I have been listening on radio, to the various thoughts on Eugenie's wedding on Friday.It will no doubt provoike wall to wall coverage on the television channels, not least because it it is at Windsor, and is reputedly incurring a security cost of 2 million. Do your thoughts reflect the opinions already expressed?

I didn't hear the programme, so don't know what opinions were expressed but I'm guessing that my thoughts probably coincide with what most folk think about this.

A non-working, fringe member of the Royal Family getting married is not of much interest to me.

I don't mind the public purse paying for the basic security that would be required for the Royal Family if Eugenie's wedding was a small, private, family & close friends affair but, as they have turned the wedding into a grand public event, requiring much more security and policing, I think she, her parents or her Granny should be paying for all the extra security that entails.

Here is a quote from today's Daily Express.....

The BBC turned down the request of Prince Andrew, Princess Eugenie’s father, to broadcast the wedding because “they don’t think enough people will tune in and there isn’t enough support for the Yorks.” There is some coverage on ITV though.

Says it all really.

I am a great fan of the royal family and normally enjoy a royal wedding but this is one wedding that I have no interest in whatsoever. So I won't be watching.

I don't live in London. But my thoughts are why pass the expense onto the public. If you have a wedding
Pay for it yourself.
