The Queen recently circulated around the royal household an updated copy of the Order of Precedence, which is an official paper listing, in descending order, the rankings of the different members in the Royal family.

we should have our own 'Order of Precedence' for various farkers.

FTA: As a former commoner, she must show reverence by curtseying to royal-borns in public and private when her husband, Prince William, is not present.

What exactly would the consequences be if she just laughed and refused to 'curtsey?' And so if she wasn't a former 'commoner,' would that mean she wouldn't have to curtsey?

Heh, I'd just tell these people to go fark themselves. Moot point I guess, since the chances of me ever hooking with a noble are an absolute zero.

Given the Methuselah-aged current queen, she won't be queen until 2040's. So she has a while to wait for that delicious curtseying revenge.

All these rules are just bureaucratic red tape getting in the way of the monarchy's vital roles as, um, people who open shopping malls and wave a lot.

Such a huge outrage over a harmless tradition that most Brits wouldn't even really think twice about until Rick Romero said something.

Kate knew what she was marrying in to. Apart from married in itself, she wouldn't do anything too stupid.

I can't believe that those blokes over there still tolerate this reminder of their subjugation. Granted the royal family is more of a figure-head than anything these days, but they still get money from the state and they are still influential. Oh well, to each their own.

/watch the royal wedding of William and Kate? Yeah, right, fark you. I got better things to do, like watching my grass grow
 
2012-06-26 11:58:18 AM
At least they send around the rules. Some RPers (LA and virtual) seem to think you'll just "get it" and can't understand why everyone goes off their odd script.

As to why she will comply with the order? Yeah, she signed up for that shiat. Just remember, until she got married she had to curtsy to ALL of them. Now it's just a relatively small list, that will get smaller over time. Off hand, I'd say she's winning the game.

I'm sure this is a huge deal. I mean, who needs hundreds of millions of dollars, all the pomp and privilege of being a member of the royal family and the ability to literally do whateverthefarkshewants for the rest of her life if you have to curtsey to some people.

The horror.

I mean, really? This is all so silly. When she's the queen can she make changes to the dumb rules? And if she doesn't do them correctly now, what can they possibly do to her?
 
2012-06-26 12:07:48 PM
"Royalty" is absolutely ridiculous and should be abolished in an enlightened time. What amazes me is that we here in the USA are just as big on Royalty Worship as they are in England, and we are supposed to be a nation of people who believe that all are equal.

Just the concept of royalty should be insulting to anyone who has any amount of critical thinking and self esteem.

Despite the fact Kate Middleton may one day become queen, she recently learned she must curtsey to "blood princesses" when she's not in Prince William's company.
They have tough lives, the royals do, that's for sure. I'm crying so hard now, feeling their pain, that I can barely type these words.

The monarchy has no true power or authority. I have no qualms with a society who maintains these traditions as a link to their history. The American fascination with the Royal family is no different than our penchant for celebrity gossip.

You're right the concept is. The practice however has pretty much had all the bugs ironed out of it, so it's not a problem to keep it around. (Google Magna Carta, English Civil War, Glorious Revolution of 1688.)
