    I hope they have a great time and enjoy their quick stay.

      I’m sure they will have a great time. The recession doesnt effect them or slow their lavish lifestyle. Sure we have to pay for their security, police escorts, meals etc. while most on this island are struggling, but hey – they’re the royals. We owe it to them.

      Next stop – soak the suffering British people by getting them to foot the bill for an expensive wedding. But hey – at least they got a Bank Holiday….
