Well we had a great party and invited all our friends, most of whom were actually Aussies who made a great effort to dress up and have lots of fun. I was surprised at the number of people who were genuinely interested in wanting to watch the event on our big TV. Royal Weddings don't happen very often and it doesn't matter what nationality you are, it was a fantastic day to be celebrated by everyone all over the world!
At the end of the day as alot of posters have wrote already stated, most of us live in this lovely place now so what does it really matter how much it cost and who paid for it..i dnt pay tax there so it really doesnt bother me in the slightest....
The middletons are estimated to be worth in excess of 30million quid.......not bad for knocking out a few party bags :-)[/QUOTE]
And she is classed as a commoner!!!! Bloody hell....they must have some wealthy commoners in her neck of the woods lol
Commoner is the term used for Non Royals. The Middletons were not of working class standards. Kate went to St Andrews University and Pippa went to Edinburgh University and both were socialising and mingling with royalty.
Good luck to the Middleton's but to be fair, the father is a "Commoners" from Leeds and the mother a "Commoner" from a working class mining/labouring family from Sunderland. Before they made their millions selling party bags they worked for BA The father as a dispatcher and the mother as a trolley dolly.
It would be fair to say that because of their business success the Middletons could be called Middle Class (if people could be bothered to care) and the fact that the Middleton children mingled with societies elite is purely down to the success of that business and the money made through hard work.
Mr Middletons family have been discovered to be distantly related to a family which makes Catherine and William fifth cousins, however it is not clear if this "Discovery" was made before or after it became known they would marry.
This just all goes to show that if you get a business idea that makes you millions then you might just give your children opportunities to rise in the social strata :-)
Oh and in case you wonder, I hope William becomes the next King of England in place of Charley Farley.
