What can you say about the British Monarchy? Do you like the Queen? How about Prince Charles? His sons?

British Monarchy?? I say its awsome... it's very great.. honestly, i'm interested with studying British Monarchy....I love Her Royal Highness Princess Diana , His Royal Highness Prince Charles, His Royal Highness Prince William (my favorite one!!!), His Royal Highness Prince Harry, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, and Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie.. The sad thing is i never had visited United Kingdom ever in my life.. and the one sad thing also is Royalty of United Kingdom never visited my country (Philippines)...

So many people think so much of the Royal family. However, while they actually live in the lap of luxury, they do not really appreciate what it could be like to have to work for a living. I would like to see how long Prince Charles could survive in Manila with no help & no job therefore no food. I only admire people that have actually achieved something in life through their own efforts. Certainly not the Royal family who were born rich.

Well i agree with you.. Prince Charles depends with his luxury to live.. In Manila he can't live here with his popularity... maybe he is popular in other country but not here in the Philippines...... but do some prince or princess work for their very own life???? by the way thanks for replying in my post...... so how do you know something about philippines? you are a foreign people and you just get interest with my country (that is very very poor)

Well, I know about the Philippines because I have been there 7 times, in fact I was there only 10 days ago. While there I don't live in Luxury, but travel on trycycles and Jeepnees like you probably do. I really admire the way that people there work so hard just to try and survive. Bye the way, if you were interested in getting very cheap text messages, or even running a free agency to help your friends save money on their cell phones, just email me, I can give you a contact there that will help you.

The greatest living legendry in the present day world is gracious Queen Elizabeth. I know the sentimental attachment britishers have for Royal Family. She visited in Bangalore (we were kids then) and planted a tree in Lal Bagh Garden. Prince Charles has thousands of fans in India and he too visited India several times. Not much known about his children.

I am not a great fan of the Royal Family. Although it brings in a lot of tourists, I think everyone born on this earth is entitled to a decent life, with enough food to eat & a decent place to live. Just compare the Royal family with thousands of people in India, who can't afford to eat even one meal a day. Whereas the Royal Family live in absolute luxury, pay their staff the absolute minumum wages, & pay their accountants to avoid paying as much Tax as they can get away with. I have more respect for the poor farmer in India or other "poor" countries that works 14 hours a day to try & provide enough food for his family.

You forgot to mentions Diana. I like Diana. She's a part of the Monarchy, isn't it? Its a pity though that she passed away so soon. She was really very beatiful, really like a princess in a fairy tale story.

Just part of a dream, everyone looked on her as a Princess, because she spent a fortune of other peoples money buying the latest fashions (different outfit every day.) She also manipulated the press to make them believe what she wanted them to belive. Anyone could look like a princess when they have no work to do, and unlimited funds to indulge.

I love the Royal Family, I think countries need a higher group to look up to that are not the ones running the country...maybe you could say a watch dog.
