    <div>After months of anticipation, the society event of the decade is almost upon us. <strong>His Royal Highness Prince William of Wales</strong> and Miss Catherine Middleton will wed this Friday April 29 in a grand ceremony that has been sending ripples of excitement across the British Empire and beyond.</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>Unfortunately, the day will not be a national holiday in China though British subjects unable to return home for the ceremony will be celebrating in their own way. The bridegroom departs from Clarence House at 5.10pm Beijing time in a procession that can be enjoyed <span>live on the official website</span>.</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div><strong>America</strong> <strong>has also been caught up in the excitement</strong>, though the rich cultural traditions of Britain and linguistical differences have led to some confusion. The wedding cake &ndash; a traditional multi-tiered fruit cake &ndash; is <span>correctly written with two words and will have frosting and a brandy soaking</span> rather than the plainer American version.</div> <p>Read more!</p> <p>http://www.timeoutbeijing.com/features/Blogs/11603/The-royal-wedding.html</p> <p><a href="http://www.timeoutbeijing.com/features/Blogs/11603/The-royal-wedding.html"><img src="http://img.timeoutbeijing.com/201104/20110425123021127_Medium.jpg" alt="" width="482" height="298" /></a></p>

    Hahahahahaha ... technically, I am still a "British subject", being HK residence (duriing colonisation) and part of the Commonwealth, so I will see what I can do ... but his wedding, sadly, will never be as memorable as his mother's ...

    ... one thing I had always wondered though ... why do I have more hair (on my head) than he does?

    As a "British subject" I hope the whole day is a total disaster. I don't give two tugs of a dead dog's cock about the royal family, and I don't give a fuck if one of them is getting married. Do I want to go to, or even care about, my bosses wedding? My CEO's wedding? My local councillor? Fuck no. Why does the British media expect me to care about the wedding of someone who has even less of an effect and importance in my life? Why does the British media make out like me and the rest of the country care when I am still to meet one person who will tune into this on TV instead of some mind-numbing reality show?

    Dole sucking, gyro rat scum the lot of them.
