I WISH. I'm in Toronto when they're in Calgary. My rugby team is even going to Calgary then for a tournament...

And what specific reasons do you have for not bowing down to our royalty?

I have no idea but I'm guessing this is the newly weds? Don't tell me people actually give 2 sh*ts about them in Canada?? I thought it was just people in the UK who were insane with royal celeb fever :/

Kate's hot; that's about the only possible reason I can think of to bother taking a look if you are unfortunate enough to run into the useless pair.

but out of interest why are any of you interested to see/meet them?

Because they're royalty, and it would be an absolute honour and privilege to be in their presence.

Because they're celebrities, same as any other. I think their story is so cute and lots of people fantasize about royalty (meeting a prince, becoming a princess, etc.)

Wow I kinda feel sorry for you... Genuinely how can some random posh girl (admittedly a hot one) and a guy who has done nothing more than be born into "royalty" evoke that reaction in anyone??

aka lots of people are deluded romantics who havent grown out of fairytales? I get the whole celeb thing if that's what you're in to, but the idea that they should hold some intrinsic importance or value just aggravates me. They met at uni and got married, like vast numbers of people worldwide, what makes them different or special?

^ I think that IS what makes them special. They're royalty, yet their story is so normal.

I wish people would stop caring about this nonsense. Every dollar that goes to institutions simply because they're revered or old is too much and could be spent on much better things.

Haha. "Normal" in the sense that they met in university and got married. That's about where the normality ends.

@OscarUK: you have to understand the media hype that the royal wedding received in both Canada and the US. It was ridiculous. Most people didn't care about the royal wedding at all until it became the most talked-about thing by news media.

It was never that she was "middle class" - it was that she wasn't royalty. Keep in mind that royalty marrying "non-royalty" was a huge issue.

They were watching Wimbledon yesterday, cheering on Andy Murray. Thought that was cool.

How are they of any benefit? They're just a public image.

This. I don't give a flying f*ck. "Royalty" just means your great great grandfather overthrew (murdered) some ruler who murdered the previous ruler ad infinitum. It would not be an honor to meet someone who did nothing to deserve their title.

As I said, I too think it's all just silly, but I do feel a tinge of pity for the Royals. They are stuck in the tradition. It would take quite a lot of courage to turn your back against it having been raised in it from birth. We are not as rich, but at least we get to have some choice in how our life turns out.

At least you guys aren't paying for them as well :P What really gets me is that the crown/royal family is one of the largest (perhaps the largest?) landowners in the country (including the entire seabed up to 12 miles of the coast of the UK), and yet we still pay taxes to these people!

http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2011/jun/28/prince-charles-income-taxpayers-rises British citizens are paying for this guy to be flown around the world and embarrass our country haha

You people are disgusting. You have no allegiance to your country, its leaders, or its heritage. Disgusting. No wonder voter turnout is declining and apathy is rising.
