    Well, trust me - after muddling through Catholic theology in a group academic setting, and making that work, you get to the point where you can argue pretty much anything!

    Ah, thanks for that Grand Mel - much appreciated.

    Here's what heretofore came to my mind, when I heard the term "King Charles' Cavalier":

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex insist on their website that they “do not receive any tax privileges” — but the truth is slightly more complicated.

    While the couple attracted some criticism last week after saying that they wanted to “work to become financially independent”, their current fortune is the result of huge tax advantages given to Prince Harry’s relatives.
    ================================================== ==========
    Their main source of income is via his father from the Duchy of Cornwall, which benefits from significant tax breaks.

    If it weren't for tourist income revolving around the Royal Family, they should all either be banished or jailed for corruption.

    See Duchy of Cornwall - Wikipedia
    This Sunday Times story is symptomatic of why Harry and Megan should leave for Canada. The charge of tax-breaks etc applies to Charles and his kids (William and Harry) yet Harry and Megan are the ones the newspapers focus on.
    As it is, the Royals bring in a lot of income to the UK so I'm not ready to call for a Republic yet but let's treat them all the same way except when one or other commits an act the others haven't (i.e. makes friends with a reknowned paedophile etc)

    Tax breaks, on the other hand, are awesome. See what people can earn if the gubmint stopped robbing them via the use of taxes?
