I’m about halfway thru season 2 of the Crown and I feel like I’m taking this in a different way than others. I’m mostly seeing how ridiculous a monarchy and especially the English monarchy is. The royal family is granted over $100 million a year (American) by English tax players…for what? Plus the way they cling to outdated traditions to preserve the church is crazy. Then their staid staff give the royal family awful and/or lazy advice that blows up in their faces and then criticizes them for it. Yesterday’s Oprah interview did nothing to change that opinion.

On other social media, I had posted The Sex Pistols’ “God Save The Queen” song…that about sums up my opinion of English royalty.
