I won't be, but people are going to be doing it yes. I might watch part of it on Youtube.

I'll definitely be watching TPM that week. And taking Qui-Gon to work with me to sit on my desk. And maaaaybe making some sort creative project to put on the board.

I'd say something about the absence of patriotism on these boards, but then I realized that very few people on these boards are British or Canadian (like me!) or from the rest of the Queen's realm. William's our future head of state. It is important to us (or some of us).

I didn't watch it, but I have friends who got up at 4am to watch it (it is noteworthy that these friends grew up in Hong Kong when it was still under British rule, and the mentality is different between a former colony (like Canada) vs. an actual colony (like Hong Kong was then.)

I watched highlights on Youtube and read about it in the paper. I appreciated the majesty of it and I'm not one of the cynics who whine how undemocratic it is.

I didn't watch it simply because I'm not a fan of weddings, though I caught up on the news of it all later that night.

You're not married, are you, Life? Mark my words, your opinion will change after your own wedding. Mine did.

I am working on a custom of Qui-Gon, kind of an Infinites version of him. It's not going to be done for tomorrow though. Sad

Hey everyone. Some bad news for those who planned to participate today. We're going to have to cancel the scavenger hunt activity. It won't work out how we wanted for several reasons. Sorry. Sad

On the bright side, tomorrow is TPM viewing day! Meet in the chatbox at 8:00 EST tomorrow night, and have your copy of Episode 1 ready to roll. I'm really looking forward to this!

NEVER FEAR! The Rogue is here!

We'll change it up- Qui-Gon says.


Qui-Gon Says: Take a picture with a "pathetic creature" and post it here today!

My son follows Qui-Gons example and has taken young Chewbacca under his wing.

See I thought it pretty cool too. As Americans we vote our leader in. so seeing how the monarchy does things was interesting. And it was a cool wedding, with and without it's traditions. I liked how everythings so old over there that just the location itself is something people would never get to do. I was happy for Dianna's boy! Correct me if I'm wrong- (and I'll try not to shift the topic of this thread- perhaps a new one?) But will HE be King when the Queen dies? I heard that Charles can't now because he remarried? But I also heard the Queen's husband isn't the "King" per say, which I found strange cause won't Kate become the Queen when William becomes King? I've never looked to much into it- probably why I find it so interesting right now.

As it stands, Prince Charles will become king once the Queen dies - however (and this is the important bit) she may decree that he won't, and will choose Prince William as her successor.

Prince Charles can still be king, the only thing that hasn't happened because he remarried, was that Camilla was not named as the Princess of Wales, but is now known as the Duchy of Cornwall. This was done out of respect for Diana. (Funny side note, on Prince Charles and Camilla's wedding day I was doing work experience with the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment!). When Charles is king, she will be the King's Consort.

Prince Phillip isn't the king, because being a king denotes that he's the reigning monarch. He stayed a prince so that Queen Elizabeth would be the reigning monarch instead.

As for Kate Middleton, she is now known as the Duchess of Cambridge. Which, as far as I'm aware, is the highest peerage in the realm. Once Prince Charles becomes king, or dies, William will become Prince of Wales, and she Princess of Wales. However (sorry, convoluted, I know) no woman of non royal blood can be known as a Princess, but she will - at least in the media (until she becomes Princess of Wales, but not before then). At the moment she is known as HRH Princess William of Wales. When Prince William is king I don't think she will be known as queen. but princess.

Pretty sure I answered all your points, even if it is in a convoluted way, but if you have any questions feel free to ask!

How do I upload a picture? I took one, but I'm not sure how you're putting it on the forum.

You can use a free picture hosting service, like photobucket. That allows you to upload your pictures and get links for them. Then you can post the link to share it.
