lol i see... they've turned out alright under the circumstances imho... Anne is a paragon, and much loved and respected in a quiet unassuming way, dedicating her life to serving the people... Charles had a bit of a blip, but he has settled down now that he is married to the right woman for him, and i think he has done a great job with his two boys as a single parent.. both of them boys to be proud of..

Andrew has settled down into a much respected naval career and as an ambassador for British business abroad..

Don't hear much about Edward... which is fine by me :)

Well, it took them a long time to get there and they left a lot of carnage in their wake.

isn't that the same with most families though? Just that being in the public eye, when things fall apart in their family, the whole world is there watching..

I've heard it argued that the monarchy is no longer needed, and I don't really have a strong opinion on that, except I do notice how important they are to very many people still today, in the age of digital communication... So maybe she should use her Blackberry? ;)

Yes, that's very true. Close examination of anyone in the spotlight can be a cruel and harsh thing.

In the UK's case Taggart... it was a question of whether we wanted Her Maj as head of State.. serving her people as she has done for 60 odd years or 'President' Bliar...


no contest...
