VOTE: Should royals express political opinions?

    To answer the question posed in the caption - absolutely not and neither should Governors General.

    It's not really a political issue. It's more social. Much like mental health which both boys have been very vocal about. metoo only becomes political when a politician makes it so and uses it to garner votes from feminist groups. Markle said absolutely nothing wrong and did not politicize it in any way. However when it comes to strictly political issues, they do need to steer clear. They have to appear to be non-biased.

    In front of the media they should just smile and do the royal wave and say nothing at all.

    I will not "vote" on this. This is not news. It's just more of Yahoo's yellow journalism.

    Me too is not political, it's social. And I'm all for someone (anyone) speaking out against "abuse of power" of any kind.

    I think society should know .....needs to know .....what these people's opinion actually is. -------------------------------------------------- The queen is from a generation that has been out-of-date for decades. She has survived her popularity by being very quiet about her opinions .....and those in her immediate circle, are very well chosen, and probably very well compensated to keep her opinions a very well-guarded secret. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I doubt anyone really knows the queen's opinion ......and by today's standards NOT a good thing. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Today's group, is a golden spoon group, with NO EXPERIENCE .... and specifically, likely, VERY LITTLE KNOWLEDGE OF THE PAST .... HISTORY. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Today's society is also very ignorant of the past. Today's society knows nothing of hardship and world wars. They now experience cowardly terrorism in their own streets. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ The world has changed. There is no place for today's "royals". The queen is NOT going to step down for anyone. The only way for her to be removed is when she dies. Once the queen is gone, the current-generation british will have a different attitude towards the remaining "royals". There is absolutely no need or requirement for this family to continue with the past traditions. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- All the royal family structures should be put into British government ownership and transitioned to museums and/or tourist attractions. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The remaining royals can be given/bequeathed some family housing .....and that will be the end of the monarchy different than any other country on the planet. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Kings and Queens have no place on this planet anymore.
