It's wonderful that all British people are so interested in the royal wedding!

Li: A royalist 保皇派。

Michelle: What will you be doing on April 29?

Man: To be honest, I'm not quite sure. I haven't got anything marked in my diary. Is there something I should be worried about?

Michelle: Think about it. What's happening?

Man: To be honest, I'm not too great, politically.

Michelle: I'm just going to tell you! It's Kate and William's day of their marriage!

Man: OK, well I'm not a royalist so to be honest I'm probably going to be sat at home watching TV. Not really too concerned about the future of the monarchy and to be honest it's just a wedding between two upper class people.

Li: 这位男子说,it's just a wedding between two upper class people 那只不过就是两个上层人之间的婚礼罢了。He's definitely not a royalist!
