Why would they be Palaces if no one lived there? It would lose it's appeal.

Just as an aside, I'm wondering why so much bleating about the UK monarchy when Andorra, Belgium, Denmark, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Spain and Sweden run similar systems with their heads of state.
All of them are equally ridiculous in my opinion yet the UK is the only one ever bitched about on ATS.
Says who? You? Based on what information?

Perhaps it's because those nations don't foster an elite class of over privileged thieves.
