The Chaser’s Royal Wedding Commentary

 

Unfortunately due to restrictions imposed by Prince Charles’ office Clarence House and the BBC, ABC2 has been unable to proceed with The Chaser’s Royal Wedding Commentary. Most of The Chaser’s content relied on access to the live feed of the wedding day, which has been denied.
But here is a small sample of the pieces that would have been included with the commentary before or after the actual marriage ceremony. God save the Queen.

Like Queen Elizabeth’s father George VI, her husband Prince Philip has a habit of creating problems whenever he opens his mouth.

Good Luck England’s Rose

Wedding guest Elton John, who updated ‘Candle In The Wind’ for Princess Diana’s funeral, has released another new version to honour Kate Middleton.

If you’d rather watch The Chaser than the royal wedding, some classic episodes will be playing on ABC2 on the night.
