    Welcome to a brand new audio edition of The Mark Steyn Show, recorded live at sea before an audience of Mark Steyn Cruisers from around the world. Today's episode brings together two of the Steyn Show's favourite guests - Conrad Black and Samantha Smith - to take the temperature of the new reign of Charles III a year-and-a-half since the death of his mother, and to consider the merits of monarchy versus republican alternatives. And Conrad's proposal for a somewhat paradoxical constitutional reform prompts a scornful response from Samantha. To listen to the show, simply click above.

    On October 7, 2023, the Sabbath of the Joy of the Torah, the largest massacre of Jews since the Holocaust took place. It took place not in the Diaspora, but in the Jewish state, in the south of the country, in the areas bordering Gaza. In an independent, strong Jewish state founded to protect Jews from pogroms, there was a very real pogrom. Why did it happen?October 7 was a holiday, and the soldiers and officers wanted to be at home with their families, not on military bases in the Israeli south. They wished to keif and enjoy themselves. Hedonism...

    Queen Elizabeth II’s former chaplain issued a warning that King Charles III’s multifaith and multiculturalism threatens to be the end of his own house and the end of the British monarchy as a whole. Gavin Ashenden, who served as chaplain to the queen from 2008 to 2017, spoke to British outlet GB News on Sunday, saying, “I think that if this slow movement into multiculturalism and multifaith goes on, we’ll lose the monarchy, because in the end, I don’t think it will be true to itself.” Ashenden’s comments came after the king’s first royal Christmas message since he assumed the...

    The position of lady-in-waiting has been scrapped at Buckingham Palace, bringing to an end a centuries-old tradition. Combining the roles of companion, adviser and secretary, ladies-in-waiting played a key part in Royal life, accompanying the late Queen and her sister Princess Margaret on official duties and foreign tours. But in a sign of the new Queen Consort Camilla’s unfussy approach, they will be replaced by six aides styled ‘Queen’s Companions’.
  • Denmark’s Queen just stripped 4 of her grandchildren of their royal titles so that they can ‘shape their own existence.’ The kids and their parents aren’t happy

    Only four of eight grandchildren will retain their royal titles. Royalty in Europe is declining ever further as princes and princesses across the continent are losing their official statuses. In a bid to protect the youngest royals from the pressures of public life, the Queen of Denmark has stripped four of her grandchildren of their royal titles. Queen Magrethe, now Europe’s only reigning Queen and longest-serving monarch, has decided that the children of her youngest son, Prince Joachim, should be able to “shape their own existence” instead of having to perform the official duties required of them if they kept...

    I must get this off my chest. Mind you, this is more of a rant to all those feeling nostalgic and remorseful over a Queen who lived the life of privilege from birth to death. As much as I mourn the passing of any human, I pray she was saved. While I do truly feel she was a good woman, I do not understand the borderline worship so many in America seem to feel for her. She was nothing more to me than the World's biggest welfare Queen. Mind you, the royal family made their wealth off the backs of...

    Queen Elizabeth II — the longest-serving monarch in the United Kingdom's history and the second longest-serving in world history — died Thursday afternoon at age 96 while at Balmoral Castle in Scotland. A tweet from the Royal Family broke the news to the UK and admirers of the Queen around the world: Born in 1926, the Queen's storied life included serving in the Women’s Auxiliary Territorial Service during World War II, repairing and driving vehicles to aid the war effort while tending to her fellow citizens as the Nazis laid siege to her country. Ascending to the throne in February...

    On Thursday, BBC News presenters wore black suits and ties as they announced the latest information on the health of the Queen – though much of what is still being reported remains vague, as no additional information has been provided by the Palace at this time. The BBC’s online graphics also switched from red to black, suggesting the possibility that Britain’s public service broadcaster has already been informed of the Queen’s passing.

    U.S.—The results of a CNN poll revealed that 52% of Americans are in favor of abolishing the nation's Democratic Republic in favor of a monarchy ruled by an Ultra MAGA King. Another 39%—mostly bureaucrats—are reportedly satisfied with the current system of government. The poll findings, released Thursday, have alarmed both Democrats and Republicans in government who are reportedly "shook" that citizens don't appreciate them. "I don't know why anyone would trade in an oppressive and corrupt totalitarian government for a monarchy ruled by divine right," said Rep Adam Schiff. "Frankly, I'm shocked people don't appreciate how much we lie to...

