What Americans Think Of The Royal Wedding

Top Content On CBSPhilly

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Next Friday, the world watches the British royal wedding. And one political watcher says Americans will be watching carefully.

While about 75 percent of American women plan to tune into the wedding it appears only half of men in the U.S., as well as 45 percent of those under the age of 30, are paying zero attention to the wedding.

America’s views on the wedding are unusual. 48 percent say Kate Middleton shouldn’t take a job after the wedding. But 53 percent of the British think she should go to work.

By a wide margin, Americans want William to be the next king not his Dad Charles. And a woman who is not with us anymore gets the highest approval rating.
The late Princess Diana gets a 75 percent approval rating from Americans while 66 percent of the British public approve of her.

The poll also shows that Americans by a wide margin would not favor a monarchy here.

    “are paying zero attention to the wedding.” Well, I guess I am part of the group paying zero attention to the wedding. My do-do stinks, so I was not invited. :-(

    the british monarchy is an english tourist attraction.why else do tourists travel to the u.k.? for the “good food” ? hardly. for the beautiful weather? not likely. so the british tourism industry is making a big deal out of the private lives of this otherwise mediocre windsor family. can’t you just see the queen and camilla as lunch ladies at your local school? apologies to real hardworking lunch ladies.

    I doubt very much that I will be watching the royal wedding……………it would be as entertaining as spending an afternoon, at a movie theater, watching a Grade C- movie………frankly, I am disgusted with our news media and all the attention they are spending covering this ridiculous display.
