An estimated 2 billion people are expected to tune in to the Royal Wedding on Friday.
Whatever way you look at it, it's a lot of people. We just popped the question (so to speak) a few minutes ago on our Facebook page and you are responding in droves already. Here's a few answers already in:

Julie says simply: Wealth, pomp and pageantry

Abigail wrote I will be watching it from Bahrain. I think it is exciting and just what Britain needs to cheer everyone up. Some people are griping about the costs but it's not like we have a royal wedding every month and weddings are expensive at the best of times even for the average couple

Priyam in India doesn't agree, here's her take:While I wish them the best, I can't see why everyone must see this as a public event. After all it is a private thing and the thing about monarchy doesn't work with me. There are more issues to tackle in the world.

Tell me where you are on this one? Fascinated? Indifferent? Totally tuning out and turning off? I want to hear from you.
