  • Will ride on anything for profit??? Unbelievable! For this ridiculous price I’d personally fly to the United Kingdom, book a fancy hotel and watch the wedding there or go where fans are allowed to view the couple!

    Will ride on anything for profit??? Unbelievable! For this ridiculous price I’d personally fly to the United Kingdom, book a fancy hotel and watch the wedding there or go where fans are allowed to view the couple! I can even buy loads of wedding souvenirs. I’d also feel really ridiculous watching this in a wedding attire. Whoever is behind this ridiculous and yet hilarious idea should get fired. Guess what? I’m enjoying the royal wedding right now at the comforts of my living room drinking free wine and cheese courtesy of our fridge. Even that helicopter ride is not worth it! I’d rather watch this with my bffs and gossip non stop about the funny headpieces of the guests in my pjs. I think I’ve said ridiculous too many times...lol

  • This is hilarious! I can totally relate but if the $10,000 comes with the package of 2 nights of hotel stay and a ride on an helicopter over mount Kenya, then it isn't a bad deal...

    This is hilarious! I can totally relate but if the $10,000 comes with the package of 2 nights of hotel stay and a ride on an helicopter over mount Kenya, then it isn't a bad deal... Well, for citizens of the country and neighboring countries. This is another strategy to make money and create a name for the hotel. However, if the ticket to go to Kenya and pay such an amount is almost equivalent to attending he 2, 600 castle capacity wedding in UK, then I for one would prefer going to the UK to watch just like everyone else.
