An article about a person who keeps track of BRF "work."

The 87-Year-Old Hobbyist Who Measures the Royal Family’s Workload

"LONDON — Long before there was such a thing as “Big Data,” there was Tim O’Donovan, a retired insurance broker who has meticulously tabulated the British royal family’s engagements with pencil and paper every day for 40 years."

This is probably in the wrong thread but I wonder how Brexit will affect the function of the monarchy and the royals?

The monarchy will need to tread carefully, if the economy tanks and people don’t have what they used to have, opulent displays of wealth and lavish spending won’t be tolerated.  QEII had better haul in her heirs & spares and give them rules to live by.  She has the experience from WWII.  When the people were going through a lot, her parents, QE & sis all pitched in.
