Good to know HRH was taken care of and will be fine. Thanks for sharing!

The article noted that Philip was born on the island of Corfu (Kyrkira), but neglected to mention that he was titled "Prince of Greece," a member of the Greek royal family, living in exile, prior to his engagement to Princess Elizabeth.  His last name, "Mountbatten" was adopted at the time of his engagement, around the time that, unfortunately, he converted from Orthodoxy to Anglicanism; (in recent years he has visited the Holy Mountain, Mount Athos).

Very true. I've also heard that one of his sons (grandsons?) has also made regular trips to the Holy Mountain to regularly see a particular elder. There was a matched set of icons at the latest royal wedding, as well...

Shouldn't you be too busy lighting candles or spinning dredels to have time to chorttle and shake your fist in jealousy at the British/Greek royal family?

I remember a few: our own Mihai, Elizabeth's mother, Elizabeth herself is not far from there. I bet percentage-wise royals and others of such parasitic classes make it to 90 more than people on the southside of Chicago, for instance.

I personally know three on the south side who did and have met 3-4 others, so you loose.  If I could remember exactly how many at the Chicago Hospitals (it was the only one in the area) were over 90 (there were a number, although I can't remember if it was over a dozen) I'd have a comfortable margin.  HRH Mihai just made 90, after he participated in Moscow's victory parade for WWII.

Parasitic classes?  HRH wasn't a PCR member.

just for the record, 2 of the persons I mentioned in my previous post aren't members of the British "royal" family. And while there is at least one other poster in this thread who doesn't feel the need to drool over Elizabeth, the Kotuku of New Zealand, I notice all the venom is saved for me.

So I log into the forum to make sure everything is up and running as I do from time to time and am assaulted by someone referring to Her Majesty in such a crass way. Maybe we will extend the forum rule about referring to clergy by their titles to heads of state as well... :)

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. HRH and the rest of the Canadian Royal Family - which we are pleased to share with others  :) - are being remembered in my personal prayers and in church.

I appreciate that you have referred to Her Majesty by her correct family name. I understand your choice to avoid references to royal titles and styles in your writing - not an entirely bad thing as so many people get them all wrong anyway!

It is good to hear that the Duke's general good health will likely contribute to a reasonably rapid recovery.

While royal titles are confusing, esp. to us brazen Yanks, shouldn't we be using them as honorifics just as we do for clergy and bishops - even when we may individually view one or the other as schismatic, heretic etc...? After all, if someone referred to the last Tsar by his first and familial name only, I am sure there would be an appropriate outrage posted here.

When I was a lad, in the time of the Vietnam war, I was briefly employed by Her Majesty in the Ministry of Defence.  I took an oath to defend her honour which would probably oblige me to box your ears if we were in the same room.

And how have I insulted  Paramount Chief of Fiji? By refering to her by her name, which was confered at Baptisim?

Forgive us, Tallitot, I think we assumed you realised how you have insulted Her Majesty.  The fact that you don't is proof of diminished capacity and you should not be held accountable for that.

No it's proof of how ridiculous I find the idea of a hereditary head of state.

Just remember that regardless of how ridiculous you find the idea of a hereditary head of state to be, Queen Elizabeth is still the Queen of England. ;)

but her name is still Elizabeth Mary Alexandra Windsor. besides I have refered to her by some of her titles in this thread as a courtesey. IIRC doesn't the magazine Private Eye refer to her as "Brenda"?

Fiji is a republic but they conferred this title of honour on Her Majesty out of their love and respect for her.

What do they know that we don't?
