It doesn’t matter that he is an adulterer. It doesn’t matter that he told his then lover, now his wife, that he would like to be a certain sanitary product for her. Well, enough said about all that.

Pretty soon we’re going to have to make a decision if we are going to put up with this nonsense and this type of person as our head of state. The thought of us, or anyone else for that matter, standing to attention and singing ‘God Save Our Gracious King, Long Live Our Noble King’, given what we know, is enough to cause many of us to break out in fits of uncontrollable giggles.
There is another aspect to this which has hardly been canvassed.
What a dreadful slap in the face it would be for the unfortunate King Charles III (if that is what he would be called and you have to feel sorry for the poor bloke) if as soon as his mother departed this mortal coil, or abdicated, Australia, Canada and New Zealand declared themselves republics. It might be the catalyst that prompts the not-so-United Kingdom to get rid of the lot of them.
What would happen then? Where would the Saxe-Coburg-Gotha-Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glucksburg alias Windsor-Mountbatten family go? That’s an easy one. They would probably go back to Germany whence they came. They have lots of family connections there.
Well, except for maybe Prince Harry, of course. He might have to stay in England.
