Wow! I can’t believe US magazine Entertainment Weekly has succumbed to Royal Wedding action, here in Hollywood. Indeed, it was inevitable as the most watched piece of TV set to romance the world via The UK will attract more viewers in the World than the Super Bowl or The Oscars.
CNN‘s Piers Morgan plays UK Herald with his thoughts on why America should watch Will & Kate‘s nuptials take place. Says Piers, “Americans are absolute suckers for royal weddings. When Diana and Fergie got married, you guys lapped it up. Every tiny second that you could squeeze out of it, you squeezed.”
It’s interesting that the non-Royals are the big draw, to keep the Royal family’s star hot on the tele, as Piers puts it. But wait, the Brits have more in E.W to contribute:
“These days, so much has to do with what people are wearing, like the royal-wedding version of the Oscars in terms of, you know, who’s got the best hat, who’s got the worst dress,” says Glen Marks of the U.K.’s leading photo agency Rex Features.
“It’s the whole story as well, so not just what’s going on with William and Kate, but it’s the referral back to Charles and Diana and the saga everyone can’t get enough of.”
Whatever the U.K wants America to believe with this story, we’re on board in Hollywood. It’s just swell to see a young couple take marriage seriously. Got to be good for instilling faith in love, commitment and romancing in a new generation of kids watching these two pleasant kids walk down the aisle.
Will is always a favorite with Maori-Kiwis of New Zealand. His late mom, Diana, chose to associate Will’s first ever appearance to the world as a babe, in Waitangi – a historic site in the first Capitol home of Aotearoa New Zealand. To see Prince Williams as a babe at Waitangi, go here.
Will you be watching this event in April?
