It seems the Royal succession question may become much more relevant soon. Does Canada stick with the Bill C-53? Formally ammend the constitution to allow gender-blind succession? Keep male-preferred succession and have its own monarch within the House of Windsor?

Be cool for one of the Royal kids to say, "YEAH? Well I got Canada!" :wink:

It could get really interesting if William and Catherine don't have a son and Prince Henry is the next male heir. Aside from the Nazi thing, Henry VIII reigned before Canada existed, so Canada never had a King Henry VIII. Would King Henry of Canada and Nowhere Else be Henry I or Henry IX?

EDIT: It's Prince HARRY, not HENRY. I really got to look over that list of Grandchildren of Figureheads again.

EDIT EDIT: Turns out his name actually IS Henry. That list is handier than I thought.

They don't always keep their 'name' when they assume the throne. Edward the VIII was known as David to friends and family and his brother Albert became George VI. I thought it was common knowledge that Harry is a derivative of Henry like Hank is or Jack for John..etc

Pop culture monarchy... See little difference from Kate Middleton and Brittney Spears... Or Prince William and Justin Timberleg (sp?)

This news story is painfully mindless...

Possibly. They also work a lot harder than your average Occupy protester...and they likely smell better.

As irrelevant as the monarchy is, they nevertheless have several orders of magnitude more class than the last two you mentioned.

Well paid, I imagine and busy as hell as they follow them around as they do all of the work that they do.

Exhilarating. For all their hard work shopping while surrounded by cameras and preparing to "take on the burden" of the British Empire, I'd still be more excited for the cashier at the store down the street to hear if it were her 5 months pregnant than this.

Never mind the completely mindless tabloid obsessions here.

How they manage to use over 500 words to repeat the same dribble paparazzi madness over and over again is beyond me.. Fantastic journalism right here.

Like I said. Paris Hilton... with a better hat. Charlie Sheen... with a better hat.

Sorry... Sometimes I just.. I just forget that this is all anyone cares about now.

Pity you focus on what the paparazzi does as opposed what the Monarchy does. And comparing Prince Andrew to say, Charlie Sheen suggests that you need to stop hanging around the SUB.

That and maybe people have the ability and right to care about something you don't lest we all agree on dress in grey coveralls.

What Gunnair said. Ignore the bleating of the tabloids. Think about all the charity work Princess Diana did. Remember that all of the royals have served in the military at some point.

Surely people have the right to care about the stories that drip out of the flimsy paper coloured fairy tales sold on the rack at convenience stores... I didn't question their "right"...

Just their taste.

I care about the monarchy about as much as I care about our parliament. Extremely little. I understand they'll make decisions that may or may not affect me in the future, and I have no appeal to make to their well-dressed "finely groomed" actions. No, I refuse to respect my master. Long Live the Queen.

There are no wrong answers in ballet. :D

I agree, the obsession with the "Royals" gets way overdone.

It's not their fault though. It's the media feeding the public's appetite. People seem to love every niggling detail.
