He'll never be King. He'll have a stroke before they lay the crown atop his head.
 
2013-03-03 11:20:14 AM
You forgot about him ordering all the new "CR III" logos to replace the "ER II" logos.

I'd like to see it go to Harry. He'd have some fun with it, Louis XIV style.

So ERII has the shaits.

It's a stomach flu. Nothing to see here. False deathwatch alarm.

First we are without a Pope and now the Queen is ill.
 
2013-03-03 11:22:57 AM
The Queen is a robot.

I thought everyone already knew that.

Oh, she's not going anywhere yet. Which is good as she's a much better monarch than ol' Charles. William has a lot more hair to lose before Elizabeth goes and things move down the line.
 
2013-03-03 11:23:45 AM
I thought Charles was out since he divorced the hottie, Diana, and married a horse?

So who are the radio shows going to impersonate when calling the hospital for an update?
 
2013-03-03 11:26:42 AM
The Queen has diarrhea.

I wonder if they call it the "Cadbury squirts" over there.

She's just got a tummy ache.

(Sadly wasted 'she's got the trots' joke as it wasn't Camilla.

No Pope and the Defender of the Faith has the runs.

Always found it interesting that the British say "in hospital" as a state of being instead of "in the hospital".  Completely off-topic, though.

Queen Elizabeth is sinking.

Man the lifeboats.

Now my wife and I would like to get back to the Monty Python marathon.

Other than Charles himself?  Probably not.

Well, she did go to hospital and it is notoriously easy to pick up some kind of nasty antibiotic resistant bug nowadays from those places.

Does it really matter? Parliament and PM rule the UK, not the monarchy

Just had the gastro myself this week. 4 days of misery with stuff gushing out both ends at the same time. I'm sure she is not amused.
 
2013-03-03 11:34:07 AM
Considering she probably has several doctors on staff the only reason she'd be sent to a hospital is if they thought it could turn bad quickly.
 
2013-03-03 11:34:15 AM
I've found the name choices for the current set of heirs to be interesting.  There hasn't been a Charles or a William in 300 years.

By that logic the papacy also has no influence on the world whatsoever.

She's got another 40 in her. You have no idea how resiliently they designed that model.

There is no way I want Charles to be my King.

I think this is a great opportunity for a pair of Australian DeeJays to pull one of their whacky Zoo Crew antics.

Queen Victoria's uncle would like a word with you.

I'd hate to be the groom of the stool when the queen has the trots.

Hell, even in Canada we see her face on our currency, her representatives are part of our government, and you still pledge allegiance to the queen to become a citizen. If you think that Charles as king would have little to no influence you're simply deluded. Also he's crazy.

bborchar: /Does anyone really want to see Charles as King?


I do. In recent years he's done much to call attention to the problems in the built environment. While I don't always agree with his views on the importance of traditional styles for building facades, he has given visibility to the issue of how we build our cities effects our health and how we end up interacting with each other. Most leaders couldn't care less about these issues except when one of their developer friends need inside access to build something crappy.

Regardless of who gets the throne next, I suspect many of Elizabeth's current realms will become republics within ten years of her death. For much of the world, she is the only commonwealth monarch they've known. The attachment is as much to her and it is to the crown. I don't see Charles or William inspiring that kind of loyalty.

Does the British monarchy even have enough power left for them to be a "good" or "bad" monarch?

So it;'s true. A Royal Flush beats a pair of Douches.

Hugo Chavez is almost 30 years younger than her.

This chick, as the official head-of-state-without-official-power she's basically the WalMart greeter for a whole country, right?

It's probably time for Lizzy to think about letting Charlie have a go at king. He's no spring chicken himself, he's got 10, 15 years tops? Then it'll be time for little Willy to take over and we can all be excited at the coronation.

The longest reign of a British monarch is the 63 years, 216 days or 63 years 7 months and 3 days ofVictoria between 1837 and 1901. The second longest reign is that of the current monarch, Elizabeth II (since February 1952).

Really, Lizzy, you're trying for Vicki's record. Aren't you?

Eh, the heads of state in many countries are largely ceremonial and symbolic. The UK monarchy is more of a cultural embodiment of the culture and history than active government. It's not required, but it's not a bad unifying symbol. Done well, it can enhance that sense of unity.
