetent but arrogant rich boy get humiliated. Moreso if he's a Nazi sympathizer.

They might actually be thrilled. Shows that the monarchy is capable of adapting to the changing times. It stands in contrast to the isolationism of Brexit. And since Harry is far enough down in the order of succession, it doesn't really change the status quo. Everything to gain. Nothing to lose.

(...plus what Vibiana said.)

I can't believe Tom Hardy was in attendance on time.

Yeah the monarchy is doing much better than the government especially since Brexit.

Time to dilute that inbred bloodline for good.

Didn't watch, but I did read the reception menu. Sounded delicious!

Never heard of it or them, but I sort of believe you.
