docere autem mulieri non permitto neque dominari in virum sed esse in silentio
Meh, they're usurpers anyhow.
Heh. Trandem.I laff.
Has Dale gotten you to read that S.M. Stirling series set after the end of the world yet?You'd like his version of William a lot better.
Well it's not the first time a prince has married his woman. What about Mrs. Fitzherbert or Elizabeth Woodville or the woman John of Guant married?
The monarchy survived George IV and his hormones, and it will survive Chuck 'n' Cammy. William's refusal to settle down seems to be smaller potatoes than certain of his predecessors.
What's the matter Hilary? You sound jealous fan
Well, at least he's making an honest woman of her now.She's a bit of a popsie, it has to be said....
Two words. Nell. Gwyn. The monarchy is not over, you might just as well say that it is simply honoring its well-established traditions.
Greg, I may not have read the chronicles arightly, but am I mistaken in thinking that the King never proposed to make the orange seller the Queen of England?
Of course not, he already had a queen, Catherine of Braganza. Since she was unable to bear a child to term, Charles just kept lots of mistresses about the palace, without going to any trouble at all to hide the fact. Whatever William and Kate's problems may have been or continue to be, a monarchy that can survive the likes of Charles II and George IV is not going to be finished by anyone called "Kate Middleton".
