Isn't it time we dump the monarchies? The British monarchy is the worst bunch of f-ups and louses around and yet they live in rich opulence and thumb their noses at their subjects and the world in general. Its like how stupid is the general public to allow these farces to continue?

Digital photography gear is consistently inconsistent.

Other have already commented on the cost/benefit analysis of having the Royals.
In addition, I would like to add that Prince Charles' farms produce wonderful organic food and delicacies, like buttermilk scones, honey, strawberry jam which is just out of this world, superb ham and other products.
His farming business makes a lot of money also, he even pays taxes, a damnable thing for a royal, isn't it ?
If you were to argue that today's royals are merely the descendants of the village bullies and local heroes of two thousand years ago who were "elected" to their job of king of something, I might agree with you.

PS

some people also write "skones" instead of "scones", I wonder about that.
