Debate: Will You Watch the Royal Wedding?

Posted By Tammy Gordon On April 28, 2011 @ 1:27 pm In Notebook | No Comments

Anyone who knows me knows I love a good argument. The one on the table today at AARP… will you watch Kate Middleton wed Prince William? At… 4… a… m…

I have to admit. I can’t wait to see the dress. But, to say I’m not a morning person is an understatement. So, I loved reading my co-workers Karen and Bernard argue it out on AARP.org today [1].


Karen says she’s watching for Diana and the promise of a new marraige:

“Can you imagine how much she would have liked Kate? She is a “common” girl who appears to embody many of the personality traits that endeared Princess Diana to us – humor, grace, beauty, compassion, humility and independence. Oh, the late-night talks those two women could have shared.”  Read Karen’s full story [3].

Bernard (who may or may not have had enough coffee today) fires back:

“… millions of Americans are preparing to wake up early Friday morning to turn on the television and watch King George III’s direct descendant, Prince William, marry a “commoner” (an eight-letter word that speaks volumes about what the royals think of you and me) in a lavish celebration not only of their wedding, but of the very concept of monarchy – the same British monarchy (with, thankfully, much less power now) that the brave American colonialists gave their lives to repel.  I don’t get it.” Read Bernard’s full story [4].

Where do you stand? (If you follow AARP’s Twitter feed [5] you’ll know if I made it up for the big event)

If you can’t get enough, make sure you’re reading the Kate Middleton FTW blog [6], RSVP on the British Monarchy’s Royal Wedding Facebook event [7] page and bookmark the YouTube live stream of the wedding [8] for tomorrow!
