1. They just make me mad.

It makes me angry to see these wonderful people that were abused, attacked, taken for granted for 8 yrs, people we now would give a LIMB to have back, but NO.

NO, people did what they did last November, and I cant talk about it, but I am fucking FURIOUS.

2. Deep Breath!!!

I share your anger - no doubt about it. I also realize that being away from that incredible and unrelenting stress will help them be around, even longer because I strongly suspect that their work, here, is not yet done.

people.

Third in line for the throne, after the Queen - I think.

16. They're a lot alike...

...'cause they both use their prestige and power as it should be - to help others less fortunate. Two very inspirational people, and both are sports fans!

21. Thanks for the reminder of those rules.

Is there a minimum age rule for succession in the UK? I remember reading of countries literally having "boy kings".

Oh wait, some might say we now have a boy king! Boy plutocrat would be more accurate.

22. Minimum age is 18

If, heaven forbid, Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles and Prince William died at the same time, then Harry would serve as Regent until George was old enough to become King. If Elizabeth were to become incapacitated, then Charles would become a Prince Regent until she regained health or died.

23. Thanks, the complexity would make one's head spin.

Finally found a decent Wiki page on the topic. It's interesting but seems so foreign to us, just to maintain bloodline.

An novel observation from Wikipedia:
(snip)
The Coronation Chair constructed in 1296, with the Stone of Scone visible beneath the seat, has been used at the coronation of English and British monarchs for 700 years.

25. And then there's this

"Any of the first six in line marrying without the sovereign's consent would be disqualified from succession."

11. Watch the video of the last picture

President Obama gives one of the athletes grief, as always, so funny. I think I will miss him for the rest of my life.


Peace

I'm not specially fond of royal families, well not at all.

But Harry is really a nice guy, he has strong principles and never hesitate to fight for them.

31. She looks like she wearing clothes 5 Times too small for her size

The buttons are bulging, the darts and seams look like theíre pulling apart, the sleeves are too short and her breasts are being flattened. And itís an ugly suit. Maybe she thought it looked British or something.
