    Of course, what Republicans also usually "forget" is that you shouldn't compare the cost of a monarchy against that of a vacuum. You should compare against a presidency, which tends to be rather pricy itself, what with the inevitable egos and grandstanding.
    Especially the American presidency currently, with all those trips to Mar-a-Lago to golf.

    High heels? Walking around in flatties was bad enough due to lower backache which I put down to the sudden shift in the centre of gravity postpartum.

    Baby Sussex is named as Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. Meghan and Harry have named their first child Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. The name is believed to have little precedent within the modern British royal family.

    Archie is a popular name apparently!

    The Danny Baker tweet was disgraceful. He’s even more of an idiot to make the excuse that he did not make any connection with it being racist.

    Was never a fan anyway, but yes a total idiot and fully deserving of the consequences.

    There seems to be a trend for people in certain positions of privilege to be seen as legitimate targets for hate just because of the good fortune that has landed them in that privilege.

    Well they are legitimate targets but there is no such thing as a legitimate racist comment, he’s not funny at the best of times.
