I don't like them myself, I just get forced to fund their lavish lifestyles through taxation :uk:


There's been many excuses as to why we still have them, with tradition being the worst.  Some people say they actually pay for themselves through raising money for charity, diplomatic/trade missions overseas etc, but we probably would be better off without them.  Afterall, we also have politicians and diplomats.

It's not just the Queen and a few princes either, there's quite a few dukes and other douchbags around, living in stupidly large stately homes that normal people like me can only dream of.  Some of them actually have steady jobs with good income, but I suspect most of them just rely on public handouts.

Crappy wiki entry giving a brief explaination of how they're funded:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finances_of_the_British_Royal_Family

Hahaha, oh yeah I forgot about that achievement cube.  I think that was just a popularity contest with me vs EJ.  Besides, it's not got a lot to do with the monarchy anyway, just "The British Empire"?  I think i've always said the royals were ass-hats.
