    At my office, we are divided between those who would rather stick needles in their eyes than watch the ceremony and those who are fascinated by anything having to do with the royals. So, what's your take? Don't hold back.

    Ugh...no, I have no plans to watch it...for starters, because it's being broadcast at like 4AM or something like that.

    Beyond that, I don't really care much about the Royal family. I mean, I do like Elizabeth II...but beyond her, meh.

    And frankly, I don't care about wedding dresses, I don't find William particularly attractive, and it seems like it's a bit of an affront to rub peoples noses in an opulent wedding for this couple following a recession...but hey, that's just my opinion.

    Merchants selling their tacky wears are no doubt overjoyed. I mean, that piece of trash replica ring (the copy of Diana's ring, that William gave Kate when they got engaged...according to the commercial) that sells for like $20 or something like that is proof that fools and their money are easily parted!

    I mean, if the price doesn't convince you that there is NOTHING of value to the ring, then their description of it tells you flat out that it's a piece of glittering junk. Sterling silver plating? C'mon!!!

    Actually, I'm looking forward to it...so that we can STOP HEARING ABOUT IT when it's finally over!!!

    Yes, we're going to have a wedding party and everyone's going as their favourite monarch. I'm going as Henry VIII.

    In Tasmania, the wedding's on at 9pm which is great timing for a party.

    And Will and Kate will be the King and Queen of Australia one day. Why not enjoy the spectacle?

    ....well Wills' Dad Charles - who wanted to be a tampon (seriously guys - he wanted to be always in the Rottweiller's pants - aka Camilla Duchess of Cornwall)..will be King first...

    how can you take seriously anyone who wanted to be a sanitary pad???) - let alone a head of State.,..

    hopefully by the time of Charle's being snatched up to Tampon Heaven - Australia will be a Republic and we are spared the latest Windsor Horse as head of state...

    Isn't it on at like... 3am?

    I'm sure we'll be blasted with it through the news and magazines.

    So initially no, but I'm sure we'll all be forced to eventually.

    There is so much history and tradition with the royal family that goes back centuries. This will be one of the most watched events globally in history. Of course I will watch -- maybe not from beginning to end, but I will tune in at some point if only to see Kate Middleton step out in what will probably be an incredible gown and looking gorgeous. She will become the most photographed woman in the world.

    I'd rather stick needles in my eyes. I don't worship human beings.

    I would watch it if there was a chance someone was going to speak rather than hold their peace, or if the bride was going to bolt.

    So, no.

    Support for the monarchy may be declining, but as soon as Kate pops out a few cute young 'uns it'll go right back up sky-high again, and stay up until they become teenagers and begin getting into trouble and scandals, etc.

    I dont care much for the engagement - but I would be lying if I was to say it was completely insignificant to me.

    I worked at Sky News for a bit, was an unbelievably huge stoke of luck that got me that job... but that same week while I was training, the engagement was announced - BOOOOOMMMM!!!! We got super busy and I struggled to keep up with the.... news? Or whatever ya call it. So I lost the job midway through the training week.... ugh!!

    Still, I might have to put that sick feeling in my stomach aside and just make it down to Buckingham Palace myself and see if there is anything worth photographing - I dont even know what the plan is. It would be cooler if he was marrying a dude.
