And why would anyone care about the Palaces, the pageantry (such as Changing the Guard) etc when there are no Royals to give it any meaning?
After all, look at Greece - got rid of their King some years back, but still have soldiers poncing about and they just look daft

Easily done I should have replied to her post rather than just type and leave confusion!
I'm amazed to be honest some didn't know about the royals who have seen combat duty
I respect them for that,they don't have to but there willing to risk all for this country in doing so
One: You can't solve the world's hunger problem just by throwing money at it. If it were that easy it would have been done a long time ago. There are massive logistical and infrastructure related works that need to happen to even begin tackling the problem. Many of the world's hungry live in areas that can't be easily cultivated, and those that do may not know even know how to properly maintain a farm, learn crop rotation patterns, etc. You can throw money at it all day, but the issue is getting people to change.

I believe the World Health Organization put out a
stat that said 40 billion dollars could end world hunger permanently.
So is trading in a palace it's holdings and 5 residents to save a billion people worth it ?
It's genocide not to.
Or we can let them prance around a while longer for tourists....

As of this post approx. 55% are in favour of abolishing the monarchy!!
Based on the current count the monarchy are in trouble.
I suspect that if it was put to the UK electorate the in favour % would be higher than this.
