Kindness Journey – Day 128 – Royal pains

The royal charade has gone on far too long. I try to block out the constant yammering about the late Queen, but the story won’t go away. Since I’m not British, I won’t pretend to understand how the British people feel about all this.

I wonder why the British still keeps the monarchy, especially now. I understand that the Queen was a prominent world figure for 70 years, but now her children, especially her unpopular heir, are supposed to take over. Why not just end it here? The Windsors are filthy rich; they won’t suffer. The money used to support the royals and put on all the bread and circuses could help house, clothe, and feed the poor, care for the sick and elderly, properly educate the children, and many other worthwhile goals.

When they bury the Queen, they should bury the monarchy with her.
