Meghan Markle Prince Harry Wedding Shouldn’t Be Publicly Funded

meghan-markle

Absolutely no one, outside family and friends of the couple, SHOULD CARE about Saturday’s royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, but unfortunately that train has long left the station. The Royal Wedding as a “news story” is the biggest nothing burger of all nothing burgers, but what can you do? This endeavor, for some reason, is considered worth paying attention to by millions of people all around the world, who have never met Harry or Meghan.
Meghan Markle, today, is now one of the world’s most famous people. The Northwestern grad who played annoying characters and really bad television shows has truly come a very long way. In 2013, when College Gameday came to NU and Markle was referenced in signs, as Rachel Markle, we were all like “who?”

Originally founded in 1877, Wimbledon is the world’s most recognized and oldest tennis tournament, with a total viewership of approximately 1 billion people in 200 territories.

super bowl lii

The Super Bowl LII match-up is set and once again it includes the New England Patriots, who have become the National Football League’s Hulk Hogan of sorts.

by Kevin Bennett

Ballet, jazz, tap, and interpretive dance all require relatively similar costuming solutions. All are artistic, and all are athletic.
