  1. to the people of the UK, we apologize for having had to send this man. He’s an international embarrassment.

    1. @Rakanishu because by his own admission he’s had a couple strokes. His handlers rushed him out of the room last year when he said it to the press. We’re at sea and no one is at the helm

  2. In order to humiliate Ukraine: It is necessary in Russia to make a total military mobilization (exclusively) of women – from 30 to 45 years old (regardless of faces). Of course – this will make the rest of the world laugh … BUT, the MEN left at home – will be very surprised at the advances of the Russian troops, with the capture of Kyiv! ..
    Russian (worker, anarchist)

  3. Had to stop at “all about service” Self service is what Royalty is all about. Notice the gold plated trim in the background……..It’s time to stop this ridiculousness, it’s 2022, not 1622. The gold off those trim pieces could feed hundreds of homeless people in London. That would be all about service.

    1. @Jack you completely misunderstand the concept that all humans are created equal. What is this medieval king queen commoner bs rofll

  4. Before another storm?

    CHAPTER 1

    A FUNERAL

    So gorgeous was the spectacle on the May morning of 1910 when nine kings rode in the funeral of Edward VII of England that the crowd, waiting in hushed and black-clad awe, could not keep back gasps of admiration. In scarlet and blue and green and purple, three by three the sovereigns rode through the palace gates, with plumed helmets, gold braid, crimson sashes, and jeweled orders flashing in the sun. After them came five heirs apparent, forty more imperial or royal highnesses, seven queens – four dowager and three regnant – and a scattering of special ambassadors from uncrowned countries. Together they represented seventy nations in the greatest assemblage of royalty and rank, ever gathered in one place and, of its kind, the last. The muffled tongue of Big Ben tolled nine by the clock as the cortege left the palace, but on history’s clock it was sunset, and the sun of the old world was setting in a dying blaze of splendor never to be seen again.
    In the center of the front row rode the new king, George V. flanked on his left by the Duke of Connaugbt, the late king’s only surviving brother, and on his right by a person age to whom, acknowledged The Times, “belongs the first place among all the foreign mourners,” who “even when relations are most strained has never lost his popularity amongst us” – William II, Emperor of Germany. Mounted on a gray horse, wearing the scarlet uniform of a British Field Marshal, carrying the baton at that rank, the Kaiser had composed his features behind the famous upturned mustache in an expression “grave even to severity.” Of the several emotions churning his susceptible breast, some hints exist in his letters. “I am proud to call this place my home and to be a member of this royal family,” he wrote home after spending the night in Windsor Castle in the Cormer apartments of his mother.

    Detachments from all the famous regiments, the Coldstreams, the Gordon Highlanders, the household cavalry and cavalry of the line. the Horse Guards and Lancers and Royal Fusiliers, brilliant Hussars and Dragoons of the German, Russian, Austrian, and other foreign cavalry units of which Edward had been honorary officer, admirals of the German Navy – almost, it seemed to some disapproving observers, too great a military show in the funeral of a man called the “Peacemaker”.

  5. I will forever be indebted to you, you’ve changed my life in the best possible way you can i will continue to preach about you for the world to hear you’ve saved me from a huge financial debts with just little investment, thanks so much Mrs Andreia kelvin

    1. I have traded with a lots of individuals and i have also lose a lot of money but i have never come across any one as good as Mrs kelvin and her strategies, i now trade independently, she is the best i’d advise any novice interested in trading to get in touch with her

    2. Don’t let others define what “success” is for you. Get up, learn the necessary skills needed and get after it, I have never heard or seen any of her client complaint of lost. I think she’s just too perfect.

    3. my first experience with her gave me the assurance and confidence that has made me to invest without fear of losing
