I, too, never gave race a thought. It seems, though, that Meghan is ultra sensitive about the race part of her relationship. She would, of course, be more than aware of certain elements of our press. The rest of us just discount it as the bid to swell the distribution numbers among the media. Most ordinary citizens, in my opinion, do not give her race a second thought. Is she being too sensitive? I read reports that she keeps Archie out of the limelight because certain elements of the press will see features that emanate from his ethnic origins. Well let them! It will come out one day and better that it is while he is unaware than when he is older and, perhaps, more sensitive. He could be a game changer if he grows up into a decent young man and proves all the racists wrong.

She's just on the wrong side of the fence. In time she'll be like the English people of Asian descent who happily voted to keep foreigners out.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

No doubt taxpayers will be picking up the bill for close protection. Why didnt they come out with this decision before millions spent on their official residence.

I am anti rotyal but if we have to have them the taxpayer should only be funding the siting monarch not all the hangers on

I agree 100%. I don't actively dislike them but I can't warm to them or see what right they have to "rule over us". Maybe they're so powerful and wealthy that they could enforce their position? No?

If they want the titles let them keep them because they merit them. How long would that last I wonder?



Brexit has been a remarkable example of the effectiveness of propaganda, but the royals have been using propaganda since long before brexit was thought of.

Take a bow Sheeple. The Daily Mail and Co. will tell you who to hate next while you ensure that freeloading, dysfunctional arses continue to live off you and tell you what you think. Gord Bless the Queen.

Again I say that I have nothing against her, but she has enough money and property to keep herself and her family without levying us to keep her in her position.

THEY should be able to do what they want to do BUT without my tax paying for it.

I can definitely see who wears the trousers in this marriage.

I'm not a Royalist by any stretch of the imagination and actually got into trouble at secondary school for repeating what my aunt was saying when the Queen visited Durham in 1964 (approx).

HOWEVER the Americans have Heads of State who only "rule" for 8y at the most BUT then have to be protected for the rest of their lives, as do their close families.

So I'm a bit ambivalent about the whole set up.

My oldest two children were both able to spend time at school in Netherlands, where the Crown Prince attended as an "ordinary" pupil. I think that their system and the normality of their Royal Family would be a lot more favourable but I do not think that it is going to materialise, neither suddenly nor slowly.

I am pretty sure that they are self funding of their lifestyle. The taxpayer has to cough up for all the state duties that they perform. This, we are told, brings in more money in the way of trade and tourism than it costs. I haven't seen the figures but I am sure one of the rags would have exposed it if not true. I think that, generally, they do more good than harm.
I have visited Sandringham and seen rooms where the Queen lives when she is in residence. One is heated by a small electric fire! It is, apparently, the most cost effective way of heating that space rather than the whole house.

Brexit is madness orchestrated by the insane.
