I remember getting up at the crack of dawn to watch Diana and Charles take their vows and I certainly plan on doing the same as William and Kate tie the knot. How about you? Do you plan on watching?

    I probably won’t be watching either, I usually don’t watch things like that. I really don’t watch that much TV but who knows what I will be doing. Thanks for the chance to win such a lovely prize.

  2. moriah says:

    i think i’ll wait for the highlights on the news.

  3. Julie says:

    Can’t wait to watch the wedding live!

  4. Jeri R says:

    I love the Royal stuff! I plan on DVRing the wedding, since I have to work that day.

  5. Beret Brenckman says:

    What a great contest! Thanks!

  6. Wendy says:

    Oh yeah, I’ll be watching. William’s a sweetheart, and I’m curious what sort of dress his bride will wear. Remember Diana’s?

  7. Corie says:

    We have BBC America but I’ll probably just watch the news about it on TV. But I’d love to have a free copy of the anthology book! :D

  8. Pam says:

    It’s too early to watch live, but I’ll catch some of the (sure to be often and seemingly endless) highlights.

  9. Marsha Saenz-Jones says:

    I was one of those who got up early and watched Diana and Charles, but I don’t think I’ll be watching this one live. I’ll probably record it and watch it later. Thanks for the giveaway!

  10. Jane says:

    What a lovely prize. Thanks for the giveaway.

  11. Carol says:

    I’ve been following Prince William since he was 8 years old! I cannot wait for the big day. Look forward to watching the wedding live on April 29th. Dying to see the dress and the big kiss on the balcony.

  12. Ashley L says:

    My parents were married on the same day as Princess Di was (different year though). I wish I could watch Prince William and Kate get married but I’ll be working! Please enter me into the givaway, thanks.

  13. Sonia S says:

    love the authors and would love a copy of the book!

  14. HazelB says:

    There’s something fascinating about a royal wedding, isn’t there? I can’t use the china but would love a copy of the book.

  15. Myra says:

    I think all of the hoopla is warranted at a particularly bad economic time in the U.K. Royals-rich. Everyone else suffering. Let every one enjoy a spectacular event that they can watch . Love the give away.

  16. A new anthology by my favorite historical romance authors – YES!!! Just knowing it’s coming out makes my month.

  17. Connie says:

    I’d love to have a copy of the book.

  18. Barbara Elness says:

    I probably won’t watch the wedding, but will check out the pictures online afterwards. I did watch Charles and Diana, but I can’t remember if I saw it live or later.

  19. Maureen says:

    I have to work that day and doubt I will be able to catch more than a few minutes of the wedding. We do have a TV in our lounge so I will try to peak a couple of times and see what is going on. I am most interested in seeing what her dress looks like. Once I see that, I can skip the rest.

    A new anthology! Great. I am interested in reading this one.

  20. Marti says:

    I loved spending the day watching all the wedding coverage of Charles and Diana. This year my Neice is getting married that day so will have to watch the highlights.

  21. Laura McClure says:

    I can read the anthology while I watch “Say Yes to the Dress.” It will be a wedding extravaganza!

  22. Lori says:

    As a 16 year old, I got to travel to Britain with my sister and mother just after the royal wedding. All of the stuff left over in the shops after the fact, really forged a need in my young self, to collect royal wedding memorabilia!

  23. Brandy W says:

    I don’t know if I’m going to watch. Maybe if I still lived in England I would be caught up in it all but it is so far removed from my daily life right now.

  24. Sue says:

    Have a great weakness for the pomp and circumstance, so I’ll probably be watching.

  25. Janet W says:

    I’ll definitely be watching: what a generous prize … thank you!

  26. May says:

    I am excited about the wedding! :) What a great contest too…

  27. renee says:

    Looking forward to this Anthology. Great give away.

  28. elainec says:

    I’m not sure I’ll watch the royal wedding this time.

    I’d love to be entered in the drawing, though. Nice prizes. :-)

  29. willaful says:

    How fun to be able to enter to win ebooks now.

    I have no television reception, so won’t get a chance to watch.

  30. Pam P says:

    Not sure if I’ll be around to watch but I’m sure highlights will be on air all over after. Lovely prize and I’ve been waiting to read this anthology.

  31. Tina S says:

    I won’t be watching live, as I like my sleep too much, but will probably catch it online somewhere later.

    And this prize looks amazing-I want to read the anthology!

  32. Janet says:

    This book seems as if it will be a very good book.

    I will be recording the wedding and not watching live that way I can pause, rewind and fast forward when necessary.

  33. Elaine L. says:

    I am somewhat interested in watching the wedding, but I just think that Kate(Catherine) lacks Diana’s charisma. My interest is kind of like watching a trainwreck – afraid to look, yet can’t turn away.

  34. Judy says:

    Doubt if I’ll be watching the wedding either, but the book sounds intriguing.
    Thank you Avon for having the giveaway, please enter my name.

  35. Sarah says:

    I would like to watch the wedding live, but I will probably be at work, so will dvr it.

  36. Lynn Davis says:

    I’m hoping to watch! I do remember getting up to watch the Charles and Diana wedding. My mother told me about watching (or listening on the radio, I can’t remember which) to Elizabeth and Phillip’s wedding!

  37. LadyVampire says:

    Wow that China set is just so beautiful. I wonder if you can actually make yourself put a piece of cake or what-not on it? I would defnitely hesitate. And the authors in on this series, wonderful. I would really like to be in on this giveaway please and thank you. :)

  38. Molly Maka says:

    I took the day off of work for the festivities. I will be up at the crack of dawn with my friend to watch. :) Can’t wait!

    What a great prize package!

  39. KC says:

    I’m not sure I’ll get up early to watch – oh, who am I kidding? Of course I will! Thanks for the opportunity.

  40. Joni G. says:

    I won’t be watching live – will catch it later all over the ‘net!

  41. lisa says:

    What a beautiful place setting–and looking forward to the anthology. :-)

  42. Fran says:

    I’ll be watching. In fact a friend is throwing a Wedding Party with tea and scones to watch it with. And I’d love to win something to commemorate the event. Thank you.

  43. Laura says:

    Oh I can’t wait for the wedding! I’m sure I’ll be dvr’ing it!

  44. Holly wright says:

    I might watch it if I’m off work. It looks to be very romantic. Thanks !

  45. Laney4 says:

    Yes, I plan on watching it. I’ll probably tape it, though, so I can skip through (boring/repetitive) parts of it. I just finished my honeymoon when Charles/Di wed, so I was able to be up early to watch the wedding before heading into work. (Sure seems like maybe 10 years ago now – and we are celebrating our 30th anniversary this July!)

  46. Emily says:

    I will definitely be watching! William was such a heartthrob for my generation – I had a picture of him in my room in high school!

  47. Maureen says:

    I watched Charles and Diana and I’m sure I’ll watch William and Kate.

  48. Julie B. says:

    I’ll be watching the wedding – and DVR’ing it as well, just in case I take a little catnap during the proceedings! It would be great if someone would rerun Charles and Diana’s wedding before the big day, too. After all, can’t get enough of those royal weddings!

    I hope you’ll enter me in the contest as well!

  49. Ashley says:

    Forget recording it, I will be watching it happen! Please enter me in the contest, that way when Prince Harry comes here to marry me, I’ll already have the china!!

  50. Carole Underwood says:

    I didn’t plan on watching Charles and Diana – but I ended up staying up all night giving birth to a baby :)! Once I was in my room, I turned on the TV and that’s what was on so I watched it. It was lovely and distracted me from the pain. I’m not sure what time William and Kate are getting married, but I may watch for old times’ sake.
