Sorry Guys but I've always like Harry.  :check:

Me too - I met him once and photographed him. Lovely lad :)

i think Charles behaved worse than any of them, and i for one would be happy if William gets the crown...

Prince Charles will inherit the Crown, after him Prince William then Prince George, Princess Charlotte Prince Louis and so on

There was a  time when I was really against Camilla because I liked Diana. She was certainly no saint but she was gulled into a marriage with a man who already had a long standing mistress.

If Charles had married Camilla years ago when they first met things would have gone very differently. She is obviously the right sort of wife for him and does not try to compete or outshine him in the way Diana did. I would not have any objection to her becoming queen.

the previous Prince of Wales was never crowned as he decided to marry a divorcee [as Charles has done, knowing full well he was not allowed to marry either a divorcee nor a Catholic, and he has done both] so i would be quite happy for the throne to pass to William [who might be required to also change his name as the queens father did... the last King William caused a big split in his kingdom i believe, the oft sung about King Billy]...

William IV? Don't remember a split, although he was notorious for a large number of illegitimate children. 1830-1837 means he would have been on the throne for the Great Reform Act of 1832. Succeeded, of course, by Victoria. You don't mean William III, do you of the troubled times, Battle of the Boyne, Jacobite problems and all that jazz

The two titles intrigued me - hadn't realised that before. Dug - the only previous King William of Scotland was William of the house of Dunkeld, 1165-1214. England's William II was William Rufus 1056-1100,  but at the time Scotland was a separate kingdom, hence WIII and WII for William of Orange

And I always thought it a PR gaff that the liner QE2, built on the Clyde, was so named, when HM was actually the first Elizabeth for Scotland. I, and others, thought Elizabeth of Britain would have been much more suitable
