Is the Royal Wedding Over Yet?

Every single time I watch the news, there is a segment about Prince William’s upcoming marriage. I know it’s a big deal but I just don’t understand why I, as an American, am supposed to care.

Yes, I know that it’s an extravagant affair with a bunch of dignified royal people attending, but again, why should I care? This wedding is being covered extensively in every media medium and I saw enough already. I don’t care where Kate grew up or what type of shoes the guests will be wearing. I’m sure they are all nice people but it really doesn’t concern me.

The sad thing is I probably will wake up early on April 29 to check out the festivities. Coverage generally begins at 3 a.m. central time, but I don’t think I’ll be up that early. I might set my alarm a tad bit earlier than my usual 6:30 a.m. wake up call just to see what all of the fuss is about.

And now I realize that I’ve answered my own question. Why do Americans care about a royal wedding? Because whether it’s a tragedy or a joyous union, many of us just can’t help but watch. Just stop all of the unnecessary features about where Kate shops and who her friend’s were as a child. It’s just getting ridiculous.

    I am very tired of hearing about this. I watch the Today Show every morning, and all they talk about is the upcoming wedding. The whole Today Show crew will be going to Britain to cover the wedding, and I don’t understand why we care. Frankly, I’ll be glad when it is over with it.
