I've lost the recommendations for films that Margie and BK gave. I've just looked on Amazon prime , Normal people comes up but it seems it's not a film but a series. Is that right? The other two aren't available unfortunately as Stan was born in Ulveston near where I was born.

I've been out all afternoon so only just read all the stuff about the monarchy.  I quite like the Queen and even the D of E, but not particularly keen on Charles, although he does seem to care for he environment. Camilla will never be a queen in my eyes (although she may well have some good points in her character - I don't know her!)

William is OK and Kate seems a nice lady.  I still like Harry and hope he will continue to find happiness in his new life.

I do, however, find that the pomp and circumstances in retaining and maintaining this group of

theatrically attired individuals have no further place to indulge themselves with unlimited rights and privileges in our society.

 

I would suggest that the paragraph I quote indicates quite a large degree of resentment and making scurrilous innuendos about Harry is unfair and borderline libel unless you can prove what you're alluding to.

 

As for unlimited rights I suspect that though very comfortable they have less freedom than you or I. Their days are carefully planned, often down to the minute, for years in advance and have to play nice with people they've never met and may not even like.

 

I recommend you Google for the Duchy of Cornwell and gather some facts before making unfounded allegations, it covers 21 counties for a start and pays for a large proportion of his official duties, his family plus a good few charities. In essence he costs you next to nowt!

 

One more thought, I wonder how you think your life would improve with Boris as President..

One must agree with ones views Philip. i just wonder how far down the line of succession one is?

My cousin married a Viscount and Baron, her mother was born a Prince. Does that get me in?

Well we have a good friend who’s a Knight of the Realm, achieved through Charity work.

And ..... I met the Queen’s hairdresser, Ian Carmichael, by a pool in Miami Beach a few years ago and then had dinner with him.  He was great company too.

I know what triggered the last  episode. I stood up and moved towards the kitchen at speed, before I'd gone four steps the walls were moving.  I do have a habit of zooming around at home, so I am trying to control my movements a bit. Very difficult when you are a zoomer!

 

Were there large Cream Cakes in there Chris?  :rolleyes:

Seriously, one of the reasons I stopped doing car maintenance was that it was guaranteed to kick off vertigo, just from leaning into the engine compartment, but especially if I was rolling about underneath trying to reach some barely accessible part. Over years, I've learned to avoid sudden movements, including leaping out of bed too quickly.

 

Look after yersen Miduck..

I’m quite close actually BK. My old co-director’s cousin married Lady Di’s cousin. These are the circles I move in! :biggrin:

 

As opposed to the ever decreasing ones I move in... :laugh:

 

I'm fairly neutral about royalty. To me, they are largely an irrelevance. I'm just not interested.

To be fair young Kate is rather lovely, comes across as genuine and seems hard working.

 

I think calling Megan Markle 'The Mekon' carries all sorts of connotations that I find very distasteful.  She's not from Britain, and she's black.  So what? The same applies to my future son in law.  He's served this country in Afghanistan and is now serving us again as a key worker. What have those hurling the insults actually done? 

 

As to the cost of the Royals.  It is a real cost and as such people are entitled to query it but... I'd put it at the back of a very long queue, behind the millions Jenrick cost Tower Hamlets Council by his illegal approval of Desmond's planning application... or the millions NOT being paid out by companies who sold, fitted and approved substandard cladding on thousands of dwellings, and let's not even mention the millions thrown away on 'mates' contracts during the current Covid Crisis.

Hi Nonna,

 

Normal People is a TV Series based on a best selling book by Sally Rooney.  The Series was broadcast by BBC3 and is available for 'catch up' viewing on the BBC 'iPlayer'. I don't know what the arrangements are for viewing BBC in Italy.  It is also available on Amazon as, I think, both a download, (via Prime?) and a DVD.  Also the original book can be bought as a physical book on Amazon, or as an 'Audiobook'.  I've listened to the Audiobook and it makes certain issues much clearer.

I would say that you had a fair chance of joining the firm Dave. My wife is a King, (well she is now).

I don't see a problem with that, many occupations have a traditional uniform. Chefs toques for instance are from the 18th century.
