It's TRUE Nigel.

I do wonder though, how much of the "story" is real?

How do we really know that the young couple want to leave their roles as senior royals?

How do we know that it isnt the seniors throwing out the young uns?

I mean hes the son who is least likely to ever sit on the throne, who married an actress, who his grandad has probably insulted multiple times, as he does with most other nationalities.

It would look better for Da Family, if instead of being expelled, they wanted to desert the royal family duties.

As GG says.

Just sayin

Facebook and other sources are full of stories that Harry isn't even Charles' son. He is the spitting image of James Hewit a friend of Diana's who is also ginger. Harry certainly doesn't look like William.
Maybe that has poisoned matters ?

Did someone say it was a soap opera? There's nothing special about any of them, it's a farce

All so strange to me, when a Canadian reaches celebrity status, the first thing they do is get the hell out of Canada.
This is the reverse and is probably a bad decision by the unworldly pair that may have been groomed by the Canadian government.

It's all so bizarre, a long obsolete concept that a few of us should rule the rest as a birthright, its obsolescence long ago cemented as the "royals" powers were reduced to empty theater so long ago, yet there they are in the family tree that highlights the "line of succession" in its emptiness, and now the whole concept is reduced to a very expensive global soap opera with some of the most ardent fans here in the nation whose founding utterly rejected the underlying premise of the whole structure.

The strangeness of having them may give the UK something that sets them apart from other tourism destinations - that's about it. I thought I'd read somewhere that they attract sufficient tourist revenue to offset the cost of their upkeep. That sounds like it can't be true to me, but I guess you'd probably know?

While I'm certainly not a monarchist, I have done the tourist thing and checked out Buck Palace, Kensington Palace and Balmoral on my travels. Mind you it didn't cost me anything!

I think the demise of the Windsors has been coming for a while - what unique purpose do they serve in this day and age?

Not that strange or special, there are 9 other kingdoms in Europe alone.

I'm sure more tourist would come if we were to get rid of the Saxe-Coburg-Gothas (aka Windsors) and let them see EVERYTHING in the palaces ie their private quarters.

Exactly.... Just ignore the press. They live in a bubble anyway, only see people who fawn over them.
It's also overstated - there's a number of places in the UK where the royals can wander about and all that happens is the locals say "hi" in passing.
