Wait. I thought Kate was supposed to be just a regular girl from a working family. They're farking millionaires too?!?!

Being a commoner doesn't necessarily mean poor. Bill Gates is a commoner. Anyway, she's still not from a rich family. $7m for a house puts you in the middle lower upper working class bracket. We're all super rich.

British class systems are weird. You can be penniless and be an aristocrat and you can be a billionaire and be a commoner.

Apparently they are not hiring a nanny....yet. Having a royal nanny has been traditions for generations.

I think the girl has a good head on her shoulders. She may have been born in an upper class family but her family made sure she had a real paying job at one point in college. I think she was a bartender on a yacht but I cant remember where I read that. So dont quote me.

Ive known rich kids who ditched the elitism thing when they actually had to work to make a living rather than living off of the parents dime.

They were middle class when Kate was born. Then they started a mail-order party supply business. Then the Internet happened and they got online early.

Still, they are only millionaires. For the royal wedding, they paid for Kate's dress and the Windsors covered everything else.

StRalphTheLiar: I've seen many a $7 mansion in Juarez.


I've seen them, too.  They're composed of cardboard boxes, salvaged lumber, and tin sheets, and are built into the sides of hills on the outskirts of the city, practically on the Rio Grande and only a hop, skip, an a jump from El Paso. No plumbing and no electricity (unless it's stolen, then it's carried to the shack via a spliced extension cord).  Maybe 150 sq ft.

Next thing you know they'll stop shopping at Fortnum and Mason and go to Selfridges instead. How gauche!

Oh fark off on that. Obama gets a salary from the taxpayers too, but who farking cares what they use THEIR money on. No one screams about how employees spend the customers' money, so SFTU you disingenuous blowhard.

Yet another thread on a septic website about the 'royal baby'........yet you yanks love to tell us limeys how much you don't care. Oh, and don't let us all forget, again, how ya'll fought two wars not to hear or care about this shiat! And the two world wars you saved us from, but still keep hearing about this shiat.

Maybe you crave attention by telling the rest of the world, repeatedly & loudly, how little attention you need.

The royal family own properties which generate income, much of which is taken by the gov't and a portion is returned to them to live lavishly on.  Technically, they give money to the taxpayers (though nobility owning property by ancestral title is inherently un-democratic).

I don't know how anyone could be nasty about William and Kate, they seem like perfectly decent young people.  One may not support them becoming hereditary royalty, but it's hard not to wish them a happy life.  Besides, lots of Americans gobble the pageantry up like it was jaffa cakes.  As usual Fark=snark.

/fark you haters that say this isn't a meme.


I have found myself saying "King Sh*t of F*ck Island" to non-farkers a couple times. I use it as a derisive term when talking about someone I don't actually know...like the guy who cuts at the grocery store.

In spite of how much I initially disliked it, it stuck for me. Congratulations. Those Internet dollars should be rolling in any minute now.
