Yeah, the popular studs here are proof of that one. Men rule the world, i almost forgot.
And yet here you are cheering on a hereditary system of wealth, influence and power that has never had anything to do with sharing and caring. Their women were routinely traded to foreign princes for alliances and to act as breeding machines. Fancy that.
According to everyone here, that has nothing to do with reality. Royalty doesn't give a @# if you like them or not or what your opinion is of them. They do what they want. I'm failing to understand what you're trying to say here in this regard to, reality. Women have been breeding machines for well. Forever. What's your point? Men rule the world, and always have. I think this is the first time in history where Women have had a voice. Does that offend you?

Maybe they're going to apologise for the tax fraud, we're still waiting for it.
According to precedent, the wives of ruling Kings become Queen consorts but the husbands of sovereign Queens do not have the right to a title.
The 2013 Succession to the Crown Act ended the previous controvesial rule that Princes took precedence over elder sisters in the order of succession.
Prince Harry is to marry his American actress girlfriend Meghan Markle, Clarence House has announced.
The prince, fifth in line to the throne, will marry Ms Markle next spring and will live at Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace in London.
The couple, who have been dating since July 2016, got engaged in November.
In a statement, Prince Harry said he was "delighted to announce" the engagement and had received the blessing of Ms Markle's parents.
The prince and Ms Markle made their first public appearance as a couple this September.

I have nothing against happiness and I wish them all the best. I know little about her so i have no hate or malice towards her whatsoever.
My main probelm, being a tax payer in the U.K is that I will be footing the bill. It won't be a normal wedding like we would have. This will be a massive affair. They will probably say the royal estate will pay for it. Then ask us for a payrise next year to paint more of their castles and trains they don't ever use.
I'm not against the royals but we as a country are struggling in some ways to have the basic needs to feed and cloth ourselves. Low pay with food and the cost of living rising beyond what we can afford.
Yet we will still foot the bill for ANOTHER royal wedding.
Anyway. Congratualtions to both of them.

It seems many people in the UK see Meghan Markle as somehow 'beneath' the Royal family. I find it a really odd attitude, as she is 'common' just like them.
