Fair bit of coverage here in Australia - mainly just people's reactions. Pretty much... "I dont want him to be King of Australia" or "I dont care, as long as they are happy."



I wonder how the Scots feel with him frollicking around in a kilt!

The most important question of all regarding the marriage is: Is it going to be a public holiday that day? Will we get the day off work the day of the wedding?

Hi guys

A couple of days back I tried to comment on something arising from the reports on Charles+Camilla's wedding the site wouldn't let me but, as Johnnie has helped me to sort the problem I'm commenting now

There was a comment bout Edward 8th abdicating in 1936. Alister Bruce said he was the second royal to abdicate. The 1st one being Edward 5th in the 1400's but, Edward 5th never got the chance to abdicate he and his brother Richard were kidnapped on the orders of their uncle Richard (Later Richard3rd), imprisoned in tower and murderd in 1483, Uncle Richard then took the throne for himself and reigned until defeated by Henry Tudor (later Henry7th), on August 22, 1485 at the battle of Bosworth.

When I heard Alister Bruce's comment I tried to comment as I said above but was unable to until now but, following my comments above, maybe someone should ask Alistter Bruce how Edward 5th Got to abdicate when he never became King in the first place but was imprisoned and usurped by his uncle.

It's my mum's birthday that day, so she's keeping her fingers crossed that it will be!

Doubt it'll be a day off in the UK. Maybe if it was a big wedding, but seeing its shaping up to be a largely private one...



It definately wont be a public holiday here We dont even celebate Elizabeth's birthday on April 12! We have Queens Birthday in June... I think Victoria's B'day is celebrated in most states.

in Western Australia though they have Queens Birthday in April I think.



I'm hoping the event will be televised though...
