  1. Lowell Blackman says:

    These people are not “true” royals in the European sense unless we consider them inheritors of desert sand, placed on the throne by imperialist diplomats for self-serving national interests – and OIL.

    How can we actually even think of comparing them to the likes of distinguished, historical, and long-reigning families such as those of Sweden, Britain, and Denmark?

    It’s just plain silly.

  2. I often wondered if Kate Middleton is barren. All those who wed before her and Prince William, except Princess Charlene of Monaco, are already pregnant. Praying Prince Harry would marry an aristocrat, and may I used the line uttered by King George V during the time he fretted Prince David’s (who would become King Edward VIII for 11 months) fascination towards a commoner woman, “I pray that David would never have a child so that nothing could come between Bertie, Lilibet and the throne”
