As newsfeeds across the world become increasingly flooded with news and speculation about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding this weekend, at least one local man is pretty keen for it to be over already. David O’Brien contacted The Watsonia Bugle directly to express how fed up he is with the constant updates and cheap shots at various members of the future princess’s extended family.

Speaking to us this morning, O’Brien said, “I’m over it already mate, and it hasn’t even happened yet! I can’t wait until it’s all over and we can go back to living our normal lives, and reading rumours about how their marriage is on the rocks. I give it six months.”

For those avid royal watchers among you, live coverage of the nuptials will be aired on ABC from 7.30pm Watsonia time. While over two billion people are expected to tune in to the broadcast, O’Brien won’t be one of them. He said, “I’d rather pull each of me toe nails out with a pair of rusty pliers. The missus will probably have it on, but I’ll be watching the footy.”
