Its astounding how many people on here claim not to read the tabloids and only the upmarket papers.
Did the WSJ and TOL tell you that Prince Harry disobeyed an order or was that something you just made up yourself?
Do keep up... that wasn't me... but I did give the chap who posted the info' an 'informative'...... isn't it time for your thorazine?
 
If you feed it, it will reply, DO NOT FEED.
I seem to remember you stop replying after you lied about the Red Army Faction killing a squaddie when you were serving.

What info? Did the Queen tell the chap something?
 
Actually... Yes! Just like the wee voices arguing in yer heid wee man.
And now.... White Noise!
Almost as bad as Woger Wabbit stating something and then pretending it was all a windup.
 
Isn’t it about time to call a halt to this hereditary monarchy nonsense? We Brits have been pissing around for years with this, and they just seem to be an embarrassing bunch of clowns. With Nicholas Witchell.

It's still a million times cheaper than a President, and who wants a Blair, Corbyn, Ssrkozy, Mugabe or Putin?

There are alternatives to a president. Unicameral house? Elected monarch (worked for years before a French invasion)? Or just a head of state without the showbiz, like the Germans do?
The moment this is posited, everyone rushes to shout “President Blair”. Don’t forget, as a democracy, we could all have a say in what that looks like. It needn’t be a US system.
Personally I think the current system will stagger on. Harry is an arrow in the lumbering beast. There is much reverence for Brenda, but she is in many ways a product of the 19th Century. Brian, I think, may be a capable monarch. I also hope he will be a “merrie monarch” and unleash some fun into a run-down institution. William seems to be a peevish dullard. Harry may be best out of it all on the LA sleb circuit.

Yes, the German Elected Monarch 1933 - 45.

Mate, you've kicked the tits out of this now. Leave it. It's tedious.
There are more worthy arguments to be had on here.

Remember... what the dormouse said...

The current issues for the Royal Family are almost impossible not to be played out with public knowledge. The combination of the rabid press and the internet mean that every minutiae is there to be reported on and maybe embellished like ever before. For the newsworthy it will only get better or worse. 200 years ago the details would have been swept under carpet and none the wiser.
Go back a little further and the details would have been swept under the scaffold.

In days gone by it was "an heir and a spare". The spare often met a grizzly end upon succession of the heir.

Without their HRHs to peddle, and with the cash curtailed, Meghan's rush to the 'tell all' chat show stage has been accelerated. Partly for sheer spite and partly because the money is drying up. She can even argue now that she has no choice now, but to walk the boards to provide for poor, malnourished Archie.

Any interviewer worth her salt (and it's bound to be a 'her') will mention racism in the royal family/UK very early on in the interview. Harry (if he's even there) will be like those one of those nodding dogs you see in the backs of cars.

Once this happens (and I'm guessing within just a couple of weeks) it will be no holds barred, and semi-plausible leaks about Harry's parentage will pop up in the media, reducing Harry to being just another untitled and unroyal spouse of a soft porn celebrity.

I wouldn't mess with the Firm, and I certainly wouldn't try and blackmail them.

I could be miles out, and if I am, I'll be the first to admit it and apologise. But sadly, I think I'm right.
I reckon she'll start with the odd appearance on Oprah and then it's only a question of time before its Geraldo.

Cue Mrs Kruschev accompanying her husband abroad....


You can only imagine the piss taking from the West behind closed doors when it's brandy and mahorka time:

" F*cking hell Nikita, is that the best you can do?"

I know this will sound a bit radical. But hear it out. How about as an alternative to a Queen/King/President. When a head of state is required to press the flesh and greet foreign dignitaries etc, We randomly select some member of the great British public. Strategically shave them if necessary. Buy them a suit/dress, give them a crash course in etiquette and shove them out there? Johnny foreigner will see the real Britain, and the exchequer is saved a fortune. ;)

William is hardly Garth, either. Colourblind so had to get granny to swing his roles in HMF, fell for a stalker and a crashing bore.

House of Windsor has always had far more interesting X Chromosomes than Y...
Is that actually true??? Fascinated to know how a colour bind person can be a pilot as it scuppered me.

Well H was pictured during his pilot training wearing glasses, so not surprising. I got scuppered for no binocular vision, even before I needed glasses.

I wonder how he managed "three greens down and locked"?
