Will England ever have another female as head of the Monarchy?

First born is heir now, but there are a few generations of first born males already in line.  If the Monarchy holds on, it's only a matter of time.

I sort of get why the UK cares but no idea why the rest of the world still does.  They are currently a topic in 3 different threads here at the moment.    They are like a less talented version of the Kardashians.

Agreed. I feel the same way every time there is a "royal wedding". I don't understand all the hoopla. At least in this case she had been a very public figure for a long time.

I think it’s fine to admire QE, and think the rest of the family are duds. And not pay much attention to them, while respecting her.

I think that makes sense.  She is a remarkable woman with 70 years of service.  The last icon of a monarchy that has outserved its usefulness especially with the following generations.

I don't care about them as people but I'm into all the pageantry.  I like that kind of thing about anything.  The longest wedding I ever went to was an Orthodox one and it was great.

 

In all seriousness, you watch the Kardashians.  They are a more modern version of pageantry.  They are far more entertaining, attractive, successful, and of course self-made than the Windsor family ever will be.

Now watch, Charles has been waiting his whole adult life for this and passes before his coronation. That's a Monty Python skit.

If he does a silly walk during the coronation then I will do a complete 180 on my feelings for their stupid monarchy.

I've only seen one Kardashian video.

Maybe it was two.... I don't know.
