Infact i see a very worrying turn of events today as Her Maj has expressed an opinion regarding the banking crisis,though i am pleased to say normality returned when Prince Phillip told the bankers not to do it again.

God save the Queen.

I would think that Prince Philip put them right in his own refreshingly direct way. Such as 'Get your d.... finger out, you moronic idiots' all practically without moving his lips.

My favourite quote from Prince Phillip was when he was asked if he'd like to visit Russia. He said he would "..though the bastards did kill half my family." Bless!

I liked that one Anna All of us would probably feel the same. I really like the old bugger, tells it like it is.

It's a good one! I like the old bugger too. He just comes out with things!

We have the greatest history,culture,Architecture,Landscape music art and entertainment and most other things you can think of.

No one does pomp and ceremony better than we do and this years events prove my point precisely in particular we put on the best Olympic games ever seen and all our Athletes rose to the challenge as you now expect this great group of countries to do time after time we have always succeeded (apart from football but i'm saying no more about that).
Our Royal heritage plays an important part in that,the rest of the World is jealous if truth be told.

We also could win medals for moaning incessantly about just everything really.

I can assure you that there's no jealousy whatsoever here. A century ago we were also a Monarchy (until 1910) and we don't miss it one bit. We also have our own 'royal family' and they are quite useful. We use them a lot in jokes.

No jealousy here in the USA either. I'm no history buff, but in the US history lessons don't start with the Revolutionary War LOL! Women have held and do hold very high positions in the USA, and I think that the country is very close to having a female president. The Olympic games were great, and the USA came home with a heck of a lot of hardware!

I have also lived in Australia for 4 years (loved it!) and Japan for 3 years (not so much), but never did I get the idea that anyone living in either place was jealous of the UK. I am a low maintenance person, not into celebrities, reality stars, royals, and pomp and circumstance. I could read about them all in the weekly gossip mags, but I've got better things to do. It is great to have pride in one's country, whichever country it may be.

Amen Jinvita. I have lived in the US and UK for decades, and I totally agree with you! And, yes, it is great to have pride in one's country.

I am not against having a royal figurehead, but I believe the present system needs a major overhaul as it is strangling progression. The Monarchy and the Establishment combined have in place a complex, self-serving, blanket that insures they all stay monetarily cocooned and above the law, and this (imho) has a devastating effect on democracy.

Indeed.
The upper echelon's first priority is, and always has been, to maintain the status quo.

Which is fine for them.
But not so fine for the other 99%.

When I was 21 years old I wanted to buy a small secondhand sub 100 mph sports car - MG Midget - but was unable to get insurance because I was under the age of 25. That was terribly disappointing at the time but one year later it became positively galling when Prince Charles was given a brand new 150 mph Aston Martin DB5 convertible for his 21st. No problems with insurance for the privileged then? I've nurtured an aversion to the Royals and the privileged classes ever since. Just one small example of the raft of inequalities across the whole of British society which the British Royal family personify.
