Discuss.


PS this thread should not be confused with other threads about Princesses, such as http://www.arrse.co.uk/naafi-bar/171242-dry-your-eyes-princess.html, http://www.arrse.co.uk/films-music-all-things-artsy/171350-princess-productions-apology.html or http://www.arrse.co.uk/naafi-bar/171348-i-wish-come-out-closet-become-princess-tv.html.

I believe if this goes ahead it could completely undermine the British monarchy. Personally I believe there is nothing wrong with a female ruling, HM does a perfect job, but if we are to bend the rules on inheritance then whats stopping abolishing the institution in its own right. If anything this'll just give fuel to the anti-monarchists out there

I think it's shameful that we continue with this expensive, anachronistic and irrelevant nonsense. Why do we persist as a nation in propping up this franchise of the dysfunctional and corrupt? It devalues us as a nation when it wraps itself up in worrying about religion and succession when there are weightier questions out there. Of course, there are some good eggs but there are also some bloody idiots.






Of course, I mean the Commonwealth.

Disagree, the more it appears to be an ossified institution the more it will be ripe for criticism. Other monarchies are discussing the same point and the Spanish heir has got two daughters, but his sisters have got four sons between them who would conceivably be ahead of her in the stakes and he is moving for the change.
If the Crown adopts a more modern approach, more in line with life and equality then the more it will benefit.

Anyway Boudicca would be a good name for her I reckon, now that was a queen.
