Jerry Seinfeld evidently isn’t excited about the upcoming Royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton. In fact, he seems downright disgusted with all the media attention and excitement aimed at it.
In an interview with the Britain’s ITV show, Daybreak, Seinfeld called the wedding “an absurd circus act.”
He continued: “You know, it’s a dress-up. It’s a classic English thing of let’s play dress-up. Let’s pretend that these are special people. OK, we’ll all pretend that Â– that’s what theatre is… That’s why the British have the greatest theatre in the world. They love to dress up and they love to play pretend.”
He went on to say that neither William or Kate are anything special and said he’s happy the United States doesn’t have a royal family to deal with.
Seinfeld has most assuredly offended half of Great Britain with his comments, but so what? He’s right. Although Prince William and Ms. Middleton seem like lovely and genuinely down-to-earth people, they really aren’t special. Prince William got the luck of the draw to have been born a prince, and well, Kate is lucky he fell for her.
Nothing to see here, folks. Nothing special. It’s just another wedding between two people who happen to love each other dearly. Let’s celebrate that, rather than the fact that they’re rich and beautiful.
