Hmm...despite being a wizened old republican, I can't begrudge 2bn viewers their gooey romantic feelings.
Notwithstanding, I couldn't help but chuckle at some of the wryer comments.
One, from a London Times writer, capturing Miss Middleton's strategic hoist from commoner to royalty, described hers as a tale of “shiny new money systematically raising a girl so perfectly to a prince’s eye level that she is virtually indistinguishable from the real thing.”
And then, a commenter in our own beloved Knoxville News Sentinel: "She has perfect teeth. She can't be British. I demand to see a birth certificate."
