You say that but, they can block any law they want and use that to manipulate whatever they want.
Im not sure they have done anything which has been an affront as much as laws passed by elected politicians. The really last bad king was probably George IV

Do you know the protocol for those soldiers been chosen?

I'm assuming it's similar to the guards who stood watch over the coffin but not exactly the same. Those guards had to have done 22 years of service and reach warrant officer rank.
Is it the same the same protocol that exempts the palace from race and discrimination laws?

Not gonna lie, the idea that 4 billion people watched today has cracked me up. I think I’d struggle to believe a billion watched but 4 billion is outrageous 😂
I think that what has happened here is that 3.5 billion of those people turned the telly on and immediately turned it off and then turned
it back on an hour later and saw that it was still on only to turn it off again....... ad infinitum. ;)
That would make more sense :D

I've not read the thread. I've been respectful and left well alone the last 11 days
But just to get it off my chest, I'm not a fan of the royal family and have found the whole national grief thing embarrassing. With the state of this country at the moment, millions spent on some historic pageantry seems ridiculous to me.
But kind of says it all about this country, its people and is why we have someone like Liz Truss in charge now. Someone that will royally fk this country up, in the couple of years she has in charge. Mini Maggie hasn't a compassionate bone in her body. A career politician with horrible right-wing ideals (these days!), she will spoil for war, work tirelessly to make the richer, richer and has zero compassion for the majority. But hey she's not a Leftie!

If only the majority of this country had a brain...

I think this would also explain the viewing figures for Mrs Browns Boys

The women died in a horrific accident, and the public expected comment....the queen went and hid in Scotland to avoid saying anything. Blair chased her down and had to pressure her into saying something.
so you agree that she said nothing.

The Queen had a simple philosophy, Never Complain, Never Explain. She stuck to that and concentrated on her Grandchildren, until she was ready to say something.

maybe you want to try using a different word as 'Vilify" is clearly not correct
