Royal wedding fever has gripped not only Britain, but a global audience.

On Wednesday’s Riz Khan we take a look at the monarchy, its relevance in the modern world, the cultural peculiarities of the British paraphernalia and the momentary power to distract from a country in recession.
Comedian Jon Holmes and impersonator Steve Nallon join us for a lighthearted take on the event.
