British can put on a show

There's nothing like a British royal wedding to bring out the closet-monarchist in even the most die-hard Irish nationalist. And who could fail to be bowled over by yesterday's extravaganza, which was watched in virtually every home on the island?
The beautiful bride, a handsome prince, the fashionably attired guests, the uniforms and the magnificent backdrop of Westminster Abbey -- yesterday's wedding had it all.
When it comes to ceremony, nobody does it better than the British. They make Disney look like rank amateurs.
