I wonder why the difference between the sites, lets hope William and Harry hurry up, marry and have children. Can you imagine the work for the mods if either girl was made a CoS?:ohmy:

:previous: I don't think we are looking at a King William for at least 40 years, possibly longer, which gives William and Harry plenty of time to marry and have 2-4 children each to take over.

The difference being that, sexist as it may be, they are girls. Bad enough to see William and Harry staggering out of nightclubs but with girls it is so much worse.
