  • I watched this on tv. I really hope they stay as happy as they seem, Diana’s boys have a special place in everyone’s hearts


  • The royal wedding was quite beautiful and congratulations to them.

    • Probably my favourite Royal Wedding! I loved the diversity and the inclusive nature of their wedding.


  • Doubt I will be up at that time to watch the wedding live, but I’m sure it will be all over the news shows the next morning. At least Harry looks happier than he has done for a while. Do hope it all works out for this young man.


  • Sounds like it’ll be a beautiful day ! No, I most likely won’t be watching it.


  • I hope to watch it from my couch at home. I’m looking forward to it and am very excited for them both. Let’s just bring it on so we no longer have to be bombarded with all these stories of Megan’s family etc.


  • Here in WA it will all start around 6-6:30 pm thus. Nice. Good time. Yes, I think I will be watching it!!


  • I will definitely be watching!
