Depends on if they keep the money, you can afford a lot of sanity w/ a royal bank account.

Thanksgiving is going to be a little awkward this year. Maybe they should have dinner at Cracker Barrel instead of grandma's palace this year.

They'll be fine. They still get a discount on those tins of butter cookies.

"The queen's decision is in line with similar changes that other royal houses have carried out in recent years in different ways," the statement added.

OT, but the older he gets, the more Charles looks like a sixteenth century oil portrait.

So Prince Joachim's first wife claims this was done with no warning so her sons and their siblings were blindsided. But it's been reported elsewhere that the Queen had previously discussed this with her son. So maybe PJ didn't bother telling his ex?

They can hop onto a boat and carve new kingdoms for themselves. Britain has new king with realm in disarray and Russia will soon be in internal chaos.

It'll be just like old times.

This one he got a princely racket
That's what I said now
Got some big seal upon his jacket
Ain't in his head now
You marry him, your father will condone you
How 'bout that now
You marry me, your father will disown you
He'll eat his hat, now
Marry him, marry me
I'm the one that loved you baby can't you see?
Ain't got no future or family tree
But I know what a prince and lover ought to be
I know what a prince and lover ought be

And you're not going to share the definition with the class?

I came here specifically hoping someone would comment on it because I was too lazy to look it up myself.

\apparently it's an allowance for royals

Also, she's only saving the sanity of four of her grandchildren. The other four keep their titles, because fark them, right?

The kids of the next in line kept their titles, is how I interpreted it.

Make them fight.  Monarchy is based on blood.  And that blood should bathe the land it claims.

Blood itself is the one true power.  It has power within you.  And the only way to get more power is to get the blood from the inside of others to the outside of others.

"With her decision, Her Majesty the Queen wants to create a framework for the four grandchildren, to a much greater degree, to be able to shape their own existence..."

The queen herself, however, is just fine with the shape of her existence as a wealthy royal, so she won't be making any changes to that.

Mr. Shabooboo: Her husbands Royal Appendage is kept in a pretty Delft Glazed Jar under the sink...


She has multiple husbands who share the royal appendage?

Also, while she might keep the aforementioned appendage in a glazed Delft jar but you might be confusing Denmark with the Netherlands. Granted, they're not far apart on the map but the Netherlands is the place where they don't hate the Dutch.

Mmmhmm.  Plus primogeniture is required in order to avoid diluting the wealth and power of the ruling house.

By effectively disinheriting the branches of later offspring she ensures that the main-line remains wealthy and powerful.
