Well, the British monarchy shouldn't exist anymore, period, so I have no problem with not using titles.

I don't wish ill on any of the royals in the succession, but in the unlikely event that Harry took the throne, it would be a sublime and singular pleasure to watch the British press collectively freak the fark out about having an American queen, and queen of color, sit the consort's throne.

I guess they feel Meghan and Harry have been a little sus about titles.

It's time for "Robo-Royals".
Animatronic technology has advanced by leaps & bounds. Robots can be programmed to perform royal duties like cutting ribbons, inspecting military troops or waving from a balcony.

His Majesty T3000 TM looks scary AF right now but a layer of latex skin (complete with warts) will "humanize" it.

No monarchy should exist any more.  The entire notion of nobility and royalty is absurd on it's face.    If someone came up and told you God personally chose them to be in charge, you'd lock them up for their own safety.

The Irish and French managed to figure it out.   I sort of prefer the French solution, myself.

I know if I went 'round claiming I was an emperor, just because some moistened bint lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away.

Appoint an emperor and plunging a whole continent into a quarter century of bloody warfare?

No monarchy ever went without bloodshed in the entire recorded history of mankind.   The quarter century of bloody warfare was merely the end of damn near a thousand years of bloody warfare that predated Charlemagne.

The problem with abolishing the British Monarchy is that there's a whole massive complicated legal arrangement whereby the royal family allowed the use of their Crown properties by Parliament, a deal that's been modified more than a few times over the decades, but the family still technically owns them, along with things like the Crown Jewels.

So if you're okay with the now non-royal Windsors walking away with tens of billions of dollars of property from which they'll live even richer lives than they have been, and the British government suddenly has to deal with significant shortfalls from loss of those incomes, sure, abolish away.

I'll also note that it opens up the Windsors (particularly William) to meddle in politics a hell of a lot more directly, if they choose to.  Part of the current arrangement was intended to keep the royal family out of politics; if you abolish the monarchy, you might end up with Prime Minister William Windsor (or whatever last name he'd have.)

I'm fine with the idea of abolishing it, but the reality of abolishing it is a bit of a legal nightmare and it really isn't going to benefit the British people at all.

They can always apply for Irish Citizenship, the Irish would be more than happy to have them. If Harry doesn't like that then that means he doesn't want to stop being a Royal and all that allows him to do. If he does take Irish Citizenship he can take a special place as a potential reunifier by denying old grandma since she doesn't like the less than "tudor" nature of Meghan and her children. Old biddy is more farked than Paula Deen was when she got caught and all her kids know it.

It'll never happen.  See, Harry hasn't got a drop of the royal bloodline in him; his mom was a whore who got knocked up by a red haired RAF fighter pilot.

Nonetheless, London should be nuked.
