Yes, I'm infiltrating the Forum with the Royal Event! So, are you excited, secretly going to watch it, or repulsed by the whole shebang?!

For the record, I'm in the 'secretly going to watch it' gang!

Contradictory feelings, I'm very much a republican.

The whole notion of royalty is silly, rather offensive, destructive and we would be vastly better without it. So I don't want to watch and dislike the fawning tone that British broadcasters will adopt.

Yet when this is pointed out by non-Brits, I feel defensive of the royal family. I do think there is a lazy anti-British feeling sometimes.

Guess I'm just contrary. So Ill watch a bit of it, in a sneery eye-rolling mood.

i frankly don't understand why anybody would wnat to watch something like this or why anyone would care about it at all, given that it has absolutely zero impact on their lives. i'd rather watch paint dry than watch a wedding between two people i don't know.

moreover, i wouldn't watch it on principle anyway. the whole notion of a royal family is a ridiculous one and i can't wait until we get rid of the nonsense that is the royal family. feudalism died centuries ago, and they are a relic from that elitist, sexist, jingoistic past that i would much rather do without.

not to mention that i can't abide the union jack waving morons who will doubtless be out in their droves talking about how much they love the royal family and everything that the monarchy stands for.

You raise an interesting point about the Union Jack. I know some Irish and Scots who loathe the UJ, but are happy to see the England flag fly. They hate what the UJ stands for. I had never realized until people mentioned it to me.

I always thought the Union Jack stood for the unity of the united kingdom and our shared culture and heritage.

Having lived several years in both Wales and England I'm happy to say I've never come across anyone who was offended by the national flag. If anything the Welsh should be annoyed - where are we on the flag?

I don't understand why it would be offensive to Scots. It surely stands for the unity of Scotland and England over the centuries...it came about when Scottish King became King of England afterall.

Another reason Americans are generally quite interested in many things British and Irish is that, particularly East-coast Americans (from what I've seen/heard), have a strong sense of their Anglo-Saxon and Celtic heritage. And the British monarchy is a part of our cultural heritage - a living fossil really.

yes, i am perfectly happy with st george crosses, etc and all that english patriotism. just the union jack which is my problem.

i find it odd that you have never met anybody who is offended by the union jack :lol:

sure, the union jack stands for union, but that's one of the reasons that i despise it. i don't wnat to be part of a union where scotland gave up her rights back in the days of feudalism. and i dislike the unionist northern irish connotations as well.
the fact is that i'm a republican and an anti-unionist, so the flag doesn't relaly do it for me. also, "our" national anthem talks about crushing scots, etc, which doesnt particularly strike me as embracing unity between england and scotland...

Fair enough to your sentiments. I guess the reason I've never met anyone that hates the union jack is that around London, the West Country, Wales, the Midlands you don't really find anyone who is anti United Kingdom. Many Welsh people hate the Assembly and think they should be governed solely by Westminster, for example.

I'll be so happy when this is over. All the commercials and news stories on this are so tiresome, I can't even imagine what it must be like if you actually live in the UK. My favourite commercial was one for the limited edition refrigerator with their faces plastered on it. :sobbing: Get up during the night for a glass of water, and there they are staring at you through the moonlight.

yes, probably that is the case.

there are hardly any scots who oppose devolution at all, really. but right now, that is as much as they want. maybe 30% in favour of independence and 95% in favour of devolution.

Curiously in the end it might be the English who finally bring about the end of the UK. I think a situation like that of tuition fees leaves the English feeling increasingly frustrated with the status quo.

I consider myself to be as Republican as it gets :devil: - I find the whole notion of a monarchy absolutely ridiculous. I think it's best for my blood pressure if I give the whole coverage a miss (a big a miss as it's possible to get ;) ) - the fawning and the whole "commoner becoming a princess" (or whatever words they will use) - aaargh!!!!!

and breathe...

However, William and Kate do seem like a nice couple and I wish them well. My argument is not with them as people in the slightest. I feel quite sorry for Kate to be honest - yes, I know she's marrying the man she loves and she'll be living a life of unbelievable privilege but what of some of the other costs? I couldn't bear having my life under such a microscope. It's ridiculous blah blah (breeeathe). There's no way Kate can have any cold feet when it comes to this wedding - she is committed to this.

I hope they'll both be very happy together but no, I really don't think I'll be watching the wedding...

As much as i dislike the idea of a royal family and ppl being born into priviledge and money, i will be watching just like 90% of the UK and other places in the world.

One day we all know that there will be no more royal families...all of them will come to end eventually, so why not enjoy what they do and bring whilst it lasts.....cos it will not last forever....they will become apart of history like so many other things. :cool:

I just watched "The Queen" and when I see Elisabeth at the wedding I'm going to view her different. What a WENCH that woman was about the whole Diana thing. I was a bit young back when she died to understand everything but Elisabeth was a huge beyotch about the whole thing. Makes me respect her a lot less.

