My town was empty the day of Diana's funeral. We walked to a local pub which was empty, just two bar staff hunched over a small radio. Everyone was watching the funeral on TV unless they went to London or Althorp. My daughter went there and there were hundreds lining the motorway. It was quite clear that day and in the preceding days where the nation's sympathy lay, and it was with Diana and her sons, no-one else.

 8((()*/ I think so too. Maybe people weren't so involved at the beginning of the week, but by the end it was obvious something immense was going on. Who will ever forget the applause from outside the church being heard after her brother had spoken. The royals didn't like that did they &%&(+

Obviously it was a big deal to the Monarchy, otherwise they wouldn't have held off as long as they did.  I was critical of the decision not to fly the flag at the time, but distance from the event and a bit of maturity has made me see things slightly differently now.  You can see me however you want to see me, but I can assure you as with many things your vision is somewhat askew.

Yes, it was a big deal to the royals because they were still living in the 19th century (or earlier). Do you agree with that?

To them Tradition was more important than the death, and more important than the people.

Sure, but then they're not like you or I - that's what makes them "the Monarchy".  You do know that underneath they're like these giant lizards don't you?

I have no strong views either way?  If anything slightly pro royalty.  Watched a prog last night featuring Prince Harry and as far as I am concerned he is a good ambassador for the country as far as these things go:

I also have no strong views either way. Sometimes I seem to end up supporting a position in a debate due to the strong views of others. I was trying to work out if Harry's going bald yet.  8(>((
No-one here believes the parents were directly involved in MM's disappearance because belief without evidence is useless.

Here's the thing - I would actually prefer the Royal Family to be completely distant, unapproachable and mysterious, to wear crowns and ermine robes at all times and be able to pass laws and start wars just as in olden times, not riding about on bicycles and calling me "mate" and having Snoop Dog on speed dial.  If you've got to have royalty they should be the real deal.  Let them rule, like totally.   8((()*/

And Diana's brother is such a fine example of Noblesse Oblige.  I don't think.  I would happily see him stripped of his lands and title.
Perhaps we could have a Referendum on who should go and who should stay.

They still do to some extent. We're still in 1688. The City is still a state within a state.

I'd forgotten about that, I got goose bumps.They were not comfortable that day at all, and no wonder. Do you think people will accept Queen Camilla if the day ever comes, or has it all been forgotten?

It's actually running the country to some extent.

You'd forgotten about it? @)(++(* That's my point destroyed then.

Queen Camilla? Doubt it.

How quaint. We could let the aristocracy have free rein too - like Lord Glasgow and the waiter!
