You know how the Royals are about all things being tactful.

You can't even do a Monty Python bit? They're more of a national treasure than the royalty.

" Listen. Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony."

I thought protesting against the monarchy was the job of those Antifa lads...

I think that's one reason those people got into those boats and got out of there a little less than 600 years ago...

From what I've read about old King Charley, he's probably behind it. I think there's a bit of trump mentality going on with him. No justification, just a gut hunch.

I live in a South American country and the news has been 24/7 all things the English Monarchy. Old people and the right wingers here, that all wish to be white, just love it while the rest of us just wish we can get our usual news back with the cycle of endless violence in the streets.

One word on why the Royals still exist...

'Tourism'.

This, simply put, is why the Monarchy shall continue to
exist in Great Britain, or in England when the other few
remaining countries decide to leave the Union. They are
one of the main reasons for visiting 'Bloody Old England'.

The Royals
Piccadilly Square
The London Pub Scene
The London Symphony
Fish & Chips
English Premier League Football (Soccer)
Big Ben
Shakespeare and Stratford Upon Avon

mmm....that's about it...

You forgot about King's Cross Station. You must be old.
