David Quinn: RTE's Will and Kate coverage is out of tune with viewers

I'VE been in Australia and New Zealand visiting family. In both countries one topic has been absolutely unavoidable, namely next week's royal wedding.
On the Air New Zealand flight from Brisbane to Wellington, for example, we were presented by the flight attendants with our coffee in cups that were the last word in cheesiness. Emblazoned on the sides of the cups were the words 'Will n Kate foreva' (sic), and 'I love u princess'.
In Wellington we came across notices in shop windows advertising special royal wedding parties.
