Harry is to marry on 19 May, the same day as the FA Cup Final.

How inconsiderate. If they’d chosen a different day, we could have had 2 crowd free days out instead of one :-0

:-| :-| :-| :-|. How very dare he if he had planned it a few days later he could have timed it on the same day as my birthday and sent me an invitation to party :-D :-D :-D :-D

Sounds like a good time to go away on holiday.


LaGooner Report 15 Dec 2017 19:41

so if the FA cup is televised, is the royal wedding going to be as well? if so how will that work I wonder?

in the hebrides

Probably depends on which channel has the football rights.

Visit London website, not updated since the Final was announced, suggests the shops will be nice & quiet.

For those of us who have little interest in either event, it’ll be a good day to go out :-D

Mind Harry can always get his double Alexander Armstrong to stand in if he wants to go to the match.

;-) :-D

FA cup is scheduled for Sky sports and BBC according to website


Sharron Report 15 Dec 2017 23:08

Nothing on tele that day then.


MotownGal Report 16 Dec 2017 08:25

London may not be that quiet. Football fans usually get into London from about 8am and wander around the West End before they go to the match.

I only made that mistake once, and got swept along in a tide of football scarfs!

:-D :-D :-D :-D

Just so that I am not only known as a Christmas Grinch, I couldn't give a rodent's rectum about either event :-0 :-0

:-D :-D :-D

PS I have nothing against Prince Harry nor his Fiancé, but I do find the media hysteria covering the pair over the top :-0


ElizabethK Report 16 Dec 2017 09:46

Both events will have to be policed :-(


Barbra Report 16 Dec 2017 11:36

Cup final on our television hope the best team win :-D :-D ;-)
