Think of all the companies you might have worked for, the fabled boss that is rarely seen though held in feared esteem, it is everywhere, and has been for a very long time.

Telling the Brits to get rid of the Royals is like telling Americans to ditch the Statue of Liberty. The monarchy is a grand tradition, and a symbol for a people who thrive on tradition. It's funny, but my family has been in America since the 1600's, and yet I still feel a connection to our ancestors in Wales.
If the whole "royals" deal isn't for you, then simply ignore it. No harm, no foul.

O.K. I'll bite and go against your rant. While I agree the media and propaganda over the whole ordeal is over the top it is still a new life. This little guy has no idea what crap he has been born into and yet he is not even a day old and already people utterly hate him.
Well I for one am happy to see new life thrown into the monarchy and the world. His Dad seems to be a pretty hard working up standing man to me. I wish him all the best an hope society will let the little feller grow up!
I would rather read about a new baby being born and celebrated than all the nasty crude going around everywhere. Yep sorry no gloom and doom here. Just a baby. Ya babies are born everyday and I gave birth to my own three without any glam and headlines! (Thank God) But that is part of their lives. It is never entirely private. As we all know. But we can celebrate a new life and hope he can be a great man some day! Give the little guy a chance!

Is there anything more repulsive than the idea of "royalty", a class of people allegedly better than or more important than everyone else, not because of their accomplishments (no no no) but because of their "royal bloodlines"???
This is the first thread on the Royal baby that makes sense. You said it above. The royalists cant get it through their heads there is nothing physically or mentally unique about the Royal family. The are human beings. Why worship them?. crazy.
Id like to see them placed in ordinary jobs and their titles phased out over a few generations.
And dont give me this crap about the revenue from "their land" offsets their expenses. "Their land" was stolen from peasants simply because they felt that it was their "right" to take it.
And what about the Brits? How long are you going to allow this monstrosity to exist? Oh wait, thats right, they took your guns...

But yeah this royal baby thing is defo to much. Who really cares tbh because i dont. It is just another Mug or China Plate keepsake for the OAPs Royalists lol. All that memorabilia on sale with Royal icons printed on does my head in.
