    This will be the first American in the royal family since King Ralph passed away.

    She does a good job in Suits and seems like a good person. I say well done Prince Harry.

    Couldn't give a shit about the British royal family but it's nice to see him being allowed break the mould I suppose. Of course he'll never inherit so I guess his choice of wife isn't of such concern to them

    I am hopefull she has a cousin Eddie type person in her family that shows up unannounced during the holidays.

    I think just being American means there’s a 100% probability that there is someone less than refined in the family.

    OK, enough joking around here, let's get down to the important stuff.  Shoes.  What will they be wearing?

    It is interesting to think we are all related if we just go far far back.

    I think they call that "6 degrees of separation".  Or is it 7?

  • I think Harry is hot and probably a lot of fun. Other than that I haven't given it much thought. I do remember watching the Charles/Diana wedding with my grandma back in the day. I can only imagine what that would have been like if social media had been around.
    I'm through with screaming
  • He certainly is fun. He is mischievous and probably the most popular royal

    Welcome to the family
    :lol:

    This all somehow reminds me of a cartoon I saw when I was a kid that was an old,OLD, early cartoon, like maybe from he 1930's.  In one scene this family--  I can't remember if the people were just weird looking or if they were like cat people or something-   are all scurrying around this house where everything is moving strangely-  almost hallucinatory in effect-  and they're all singing this song that sort of goes like:

    We are a happy fam-ily
    We laugh and sing and dance all day.

    I would love to find that on YouTube some day.  I've looked many a time.  No luck.

    The Royal family is nothing more than leeches on society anymore ... how pathetic these people are ...
    This is how much the British monarchy costs the 4 biggest commonwealth countries (source is from 2016):

    Canada

    The grand total that we estimate (excluding the cost of hosting), is $50.5 million per year. That works out to $1.44 Canadian per capita. That could be down from the $1.85 the Monarchist League of Canada estimated in 2012, but we're assuming they added all of the one offs we get per year -- like the $7.5 million we pitched in for the Queen's Birthday Jubilee. Yeah, $7.5 million -- and you probably thought that free coffee Starbucks gives you is lavish.

    New Zealand

    In New Zealand, the monarchy estimates it costs NZ$4.3 million, or around a dollar a person in 2010. Our look at the same year turned up NZ$18.6 million, or NZ$3.32/person.

    United Kingdom

    The UK gets the pleasure of entertaining the Monarchy year round, so it's no surprise they pay a (metric?) buttload. There's this year's £150 million pound renovation for Buckingham Palace, the official residence. But that's owned by the people, so apparently we shouldn't factor that in. Outside of that, there's another £42.8 million budgeted in the latest accounts. This works out to roughly £0.80 per capita.

    Australia

    Australia seems to be under the impression that they don't pay anything -- outside of the cost of visits. Don't worry, Australia, we'll do the math for you! The Governor General's office ran up a tab of $17,669,000.

    In addition to that, there's also the costs outlined in their 2013 financial report. There was a bill of $12,767,924 dollars in this report, but they paid for it with "revenue." Notes detail that revenue "is generated from the sale of replacement medals to recipients who earlier received awards under the Australian Honors and Awards system." I'm not fluent in Australian, but it sounds like they're billing the country for it.

    We'll exclude the latter and say it costs A$0.79 per capita. However, if you're Australian and reading this, it's probably much higher. (US$0.76)

    2016-09-23-1474648782-3104631-CostofMaintainingAMonarchyPerCapitapng

    The costs per capita contributed from every person in Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and Australia. We used US dollars as the currency because we needed a neutral currency to compare.

    I'm not sure what your point is?  Are you defending these leeches because its nominal when broken down per capita.  And why is Canada contributing any money to these leeches?  As far as I'm concern we should have cut ties with everything and anything UK along time ago...
