    Royalty Thread #11: Putting the "Fun" in Dysfunctional

    I think the bragging rights alone are worth any potential headaches H&M may bring to Canada.:D :saint: Can you even imagine the potential tourism ads? Canada good enough for a prince....good enough for you!:rofl::saint: Canada. You don’t have to pay a prince’s ransom to visit here.:rofl::saint:

    Yes I know No one is arguing that H&M shouldn’t have security. I was just saying if the Duke got his paid for by the BRF, precedent has been set and perhaps H&M should have theirs paid for too by the BRF or at least a contribution towards it.

    I’d like to know if the Duke of Windsor has protection paid by the royal family when he abdicated the throne. And if so, why shouldn’t H&M get it now?

    Royalty Thread #11: Putting the "Fun" in Dysfunctional

    I watched a documentary earlier this year about two older British men (twin brothers) who recounted how their mother prostituted them out as children to members of the aristocracy. This happened in the 80s, I think. :( She stopped when they got big enough to fight back against the men they...

    I’ve heard that there are actually people who are hired to post inflammatory comments on websites (hired by the owners I don’t know how true that is but I wouldn’t doubt it for a second. I do know that the opposite is true (employees were told to give positive product reviews on online...

    Yes. That’s always been what have thought but of course, that doesn’t fulfill the “Meghan is evil” narrative that some people want perpetuated in the media.

    Celebrities and athletes jump the queue all the time in Canada. It hasn’t been an issue yet. Plus the have more than enough $$$ that they could wait it out for 18 months if need be.

    Yes I think it was because of the arms. So hopefully that can be negotiated. I have a sneaky feeling that H&M will have no problem getting a work visa if needed. :lol:

    Royalty Thread #11: Putting the "Fun" in Dysfunctional

    In the article I posted earlier there was some catch 22 about royalty not being permitted to use their own private security when in another commonwealth country but perhaps that could be negotiated if said persons are residing here for 6 months. Plus it will need to be discussed if there are...

    Yes plus how reliable is the Evening Standard? Clearly it’s relying on an inside source or leak. The Official position of the Canadian government would be as Morneau has stated. ETA If the government wants to keep their votes in Quebec they will tread carefully with this issue.

    Well they keep saying that they will spend half their time in the UK (I assume doing royal duties then) so wouldn't they be entitled to keep some of their financial support? Why is there even the question that they should have none of it?

    Royalty Thread #11: Putting the "Fun" in Dysfunctional

    I heard that the position of Govenor General might only be filled on an election to election basis. Did Trudeau or Payette ever say that she was staying on? But I agree it’s unlikely considering the Sussexes have said that they will split their time between UK and NA. I don’t think a part...
