Nice post topic once again!
I personally am "Pro-Royal" I like that the UK have a Monarchy, It strengthens for me the feeling of who I am, where I come from.
The Royal family have alot more power than they let on, I will get onto this later!
The Royal Family do a great deal of good for the world. They also do not exactly cost the world either "Head of State expenditure has reduced
significantly over the past decade, from £87.3 million in 1991-92 to £37.4 million in 2005-06. In the year 2005-06 The Queen cost the taxpayer just
62 pence per person.
The Prince of wales has his own trust set up to help under priveledged young people. See link.
The Late Princess of Wales did an awful lot of work for the good of mankind.
(Untill the Royal family killed her off!)
The Queen, Her official title in the UK is "Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and
of Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith", is an excellent ambassador for the UK and visits many
leaders of Foreign countries.
See this website for a brief explanation to her head of state status in the commonwealth:
Now if you read the following website it is cleverly disquising the extent of power the Queen holds, through the Privvy Council.
"The Privy Council retains some limited, formal functions.
For example, the Privy Council is concerned with the affairs of Chartered Bodies, the 400 or so institutions, charities and companies who are
incorporated by Royal Charter.
The Privy Council also has an important part to play regarding certain UK statutory regulatory bodies covering a number of professions (mainly in the
healthcare field) and in the world of higher education."
They call this limited, to be the one theoretically in charge of all these institutions, institutions containing the most powerful people in the
commonwealth! this hardly classed as limited power!
See the link to find out all of the institutions the Queens Privvy council has control of:
"Royal Earlswood Institution for Mental Defectives" used to be called "Asylum for idiots" Sorry couldn't resist
But on the whole I think you will agree they are some very powerful institutions!
The Privvy council also is involved in the appointment of high sheriffs, scary guys who lurk in the shadows of the legal system giving advice to high
"The office of High Sheriff has its roots in Saxon times and is the oldest continuous secular office under the Crown.
[The word 'Sheriff' is derived from 'Shire Reeve' - the office of a Reeve being a chief magistrate, in this case responsible for law enforcement
for the shire. Shire means county - for example the County of Lancaster is called Lancashire.]
The High Sheriff is the Keeper of The Queen's Peace in a County and executes judgements of the High Court through an Under Sheriff. Office is held
for one year during which the High Sheriff is responsible for the well-being of Her Majesty's Judges in the county, and other public duties."

The reason Diana was killed is pretty simple whether right or wrong.
An estranged member of the Royal family was preparing to get engaged and have the children of an Egyption national who also happened to be a Muslim.
The only faith permitted in the Royal family is that of the church of England. Even a roman catholic would be barred from entry, (No Camilla is not
Roman Catholic, it was purley rumour)
But all in all I do love the fact we have a Royal Family, I believe they secretly work to keep us safe from New kids on the block like the "NWO"
Oh well GOD SAVE THE QUEEN,
P.S Canada please keep the faith
