Who’d be a Royal?, everything you do or say scrutinised and put in the public eye. Take Harry for instance, can’t even go to a birthday bash dressed in Gestapo fancy dress without it being all over the papers. Prince Charles, what a schmoozer, he famously wanted to be Camilla’s tampon, the press were able to listen to his mobile phone conversations and reported that little gem. Dear old Prince Philip can’t say those politically incorrect things that your Dad might say like “that wall looks like it was built by an Indian” without someone taking it out of context He said something even more tactless in the wake of the Dunblane massacre, Scotsman, I’m sure, will remember that.
Sarah Ferguson was sucking someone other than Prince Andrews toes at the poolside.

I don’t get what the fascination is. I mean, they’re just normal people aren’t they?

I for one have no time repeat zero time for royalty
.I wish we had a republic here tomorrow then not only the queen but all the parasites who live and are treated like gods can start to pay there way in the world, without everything being done for them.The trouble is there are too many people here who have been brought up like staunch churchgoers being brainwashed into thinking that the royals are directly descended from GOD .I wonder why when they $hit just like everyone else anyway believe it or not my father witnessed two men nearly coming to a fist fight as one argued that the queen had a special diet and did not have bowel movements.Go figure if that’s nopt brainwashing then what is?

Alistair, can I say:
1. You are anti-royal?
2. You and I agree on something?

I liked the special diet thing. How exactly do they extracate the feces? Did someone invent a special royalty only feces removal machine? Some of the brown nosing butt suckers might be what they use. Of course I could also be wrong. Who knows for sure. I think there may be some American volunteers for the job if it truly exists. Do you know if it truly exists. One would think that eventually you would see a help wanted add.

I can’t believe the beautiful actresses of Hollywood poop. They must use a special US version for Hollywood…don’t know for sure. Anyone out there know of a retail outlet. Joe, don’t you usually keep up on all the latest trends and gadgets?

Alistair – I am deep into “Scotland, The Story of a Nation”, by Magnus Magnusson. And, have learned that King James VI & V of Scotland / England declared he had “devine right” to rule under GOD. The same idjit who had his royal papal agents rewrite the bible – hence, the King James Version. And, not to gloat, I have learned through Ancestry.Com that Robert The Bruce is my 21st great-grandfather. Upon reading about my fore-fathers, all the way back to Duncan I, I have come to the conclusion they were all a bunch of half-wit, royal pains in the a$$. After wallowing my way through the book, now I know why, when my wife and I was in London in 1989, where we stayed at a small off street hotel at Kings Cross, Jim the desk clerk (from Scotland), was a kind of rabid non-English fan. After reading the whole story of English barbarism to the Scots, my feelings go the same way.

DKV, there was no special diet but in the months before her death Princess Diana was spending over $7500 a week on personal grooming services.
This included multiple daily enemas so that she never needed to do the dirty work herself.
No shit, I kid you not.

This is a pretty ignorant and disgusting and ill mannered thread.
Whoever gave ANY of you the right to to decide who another country’s Head of State should be?
YA WANNA RULE THE WORLD?
It is NO business for anyone in the US or any other country to criticize the Head of State of any country. The Head of State in question wields no political power, belongs to no political party and has a lineage of continuity and Defender of the Faith.
Other Heads of State fall into the joke category, ex-actors, basket ball players, Rap artistes????, lawyers, tinker, tailor, soldier, Spy. – all on a 4 years stint.
The current Head of State in the UK has personally known every US President since Ike and has been respected by each one since as the Head of State of the UK.

Because every girl between 3 and 5 years old goes through a phase when every toy and book they want are about princesses. And the notion that they too could be a princess and meet their own Prince Charming continues until they are dead…even after marrying a dude like me.

We don’t have to understand it…nor do we need to like it much. But when Little Girl wants me to read Ariel, Cinderella, Belle, or Snow White yet AGAIN tonight, I happily oblige.

My apologies DK, I’m usually a real happy go lucky, playful joker, but I was just highly annoyed at the way posts were sounding.
The word is respect. I was born in England, and I can tell you that the Royal Family (who did not flee the country) during WWII were a great inspiration to the everyday citizens. The current Queen was then a driver/mechanic serving in the army, later I saw her marry and start a family. Then her father died and I watched her Coronation all day on TV and frankly, I was struck by the vows she made which effectively denied her and her young family from ever being normal and free of duty.
You may think that being the monarch and Head of State is like a perpetual vacation in Disney Land, far from it. It must be like being imprisoned inside a goldfish bowl, your personal like does not exist anymore.
The Queen has my UTMOST respect, never failing the call to duty, vows and promises kept, maintaining the strictest protocol amid ridicule, and always being a focus or rallying point for whatever comes along.

As now, a US citizen, I do still have great affection for the Queen. She represents out closest ally and friend, so let us all respect that.

Moron, I’m sure there would be a few candidates if we needed a king and/or queen. Should I use caps for K and Q? I’m not up with the latest protocols. Also, I think the winner of the K or Q contest would also be amenable to wearing the robes, crown, scepter, etc. They love that stuff…I just don’t understand it. BTW, I have a very good friend from London that could care less…anyway that’s what they say. Might be saying it because they know we’re so jealous and just want to keep up with the Smiths or in this case the Mountbatten-Windsors…just sayin’...

Moron, Long Live the Queen actually means, Long Live the United Kingdom.
The regalia, jewelry and properties belong to the State, not the Queen. The ceremonies, State receptions and visits are duties of the Head of State representing the country, NOT the current government, thus keeping politics out, until the Head of State introduces the visitor(s) to the elected government of the day for whatever political business their visit calls for.
The Head of State does not award chivalry or State awards, the government of the day does that, but the Head of State confers the awards.
Clearly what is not understood here is the role of the Queen as Head of State and what that requires and what is some fairy tale fantasy.
Americans decided that they wanted a politically motivated Head of State/President (multi-tasking) individual for a four year term, like musical chairs. If this works for the US, then all is well, but it does not afford US citizens to criticize and ridicule other country’s choice of Head of State or Government.

Always remember to engage your brain before throwing your mouth into gear.

DKV, yes I read that story this morning, seems 2 meat content suppliers are located in Continental Europe. The Brits will be furious about this and will likely boycott the stores that were selling them, that’s an instant and efficient way to get things done. Brits don’t regard horses as food.

I was in Paris one time visiting some friends and we went out for Dinner to a restaurant, where I ordered a steak with Bearnaise sauce. It tasted “funny” so I called the waiter and told him have the chef taste it. Nothing wrong with it came the response, it is a very good HORSE steak. Yikes, the frogs are trying to poison me.!!!!. Garcon, steaks are BEEF. Oh, he responded “Anglais” ? Yep, that’s right I said and you can stick this up your derriere. I ordered Chicken Chasseurr to replace it, once I established it was indeed chicken and not shite hawk.

Aka, you have to admit Republic’s joke was good. Seriously, I have to say people are funny, of course we already knew that, but when it comes to eating people are really funny. My wife will only eat ground beef (fancy name for hamburger), steak (well done) and chicken. I did get her to try some Alaskan Halibut once and that went ok but it’s probably the mildest fish you can find. Before the Halibut she thought having seafood for a meal was a tuna sandwich. You know how us Catholics love our tuna… She says if her mom didn’t serve it when she was growing up then why try it?

I on the other hand will try anything. I’ve never had horse but wouldn’t shy away from eating it. Discovered last time I went to a sushi joint with a friend that I like eel. Wouldn’t have thought it but not bad.
