    Lol at you haters. Carry on your useless existence. Just sit in your lame chairs and look at your lame TVs how young and beautiful prince and his love are getting married. Some magic still exists as long as we are willing to believe in it.

      And they are such a nice young couple. He is serving his country and setting a fine example for all young men to aspire to. Let them be an example of the goodness our younger generation can strive to achieve.

      To Jack:

      Kennedy Clan
      Bush family

      Anyone who 1) once held public office, 2) has close relatives who hold/held public office and 3) now gets $25 grand to give a speech on "the circuit" qualifies

      Next King – Not quite. Only when his father dies.

      Next King, indeed. The throne is his. Charles will be expected to pass it up. Someone doesn't have to die, for another to become King or Queen. Americans should learn more about other "systems"., before they lend advice.

      I agree. I think Charles will pass it up. Charles indicated a sadness (during a recent interview) that he had devoted his entire life to his causes (which would have to be given up completely upon becoming King). His is pushing late 60's, right, and still loves his work. No-way, he will abdicate and leave the B.S. to William. I say more power to both of them. I would like see more of Charles' environmental work published and explored. This would be something only PRINCE Charles could do.

      Sorry, old news (that wasn't news). Been totally debunked. Hewitts involvement with Diana and Harry's conception don't line up. There is red hair on both Diana's and Charles relatives. Look at pics of both his uncle Andrew and his grandfather Philip when they were that age. In fact William looks less like his father than Harry does (at the same ages) and no on seems to question that one.

      Harry is Charles's kid. I am very sure the Royals have had a DNA test performed in the past and confirmed it. Red hair runs on Diana's side of the family as well as Charles's side. I would look more at facial features too...he is looking more and more like a Windsor.

    Jack you're right. We have no Royal Family...we have corrupted politicians.

      Megan is right we have no royal family to enjoy. Just crooked politicians to spend all of our money. CONGRATS to Kate and William. Harry was the obvious choice for a best man.

      Clinton left a big bank account, and George W. Bush gave it to Baghdad. Who's spending our money, and is he not trying to repair the sails, so we can sail again. Oh, you'd rather sink – right?

      Hasn't anyone learned yet that you have to spend money to make money?

      February 14, 2011 at 8:49 am | Report abuse |
    • Holly

      Yes, JD is correct. You indeed have to spend to make, however, spending has to be smart. For example, cuting emergency services (including snow removal) destroys growth, but it gets attention so we will be doooopped in to actually voting for more taxes. Why not cut all the fart sniffing research, and invest in the engines that actually allow businesses to function.

    There was a news article about how everyone in the UK spends about a dollar a year to keep up these ancient criminals' lavish lifestyles. I say whoever pays for them should be able to go to the wedding, because there's no way they earn enough to be able to spend what they will.

      A dollar a year?!?!?! You mean if I lived in England, I'd have to give them my yearly HARD EARNED ONE DOLLAR? O noes!

      Somewhere in the world, there's a poor young royal, wondering where their next meal is coming from. They don't have the luxury of clean water, of a bed, or even a bowl of rice. And for just $1 per year – less than the cost of a small coffee at Dunkin Donuts – you can help. Please, don't let them go to bed hungry tonight...

    Ahhhhh!!! America as usual. Turning up our nose at another country's traditions and values. These people have had royalty for centuries. They seem ok with it. And most of this hate is just because their wealthy!! It's like people are mad at them for being born into royalty!! At least they serve in their military! That's more than you can say for some of our politicians and their kids!!

      WELL SAID, my friend. Thank you, for that valuable comment. "We" as a nation, is conditioned to condemn others for what they have – and we hoped we had, but can't ever get. They also forget, that this country got it's independence from England – and the first "white people" here, are from England. Oh, how we hate the world, we're a part of – interesting!
