Think this was an interesting comment on the article ...

The Queen has done a great job. It will sink in 100% after she isn't around anymore.

I think this is spot on. Spain has supporters of the monarchy who are known as "Juan Carlistas" because they support J-C but not the institution itself and I strongly suspect that there are lots of "Elizabethans" here in the UK too.

It will be interesting to see how public opinion shifts when she dies because I cannot see Charles and Camilla enjoying anywhere near the level support of and goodwill that QEII does.

Princes William and Harry Open Up About the 'Real' Queen

Prince William and Prince Harry have watched Queen Elizabeth their whole lives, and now they're sharing new insights about their grandmother.

For one, the Queen – who always seems completely self-reliant in public – actually leans heavily on her husband Prince Philip for moral support, according to Harry

"Regardless of whether my grandfather seems to be doing his own thing, sort of wandering off like a fish down the river, the fact that he's there – personally, I don't think that she could do it without him," says Harry, who was interviewed with his brother by the BBC's Andrew Marr for an upcoming documentary on the Queen. Harry and William's quotes have been included in a piece in the Radio Times out in the U.K. on Tuesday.

The prince, 27 – who was interviewed before Philip underwent emergency surgery for a blocked coronary artery just before Christmas – says his grandmother would find the task of endlessly shaking hands during public engagements almost unbearable without her husband by her side.

Harry worries that his grandmother's rigorous schedule of opening hospitals, meeting politicians and greeting members of the public could be too taxing for the 85-year-old royal, who celebrates 60 years on the throne next Monday. "Yet she's carrying on and doing [the visits]," says Harry.

William is very close to his grandmother and is said, by those close to him, to take his lead from her. Both he and wife Kate look to the Queen for guidance about how to lead a public royal life. 

"I think she doesn't care for celebrity ... and she really minds about having privacy in general," William tells Marr.

The prince also praises how his grandmother navigates "a very tricky line" between "private and public and duty."

"I think she's carved her own way completely. She's not had a blueprint," says William. "I think it's very important to be able to retreat inside and be able to collect one's thoughts and collect your ideas, and then to move forward."

well, if they are worried about how the Queen is getting on at her age, they (Cambridges & Harry) should roll up their sleeves, do some actual work. "No Actions, Talk Only" comes to mind.  Dead

^William truly believes he owes the press nothing.  Can't blame him honestly, but he does owe the people.  And to do his "job" correctly, he'll need to be able to work with the press to bring good press to his COUNTRY. 

Now I'm not knocking that he and Kate are involved with charities (well Kate eventually will be, right?), but up until this point they haven't been great ambassadors of Brand Britain.  They've been okay at showing some charities, and fantastic at advertising for non-British vacation spots (Seychelles, Mustique...). Trooping, etc doesn't count because I see these as family events grandma makes them all go to. 

If people argue the reason to keep royalty is tourism, then maybe they should highlight places to visit.  Vic and Dan travel over their country (not because its a Jubaliee but because its on their schedule), so does Felipe and Letizia.

There are many other senior royals, ones who are actually on the civil list, who can step up as well. Andrew, Eddie and Sophie come to mind. Eddie, other than his work with the DOE awards, doesn't seem very active. And as the children of the current monarch, they could do more.

Harry and Will are both active duty military. I don't believe, could be wrong, Andrew did much when he was active duty either. They are doing their part serving the country. The Duchess on the other hand, definitely could do more.
