#Royalwedding same day as the FA Cup final?
Reminds me of Tommy Cooper asking the queen
"mind if I ask you a personal question?'
"No, ..." said the Queen
"Do you like football?'
"Not really" she added
"In that case," said Tommy
do you mind if I have ur Cup Final Tickets?' ????

So Royal Wedding on May 19:
- It’s a Saturday, no Bank Holiday the bastards
- It’s also the date of the FA Cup Final, so that’s fun.

Be an absolute disgrace if the FA Cup Final is shunted from BBC One to BBC 2 because of the Royal wedding.
