As we all know royal weddings are low key and even if the couple wanted this then the public would not be happy. Even if the couple wanted something low key there was no chance of this happening, but it now the right time.
Some people are saying that the news is excellent and will help build moral of the country after just about coming out of the recession, but surely it is not the right time to be spending a vast amount of tax payers money on the wedding.
The publics current attitude towards the royal family should make them think about the scales of their wedding. Charles and Diana opted for a very large wedding as Charles was heir to the throne. It cannot be denied following this wedding the royal family has taken a battering of events that have occurred.
If the wedding is supposed to raise moral the royal family must be very careful with how much they try and make this seem like the perfect little fairy-tale, because as we know the couple have not always been match made in heaven which led to them to spit for a short amount of time.
Charles and Diana’s wedding which occurred in 1981 during the time of a recession economics was forgotten about which enabled the couple to have a lavish ceremony. Which in comparison to his mothers wedding seems rather selfish to make the tax payer spend their money on this.
When the Queen married Prince Phillip most of the cost of the wedding was taken up by her father George VI who used the savings he had made during the war from the Civil List. As well as this the Queen used 300 ration coupons in order to buy her material for her wedding dress.
