William and Kate to marry

After yesterday's engagement announcement that Prince William is to marry his girlfriend Kate Middleton, I didn't think I'd have much to say on the subject.

I'm happy to know they've got engaged, I'll be interested in knowing the wedding date, and I'll probably watch some of the ceremony, but that's it for me.

I'm not that interested in the whole media circus that's going to snowball from now until the wedding day.

I've avoided reading much of the Press today, as I couldn't be bothered to listen to all the 'it will lift the mood of the nation' sentiments they like to bang on about.

I read a quick round up of today's Press coverage in the Evening Standard, by my favorite media commentator Roy Greenslade.

His feature today was titled 'Press rejoice at prospect of royal wedding'

But my favourite comment on the engagement announcement came from Channel 4 News' Peter Snow, with a post titled:

Royal Wedding: For the sake of them and us

I think he summed up quite well how I think about the whole thing.
