    Will we each be a proper Charlie?

    We had the Victorians, and the Georgians and Edwardians, I suppose we will be known as the New Elizabethans, what about when/if Charlie Big Ears comes to the throne? Will everybody be a proper Charlie?

      No- because I understand that he will use the regnal title King George VII:
      a. in memory of his late grandfather; and
      b. as his fourth forename is indeed George.

      So we'll all be Georgians- except jta, I guess, who admits to being a Charlie!

        Some neo-Georgian songs (titles or lyrics):

        Georgia on my mind
        And Georgian girls make me scream and shout [Back in the USSR]
        Rainy night in Georgia
        Long way to Georgia
        The night the lights went out in Georgia
        Why, Georgia, why
        The devil cam down to Georgia
        Midnight train to Georgia
        Going back to Georgia
        Sweet Georgia Brown

                  On whose authority do you say that? Are you in an MI5 plot?
                  And what do Kate Winslett and Lonardo DiCaprio have to do with it all?

                    She's probably right Jeffrey, you only have to look at the family history to see the women generally out live the men by a long period.

                    Albert died at 42, Victoria lasted till she was 81.
                    Eddie the VII lasted 69 years
                    Georgie the V was 70 when he croaked.
                    Geo VI was just 57.
                    Phillip's lasted well, but then he come's from different stock.

                    It ain't looking good for 'Jugears'

                      Edward VII is the nearest exemplar. Long reign by mother, son elderly at succession, short reign by son followed. There have only ever been six Queens regnant- and only two since the 1707 Union (Queen Vctoria and Queen Elizabeth II- whom Scots deny the 'II' on that account!)

                        No, you both misunderstand me. Charles will not be king because:

                        (i) the Queen has spent a long time regretting ever having produced him, however, she is just about bright enough to realise that he is a philandering twit and will refuse on principle to abdicate in his favour. Her mother went on until about 105, as may Her Madge.
                        (ii) if she met a nasty end tomorrow (e.g if she were savaged by a Royal Corgi or mistaken for a deer and shot at Balmoral), the Great British Public would rise up in rebellion and abolish the whole parasitic tribe of them.

                        The public put up with the present Queen, either because she forms part of that unfocused and irrational feeling in the depths of their consciousness which they mistake for patriotism, or because they are so apathetic they've never really thought about it. They would not put up with Charles because they like their monarchs either to be old, female and (relatively) sensible, or young, male, goodlooking and married to a Fairytale Princess (not to a swamp donkey).

                          HRH is of course Queen of the UK, not GB. You are in a very small minority of republican diehards.

                            She is in fact Queen of a load more countries than that.

                            And you are assuming that I would be active in, or at least in favour of the rebellion - where did I say that?

                              It's 'cos you've spent the last three weeks consorting with republicans. You've been infected with their mindset. but enough of that, isn't that Camilla a lovely lady (not) what a good Queen consort she will make.