I also don't think Kate has the same beauty as Diana did. She's a bit, dare I say a horse face?

It turns out Kate's father was a big fan of mine growing up. He wrote me a heartfelt fan letter as a youth. Luckily I had a real press secretrary then unlike that lay-about Carole Ann I have now. Anyway, apparently "I" wrote him back a beautiful "personalized" letter with a photo. Well, he's rewarded his screen heroine after all these years. That's right, losers, Helen's going to the royal wedding!!! I'll give you all the details. I hope they don't want me to sing, Margaret Whiting is dead and can't dub.

I have little to no interest in it but I may look at a couple of pictures if I come across them. I certainly don't like what the monarchy represents (or what it has represented in the past) and I find the blind adoration of the royals foolish and distasteful (not that I'm saying all who like the royals are blind) but I wish the happy couple all the best! They may not be deserving of a lavish lifestyle funded by British taxpayers but they are as deserving of personal happiness as anyone else.

Do let us know the details of your outfit, and I hope you wear something daring like Vivien Westwood did when she met the Royals - she wore a see through number and she was in her 60s I think! Aim to outdo the bride and you cant go wrong as there's no such thing as bad publicity!

I'm wearing a Calder-mobile inspired gown, details to follow. I'm bringing my great-granddaughter who of course wants to pick up Prince Harry. Four generations later, my drop-dead superstar good looks are slightly diluted. I gave her a $50K budget for plastic surgery and gown. If she's going after Prince Harry, who should I go after?

This is what frightens me. The cost of the Royal Family is minimal and no one would be better off if they were disbanded. And what would we have in place? Look at the Italian President, France and many other countries. Corrupt money grabbers. The royal family are scrutinised constantly and the Queen does not fritter money on self-gratification. Other European Presidents live in palaces and enjoy the high life. And look at Russia and American Presidents! I also feel very sad at the lack of patriotism in Britain. If it's so awful how come so many come here?

always such a ridiculous opinion: if you don't like it, then leave. its a good thing the suffragettes didn't take that attitude, or that the equal rights movement in the usa didn't take that attitude.
and you have to expect a lack of patriotism in some quarters of britain where people feel scottish or welsh first, before feeling british. in any event, the lack of interest in a couple of rich kids getting married has nothing to do with non-patriotism or hatred of the uk. i frankly don't care about either of those two people and find their wedding about as relevant to my life as that of any other couple who i don't know.

anyway, if you like the monarchy, then good for you, but its current rules are discriminatory in the extreme and crucially gives a huge amount of power to someone who has not been democratically elected and whose main qualification for the role of head of state is being born into the right family. sure, this power TENDS not to be used (though have been in somewhat dubious circumstances before) but the principle of the thing is wrong.

I'm not enthusiastic about the Royal Family, and would advocate the end of their reign when the Queen passes away. Though I do take a more defensive position when criticism comes in from abroad, so there is some patriotic feeling there.

As for Patriotism, there is a balance to be had, it doesn't have to be a choice between a wholly positive or wholly negative view of Britishness or Englishness or whatever. My view is that Britain and England have both done some terrible things in the world and indeed some wonderful things. I don't support those who want to shove the flag waving showy patriotism peoples throats, but equally we shouldn't feel apologetic about being British.

Why are you linking patriotism with the Monarchy? It's impossible to consider yourself truly patriotic and support the Monarchy at the same time. They are total opposites.

All talk about equality is just hypocrisy as long as all royal families are not abolished.

I think you overstate your case. I agree that the existence of the Royal family re-inforces the class system and division, and I agree that its a ludicrous notion.

But to suggest Britain is a faliure as a country because of that...Im not having that. There are a lot of countries that still have monarchies, not just us, are you writing all of them off too? Heck the likes of Australia, Canada etc even have the same Queen as us!

Logic either stands or it does not.

I would not mind living under monarchy if only they knew how to run a country. That seems not to be the case in Britain.

i would rather watch paint dry! who cares about these people and why are people around the world so obsessed with them is beyond me. of course stupid 24/7 media showing this to the masses doesn't help! so called royalty which means hundreds of years ago their family beat up and killed other familes and people took control over the country and made themselves "royalty" and now centuries later these 2 lovebirds and in fact any part of the royalty "lucked into" this family and this life when they could have easily been born in kenya living in a dirt hut! so now,

they have a life of luxury and fame and have never done anything deserving of the tax payer's money to support their lifestyle! to me, they are no better than the famous for being famous no talent likes of kim, paris, nicole and so on! except maybe they have more class and manners! that's it!

hey, i love my movie stars, sports stars too and yes, they get too much attention, but at least they've done something to EARN THEIR MONEY AND THEIR FAME AND THEIR LIFESTYLE! meanwhile england is drowning in debt to support this?!

unti the day they (the so called royalty) can walk on water, and don't have to go to the bathroom and their feces don't stink, then and only then will i think anything about these people who actually have no place in the majority of the world's daily lifes! if the world was the way it should be, mother teresa would be royalty!

