Royal Occasion

It's 4:25AM and I'm watching the royal wedding on TV. I couldn't help it; I'm quite the royalist at heart. All of the major TV stations are showing it (what else would they be showing at this time of day).

The commentary is fun. Each of the channels has a man a woman from the UK (with very proper accents). There is generally an American person, asking some bizarre questions (will they cheer when Prince William enters the Abbey? - er, no).

There are also a lot of questions regarding the monarchy. Is the Queen going to retire? Do you think they'll skip over Charles? Those questions got a short sharp retort from the guy. No! This is Britain. Such a thing would never happen.

Excellent. Though I must say some of the hats were bizarre.
