    If they want security, they can pay for it themselves.

    32 million euros for the security, I believe

    However, a good thing in this wedding ... the wedding dress and jewelry are French-made (Givenchy and Cartier)

    Maybe the tourism and goodwill can offset the costs.
    By Royal Weddings in the past, this one was modestly sized. Looks like the people that attended the event enjoyed it.

    As an ex-colonial country, we generally hold the UK and her Royals in good regard here.

    Since I'm an outsider only, I only find it completely ridiculous.
    The British Royal family is actually a business that brings tourists to the country. The UK government just made an investment in that business, which probably paid far more in return.

    Interesting the figure I'd read (which was an estimate) was 24 million.

    We got rid of those imbeciles in November 1918 and now the Royal Wedding has had one of the highest viewership ratings in German TV history.
    Sometimes I just want to slam my head against the wall for hours on end.
