Aye Van I agree with you about the monarchy. That is the existence of it. About the Britishness of it is not my version though. Just pointing out the facts about her ancestry. As far as we can ascertain anyone's ancestry is what they think it is of course:-) Basically her royal family line goes right back at least towards the beginnings of the first millenium in Scotland with only a handful of generations (in that line) living outwith the UK. Never mind the fact that they have all (ie monarch and close heirs) been brought up and lived in Britain all their lives.
