BBC Says More People Watched The Horse Race Than The Royal Wedding...

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/4430801.stm

Interesting, but not really surprising I don't guess. I'd love to have a Brit's take on it. Or maybe the Royal wedding is sooooooooooooo 2 days ago

That really isn't a surprise. Nobody really cares about the royals and the horse race is one of the biggest sporting events in Britain every year.#

Most people in Britain are dreading the thought of Charles and Camilla being King and Queen anyway
