Don’t miss the Live Chat by Warwick PhD student Sam Lyle at the Warwick University Knowledge Centre (today, Wednesday 27th April, at 2 pm), regardless of whether you are interested, amused, baffled, or repulsed, by the imminent royal wedding.

The live chat will begin at 2pm (GMT), a link will be posted at the event page: from 1.55pm (GMT).

The topics of the live chat will centre around the royal wedding when considered alongside gender and social class, and aim to answer questions such as:
