Merry Christmas first of all. I have to say, I don’t get the adulation this family gets in my parents homeland. They are parasites who contribute very little to British life and culture. The church they head up is full of liberals and homosexuals, and besides the church should be run my ministers of the gospel not heads of state. Prince Philip came from a Nazi supporting family. They probably had Diana killed. I’m really not a fan.
Squabbling re monarchies and the royals’ usefulness aside, Elizabeth is remarkable woman.
Imho, the world is a better place for her being in it.
Absent her steadying iconic influence, one can easily imagine Britain being completely unhinged by now.
She always mentions her Christian faith in every year’s Christmas message.
