If the Sussexes had any sense, they'd eagerly accept an invitation, be on their best behavior, stoically be unresponsive to any boos or catcalls, take whatever treatment the family wants to dish out, or, withhold from them, and fly back home.

From a pure PR standpoint, that's a win-win for both sides.

Westminster Abbey only has capacity for 2,200 persons (2,000 were invited to funeral of QEII). That railway and other extensive work done in 1952 was to add tiers and galleries which expanded seating capacity to 8,000. Modern safety regulations will not allow such a thing to happen again (nor really since IIRC), so no need for a railway and so on.

It also explains why guest list for coronation of KC3 isn't as extensive as it otherwise might have been. They've only got those two thousand some odd seating and that's it.

If somehow it did happen - Scotland abandoned the throne - I wonder what they'd do with the Scottish properties, Balmoral, Birkhall, etc.

On one hand, there's a lot of happy memories and history attached to Scotland, over generations. On the other hand, if Scotland departs the union, does it look right for the royal family to maintain strong ties to the country? You could get a massive amount of money in selling Balmoral or any of the places. They might want even more cash on hand, if the deluge seems likely.

by Anonymousreply 72March 21, 2023 12:34 PM

I heard ALW suggested to Charlie to take center stage at the end of the ceremony, and sing:

"This time I'm staying,

I'm staying for good...

I am back where I was born to be...

With this crown, I'll be meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee"

R93 for dolts like R91 if it’s not “we kicked your asses in 1776” it’s “we saved your asses in WW2”.

They have no other response.

It’s as relevant as Britain and Canada (1812 war), Vietnam (Vietnam War), Native Americans (Red Cloud’s War), China (Formosa Expedition), Laos (Laotian Civil War), Cuba (Bay of Pigs), and Lebanon (Lebanese Civil War) not being able to resist “we kicked your asses”. It’s done and mostly more recently than 1776.
