    Default The Royal Wedding

    Everyone was cooing about how gorgeous Meghan Markle looked (too skinny for me) but I was just thinking how hot Kate looked. Not that I watched it - just seen the pics. I mean, it's not like you can avoid the coverage over here.

    Well that was a totally pointless comment. Congrats on adding fuck-all to the thread, I guess.

    Hey Blofeld, what’s the feeling over there about her family? Is there any worry about what PR debacles they can create?

    I'll say it again. I'm a hardcore Anglophile. America, England, and Israel. That's all that matters to me. Apologies to Canada.

    Mostly it's that they're trash. It's one thing for a royal to marry a commoner - which in itself is a huge, huge chasm to cross when you begin to consider the gravity of who they are, the world they live in (truly removed from the rest of us and in a way even super-rich celebs can't compete) and the nobility of it all (she's marrying into lineage older than her country!) - and that in itself can be perceived to be unbridgeable. Thus the non-royal is tolerated at best but never truly accepted - and though I am no royalist, I can understand why this sentiment exists, they really do live in another world, to another code, and with another history.

    So it's another for a royal to marry into a scummy, grubby, tabloid-headlining pack like her family. The royals have had their share of scandal and indiscretion but her mob - her brother, father and especially that money-grabbing vulture of a sister are something else. Real pieces of work. Just no class (and even a well-mannered commoner would be seen as lacking class so just imagine how this lot look).

    Whenever commoners have married into the famliy in the past - Fergie, Kate, Sophie, Tindell - their families have stayed in the background and it's easy for everyone to forget their humbler beginnings but her family are a disaster waiting to happen and tabloid gold. They will constantly be making their presence felt (in order to bloat their bank accounts, no doubt) and will tarnish the royals to no end. Add to this the fact that I don't think the marriage will last and it doesn't bode well.

    I don't think anyone in the Firm - or the upper classes - was happy with Harry's choice due to the risk involved. I am no royalist and favour a republic but when you look at the royals, their history, and the world they inhabit as opposed to ours, you can't help but marvel at it. Alien as it is. And to see it being debased is a sorry sight, even for someone like me.

    I'm sure the Duke of Windsor is turning in his grave. Wallis Simpson paved the way for Markle but was never accepted. Treated like a pariah. Different time, I know. I do find it curious how much the Queen has relaxed so many traditions over the years (cough*marrying divorced people*cough) for the sake of her own family. Does she ever say no anymore?

    Back to my point at hand: Kate. Giving me the horn big time at Harry's wedding.

    Especially photos 4 (standing side on, fab legs), 5, (pushing a pram, great legs again), 6 (looking like sexy filth) and 7 (legs again).

    The Church of England was founded when Pope Clement VII refused to annul Henry VIII's marriage to Catherine of Aragon, so they should probably lighten up on their views of allowing divorced people to marry in their church.

    Honestly, I think the whole thing has been watered down too much over the decades. I'm much more old-schooled and appreciate the rules/traditions governing the monarchy in the days of yore. Then again, I'm Catholic, I'm used to rigid rules that make no sense.

    "Do as I say, not as I do" has never been a good policy. It's like the dad that threatens his son, "If I ever catch you smoking", with a lit cigarette in his own mouth.

    Eh? Divorced people can marry in CoE churches.

    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney
