Nay. Anachronism.

France has thrived without a monarchy and the Palace of Versailles continues to be a royalist money spinner to this day. Open Buck house/Windsor/Sandringham/Balmoral to the public !

Don't mess with the Royal Family.
They serve a very useful purpose and one day I'm gonna find out what it is.
But, don't fancy the idea of a president, unless it's me.
Overall, if we make more money out of them than spend, I say "Long live the King".
They provide us with a load of laughs, are the reason for maintaining many of our traditions, and remind us that there are bad apples in every crate.
PS. But please replace the National Anthem...it's like a bloody funeral march.

Yay from me. Part of our history and culture. Only symbolic these days, but I think Buck House and the pomp and ceremony etc for the tourists is a good thing. I like the quirky bits of our culture and long may it continue
Like slavery and fox hunting?

Nay from me, but you knew that already.
