Anti-Monarchy? Watch This Instead!
It’s a public holiday tomorrow and you’ll be chilling in front of the TV, but you’ll no doubt be surrounded by royal wedding this and Wills & Kate that…Here’s your guide to what you should be watching if you’re NOT in the mood to celebrate.
If you’re a morning person (it’s a public holiday, why would you be up?) then you’re pretty much stuck with back-to-back Doctor Who reruns on Watch, The Only Way is Essex day on ITV2 or the IPL on ITV4 (that’s cricket, for you non-sporty peeps). Having said that, Sky1 has an impressive array of comedy – from The Simpsons to Modern Family.
The wedding will be done and dusted by the evening, but you can avoid highlight specials by catching the latest Modern Family, Ice Road Truckers or Monty Don’s Italian Gardens episodes. Clearly, when British people think of future kings, they think of Mr Darcy, because he makes an appearance in two of the night’s movies; Pride and Prejudice and Hope Springs (well, that’s Colin Firth – but he IS Mr Darcy, isn’t he?).
If you simply have to give in, then check out our Royal Wedding page for details of the big day. After all, if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em!
