The duke retires at 95

SHARE
The Duke of Edinburgh, who is 95, will no longer carry out public engagements from the autumn of this year. 

I can't imagine why the Queen or the Duke still carry out engagements. How middle class the Hanoverians are.

    Too much Farmer George still? You can take the kraut out of the country but not the country out of the kraut, is it?

    You limeys are confused. It's either not enough democracy and too much republicanism or something.

      Too much parliamentarianism. We haven't had a real king since James II.

      I say "we" even though I'm Australian since we have the same sad useless monarch. We need a real king, Bring back the Stuarts!

    2. Chuck Sobieski incited the highlanders to all get killed at Drumossie Muir. He then ran off dressed as a woman and abandoned them all.

    If Brexit really goes ahead will you be sending them back to Germany as undesirable aliens?

    I'm a die-hard monarchist but the present royal family is contemptible.
