    What is with American Media's fascination with Britains Royal Family?
    Are they really anymore than the world's wealthiest welfare receiptients who insist on inbreeding?

    Any of you sucked into this upcoming wedding, etc.?
    I really don't get it.

    All I can say is he was red headed and likely related to his Mother.

    Oh, crap. :(

    I was rather enjoying the fact that this was one place where the unrelenting coverage of the royal wedding had not penetrated.

    Watch it if you want, don't watch it if you want, but seriously who gives a crap who made her dress?

    That's a surprising straw poll.

    He will be King. There's no constitutional precedent for him not to be (Ed VIII was entirely different, before someone says it).

    Also, there are plenty of people who purport to like William and say he should be King rather than Charles. To them I ask, if you like him so much, why would you want to take away the little life he has left by forcing him to take the throne early?
