The Windsor-Middleton merger: is anybody interested?

Lovely quote from the Economist.

I HAVE yet to come upon anybody in Britain who is remotely interested in the impending royal wedding, let alone excited by it, and I pride myself on the range of people I talk to. The newspapers keep trying to drum up some excitement (The frocks! The double-barrelled guest lists! The first commoner to marry a royal!), and the great British public responds with a yawn and a scratch.

The French had to resort to the guillotine to get rid of their royal family; perhaps ours will simply expire through lack of interest.

Personally, I hope to be out of the country on the day.
