I wouldn't be a royal, not even with all the good things that come with it. They are our slaves, the queen doesn't decide what she has to do in the morning she has worked all her life, tirelessly for the people she represents. She can not retire she has to keep going,
The Queen carries out around 430 engagements each year..not bad going for an 87 year old lady. So she does work, ok it isn't digging a ditch but you can compare what she does to what any head of state does..she tries to big up the uk and she has done a grand job in my opinion, she has also put her loved ones in harms way (has any US president sent their grandkids to war?).
I think the royals will stay as long as the people want them and at the moment the public do want them.
You can say the same about any person who has been born into money,
Like I said I used to hate the royals until I got a little older and I researched into what they do, she worried when her grandchild went to war just like any other mother or grandmother would.

Again, this only goes to show how ridiculous this arrangement is. Why are former British colonies like Canada, Australia, India and South Africa, even bothering to pretend that they give a flying # about the Queen of England?
