First off I want to make something very clear. I hope only for the best for the newlyweds. I pray a blessing on their marriage, their household, and the children to come in the future. I wish them no ill will.
That being said. The American people—over 30 million of us—watched the so-called Royal wedding. How much did this little shin-dig set the taxpayers of England back? More importantly why are there royals in the first place?
Please take note of what is in our constitution. There’s a reason for this. Royalty and nobility set up a permanent class system. Those of us—the vast majority of folks—will, as the popular song indicates, never be royals.

Why is Prince Harry’s wedding any more important than someone else’s? It isn’t, but all the pomp and circumstance surrounding the wedding create the illusion of a Disney fairytale and this is why the masses swoon at the spectacle.
Our media offers up a constant stream of articles, pictures, and gossip about the royal family. These articles et all have set up an acceptance of royalty in our country. Our founding fathers are rolling over in their graves at this.
As I stated earlier, royalty sets up a class system by which the deck is stacked as a commoner most likely will never attain a royal title. Thus the ruling class of nobles are always above the people. This is why it is forbidden in our constitution.
