I was somewhat startled by all of a sudden Harry being a "guest interviewer."
Where did that come from? Would he want $$$ for it?

I think Harry has lost the plot.

The FA cup final is one of the most watched sporting events in the world. I can't think of too many events that would get a larger international audience on an annual basis that that match. Soccer is the national sport of most nations in the world and England is no different. Interestingly the wedding isn't only on the same day as the English FA Cup final but the Scottish as well - and they are never on at the same time. Of course William isn't involved with the Scottish FA only the English but still to put the wedding on the biggest football day in England and Scotland is madness. A lot of people don't just watch the game but make a day of it e.g. start partying hours before the game - watch the Scottish game, more partying, watch the English game and then continue partying.

My friends and I have made out plans clear - going to a local football match (not sure whether is will be Aussie Rules, Rugby or Rugby League yet but one of them - get home around 11.00 in time to watch the Scottish FA Cup final before watching the English one). No time to fit in a royal wedding and given the massive amounts of money our TV stations pay for the rights to these sports I can imagine that the sports will insist that they show the local games rather than the wedding - so maybe the ABC will be the only channel, on free to air, compared to everyone with William and Kate.

They obviously knew the date before the engagement was announced as it was reported on that day that the weekend of the 20th May had been locked in as being unavailable to the public so they knew the date well in advance of announcing the engagement as otherwise they wouldn't already have that weekend booked out.

I love the fact that some people think you can't get married in a chapel - tell that to Queen Victoria who married in the Chapel Royal at St James' Palace. They obviously don't know what a chapel means.

This wedding will be televised of course - as was Edward and Sophie's wedding and Charles and Camilla's blessing service in that same venue. That has already been announced and I would expect either the Archbishop of Canterbury or the Dean of Windsor to perform the ceremony with my money being on the Archbishop.

I was recently doing some shopping and either the No Idea or Women's Drivel (can't remember) had the following predictions - William and Kate to have a daughter called Victoria, Harry and Meghan to be pregnant almost immediately with a child early in 2019 but ... for the marriage to basically not last more than 10 years. I love these predictions to see how accurate these 'psychics' actually are.

Sorry if this seems to be a rambling post but it was more a series of responses to earlier comments and I know I can't post multiple successive posts and I am not good at multiple quoting.

 Shocked  ick

I don't know why Camilla wanted to be Charles' mistress so badly? Because of her great-grandmother? That is something to be embarrassed by, not something to try to copy.

You mean she didn’t even wait until her daughter was born before getting back in touch with PC?!

What a disaster. That is yucky to me.  ick

I think William will get a replacement to attend the cup for him. It's not as if he is going to go out there and play much less be a sports star.

Charles will be at the wedding.
