Lets take the plebs minds off the mess the government sin and get Lizzies name out the frame ...A WEDDING .The fools will love that and they'll be so delighted they'll forget about everything else ...even the cost of it .
REALLY!! is England so gullible ?

Nope and neither have a fallen for the sickly photos of H&M and baby that we are not having thrust at us . Their new PR people must be working their bleedin’ socks off .

I think it's the press that are responsible for all that glurge (and the fake feud stuff). Don't read it.

Too right London.

What about Scotland paddyanne? Lizzie is also your queen.

paddyann Thu 26-Sep-19 12:01:19

I dont see the same level of subsevience here that I see on this page.Quite frankly most polls here are saying we get Independnece and then ditch the monarchy ..it tends to be the post war generation who still think a Queen is something we need .
Lizzie was never MY queen ..I am no ones "subject" I have never stood for the national anthem in my life and never will

So you think 'here', by that I assume you mean Gransnet, is representative of England?

Riverwalk Thu 26-Sep-19 12:07:10

Sorry, I meant to say 'this page' as being representative of England.

Wedding ??

merlotgran Thu 26-Sep-19 12:28:47

Who's getting married?

Framilode Thu 26-Sep-19 12:29:15

I wish them well but, frankly, the timing is ....interesting.

Probably because England has a larger population and therefore proportionally there will be more Royalists on here? There are plenty in Scotland, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Who's getting married?

SirChenjin Thu 26-Sep-19 12:33:13

A quick google tells me it's Princess Eugenie. That will take the heat off Brexit and Andrew for a bit.

Anniebach Thu 26-Sep-19 12:42:15

England gullible? N.Ireland, Scotland and Wales and England
= the U.K

annsixty Thu 26-Sep-19 12:45:38

Eugenie is already married, it is Beatrice.

merlotgran Thu 26-Sep-19 12:45:54

Eugenie's already married so it must be Beatrice.

midgey Thu 26-Sep-19 12:48:01

Ooh you cynics!

Jane10 Thu 26-Sep-19 12:55:26

Well what a sour post paddyann. I've just looked at the pictures and it's nice to see a happy young couple. That's all. It's just a nice change from all the political nonsense going on. Good luck to Beatrice and her young man.

grannylyn65 Thu 26-Sep-19 12:56:44

‘Glurge’ is a wonderful word🤣

merlotgran Thu 26-Sep-19 13:08:56

BTW. Where is Eugenie's husband. Did she go to that flashy celeb wedding in Italy on her own?

SirChenjin Thu 26-Sep-19 13:12:23

Apologies - my mistake, it's Beatrice!

We'll need to make sure that we don't have any more national crises, I don't think there's anyone else left of marrying age in the RF

Anniebach Thu 26-Sep-19 13:14:27

No more of marry age

pinkquartz Thu 26-Sep-19 13:16:56

Is it working?

Anniebach Thu 26-Sep-19 13:21:45

Wedding is next year
