Subject: RE: Burns lyric query
Aw come on, Charles isn't Norman! His Dad is of Greek and Danish extraction, and his Mum part German on her father's side, but Grannie Liz the QM was a Scot, albeit a posh one. He's certainly something of a mongrel, like many of us, and a stranger to both the Scots and the Gaelic tongues,but there's not much Norman about him or indeed any of the Royals.
