Anyone else excited about this?

I will, of course, be watching it with academic glasses on, commenting on the nature of national rituals and not her wedding dress. Of course.

Also very excited. I confess to have read a trashy book of Wills and Kate that came out a few months ago. I hope the best for them and am excited to see all the pagentry of that day.

Grandson of the richest woman in the world gets married and we end up paying. Might get a good view from my new office though...

Show off :P Think there's a lot to be said for watching it on the tele like most plebs, meself.

Would like to be in London that day. I was in town the day before Diana's funeral and it was an odd experience, so much of the city had converted into a space of mourning. It would be interesting to contrast that with the space of celebration that it will undoubtedly be for the Royal Wedding. I also like the feeling of tourism on my own country at these moments; at times of heightened nationalism and pageantry, the culture doesn't feel quite like it is mine, though I am guessing that is true for many white British folk too.