She is just a leech and that is even worse.

I'd wager she brings in fair more money from foreign tourists than she actually costs. She personally works pretty hard, especially for an 85 year old!

Again, to an extent I agree with you. I would like to see an end to the Royal family because I do think in some ways it holds us back as a nation.

That said I think your view goes too far. A lot of great countries in the world are monarchies...

Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Japan, The Netherlands, Spain etc...you have a similarly dim view of all of them?

What makes a country a success or failure is down to any number of factors of which this is only one.

I never thought of monarchy as a tourist attraction. Maybe it should be privatized and run as a business? Competition to the Big Brother :tape:

Monarchy is not compatible with democracy. You must choose one or the other. A good dictator can be better than democracy.

But hypocrisy always creates moral hazard and corruption. You cannot run democracy, religion and monarchy at the same time.

I'm wearing a Calder-mobile inspired gown, details to follow. I'm bringing my great-granddaughter who of course wants to pick up Prince Harry. Four generations later, my drop-dead superstar good looks are slightly diluted. I gave her a $50K budget for plastic surgery and gown. If she's going after Prince Harry, who should I go after?

Make sure you bring diapers. The guests are going to be in their seats for a long time.

This is what frightens me. The cost of the Royal Family is minimal and no one would be better off if they were disbanded. And what would we have in place? Look at the Italian President, France and many other countries. Corrupt money grabbers. The royal family are scrutinised constantly and the Queen does not fritter money on self-gratification. Other European Presidents live in palaces and enjoy the high life. And look at Russia and American Presidents! I also feel very sad at the lack of patriotism in Britain. If it's so awful how come so many come here?

Its time for British people to celebrate our wonderful country and great history. And those that hate Britain can always emigrate!

Chris 84 and others in this thread have put their points across much better than what I am going to attempt, but here goes... :)

I respect your opinion (of course) but I don't think I could agree with it less. (Sorry!) Disliking the whole concept of the monarchy, the idea that someone is inherently 'better' due to an accident of birth, the whole thing that a financially squeezed country is supposed to drop everything and celebrate and rejoice (oh, and financially contribute, but I'll admit that I don't have the figures here) because two privileged young people are getting married? Whuzzat?! I don't think it makes me anti-British at all. This country has its faults for sure but I wouldn't trade being British (maybe being from Monaco or somewhere would be nice, but la la la... ;) ).

I won't pretend the situation in Italy with Berlusconi etc is anything to be happy about (and I won't pretend to be an expert on that situation) but it seems to be an incredibly negative argument to say, yeahh, whatever, let's keep the monarchy in case we get some crook in power instead... I don't have the answers but I do know how I feel about the situation right now and I don't think it's too fair...

[/breathes] :)
Sorry for bad grammar/syntax etc!

Britain, Australia, Canada, Spain, Belgium, Japan, New Zealand, Sweden, Norway, The Netherlands...it's your position that all these countries aren't democracies?

For the sake of clarity...again, I am AGAINST the monarchy. I WANT a republic. But I don't think you can dismiss a nation just because they have a Constiutional Monarchy. Which is what your position seems to be.

I don't think, for example, that Canada is a lesser country than America, just because it has a Monarchy.

They are semi-democratic, just like Iran. Switzerland is closest to a true democracy.

But United States is the best country because of the constitution. Freedom of speech and other rights are more important than majority rule. I am no democracy fundamentalist :rolleyes:

What are you basing your opinions on?....your the only person i have ever seen, heared or read comparing the governments of Iran and the UK lol.

Its right the UK doesn't have a "traditional" constitution so in effect is more liberal and democratic than a country that does (imo), as we are not subject to any constitution should we want to change the law, unlike other countries which would have to go through a long drawn out political and public process to do so.

Britons are not equal like the most European people. Men will be called "sir" only if they serve the class system well enough etc.

There is no freedom of speech in Europe like in the USA. No chance to oppose Islam, for example. The EU constitution is another example. The French, The Dutch and The Irish all voted against it, but the elite pushed it through. If this happened in Iran, it would be worldwide scandal.

Have you ever lived in Britain? How do you know its future? We've got one of the best education and health systems, low crime rates, a stable government. Of course it's not perfect but it's still one of the best countries to live in.
