Subject: RE: BS: 'Queen no longer speaks Queen's English'
The British Royal Family have never really been top drawer since that lot from Hanover took over the franchise back in 1715.

"My advice is to get rid of the royal family, and get presidents instead like we have here in the States." That makes sense until you get to the comma.

Now if they had their collective head screwed on, they'd have ensured that Charles came back from his spell in Australia all those years ago speaking Strine. Or, with all that time in Balmoral, why not Scottish accents? Why have they picked the one accent that gets up everybody's noses?

Now if I was designing a Royal Family I'd have all of them with different accents. Or change it every year in teh Queen's Sopeech - so that next year "Queen's English" would mean talking Brummie, for example...
