Okay, I plan to put up a poll in a day or so (assuming I can work out how) to have a fair assessment of which title is best. I’ll go with the winner, no matter what (unless it is Anthology McAnthologyface or similar) and I’ll abide by the decision.
Ah, it seems Prince Philip has died. That’s a terrible shame, he was mere weeks from his 100th birthday and his telegram from his wife. I would have loved to see his reaction to that.
Mrs. Queen and Snarky Phil are the only monarchs I have known. Mrs. Queen was on the throne before I was born and it will be hard to believe she is no longer on it before I die. Considering my whisky intake, she might be. I’m not sure I want to see the reign of Charles III, having done some research into the first two. Although I might be able to train some of the next batch of Roundheads. It’s not entirely unlikely, Cromwell was 45 when he led the Ironside Cavalry at Marston Moor. I’m older but I drink and I know things.
I have been a staunch supporter of Mrs. Queen but she is the last of the royal family in my mind. I cannot support Charles and his ridiculous green agenda. Spike Milligan was right about him. I see no improvement in William and I expect George to be indoctrinated into the Cult of the Green God too, if he isn’t already. After Elizabeth II, the royal family has no purpose anymore. They certainly have no royalty about them.
Prince Philip was a great man. A man with no filters, he said what was in his mind and sometimes he set off the perpetually offended with his off-the-cuff remarks. Those weak and feeble people like to forget that he actually fought in the second world war, in the navy, against real and genuine Nazis. It meant they would not be validated in calling him a Nazi even though they don’t want to realise what it actually means. It means… them.
There will never be another Phil the Greek. None of his offspring come close. Perhaps he didn’t put enough in. Certainly Charles appears to be a bit of late-pull-out spillage. Maybe Edward, the one who has gone quiet, will rise to replace him. We can hope. In the end… I suppose… it really doesn’t matter.
Mrs. Queen has lost her rock, the man who was her constant support throughout her life. It is common in these cases, even in much younger couples, for one to follow the other into whatever comes after. And they were so very close. I really don’t think she can last much longer, I think her grief will call the Reaper to her. They were together for so very long, his absence will feel like a knife into her soul.
I don’t want Mrs. Queen to die. I really don’t. It’s not just a royalist thing, it’s also a selfish thing. I see what is coming under Charles III and I’d rather she outlived me. And the jug-eared twat too. Although it seems he has infected his son with the same shite.
Traditional Britain has nothing left. When the Queen goes it all goes. There is no continuity.
The Royals have spent all this time keeping Britain intact. None of their successors believe in that. They all want the opposite.
I am a Royalist until Mrs. Queen passes.
After that I am a roundhead.
