    This is a real issue, it makes millions of people feel happy, just the sort of thing media coverage is for.
    Alas, I'm not one of them.

    And most of them won't have noticed that their benefits will be frozen for 3 years. Just the sort of thing that slips out while the media are diverted.

    Give the boy a break, not a massive fan of the Royals but he never chose this lifestyle. I get the impression he would drop it all in a minute as well to lead a normal life. Must have been hard losing your Mum at such an early age.
    He could drop it in a moment to lead 'a normal life' ....... There is no requirement in law that compels a person to keep any title

    Nothing against the guy as a person, but the 'poor me being born a 'royal' stuff is nonsense.

    Is it? I thought the main role of the news media was to give people an unbiased and true account of the world around them and the issues that might affect them.

    Like it or not millions of people like this and it affects them, hence the news coverage.

    Just because people personally don't like it does not mean everyone else feels exactly the same.

    I would imagine if he did drop it all he would still be pestered for the rest of his life, so not as easy as you suggest.

    The Royal Family and establishment have thankfully diversified to the extent that the colour of people's skin is not a problem these days. As long as she's no a pape she'll be fine

    It does indeed make a lot of people happy and they lap it up.

    Stupid people that is.

    Yeh, you are probably right ..... I have a solution though, don't have a 'royal' family, do away with all the titles and protocol and that way at least future generations will be spared the agony that poor Wills and Harry are going through. Sorted

    I don't see how two millionaires in their 30s getting married would really effect anybody who had never met them

    Not necessarily stupid, but people with a void in their lives that can be filled with either love for the royal family or cats.

    So anyone who expresses happiness at this news is stupid? Really?

    On some level, yes.

    I would say how happy you are at this news is directly proportional to how stupid you are.

    Yes that’s probably more fair.

    You just know that Union Jack hatted woman who’s always waiting at the barriers has a house that stinks of cat pish.

    My cat would like to express his outrage at being dragged into this debate ...... He would also like to point out that he's well capable of taking care of himself without sooking millions out of the public purse

    They're a lovely couple determined to do some good in the world.

    No, not in Africa or some glamorous location. They should get jobs in a care home right here in blighty. See if they're still smiling after several weeks wiping auld erses.

    Media seem determined to make this the be all and end all. Apparently, more important than people having to use food banks and living in abject poverty
