What occurred yesterday was a very tiny, southern, middle class glimpse of British culture. I didn't feel particularly proud of it.

Read the OP. :facepalm:
You said "Having pride in one's country is irrational" which is a statement that's clearly completely unrelated to the OP. Do you wish to amend your statement? If not would you care to explain how choosing to be proud of something you identify with is irrational?

Where did I call them the English Royal Family? This is getting tiresome now.

Not even proud of the reaction from the population and how everyone came together to celebrate a special occasion?

So, your not proud of the rest of the country, just a part of it?

I'm not Scottish, Welsh or Northern Irish. I am English and immensely proud of England.

If anything I thought the sheeplike brainless worship of something for no reason was pretty pathetic and made me feel slightly embarrassed of my country.

Yesterday made me very proud and grateful to be English. We're a country that takes it's freedoms for granted, and yesterday joined together to celebrate the marriage of our future king.

God bless England.
I agree.

It's fine to be proud, as long as that pride doesn't turn into disdain for other countries.

I was referring specifically to England. Where did I say they weren't the British royal family?

It was England that hosted the wedding and put in all the leg-work.
We all contributed to the money spent on security at the event. Numerous groups from the rest of the United Kingdom lined the event, for example the Boys Brigade and the Scouts came from all different parts of the UK.

You're proud to be English because they happened to have the wedding in England? :confused:

They didn't just 'happen' to have the wedding in England. England has been the cornerstone of the Royal Family since its creation.

As for the pitiful contribution of the rest of the UK, I think it's fair to say that England contributed by far the most.

Read the final line of the OP, then read my 1st post.

I deserve rep for this.

It made me proud to be British. I'm proud to be English too, of course, but England can't claim credit for the whole thing. I think the whole of the UK was well represented in many ways.
