Some people in the Uk do love monarchy, some are indifferent to them and some opposed. I just find some of the news distasteful. For example, in this rotten age of austerity, there are disabled people, people with mental health problems and learning difficulties who are struggling to survive because they've been deemed fit for work by ATOS- they're having to go to food banks and some are living on the streets, and then the news is full of Catherine's baby and how they're having a two million (I think this is the correct sum) revamp of *one of the palaces* to ensure that it's fit for them. So many people are struggling to make ends meet that this just seems way too extravagant.
The monarchy symbolise privilege. No little boy or girl can hope to be a Prince or Princess - except in Disney World. They stand for the worst in life - a few gilded people who have 'achieved' something by being born.
I absolutely and uncategorically loathe the Royal Family and all they stand for - and the rest of the hangers on. We go to war over our fake democracy, dropping bombs on innocent families who happen to be brown, Muslim or just different, and yet we celebrate a family that has not been voted for.
In a small moment of honesty on TV a while back - the Queen was visiting Ireland. They asked a sweet old Irish lady what she thought of the Royal visit. She told them what for. In a clear and brief statement she explained exactly why she had no time for them.
There are people starving on the streets of Britain while the media and politicians pretend that the people are celebrating. Not everyone does.
Well, Charles owns and exploits a large part of Cornwall and is therefore also called duke thereof. Camilla was not given the P-ess.oW title because it was felt by those who worry about such things to be an affront to the sainthood of Charlie's previous wife, who had little brain but immense abilities to flutter eyelashes and manipulate the media.
Actually, Wales is currently not a principality, so the PoW title is incorrect anyway. Some in Wales consider Llywelyn ap Gruffudd, who was slaughtered in 1282 by the English (Saeson) to be the last Prince of Wales. The great hero Owain Glyndwr, who disappeared during the revolt he led against the Saeson in 1412, was also voted into the title by his supporters, so is considered by others to be the last Prince of Wales. Either way, many here in Wales consider Charlie a usurper to this title.
It was a compromise, which both sides felt allowed them to retain the maximum advantage.
As for a hub about the subject, I fear it is not a topic of major interest. In particular, it will not be a topic of interest to the US denizens who work for a pittance at MTurk and decide the fate of all hubs. I am no longer willing to spend hours writing a hub only to have it idled by ignorant people.
