The Royal Wedding is an interesting slice of history. If you follow the Royals, they do many good works. I don't claim to know nearly what the British know, but they deserve respect, and the people deserve respect. My friend is planning a slumber/watch-the-wedding party with tea, china, cucumber sandwiches, etc. People who think negatively should keep their opinions to themselves and allow people who do appreciate the event to enjoy it.

I am staying up all night long! This is a very helpful list. However, as a Canadian I would suggest that everyone watch the coverage of the actual Wedding via CTV or CBC Canadian Television networks. You can guarantee that the names, titles, details of what is happening etc. will be correct. I cringed when I heard Cat Deeley (CNN) say that you address Queen Elizabeth as Your Royal Highness; she is Her Royal Majesty - quite a difference. Thank goodness CNN has Piers Morgan on board. He knows of what he speaks!
