[our royal family] this sceptered isle

Discovered this fabulous site on our Royal Family.

Now I know it's the fashion in certain sections of society to belittle our Royals but in the U.S., as you can see from the photo below right, they are welcomed as Royalty, as was Lady Thatcher. Here are some of the gems from this site:

The Love Triangle

Add your own caption.

Their lives and names are forever entwined. Now, Madame Tussauds has given snappers the kind of photo opportunity which is enough to see the residents of Clarence House crying into their glasses of Prince of Wales whisky.

Unveiling the new waxwork model of Camilla, onlookers may have been surprised to see that the Prince of Wales' second wife has been positioned (for today at least) looking almost directly at her her nemesis: Charles's first wife, Diana, Princess of Wales.

Beatrice does Victoria

This photo was shamelessly nicked from - who said royalty cannot be voluptuous?

She made her debut with a beaming smile on her face. But as Princess Beatrice left Lincoln Cathedral following a day of filming for The Young Victoria, it would appear the showbiz gloss may have worn off as, wrapped in a blanket, the Queen's granddaughter appeared to have discovered the reality of life as a lady-in-waiting ... and waiting ... and waiting ...

If you miss this opportunity to view the rich tapestry which is Royalty in 2007, you'll never be forgiven by your grandchildren, should you have any and if we still have an earth. Visit soon and visit often.

I find the juxtaposition of crass commercials and the Royal Family very jarring.

My view is that they should be not seen and not heard.

Thank you and Good Night Your Majesty.

The Royal Family I can understand, Colin. But which crass commercials?

Rich tapestry?

Zara Philips?

They are a tourist attraction at best, a maintenance of feudal values at worst.

Do you know, it is statistically inevitable that every British citizen carries the blood of Edward the elder in their veins?

Lord Higham- Murray said...

Oh my goodness, Crushed - no!!!

Sorry I am a republican, at least for the former commonwealth countries. The Brits can make up their own minds there.

Lord Higham- Murray said...

Thought you might, JMB.
