    I have always thought that weekday weddings were more special than weekend ones - I mean, Saturdays are usually the day when Mr and Mrs Public get married on, rather than Royalty I have always thought.

    Harry and Meghan's will be on a Saturday as we now know, just like Anne and Tim Lawrence, Edward and Sophie, and Charles and Camilla.

    And of course, apart from Andrew and Fergie, all the main Royal Weddings have either been special Bank Holidays or been on a Saturday.

    An average of 67p to the taxpayer (as I saw mentioned in a Sunday newspaper a few years ago) is good value for money as far as I am concerned.

    This is one point of view but how about spending this money on nurses or the homeless or something useful.

    I do think that doctors, nurses, the police, teachers and other people who serve our communities deserve to have money spent on them, but at the same time, we do have a right to celebrate what is good about our country - Christmas costs money every year when it comes to what we buy - presents, food, parties etc, and people don't stop being ill at Christmas, neither does crime stop being committed then - one could argue that Christmas is a special event in the same bracket as a Royal Wedding is.

    I know that these days we have very little to celebrate about life in general, and I am talking personally as well as generally - it is nice to get these welcome diversions from what we think of as normal routine.
