    Name the kid “Simba”, and get Elton John to rework one of his old songs for him (like he did for Nanna Diana).

    You know, I always did think the entire concept of “royalty” should’ve died out in 1776…..and of course, I mean 1776 B.C. …………..

    Hope they bypass granddad for the succession, as in precedent and justice they should. Edward VIII had to abdicate because he insisted on marrying a divorcee.
    Charles is not only married to a divorcee but is himself
    divorced. A double DQ…. Tho’ at the rate things are going
    his mother may well outlive him!

    …they’re claiming the kid’s doing wonders for the economy at the moment.


    It is also claimed the cost of the Royal family to the average British tax-payer is a loaf of bread annually. I’m just a humble British taxpayer, not a British citizen so my grumbling is rather limited, but I want that loaf to be the plainest, cheapest, meanest loaf on the market.

    That’s pretty much the was Harper behaves. Sells the royalty like it’s the best way to keep Canada conservative; stampy about the royalty, books about the royalty, tv shows about the royalty, blames Quebec (one of his own provinces, so far) for not wanting a foreign royalty this side of the Atlantic (divide to rule). Uuuugh, embarassing.

    Americans don’t know what a nappy is and it’s a American cartoonist for an American audience.

    It’s a pity that your “humble opinion” has little or no basis in fact. Only the Queen and the Heir Apparent (Prince Charles) receive any money from the Civil List, and this is money paid to the Monarch as part of an agreement made more than 100 years ago in which the Crown gave control (and massive income) from lands belonging to the Crown (not the Monarch personally) in return for an annual allowance. From this allowance, the Queen and Prince Charles employ thousands of people and support dozens of charitable foundations. I won’t even start with the huge benefits they bring in trade, business, tourism… By the way, I’m a Yank. Just one who happens to know at least SOME of the facts.

    They did this interview with Harry in Afghanistan, and halfway through he threw the mike and ran to his chopper because a mission had come up. I like my royals with a bit of vinegar…

    Of course, but Oliphant is Australian as well as American and we in the common-wealth normally use nappy. It’s faux outrage, relax.

    On the other hand, “diaper duty” benefits by being alliterative.


    The speaker is a penguin, of course. Which term do penguins normally use?

    Also, I think “those in the know” would quibble more over the term “personal butler.” A butler runs a household; a personal manservant (a “gentleman’s gentleman”) is a valet. Mr. Bates, not Mr. Carson…

    Curiously all the folderall comes from the USA to the UK but not any of the other countries with royalty like Japan, Spain, Monaco, Norway, Sweden and Nederlands. (I’m sure there are more.)
