Well patritoism is about making scarfices for your country, and I don't see any royals doing that - just taking from it.

in this statement you choose to ignore the fact that prince harry and william are both soldiers if that's not making a sacrifice's then what is?? oh I forgot that in your logic they only joined to endanger the life of the average soldier

so nicking a helicopter to land on your girlfriends lawn is making a sacrifice is it?

Them being in the services is a pure PR stunt, so they can wear a few medals and look good standing on a balcony gracing us mere mortals with a wave or 2.

How did the Royal family take away my power?......which particular power did they take?

I agree,they are token soldiers,not real ones.
They will be coddled and protected....it is PR.
I highly doubt,regardless of what they might say,that they have the intestinal fortitude to lead on the frontlines,after being pampered their whole lives.

Why don't you try actually researching just how much people like Princess Ann and Prince Charles do for charity. Many lives have been turned around by the Prince's Trust. My nephews was one of them. It's very easy to throw mud and join the herd that are ranting about the Royal Family with no real insight or understanding of the work they do behind the scenes and without publicity.

Times have changed. The civil list has been abolished and the crown estate is now paying for itself. The actual wedding was paid for by the families. Granted, security has been paid by the tax payer but the same kind of security occurred when the pope visited and when Obama visits next month.

I think the mass turnout today shows what support the Royal Family still has in the UK. Just because we have enjoyed the day and enjoyed a moment away from the doom and gloom, doesn't make us unaware of their shortcomings, I am well aware of them. However, as stated, I have also made myself aware of many lives they have genuinely touched and changed for the better.

The riots and destruction caused by anti royalists and protestors in London a few months back probably cost far more to fix. Just food for thought.

And why should I get called on it?

this thread isn't about me, and what I may or may not have done in my life.

This thread is about a huge waste of money and resources, from a family who do little but take from this country.

Going out on the front line where you are in very real danger of being shot or worse is making a sacrifice stop being selective with the information you are using to make your argument. PR or no PR he still when't and served for this country have you???

The Monarchy is the symbol of your country. Whether you like that or not is irrelevant. And this wedding is showing your country in a spectacular way..

Who are we as a people if we don't have institutions our nations can be proud of, or at least recognize as being "you". They live rich pampered lives.

So do politicians.

And when you look at the good the Monarchy does for your country, for your image around the World, for charity and so on .. and compare it to what ... what? .. What Tony Blair has done for you? David Cameron? Please...



Britain is one of the most hated countries in the world, because of the Monarchy. Just wtf are you talking about?

LOL

The OP doesn't even know what his own point is any more... OTHER THAN HATE! i hate i hate blah blah blah waffle waffle


You may aswel say who else hates the Royals & British, don't cover you're opinion in BS my friend, get you're hate out of the system, don't get me wrong i don't like the rich snobby people and i'm not keen on the royals either but, the only reason i hate them is because well... they have alot more than me, and they are richer & happier, but still its apart of our history, it is apart of our pride, and apart of being British, with out them i would lose alot of that, i would become confuse just who we was and where we come from, and i don't want to lose that we have a very long history with the royals being center pin for all this, i don't want to kick them out because i'm a jealous fool, its a major part of our culture

It makes me happy to see all thos people celebrating today & waving the flag, everybody is more united, everybody is happy, and to me the cost of it goes out the window when you see that.. you can't really put a price tag on that, besides over the years the British public have given BILLIONS TO THE WORLD IN AID, can we not have our own bit of fun for a change, after all everybody loves a good wedding don't they?

Its about Britishness & pride something you wouldn't understand if you are not British or if you are British and still find and excuse to hate then i say Native, still can't find it? then go ask the doctor for some anti depressants. x

Being a patron of a charity, i.e. lending your name to it does not mean doing charitable works, as I'm sure you are well aware.

When they start giving some of their own money away, I might be a bit more impressed, in the meantime, charles has been rumbled again with his alleged "organic" duchy products which turn out to be not organic at all.
Yet another example of them exploiting their names and getting even MORE wealth off the back of what we have given them.

Really,people getting killed by their own government,refusing to step down and the main event is....Royal Wedding.
Qatar,Syria,Iraq,Afghanistan,Libya,Bahrein and some others are in extreme turnmoil, a revolution of sorts,disposing of old monarchic and eternal leaders and all thats being talked about is ROYAL WEDDING.

I can't imagine the stupidity when the Queen dies,wich could happen anytime since she is pretty old.


The irony is if you try to focus on whats actually happening in the world, you're just a negative person, or an angry person.

I say f whoever isn't angry or negative about the whole situation. It makes me sick to my stomach and if it doesn't effect other people in this way I think there must be something mentally wrong with them.
