It’ll be a real life Cinderella story ladies and lads.  The young son of a Prince William is to wed!  It’ll be a grand party.  Party?  Political party?  Political protest?  Protest for civil rights?  Civil rights struggle?  The people struggle for their rights?  The people struggle to be heard?  A democratic struggle to be heard?  The wedding will be a hot democratic struggle for the world to hear their cry.

Gala party or democratic civil rights struggle… you decide.

But boy what a choice William has made… first there was that Nazi outfit at that party a few years ago, that was worrysome if he intended to use his royal status to build schools for the people, or ovens.  But now he’ll be slumming it for the wedding!  Good for them.  smile  He’s chosen for his bride, of all things… can you imagine?...  he chose a commoner!  big surprise  This is beyond scandalous, this is positively rebellious, could William have a little democratic streak in him!?  The big question about her, is she a royal in the making, or is she a true red blooded democrat?  The big question about the family is, will mummy really be able to grit her teeth during this rebelious wedding?  We’ll see.

In other royal news, Mubaric has left power, and Egypt is having elections.  Libya’s royal Kaddafi is keeping up the fight.The democrats of Bahrain have made their presence heard but King of Bahrain, Hamad bin Issa al–Khalifa sadly gave them truly royal greeting.

Back in Britian someone has been defacing the car to be used in the up-coming wedding.  Now, who would do such a mean thing? “Kate Middleton to use repaired Rolls-Royce”.  The protests are really heating up, threats are in the air:  Anarchist groups threaten to target royal wedding”.  I wonder if there are any democrates involved?

Coalition of Resistance  National Campaign Agaist Fees & Cuts  UK Uncut  Revolution socialist youth movement  Royal wedding: diehard republicans battle on despite Britain’s love affair with the monarchyBrian Haw loses battle against Parliament Square eviction

Officials and workers will not be left outUnion protest over Stobart Group royal wedding ‘discrimination’ 
COP PROTEST THREAT FOR ROYAL WEDDING.  With all these protests outside the wedding, I wonder if there will be anyone left to attend?  smile  He he he. 

The Obama’s, they are expected to attend, I wonder if they’ll choose the wedding as a time to show their true democratic hearts?  Don’t give up hope people, keep your hearts open to democracy, power to the people.  smile

Maybe once Middleton gets to Westminster Abby she’ll show some appreciation to Newton and Darwin, that’ll be some good news.  smile

And common enough now that one has to wonder why it’s even newsworthy. It worked out well enough for Princess Grace and Queen Noor. The Dutch don’t appear to have much of a problem with it either.

No matter, I think there are vastly more important things to concern oneself with then whom it is that the “bluebloods” mingle their DNA with. If anybody else wants to get their knickers in a wad over this, fill your boots!

It was a fun party, sure.  But lets keep our heads.  smile
“...  taxpayers sent the royal household 38 million pounds ($60 million) last year…”

This is what the great democracy of Britian has to show the world, huh?  A royal wedding with a king-sized bill  They seat the audience facing the asile rather than the altar?  That’s more like a fashion show than a ceremony of worship!
big surprise  As happy as the event was, I am sad that neither of Englands greatest scientists who were present for the wedding were given acknowledgement from the wedding parties, not Sir Issac Newton nor Charles Darwin.


MARGARET WARNER: “And why does that matter for the U.K.? I mean, here is this very modern democracy. Why is the monarchy still in such a prominent place?”

JOHN BURNS: “Indeed, two of the principal left-wing newspapers in the country basically in the last five days have preached a republican message: Don’t be fooled, in effect, by what you see on the streets in the wedding. This is an institution that’s run its course.”

So who is the royal family really, who is in the house of Windsor?  For a history why not start with King George III: George III (r. 1760-1820)

Sheilds: “However, at a time of economic trouble and sort of down spirits, I thought this was a good-news story with wonderful visuals today and a very appealing couple. And let’s hope the happy ever after works.”

Brooks: “And we have Gettysburg. We have Lincoln. We have a Constitution. British identity is interwoven with the royal family. For most Britons, it is part of their identity. It’s part of what holds the country together. They don’t have a constitution. So, I’m for it.”

It is a “living museum of british history” and as such it does have historical value. However it is expensive to maintain. But, starting with Dianna, perhaps the younger generations of royalty will be more “grounded” and use their influence for good purpose. After all we pay millions of dollars to watch our favorite movie stars depict the lives and historical evolution of great societies, including the British Empire.

Isn’t it a bit antisocial to speak about a possible divorce on such a happy occasion. Be nice! smile

It’s a bit crazy in Finland too. Finnish people crying in front of television because “it’s so beautiful”...

I believe that most of us really do need these fantasies in order to relax a little and just enjoy our silly emotions. It doesn’t need to be a bad thing at all. Every nation has it’s own peculiarities.

After a millennium of treachery, Imperialism, oppression, pillaging, the Irish Troubles, Bloody Sunday, the US Revolution, the Australian penal colony, the Slave Trade, ... and now we just make nice, huh?  Happily ever-after, huh?  Yeah, take hope in the nineteen-year-old bride… or the twenty-nine year-old?  No… I won’t do that.

JITP, it was Harry who wore the Nazi outfit, not William. William is much more conscientious of his public persona. Harry has always tended to be the wild and carefree son. After all, he won’t inherit, unless his brother dies…

...and while a commoner, Kate Middleton was born into a fabulously wealthy family…

Oops, thanks for the corrections, I don’t really follow royal news closely.  smile  William won’t be King either, there is Elizabeth, Charles, Camilla, Diana (by popular demand will be Queen risen from the grave). ...

No, it is Elizabeth, then Charles, third in line is William, and until he has children, fourth in line will be Harry. Harry will be bumped by any children William has.

  tongue rolleye No again, it is not Elizabeth’s choice. There is some sort of protocol, I can’t remember off the top of my head who is over it..but Charles can either choose to remove himself, or (I believe) Parliament can invoke some such rule stating that he is ineligible for some transgression. That is what they did to King Edward when he elected to marry the divorcee Wallis Simpson. If Charles steps aside, it will automatically fall to William. It think they can also decide whether or not to make Katherine queen.
