    Although I'm not his biggest fan, he didn't get invited because of the amount of security it would've taken to make sure they were safe.

    Isn't the king and queen largely a ceremonial role? I never understood the huge hype. The Prime Minister has the power along with the 'government'. I just don't get it.


    By the way, the firefighters UNION put a freeze on all contributions to Obama :lol:

    That's how it is now, but if the Queen wanted too she can flex her muscle as she is still ultimately the final word still in large issues and wars.

    The queen made her a dutchess. I guess she has to learn to be a princess before becoming one.
