The Queen of England is Head of state in Canada ,represented by a Governor General .Me think

Very true---but in reality The Queen or The Gov. General don't say much or contribute close to anything. Hence the PM is ESSENTIALLY the head of state.

That's about all the RAF can muster at the present time, all flying machines powered by a RR Merlin get to fly over central London. Anything painted grey and serviceable is in one of the worldwide sandpits playing paintball for real.

I can understand why Blair and Brown weren't invited; they turned an economically successful and independant and proud nation into an EU lapdog, recession-paralysed shithole. Or something like that.

Major and Thatcher were invited as they are both Knights of the Garter and I think Major was appointed the princes' official guardian when Diana died.
The order of the garter is just an excuse. The royal family make up the rules as they see fit. The queen came to the throne because her uncle had to abdicate for marrying a divorcee. However when it came to Charles she changed the rules so that he could marry Park er Bowels. Perhaps iif the crowd is lucky they might throw a few scraps off the balcony to the homeless

It was very nice. I did fine until they started singing Jerusalem, during which I really struggled to keep my composure.

That's my dose of homesickness for this year...

Oh well. So where's the honeymoon ? Jordan, one of the sultanates? She has to produce a make heir prompto. Is it just luck that none of the royal heirs has been mentally or physically incapacitated?

Will you ever give up being such a sour, miserable, sniping harpie?

Lots of the ordinary people enjoyed today's spectacle, even if intellectual smart-arses like you think you're too cool to watch it.

Your telly has an off-switch, you know.

Are you always so bitter?

Somewhere in the Caribbean, if memory serves me right.

As regards your last question, probably just law of averages.