    "I applaud her for that, and that's a fantastic achievement," the Sex Pistols frontman added of the upcoming Platinum JubileeJohn Lydon has said in a new interview that, ahead of the Platinum Jubilee, he is “actually really, really proud of the Queen for surviving and doing so well”. The Sex Pistols frontman was speaking ahead of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, which will be celebrated in the UK from June 2-5 to mark Queen Elizabeth II’s 70 years on the throne. To mark the occasion, Lydon’s former band are reissuing their classic anti-monarchy single ‘God Save The Queen’. Speaking to Piers...

    In his first public appearance after five years of semiofficial banishment, Curtis Yarvin began to cry. It was late February 2020 and Yarvin was the special guest at a live podcast in Los Angeles. A graphic promoting the event shows the computer engineer turned political philosopher, then 46 years old, wearing his black leather motorcycle jacket and wire-framed glasses and staring out with practiced intensity. Over Yarvin’s left shoulder floats a bust of the deceased rapper Lil Peep. The moody digital aesthetic is called vaporwave. Ma, Pa, have you heard of vaporwave? It is a very of-the-moment style that uses...

    MOSCOW, Sept 30 – Russia’s former Imperial capital is set to play host to the wedding of a descendant of the Russian royal family in the first such event in more than a century. Grand Duke George Mikhailovich Romanov will tie the knot with Italian fiancée Victoria Romanovna Bettarini at St. Isaac’s Cathedral in St. Petersburg on Friday in an elaborate religious ceremony with hundreds of foreign guests in attendance. Russia’s last tsar Nicholas II, his wife and five children were killed by a revolutionary firing squad in July 1918 in the cellar of a merchant’s house in Yekaterinburg, a...
  • British monarchy near its ‘end game,’ won’t outlast Prince William, expert says

    Britain’s royal family is likely in its “end game” — and will probably not “outlast” Prince William’s eventual reign as king, according to an award-winning UK author and dame. “I think it’s the end game. I don’t know how much longer the institution will go on,” Dame Hilary Mantel told the Telegraph. “I’m not sure if it will outlast William. So I think it will be their last big era,” predicted the “Wolf Hall” author, who was awarded the Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire in 2006 and then made a dame by Prince Charles in...

Tell us about Megxit!’ It’s the question I am most asked when I open the floor for questions after giving a speech about Brexit and the state of Britain. And my answer is a straight one: Meghan Markle has been an absolute disaster for the British monarchy. Like some gangster, she has committed a smash-and-grab on the Palace, snatching what can be easily sold, trashing anything of sentimental value. Her latest stunt – pocketing an alleged $500K for ratting out her husband’s mental...

    Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco is blasting Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) in a new video statement after the governor threatened to withhold funding to counties refusing to enforce the governor's latest round of coronavirus lockdowns. Sheriff Bianco accused the governor of being both hypocritical and dictatorial, and said the Riverside County Sheriff's Department would not be "blackmailed, bullied, or used as muscle against Riverside County residents." "The dictatorial attitude toward California residents while dining in luxury, traveling, keeping his business open, and sending his kids to in-person private schools is very telling about his attitude toward California residents, his feelings...

    On Wednesday, hundreds of years after revolutionaries made the case for the supremacy of the American system and decades after Hollywood began to beam its influence farther and wider than the British Empire ever did, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex swapped life in the British royal family for a multiyear deal with Netflix. The couple are writing a new chapter in the age-old American story of reinvention and self-determination by announcing that they are rejecting the British monarchy for the stuff of American dreams. They've decided they can have more power over their lives and influence over everyone else...

    The Federalist ^ | May 15, 2020 | Nathan Stone
    It’s absurd to claim Cotton was saying Shakespeare was American simply because he said Chinese students should learn about the playwright 'from America.' Shakespeare understood ordered liberty. To repurpose words from “Macbeth,” social media and politics are “sound and fury, signifying nothing.” For proof, look no further than the response to Sen. Tom Cotton’s claim that Chinese students who study in American universities should not be taught quantum computing.Instead, Cotton said, “If Chinese students want to come here and study Shakespeare and the Federalist Papers, that’s what they need to learn from America.” He called it a scandal that American...
  • Spain's King Felipe VI Renounces Father's Inheritance

    BBC ^ | 3/15/2020
    Spain's King Felipe VI has renounced the inheritance of his scandal-hit father Juan Carlos. In a statement, the palace said that Juan Carlos, who abdicated in 2014, would also stop receiving an annual grant of €194,000 (£174,800; $217,100). This comes as the 82-year-old former king is being criticised for his lavish lifestyle. Juan Carlos, who reigned for 39 years, is also facing an investigation by the Swiss financial authorities. This follows media reports that he had received $100m in 2008 from Saudi Arabia via an offshore account.
