Thank you Liz. Now to print it out.

Have you seen this “Tea Party” game:
What is your Royal Wedding guest name? Start with either Lord or Lady. Your first name is one of your grandparents names. Your surname is the name of your first pet, double-barreled with the name of the street you grew up on. Have fun! (swiped this from nephew)

Mine is Bertha Dooley from Chapel

Will try to ping you. There’s probably only one live feed-—but each media group will air different features as the pomp and circumstance commence.

YouTube will have zillions of videos.

To: Liz

You can bet on virtually any aspect of the wedding:

• Will Prince Harry will be too drunk to give the best man’s speech?
• Will Prince William will split his pants at the altar?
• Honeymoon location?
• Couples First Child, Boy or Girl?
• Will couples’ first child be born in 2011? (think about that one)
• Kates Wedding Dress Colour?
• What titles will Kate & William take once they are married?
• Who will be Kate Middelton’s Maid of Honour?
• Who will be the Next Monarch?
• In what Year will the Royal Couples First Child be born?
• What Colour will the Queens Hat be?
• Who will design Kate’s wedding dress?
• Who will be Williams Best Man (Supporter)?
• What Number of Viewers will Watch on the BBC?

Bottom line: the Brits either have too much time on their hands or too much money!

OK FReepers, who is going to:

- Get up to watch?
- Tape it and watch later?
- Watch the highlights on Fox?
- Watch the grass grow?

Well, my Reuben will be my alarm clock and my sweet Pug Jack.

I will be here at 4:00AM and STARWISE had better plan to be here too, or I’ll call her!!!

I think Liz can have this thread made LIVE by asking the admin moderator to move it to breaking news [at the proper time - maybe midnight?] or asking the AM for assistance anytime throughout the day.

“Served on solid gold dinnerware with gold cuttlery” - for 600 guests? Wow. I wonder if they need any dishwashers? “Wait a minute! These are paper plates painted gold! Where’s that American dishwasher we hired? OK Palmolive Boy, let me introduce you to a game we play here in England. It’s called ‘Off With His Head’. No, you won’t be needing your hat.”

Can a Royal, not in line of succession..marry someone who isn’t British...would that also apply to Harry, the “spare?”

It’s NOT going to be rebroadcast. It’ll be live or nothin’.

It’s likely that most international news orgs will take the feed off the BBC (who else?) with some of the other networks that are big enough (most of the American MSM, basically) throwing in a few of their own cameras for good measure.

If you’re NOT planning to stay up and watch (which I am, God help me), your best bet is to either A) DVR it for later viewing, or failing that B) have someone tape it for you.

It looks like most major networks’ coverage will begin at 1:00am (Pacific)...ABC, NBC, FOX, E! Network, CNN, etc. For whatever reason, CBS’ coverage (hosted by Katie “Rah-Rah” Couric) is starting 1 hour later.

I would imagine BBC/America would have the least embarrassing commentary. If your cable company doesn't provide it I've read favorable reviews of TLC's coverage.

I was just a little shaver when Charles married Diana but I do recall Robert Morley (does anyone remember him?) was a commentator, for ABC I think. Utterly ridiculous. That's network news for ya.

I agree with you about BBC America. As an alternative, may I suggest The Learning Channel. They have had some lead-in programs that were interesting and informed, without the People magazine-E!-TMZ tone set by so many of the other channels.
