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.

Show off Think there's a lot to be said for watching it on the tele like most plebs, meself.
Might get a good view from my new office though...
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.
