Are you a royalist? It seems a lot of time foreigners are more into them than those of us from the UK.

I don't hate them but not a royalist either. While they cost a lot they also bring in a shitload of cash through tourism.

I think the royals are better than they have ever been. The last generation were a bit snobby (like Princess Anne, Prince Charles etc), but their offspring are great.

Seeing the likes of Princess William, Prince Harry, Eugenie (hot), Zara Phillips etc in the papers they are just normal everyday young people who go out and get wasted.

How do they bring in money through tourism? People don't go to England to see the Queen, they go to see Buckingham Palace (and other things). They aren't royal-spotting, they're checking out the massive fucking buildings they live in. Those massive fucking buildings would still be there if there was on royal family.

not true. no one gives a crap about seeing other palaces, such as St James or whatever. They go to see Buckingham Palace, coz thats where the queen lives.

People go and visit other palaces all the time. Buckingham Palace is a highlight, not a reason. Nobody wants to fly for ages to look at one pretty building. They go all over the show. London would have no problems with tourism if Buckingham Palace disappeared off the face of the Earth tomorrow.

Prince Phillip & Harry are lulzmakers so I can't hate them.

Philip calls black people zulu spear chuckers and Harry wears Nazi badges to his grans b'day bash. Brilliantly short-sighted behaviour.

William and the other toffs are boring as fuck and can go die.

To strengthen Raven's claim, there's Pickadilly Circus (London's equivalent to Times Square), Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, the Palament building, and the Tower of London.

I am not a "royalist" but I love too look at the history of the royal family (Henry VIII, Queen Victoria, King George VI [who was the King during World War II], etc.) I also find fascinating how, through both blood and marriage, much of the British royal family are related to the royal family of other nations; Hesse, Germany, Russia, Denmark, Austria-Hungary, and can even be indirectly traced back to the Roman Caesars.

you should take tower of london off your list. thats a royal building. crown jewels, her majesty's fortress and all that.

the royals bring in tourism, its ignorant to argue that they dont.

no ones denying they arent a uselessbunch of toffs, who live off our money and do very little for us. but they do add to tourism.

Point is, all the royal buildings would still be there if the royal family wasn't.

And if my history is correct (which it may well not be) the Tower Of London was built in 1066 on orders of William The Conqueror, before the traditional English monarchy was established, right? In which case, while it may be a royal building now, that's not what it was really meant for. Could be wrong though.
