  1. A rich person with no real job who makes no contribution to society – except to sell mags & newspapers – yet receives accolades ! Weird! She’s probably a nice person but of what relevance is she???

    • Maybe the Royals in general give the commonwealth the feeling of stability and pride for their people. To say they don’t work hard simply isn’t true, they are leaders of their country and the charity work is never ending. Let’s face it good news stories are very rare, certainly no one is Australia brings about that warm fuzzy feeling do they.? Maria Gray others enjoy the Royals and probably think you are nothing but a grumpy woman! How sad is that.

    • absolute piffle ….royals do not work …they turn up to charity events in their names …which actually costs the town / event planner heaps ..extra security is always needed ..which in turn costs the British taxpayer even more to keep them…not one single pound is ever given from their incredible personal fortune …by all means believe in your fluffy Royal fairy tales Denise …but don’t call people names ..when they speak the truth ….

    • Just another point of view. I disagree with both you ladies, and I also am allowed a point of view. No one that knows me believes I am a royalist and you’re wrong with that. Good news stories was the point I was making. If you can find a good one for Australia please ladies let’s hear it.

    • The royals do the same jobs our members of parliament do! Cutting ribbons, showing up on disaster sites, handing over trophies and chairing charities! I like to see another woman in her 80s who does as much PR as the Queen does! Where ever the Royals go bigger crowds gather! I appreciate what they are doing and I am NOT a monarchist!
