The British royal family captures the attention of many people, and the buzz over the upcoming royal wedding is a prime example. The amount of coverage regarding the pending nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton has been staggering.
English Republicans to flood London with protesters
Crowds of English Republicans are heading to London to stage demonstrations and protests during the weekend of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding, according to the Telegraph. The term Republican in Great Britain has a slightly different meaning from what the term means in the United States. English Republicans believe that the monarchy should be abolished entirely. They are being joined by like-minded people from Sweden, Spain, Denmark and Norway, all countries that still retain monarchs. Though many people say monarchies are harmless, some heavily resent taxpayer dollars being spent on events like royal weddings and see monarchs as a Medieval anachronism.
US chains offering Royal Wedding food
Food items related to the royal wedding have been capturing a lot of attention. For instance, Papa John’s is baking limited edition Royal Wedding Pizzas, featuring a portrait of the bride and groom made out of pizza ingredients, according to CNN. Baskin-Robbins and Dunkin’ Donuts are making royal wedding desserts. To wash this all down are commemorative beers, such as Castle Rock Brewery’s “Kiss Me Kate Pale Ale,” according to CNBC. Several other companies have made similar brews, but BrewDog, a Scottish craft brewery, has taken a different tack. The brewery, known for its Tactical Nuclear Penguin beer that is 32 percent alcohol, has created an India Pale Ale called Royal Virility Performance, which is a pale ale laced with Viagra. The company is not legally allowed to sell it, but BrewDog created the brew to make fun of other breweries that made beers solely for single events, rather than love of the craft.
The $800 jelly bean
A jelly bean, according to MSNBC, has been found that bears the likeness of Kate Middleton on it. Other people have seen images of the Virgin Mary, Mother Theresa and Jesus in Cheetos, oxidation stains on buildings, clouds and grilled cheese sandwiches — otherwise known as a “Grilled Cheesus.” Now a couple from Somerset, England, found a mango jelly bean they say looks like Middleton. Wesley Hosie and his girlfriend Jessica White plan to sell the sugary confection with the odd coloring at auction. They expect to net about 500 pounds, slightly more than $800.
