Why do people here insist the British are wasting their tax Dollars. The unit in the UK is the Pound and has been since before the Americas were "discovered"

Start creating money straight away... Get longer along with your family by doing jobs that solely need for you to own a laptop and an online access and you'll be able to have that at your home. begin observing to $8000 a month> w­w­w.W­O­R­K­7­0.ℂ­o­m

Nice of Kate not to have aborted her baby, abortion is  so popular here in the U.S., don't know about England.

The Royal Family is so useless. Why do the tax payers pay to support their lifestyle. It is time to reform this outdated system of establishing public funds to pay for royals expenses. What a royal scam.

@ Dora Vante: The British crown is most of all a symbol of historical continuity for Great Britain. It is a country that during the last 300 years has had no revolutions and no change of government. It is a country where there are old traditions, but also modernisation and renewal. People cherish it, although its existence has no rational and universal purpose.

Stop with your British royal scam propaganda it is a useless institution funded by public dollars. Time to reform this outdated system of establishing higher up people and be pro equality for everyone.
