There are so many this or that's titled. I am beginning to understand why the social class clash was an issue years ago in England. How does anyone truly keep up with all of this? My question is this, why? Here it's republican, democrat or libertarian. So do all these people have pull with party politics? As the list goes on, I can't help but wonder. When money is good it's good and votes count, so if this is part of the impact on American politics, I can't see a legitimate problem with it, either.

Royals don't have any political power in any European country except Liechenstein.

Biri does a fantastic job in both Royal and Noble announcements and letting us know.

Perhaps she prefers older men. I certainly did. For sure they aren't marrying each other for the money since both families have loaded pockets.

I keep meaning to thank Biri for doing such a good job keeping us up on who is marrying whom. It's fun. Thanks
