well if they want to be "royalty" they are not normal people any more - just like the Queen isnt; you dont see her hobknobbing with Elton John or paedos? If they want to behave like movie stars or celebs then give up their "royal" titles and stop being supported or getting any cash from the state?
I agree that the Queen sets a fine example. :chapeau:
But as for "normal people" ... well, I did specifically write "human being". You can't turn off human instincts just by labelling someone "royal". Or "not normal" !
