The Queen is awesome!

:Lol:

 

So folks,

 

What you doing over the Jubilee weekend?  Have you got any street parties planned or throwing a house party of your own or perhaps even coming to see the London celebrations?

 

Alternatively you could be doing nothing, but I like to think that we are all doing something.

Like Diana would have done if there was a TV camera pointing at her, and she would have ensured that there was. 
I totally disagree and think that is absolute rubbish!

I'm an animal lover & I remember my mother telling me how she'd never forget or forgive the queen for smiling would you believe when a baby elephant was running around looking for it's mother that had just been murdered by somebody on one of those damn hunts they like to go on. 

 

I've often wondered if Lady Diana would still be with us if that piece of work hadn't taken her HRH away!

 

I also remember how she responded when a very ill child with a ventilation tube up her nose gave her a bouquet of flowers on her last jubilee. Instead of kneeling down & properly communicating with the child like Diana would have done or any normal mother come to that, she took the bouquet from this child who can't have been more than about six years old as if the child had leprosy or something!

 

She had to be almost dragged kicking & screaming back to London to do the right thing by her subjects - us gullible sods!

 

She's power hungry & nearly lost it, if it hadn't have been for Tony Blair.

 

Some of us don't forget or forgive!


 

I take it Logic you like to read the Daily Express then. :xRolleyes:

 

That incident that you mentioned regarding the child and the Queen (truthful or not), may I just remind you that Diana (who you feel should be regarded as a Saint) does have her own bad examples too.  Such as when visiting a hospital in South Africa, she arrived late, and the press that had gathered wasn't big enough for her, which she was was quite unhappy about. Then she turned at the gathered children and asked if there were sicker children available for her to have her photo taken with.  :Shame:

 

Not to mention how she treated Buckingham Palace staff (even getting some fired), made prank calls to the Queen's mum, accused family friends of affairs, apologising sarcastically about a supposed miscarriage during a well attended royal function and even went after celebrities like Jill Dando and Catherine Zeta Jones.

 

It's a shame that despite doing some amazing wonderful things, she is capable of doing malevalent and vengful acts too.

 

It will certainly be interesting to see what history makes of her but let's not put the rose tinted glasses on quite yet. :Thumbs:

 

Anywho back on topic (as in the Jubilee celebrations and the Royal family).  I've never heard that if Charles dies before the Queen it goes to Prince Andrew.  Is that really true? I don't mind Andrew but to be honest I do prefer it goes to William as opposed to Andrew's daughters.

Seeing as it was Lara's who wrote it I'm gonna be taking it with a pinch of salt for now.

If he's he's right then I apologise in advance.

Bladder infection?

More like too much partying over the weekend and took an overdose. Bit like when the pop stars people say they collapsed due to exhaustion.

Take it easy Phil, you're not 52 anymore!

It was probably as a result of him laughing too much at finding out what Grace Jones would be doing at the concert. Must have caught her rehearsal or something. Got off lightly I think.

Everyone knows that the crown can't skip a generation as it must be passed down to the Queen's heirs.

and Since it's always the males first in line, if Charles dies before the Queen, then it'll make Prince Andrew king. But that law would change in the third (Prince William & Harry) generation  of the Royal Family allowing first born females to inherit the throne.

 

There's no where online that explains this stuff in easy simple terms and they also tend to waffle on a bit.

It wouldn't. Prince William is next in line to the throne, and Charles dying would just trigger that succession.

 

Prince Andrew is extremely unlikely to ever succeed to the throne.

Well I've just looked into it and it would seem that Lara's Royally messed up again.

Interesting how everyone knows if Charles dies before the Queen then Andrew will be King.....

It's the simplist one I could find, The other websites require you to be a royal history geek, which I'm not before you start thinking. :smileyvery-happy: Well the source would suit me fine in this debate. I just hope Prince Andrew doesn't get any ideas from this thread as I would hate to think we were responsible for Andrew's mass murder rampage.

So where exactly does that say Andrew would succeed to the throne if Charles was to die?

 

The views expressed within this post features my own perspective opinion and If you want to raise concerns about it, message me and I'll do my best to rectify my mistakes.

 

It would appear not.

You have to squint real hard to read between the lines Pat, or maybe take off them shades.

That could be where I'm going wrong, cluttering up my thinking with facts instead of allowing my imagination to take over.

As poor a source as wikipedia may be, I consider it better than one that uses comic sans.
I thought everyone knew it was Charles then William, what was all the discussion about people wanting it to skip a generation and go straight to William? Does that mean everyone is wrong?

Having re-read that page, it doesn't even support your point.

You can probably get it on the corner outside Boots though, once it gets dark.

 

Although when King Andrew is in charge he may well crack down on that sort of thing.
