I thought Queen Elizabeth was trying to do what Great-Granny couldn’t: outlive her idiot son. Turns out she doesn’t have to.

ETA: Looks like she can’t do it after all. The United Kingdom is still faced with the prospect of a Royal Homeopath.

So instead of the guy who has reasonably good taste in everything except women, we're forced to have the offspring of his revolting first wife, named after the Pope's agent who harrowed the North (and wiped out the aristocracy of England)? Great.

Given the source of this report I suspect that large doses of salt are to be recommended...........

But what would I know? I'm that rarest of flowers an English republican!

Yup, nobody else is reporting it, and the press would have gone wild.

Quite!

It would require an act of parliament to do this sort of thing anyway- a result of all that stuff about James VII & II and William of Orange!

Not something I've seen from a reliable source, and unlikely anyway.

Your link takes me to a generic yahoo page, as in "what yahoo designed this crap?"

Ah, well, I don't actually care about royal succession.
