Of course Poppy
If the Government chose to “do away with the Monarchy” … I suspect there would be a lengthy, involved legal battle to get the Agreement signed in 1760 overturned and the “Crown Lands” handed back to the heirs of George III.
If they were “done away with”, I think the legal battle, would be brief, and off to social housing
There must be a few TV producers feeling that they have missed an opportunity. If only Meghan’s father has voiced his position a year ago, what a fantastic Saturday evening singing, dancing and speech making reality TV talent contest they could have had with the prize for the winner to be the stand in giver away. I’d have called it Stand By Me.
Phil Collins, Eric Clapton and, of course, Ben E King…
That production pitch would have won you a Bafta, Golden Globe or whatever else it deserves, David, and eclipsed the wedding itself
@Bill… “off to social housing”…
Howabout an eleventh-floor flat in a Grenfell-type tower-block? I’m sure there will be a tenant family who would do a council swap, as an act of generosity to the ex-Royals
The World has gone totally BARMY!
Even the BBC R4 Shipping Forecast has been rescheduled!!!
Sounds quite appropriate Peter.
Really precious what you have written Peter ,probably Meghans dad wont get there ,but at least you have had your say. Well done Peter.
You are always quick to affirm and raise others up, Carol. Such generosity of spirit as yours is what the bitter-sweet world needs more of… … and happiness is so deeply and unfairly distributed across its face… so thank you and many blessings on you and yours.
Well thank goodness that probs’ been resolved, Charlie is walkin’ ‘er up t’ Aisle, Phew!!!
The royal wedding gives the UK an economic boost, maybe up up to a billion. Who says the royals are a drain on the public purse.
I wonder how many of you on this Thread are brave enough to tell us a little about your own Wedding Day stuff… ??? (if, indeed, you are or were married)…
I’ve started a new Thread and I hope to see some of you offering us a little joke… or was it really all that bad
I shall really be surprised what name Markel will use in the US.
All names of aristocracy were forbidden in the Constitution to native born Americans. To wit, and I quote WikiPedia, The Title of Nobility Clause is a provision in Article I, Section 9, Clause 8 of the United States Constitution.
“No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.”
Ouuppsss … ;^)
Meghan Mountbatten-Windsor, presumably.
Grace Kelly seemed to cope. The young royals also use the name Wales. Megan is a good welsh name, I’m not sure about the h though.
