Many people on the Left are quite beside themselves criticizing the royal wedding. And adding insult to injury, Prince William did not invite the Affirmative Action King of the World to the wedding. (A wise decision, in my estimation. Do you really want an insecure megalomaniac trying to steal the spotlight talking about how “interesting” he is to anyone bored enough to listen?)
Although the aristocracy may not be what it once was (see my thoughts on aristocracy), people of the European Diaspora generally are still fascinated by the idea of royality. Outside of the UK tomorrow in democratic (read managerial/therapeutic) states, the eyes of most people with English blood in their veins will be turned toward Albion. Like the prick of a needle, perhaps it’s a reminder of the West that once was.
May His and Her Royal Highness, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, have a memorable wedding ceremony tomorrow (and some privacy from the media afterwards)!
