Why not? Who cares if I or others do or dont, what difference is it to you? If you dont like that, why waste your time even posting about it. Your post had nothing to do with this thread and your second comment was even more pointless then the first.

everyone is entitled to their opinions, even if they do not care much for the subject.

I am grateful she is here safe and sound and now hope this family continues to grow and be grounded as they have shown they are, despite "tradition". I see a LOT of Diana in William and Kate both being someone that will do what they think RIGHT for their family, vs expected!!!!!

You sure can post whatever you want. It actually made me laugh, so thanks. Keep posting whatever you want.

I particularly like how you post that I shouldn't post because I'm wasting my time. I never told you not to post. I just told you I enjoyed it.

I can't do much else but I'm not going to waste time following the wall to wall garbage about the new princess.

There are more important things going on in the world. Just sayin'.
So everything you do in your life - every second of every minute of every day - is spent in service to others and never doing anything just for fun? How boring.

Actually, there income is derived from their property and investments and, yes, business ventures. To understand why this is the case you would have to understand English property and constitutional law, which seems unlikely. On top of that they do actually pay taxes. Even if you don't live in England but have laws based on English Law, those laws which govern your own property and inheritance stem from English property law. If you disagree in principle with the legal basis for the British monarchy and want it abolished, this in turn sets a precedent for the denial of the same rights to you. Those people of the ilk who wish the monarchy to be abolished -- socialists, anarchists, etc. would be more than happy to rob you of your wealth and property, as has actually happened throughout the world the last 100 years or so.

Beautiful little girl!

I may not know the royals personally, but I've watched William grow up in the public eye. He didn't ask for this life, but it is the one he has. He seems like a good guy and I wish him and his family happiness.

Do you want to get it, or is your only goal to ridicule those who are interested?
