Until about a year ago, I really didn't have much of an appreciation for the Queen.  That has really changed lately.  She is pure CLASS.

Which it what makes it so tragically sad that Waity is tearing it all down.

Let's be fair, it's not just Waity. There's a whole bunch of other things that will do it. But don't be sad, many other nations will go downhill too. And then something else will come out of it.
Just during the twentieth century British Royal Family has survived an abdication, a former king who met with Hitler, Prince Phillip's "gaffes," divorces from Margret, Charles, Anne and Andrew, "Sqidgeygate," Sarah Ferguson's toe sucking etc..., a fire at Windsor Castle, Diana's death, Charles and Camilla's marriage, Sophie's "Fake Sheikh" interview, and a few extra marital affairs among other things. For now Kate Middleton's entry into the BRF seems to pale in comparison IMO.

I disagree (which is of course ok). IMO, apart from the abdication and the DoW meeting Hitler, none of the other issues had the potential for harm that this marriage is.  For me, it's the fact that Willy chose her, Charles and the Queen did not stop him, and once she was in, there has been no improvement in her attitude or skills.  She is a ticking time bomb for them, and they only have themselves to blame.

If this was happening in isolation from social and economic change they would be able to survive, but it is the combination of having instant dissemination of events and a permanent easy research ability online, economic crisis, anti-establishment sentiment because of the economic crisis, and significantly growing republicanism in the UK and even more in the Commonwealth, that is going to push the monarchy out - my prediction is within 20 years.

It's not just about Kate.  She is a symptom, and she came along at a bad time.

And in all of that she is just a  bit player. The monarchy has to make a transition to from HM to Charles and during the next few years possibly the next decade so much can happen within the UK. IMVHO far too much attention is being heaped upon the heir to the heir's wife who so far has show that she can make a poor judgement in fashion, grin too much and needs to improve her public speaking skills.

I couldn;t give a monkeys what she wears or anything like that.  What I observe is that she gives the finger to the values and culture of the institution (and the public), by being workshy and arrogant.  William is responsible for allowing her in, and he's going to be a future Head of State unless something is done about it before then.

Mosh looks rubbish.  I know I keep saying but, but this woman has been having a breakdown and it's not over yet.  She has spent so many years pretending and she's finally lost her way.  She has no idea who she is anymore.

I'm also in a nitpicking mode......why don't the BRF stand up & cheer for the other 16 countries that the Queen is on their dollars & coins & stamps ie Australia, Canada, etc....I first noticed this when Australian athletes came out. Chuck & Cam stay seated & didn't even look like they bother. And they wonder why these countries wanna separate from the monarchy.

Oh and the Malaysian uniforms are the fugliest design I have ever seen. Really disappointed and embarrassed. I assure you that is not how Malaysians are usually dressed!

No, sorry. Pakistan beat Malaysia in the ugly uniform stakes. Dozens of talented designers and a thriving fashion industry and a crumpled shalwar/kameez with waistcoat was the best they could do. FFS!  Dead

Nah. The Americans' uniform was wrong on so many levels. There was the controversy about its big name American designer (Ralph Lauren) getting them manufactured in ... uh... China, of all places. How about Kansas instead? How stupid and out of touch could the folks at RL be? Well, to answer my own question, RL dressed the Americans in French berets and double-breasted jackets with brass buttons. An outfit only suitable for trust fund brats lunching in the Hamptons. A patrician outfit for 500 athletes who cut across a cross section of America and who have worked extremely hard expending much sweat and tears to get where they are.

IMO if there's any royal family that can survive, it's the BRF. I think putting the survival of them all on Kate's too-thin shoulders is naive at best.

May I respectfully suggest that you re-read my post in its entirety, for the context.  And I thought that we dish on royals, not other posters, eg calling them naive.

She was not calling you naive.  She was calling the assumption naive.

Maria's been in charge of this board for years and I have NEVER ever seen her dish on a poster.

Here is your earlier post along with the post to which you were responding.
Just during the twentieth century British Royal Family has survived an abdication, a former king who met with Hitler, Prince Phillip's "gaffes," divorces from Margret, Charles, Anne and Andrew, "Sqidgeygate," Sarah Ferguson's toe sucking etc..., a fire at Windsor Castle, Diana's death, Charles and Camilla's marriage, Sophie's "Fake Sheikh" interview, and a few extra marital affairs among other things. For now Kate Middleton's entry into the BRF seems to pale in comparison IMO.

I disagree (which is of course ok). IMO, apart from the abdication and the DoW meeting Hitler, none of the other issues had the potential for harm that this marriage is.  For me, it's the fact that Willy chose her, Charles and the Queen did not stop him, and once she was in, there has been no improvement in her attitude or skills.  She is a ticking time bomb for them, and they only have themselves to blame.

If this was happening in isolation from social and economic change they would be able to survive, but it is the combination of having instant dissemination of events and a permanent easy research ability online, economic crisis, anti-establishment sentiment because of the economic crisis, and significantly growing republicanism in the UK and even more in the Commonwealth, that is going to push the monarchy out - my prediction is within 20 years.

It's not just about Kate.  She is a symptom, and she came along at a bad time.

You basically put Kate and William's marriage on par with the DoW abdicating and supporting Hitler. And you honestly think that her actions, or rather inactions, are more harmful than the future head of the church cheating on his wife and marrying his mistress. Those divorces that you don't think had the potential for harm as the Cambridge marriage hurt the image of the BRF and made a lot of people realize just how useless and unnecessary the monarchy actually is in this day and age.

The Windsors are the most recognizable RF in the world and the Brits are very attached to them. It's going to take a lot more than a 30-year woman child who refuses to work and therefore is a non factor in the big picture to destroy it.

I just kinda defended Kate and now I need to have a drink. I should probably take a break from RD before I get banned. Irrational thinking brings out my bad side.
