    Yes good luck to them all, not a fan of these two, they seem to want the publicity when they want it , but then cry about it too, was someone’s mother like that once .

    Agree Stewart.

    He's also had a lot of pressures put on him since being a very young boy. Can't be easy, staying 'balanced' .

    iv never been a fan of the royals but i look at it this way they are a part of our heritage and our culture, and if it came to a vote royalty or no royalty i would vote for royalty, enough of our culture has already been chipped away, so up the Royals, up the poppy and everything thats English, is it still legal to be English or do i have to be british

    Maybe, but they belong in a different world to the average person so they may as well be aliens.

    They are a huge and profitable tourist attraction.

    They have done me no harm.

    They do TRY to set high standards.

    1. See above. Wouldn't call that "high standards".
    2. Does that include old boy Phil and his errant mouth?
