I am afraid that the royal family means nothing to me.
And yet, the world would be such a very different place if it were not for the British people and as such, the British monarchy.
It may mean nothing to you today, but it has, and does, mean something to a lot of people around the world.
It has formed who many of us are, the language we speak, and so many other things too.
Plus unlike the Oscars or a Michael Jackson concert, this is historic. Something we should all cherish because once it has gone then the only place our children, and then theirs etc will be able to see such things will be in a museum.
It is not as if there is a Royal Wedding every year!
And it is not about how the wedding goes, or whether she is right or wrong for him etc. It is about history, carriages and horses, the pomp, the guards, the Red Arrows, the kiss on the balcony, Buckingham Palace, London and the ceremony that will be watched by millions, perhaps billions around the world. It is about the occasion.
Long live the Queen!
