Don’t waste your time on the royal wedding

By now, Kate Middleton will have already become Prince William’s princess bride. The royal wedding has been the center of attention of the international media for the last few months, but unnecessarily so.

Of course, it wouldn’t be terrible to be Princess Catherine, who possesses the same diamond and sapphire ring that Princess Diana was given by Prince Charles in 1980.

Sure, her wedding dress is arguably the most anticipated and celebrated article of fashion in decades; and sure, their wedding is expected to break records in terms of viewership, with over two million people anticipated to tune in.

But this wedding certainly isn’t the most important event happening globally.

In fact, there are far more pressing issues that deserve our attention right now, like a café bombing in Morocco that killed 15 people on Thursday morning, among other things.

What people fail to realize is that it’s only a wedding. At that, it’s a wedding of two people they don’t know and will likely never have a chance to meet.

Weddings between people we don’t know occur in Houston daily, and no one really cares one way or the other.

Of course, their wedding is obviously given a lot more weight because they’re royalty, but here’s the most perplexing aspect of it all — Prince William and Princess Catherine are not even American royalty — there is no royal family that belongs to America, so it makes little to no sense that everyone be so infatuated with their nuptials.

It’s safe to say that not even the English are as excited about this wedding as Americans seem to be. They aren’t even going to get a national holiday out of this event.

If you’re one of the many millions of people that woke up earlier than you needed to in order to watch the royal wedding before the sun rises, you might need to take a step back and think of other, more valuable ways you could use your time.
