During an appearance on breakfast TV show "Daybreak" on Thursday, April 14, poked fun at the unnecessary media maelstrom surrounding the royal wedding.

Asked for his opinion about the big day at the end of the month, he said, "It's a circus act, it's an absurd act... It's dress-up. It's a classic English thing of let's play dress-up. Let's pretend that these are special people."

"That's what theatre is. That's why the British have the greatest theatre in the world. They love to dress up and they love to play pretend. And that's what the royal family is - it's a huge game of pretend. These aren't special people - it's fake outfits, fake phony hats and gowns."

Prince William and Kate Middleton are set to wed on 29 April. An estimated 2.4 billion people will tune in on TVs around the world to watch them exchange vows.
