There were high TV ratings in May, by Aussie standards, (only quite a small population you know) in May for Harry/Meghan's nuptials, and Channel 7 won. There was a fair amount of interest then in all aspects of the wedding and maybe Channel 7 is hoping to strike it lucky once more. There's not the interest in the Yorks here though, so I doubt it.

Unfortunately folks I won't be watching it as I will be in hospital or rehab (depending on how the surgery goes next week - assuming the NBN can actually connect my phone so I can contact the hospital and my doctor about the surgery - NBN connected on Tuesday and they activated the internet but forgot to activate the phone line ... can you believe it????)

I am having a knee replacement next week - and have no idea what internet access I will have or what TV access I will have. It seems like the rehab has a communal TV but not necessarily TVs in the rooms.

I don't know that Aussies are that interested. I doubt if most Aussies even know who Eugenie is and even fewer would remember that Sarah's sister lives here.

This is Channel 7 who are promoting themselves as 'The Royal Network' at the moment in the lead up to Harry and Meghan's tour. This is as much about positioning themselves as the 'go to' network for the tour as anything else as they have scheduled a number of royal documentaries - one this Sunday night which on an IQ box has a 'series link' capability suggesting that if you record the one on Sunday night it will automatically record the others.

If people are used to going to one network to get 'royal' stories before October they may stick to that one for the tour and that means money from advertisers etc.

Windsor is preparing to welcome guests, visitors and well-wishers to celebrate the wedding of Princess Eugenie to Mr Jack Brooksbank.

Visitors will be able to view the short carriage procession along the route which will take the newly married Princess Eugenie and Mr Jack Brooksbank down Castle Hill, onto the High Street and Park Street and then back into Windsor Castle via Cambridge Gate.

Work is well underway to ensure the occasion is a memorable and joyous one for all involved and the council is working closely with a wide range of partners. To ensure that the day runs smoothly for all and for the comfort and safety of those wishing to attend a number of measures are being put in place, including:

This is the carriage ride route for the York wedding

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.dai...announced.html

It may be shorter than Harry and Meghan but the Long Walk is part of the route. People are still raging about the cost. And the compare and contrast visuals are going to be bad if the streets aren't packed for Eugenie and Jack. Now the press is making Eugenie out to be bridezilla.

Stories like this and the cost debate is what putting a bad taste in people's mouth about the York wedding.

When it's reported in the Fail it usually turns out to be imaginary 'family friends'.

Probably sounds better than what it really is "An anonymous internet user told..." or "The writer of the article came up with..."

That said, i am looking forward to see some pics of the wedding and the weddingcouple or some footage, less than a month left to wait

Neither of Princess Anne's husband's got titles. I think that it is a sure bet that Eugenie's husband will not get a title.

I though remember these sorts of things in the late 80s early 90s in the Mail - only we now know that the 'source' was Diana through her tame reporter Richard Kay.

Some are fiction but many aren't.

Well, if it was a family source then it was someone who knows nothing about BRF protocol. As per the article linked above, in what alternative universe did Eugenie 'have to wait' for Harry to marry first as he is before her in the succession? And if Eugenie and her parents really believe, as is stated in the article, that she 'deserves a wedding as big as her cousin's' then that says a lot about them, I would say.

BRF protocol is very clear - if two couples want to announce at about the same time the senior gets first dibs so if both couples were engaged at about the same time then Harry would announce first - as he did.

Except is this case, Harry'ss engagement was announced in November 2017, and Eugenie and Jack were not engaged till the New Year whilst on holiday in the Carribean, and announced shortly thereafter. I don't believe protocol dictated the time of the announcements here, but if you believe there is information in the public domain to suggest so, happy to hear about it.

What we have to realize too is that the people ending up with a bad taste in their mouth are the ones that actually read the publications that strive to make mountains out of molehills. These "people" are not reflective of the general public as a whole in the UK or elsewhere.

The first question to ask oneself is "what kind of a publication is making these claims".

Honestly, I wish Eugenie had eliminated that carriage ride from her wedding plans.
I think it has cost her a lot of public goodwill. It's simply not worth it, imo.

That's the part after the gate, so nobody will be lining up there as nobody was allowed at that part at Harry and Meghan's ride either (see for example this picture). It's just the way they re-enter the castle grounds. So, it is really only 2 streets that people can go and watch (and that need to be screened by security). So, indeed a short carriage ride as a courtesy to the fans who didn't secure a spot on the castle grounds and still want to see the bridal couple in real life.
