Oh I agree Backwoodsman, I don't think much has changed among the Royals, but our Society has moved on, and many people now don't feel the immense reverence they once did. For example, they are not prepared to accept, excuse or brush over the sort of stuff Prince Andrew has been getting up to.
In cinemas or theatres, the National Anthem was played and we all stood up to attention like soldiers. I don't think that happens now.

In Norwich a few short years ago, the Queen and Prince Philip were driven down St Augustine's Street, and I watched as many pedestrians didn't even bother to stop or look at her. Young folk weren't particularly smitten with the occasion.
(And apparently afterwards, Philip remarked on how the Street had deteriorated and looked shoddy. Arrogant pig!)
