A royal wedding

As you can imagine local headlines have been filled for the last two days with news of a royal wedding next year. Prince William, second in line for the British throne, has finally popped the question to his long-time girlfriend, Kate Middleton. Preparations are now well underway for plenty of royal pageantry next Spring or Summer. They'll tie the knot almost thirty years to day after William's parents were married at St Pauls Cathedral. I cannot believe we're going to miss the entire spectacle.

Commentators are going crazy debating the venue they'll chose, the designer of Kate's dress and even the exact date they'll walk down the aisle. Debate is also raging over how spectacular the wedding should be during an era of austerity budgets and negative equity. I've already seen reports suggesting the event could cost up to 50 million once security arrangements are accounted for.

I heard that the Royal family will be paying for the wedding but the public will pay for the security
