Why those on the breadline and going to food banks, are waving their flags, I do not know.

Yes I’m watching it and enjoying it.
First glimpse of the bride wearing an off the shoulder dress and beautifully cut, she looks nice.
Hope she has a lovely day.

Andrew will be there with that big smug grin of his and when he thinks how the taxpayer is contributing over £2m to save him spending his fortune, his grin will probably get bigger. She could have stopped a lot of the ill feeling towards this wedding had she said they would rather people made charitable donations than give wedding presents, after all they have more than enough money.
So my answer to the OP's question is an emphatic NO.

I don't think Alex Ferguson has ever worn a hat except for a day at the races.

Just for a moment, forget about the expense etc. This is just a young man and a young woman, very much in love, promising before God to always care for each other and stay together.

I think that's rather touching and beautiful.

The rest is just froth.

I wish them all the best, just as I would anyone else.

Good Luck Jack and Eugenie.

Pass the sick bucket.

If that's all it is - why have all the expense and froth in the first place? They could have just got married in a nice private ceremony with their family and frirends and - I don't know - maybe just leave Naomi Campbell, Jimmy Carr, Robbie Williams, Liv Tyler etc off the guest list.

Indulgent rubbish at our expense.

I thought the father of the bride was supposed to pay for weddings. I heard on the radio that Prince Andrew is worth £65million, so he could easily afford the bill.

Yep, I have to agree with that too.

I believe most of the public expense was to do with the security arrangements for the carriage ride, which we could have well done without, unless they were prepared to pay for the security themselves.

Austerity eh...? Amazing what money can be found for, when it suits...

This exactly.

A minor Royal doesn't need to be paraded around Windsor in a horse drawn carriage at the tax-payers expense.
If they want to do that nonsense then let them dip into their own deep pockets and foot the sodding bill.

It depends. Is she fitter than Kate Middleton??
If she is I'll watch it out national pride, if she isn't I'll boycott in protest at the state funding of the security

Too right. We didn't have all this rigmarole when Princess Margaret and Princess Anne's children got married. In fact Princess Ann didn't believe that minor royals should have titles etc either. Princess Ann and Margaret's children all had careers and worked for their living.
Typical of Andrew to want such a lavish ceremony for his children. But then, he is called air miles Andy. I certainly wouldn't miss any of these minor hangers on. I hope we don't have the same for Edward's children. In a period of austerity, they are throwing crumbs to keep the lower classes happy. Bread and circuses comes to mind.
I'd rather the money went on sorting out the Universal Credit problems. At least that would make more people happy and help the many not the few.
