    They seem to handle their public commitments with grace and style. I think Prince Charles is rather stuffy, and will not be a popular king. But his sons (Diana's sons) are popular, and have revived an interest in the many contributions that the royal family makes.
    We were just in London last week for Christmas (me, husband and our kids). The English seem very excited about Markle and the "new generation" of royals. I think at one time they were unpopular but that seems to be changing. I have to hand it to Queen Elizabeth for embracing a much more modern approach.

    No it would be, possibly, probably, an insult to Trump.

    And since it "should be" the preference of the bride and groom, then still definitely not.

    The fact that England still has a royal family is pretty much the same thing as racism. If I were president I wouldn't even acknowledge people that feel they deserve power as a birthright.

    Just for fun.
    Yes, and a well-deserved one. As of 11/09/2016 we deserve just about every insult we get.

    England's royal family is by now just a figure head.
