Re: Megxit

Have any of you ever been to Vancouver Island? I have, and it’s amazing.
If I win around CHF 1000000 then I will retire there as well.

I hope they will do well, these young people that had to suffer like nobody ever suffered before in history.

Good luck to them. Though I think they'll be fine once the new baby shock has worn off. In about... 12 years.
Haha! Then the horrible teenage years will ensue

Yup, went up the Grouse grinder the hard way.

Anybody else imagining a pregnant Megan with a fag and a bottle of plonk in a rundown trailerpark with Harry on the BBQ listening to the Toronto BlueJays getting trounced on the wireless?

Do remember to just dab the eyes gently, no snorting into the kleenex. After all, YOU are still British.

Sarcasm detector is broken?

Btw, Steve Bannon has a different version about their so-called independence and their business in Canada....any opinions?

his claim doesn't seem to be backed up by any serious analysis I was able to find.
Serious analysis or not, Chuff’s arguments are more compelling than the ‘parasites’ post he was responding to.

Technically they both are but it will no longer be their official or required form of address.

Is it a generational thing ? as like Brexit, the over 30's seem to be generally against Harry & Megan doing
their own thing with the often quoted 'letting the side down' whereas the under 30's in the UK are all for it.

I think it's an English thing to believe that it matters what they think about the activities of members of the Royal family.

Very true, thought that I’d added more zeros, sorry. Not used to dealing with so many zeros in personal messages. It looked like a lot. But sure - a nice retreat on Chestermans will easily set you back 5 million. Plus a house in Victoria ...

Not to mention the crazy property prices in Vancouver over on the mainland.
And skiing on Whistler is just a very short helicopter ride away.

I had actually meant to add many more zeros.

Think that these wonderful retreats will not stay paparazzi free much longer, unfortunately.

Same for any country with an active and current monarchy, I would imagine. Why wouldn’t there be interest among the populations of those countries?
