Well, I knew there was a wedding, having not spent the last month under a rock, but I couldn't have told you the date. So I guess I'm "Other."

Harry? As in, Harry's Razors? That big online razor company? Maybe this whole wedding thing is really a marketing ploy to promote the brand.

I on the other hand am totally smitten with Meghan and Harry’s story and will be watching the coverage on 5/19 starting in the wee hours. Scones and lemon curd might be involved. Harry, bearded or clean-shaven, will be in the background.

From where I sit that makes you almost qualify as a stalker.

A couple reasons for keeping beard:

1) Beard has been his look for awhile
2) Meghan likes the beard

A couple reasons for shaving off:

1) He will be in uniform during wedding. So clean shaven may be more "appropriate"
2) He can always shave off, then grow another post wedding.

I'm choosing beard goes with the uniform reason the deciding factor. But wouldn't wager $500 bucks.

Poll - Prince Harry - Beard or No Beard for Wedding?

When I think about all we know about the “Royals” I cant help but think how very common they are. England will spend millions on the Royal Wedding in a country that has so many that are so desparately poor. They’ll claim it is good for tourism but I just can’t in good conscience give a hoot.

In other words, you think he'll keep the beard?

As for that other stuff. why not let them figure it out for themselves. It's more fun to talk about the beard.

If you find it fun and enjoy the wedding stuff -good for you. I have to say I find a 34 million dollar wedding vulgar.

And you think I won’t be watching that too? The story of the American Princess, heart broken, bravely returning to the arms of her own country? I’m smitten, I tell you!
