True, I only know a few old people who actually give a # about the 'royal' family, but I know loads who get themselves caught up in 'national communal
mourning' based on whatever the media spoon feeds them.
Remember the bank holiday for the Queens jubilee, I partied at the local pub, with roads closed for the piss up which spilled over into the street. I
didn't speak to anyone who actually cared she had been queen for 60 years just folk like myself enjoying a community party.
When Diana died though I was walking past the local 'shrine' of flowers at the town hall and stupidly said (too loud) to my mate how ridiculous I
thought it was as nobody who laid the flowers knew her any more than whatever was portrayed in the media.
Two psycho women went mad, calling me all sorts, I backed away and they chased me swearing and threatening to # me up.
I'd never seen anything like it, and I ran, just because it was the best option dealing with psycho women who I couldn't really defend against
physically for fear of the police reaction.
I genuinely dread when the Queen pops off, there will be similar psycho royalists I'm sure, and I'll probably pretend to give a toss just to avoid
Shameful though, it goes against the grain for me, but I can't be arsed with the bull#, I've learned my lesson lol.
