Noone's flocking to the City... It's almost entirely shut down at the moment.

International media tend not to be British, for one, making their opinion kinda irrelevant, and if (for example) 10 million people watch the wedding, that's no more than a popular episode of Doctor Who or Top Gear.

Big screens and flocking to the city? It's an excuse for a big party.

Are you talking about the power that English Kings had pre Magna Carta? Or simply when there were English kings, since there hasn't been one for 300 years? Do you have any idea what you're talking about?

If its the british people then that's a shame, i would never give someone i don't even know my hard earned money for a ridiculously expensive wedding i won't attend.... its a scam. there should be no kings and queens anymore, its a tired concept that's run its course.

not to mention that there are tons more important things to be reporting in the world today than this fodder.
The common wealth are paying... that would be YOU in Canada! LOL
