Prince Philip was involved with 780 organizations! I don't think that it's reasonable to expect William, Harry, and Kate to take on over 250 organizations each--if the organizations continue to want...

I think that Beatrice and Eugenie could be needed occasionally until Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and any future children of William and/or Harry finish their educations. I don't see them...

As far as I know, this is not known for sure. It really isn't Charles' decision at this point.

Right. Plus, even with the best medical care and no accidents/assassinations, not everyone lives past their 60s.

I don't think that this was ever decreed. The general discussion about this is that the Prince of Wales wants a slim-downed monarchy in the future and doesn't like the idea of his siblings and their...

Honestly, if she stood at the entrance of a store with a Salvation Army kettle, she'd probably take in a lot of donations. I think that word would get around and people would drop money in the...

Still, it's not a nice thing to say about one's nieces. The princesses get enough knocking in the media without it coming from inside the family as well.:ermm:

If the story is true, it puts the Princesses' Uncle Charles in a very bad light.:ermm: Really, from the comments they've said on camera, they really don't seem like twits at all.

To me, the fact that Beatrice got a good degree while coping with dyslexia shows that she's a hard-working and determined young lady.

There seems to be an assumption that because Beatrice isn't...

After Catherine became engaged and wound down her involvement with her parents' company, they advertised for a director of marketing. Presumably then, that's what she was doing.

There will be fewer senior members of the BRF, though. The Princess Royal will be 81 in 20 years, and Prince Charles and The Duchess of Cornwall will be 83 (Camilla's a bit older, I think). The...
