This is hilarious. The line at the end, "Well, it wasn't as tacky as my first wedding," hehe.

That cartoon rocks. I love the slippers on Camilla's feet.
As for BeatrixFan's Queen Wallis bit, all I can say is, BF, you rock!
I hope you will write more, or better still, do it professionally, because you are too good at this to let this talent be wasted.

A dutch cartoon from 1902, no copyrights:



King Edward's royal speech in which he tells how civilized and noble the English soldiers behaved themselves in the (Boer) war. But while reading he gets haunted by killed Boers. The continental and especially the Dutch public opinion was very anti-english. Edward was even boo-ed at Flushing/Vlissingen when he was still Prince of Wales.

From the same cartoonist:



England and the war.
King Edward VII (to the angel of peace): Pleace, will you polish my crown?
Angel to king : First you have to wipe off all that blood . . .

Yeah, I noticed that too, milla. But I only recognize the "Charles" and "Camilla" masks. Who is depicted in the mask on the left? It must be a bad depiction.... I can't recognize it....

I have enjoyed reading, and appreciate, everyone's response on this topic.

I must say that researching the British RF has been an enjoyable hobby of mine for about 10 years now. I am from the U.S. and don't really recall seeing or retaining any of the press coverage on the RF before Diana's death. On top of that, I was studying the U.S. history, so I just never noticed coverage on them. I obviously knew of the RF, but only by name and status. I remember where I was, as does everyone else, when Diana tragically died. The press coverage on the events thereafter were immense and the death of Diana had a large effect on me which completely changed my outlook on the monarchy. Just to give you a clarification of my knowledge in coverage (specifically tv/news related, not internet) that I viewed about the British RF (and others for that matter) in the 90s, I honestly knew so little about them as individuals that I didn't know very much about anyone besides Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, Princess Diana, Prince William and Prince Harry. Press coverage shifted those royals to the front pages and it dictated how much I really knew about any of the other royal members.

Now, I could have read books about British History, but I was at the age where I was worried more about getting my literary research papers in on time. Upon expanding my horizons, I discovered that I was so intrigued (and I still am) by how the monarchy was established and still carries on traditions, formality and so on. It's a system so different from what I am used to here in the states and my research has proved to be worth every hour spent in libraries, buried in books. I owe so much to the enormous variety and supply of books on foreign affairs and history that my university had and I consider myself very lucky to have come across them. I don't really pay attention to tabloids, as their credibility is so low most of the time, but whatever is on the front page catches your attention and I guess I am guilty from time to time of only picking up on the headlines instead of doing my own research. :)

I don't know of any significant changes in the way the RF has handled the press, but I must say that I agree with some of the previous posts that have mentioned the way that reality shows affect the way we look into the privacy of others, especially those that have been made into public celebrities. This effect tends to single out and magnify the negative aspects of their actions, and as a result we are momentarily focused on that aspect instead of recognizing what they have accomplished 'under the radar', so to speak. An example comes to mind of The Princess Royal--I believe it was 2002 or so when the media was suspecting trouble in her and Tim's marriage. It was pure speculation and it seems that coverage on The PR and other members of the RF are few and far between, but their accomplishments for charities and public relations are rarely the main focus (which is a majority of what I commend them for).

I have enjoyed studying and researching the events of the Royal Family, as well as seeing what others think and how they are influenced by them. We are all human, but what we make of life sets us apart from others.

A couple of articles about the BRF and the paparazzi.

----------------------------------------------
AS the royal family look forward to their Christmas break at Sandringham in Norfolk the Queen is leading her family in a stand against what they consider to be the increasingly intrusive behaviour of paparazzi photographers.
The palace has let it be known that the royals will no longer tolerate long-lens prying by paparazzi even if the photographers stick to precedent by not trespassing and remaining on public roads. Members of the family are content to be photographed attending church on Christmas morning but will not stand for what they consider to be harassment.

Queen cracks down on paparazzi - Times Online


The Queen and Prince Charles have instructed Gerrard Tyrrell, a senior lawyer specialising in privacy and media law, to mastermind the new privacy strategy.


The new get-tough approach has the full support of the Prince of Wales, Prince William, Prince Harry and other senior members of the Royal family, who are now prepared to take legal action against what they see as the "intrusive and unacceptable behaviour" of photographers.

Anyone watch the Today show where they dressed as the royal family? Is it me or does anyone else think it was rude. Im sorry but Halloween is not a time to make fun of the royal wedding and its guests. It was rather tasteless in my opinion. For being newscasters who supposedly have some smarts they showed a major lack of. Anyone have any opinion and sorry if this wasnt the right link.

Though I don't think this belongs in this thread, Beatrice and Eugenie had to know they were setting themselves up for jokes and ridicule when they wore those hideous outfits. If you wear an outfit like that to a well broadcasted event that's your own fault. I don't think it was tasteless and people have been going around dressing as American politicians for years and nobody says anything about them.

I thought it was cute and clever and in no way making fun (at least not critically)

I thought it was cute, too, and all in fun. It seemed harmless and I did get a few chuckles out of it.
