It may seem like the world is excited about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's upcoming royal wedding on May 19, but not everyone cares! Some argue society spends way too much energy talking about who's invited and getting excited about an event that doesn't impact their everyday lives. Celebrities are people too, big whoop. But people idolize royalty (and celebrities), while others argue there's nothing wrong with being in awe of romance. Is the royal wedding a big deal?

The royal wedding has been a significant historical event for the royal family. Normal human beings are in awe of big celebrity, public figure or royalty weddings. It's the dream and sparkle of romance. And there's nothing wrong with caring about these pop culture moments. Check out Harper's BAZAAR's listicle of the most iconic royal weddings.

Other people roll their eyes at all of the hoopla over the royal wedding. Stuff.co.nz's Janan Jay writes:

I'm not a total killjoy (ok, maybe a little), but there is no malice in my lack of enthusiasm. Two people are in love, good for them. We all like happy news, myself included. But other than that, I don't really care about Meghan Markle's pre-wedding skin regime or a cheesecake she picked from a shop in Wales. It's months away - in May - and I'm already bored stupid by the whole thing. Every single scrap of incidental information, like aforementioned cheesecake, is tediously drip-fed, as if it's massively important. It really isn't.
