The Royal Wedding

There's a big discussion going on in Sweden about the royal wedding scheduled for next year. Although everyone is happy about Victoria finally forcing her Dad to accept the commoner she is in love with, they don't like her father asking parliament for an extra hand-out to pay for the festivities.

The general feeling seems to be: I'll pay for your wedding, if you'll pay for mine.

Today I heard the suggestion that if her little brother would just quit crashing Porsches, they'd at least have enough money for the champagne. Sounds reasonable.
