Confirmed as King Charles the 3rd, if he does half as well as his mother he will have done well.
Let's be honest: kings and queens don't do much these days. It's all down to the hundreds of selfish twats in parliament and the corporations that influence them.

With that said, R.I.P the Queen. She lived a very respectable age.

I look at her a different way. She was Queen of England and the commonwealth of the United Kingdom for 70 years and was very active for most of it. She was monarch for longer than any other in history and she was well loved and respected for all of it, deservingly so. She was the most powerful woman in the world and never once let it go to her head. She was the high standard everyone admired and most wanted to emulate. This world, not just England, was better place because she was in it.
Have to correct that, didn't beat the Sun King in the length of reign. But being the second isn't bad at all. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_longest-reigning_monarchs

Dorset where else eh? >>> Thats ENGLAND<<<
don't forget Louis xiv and France were ruled by a Regent (because of his age) untill 1651 when he Reached the Age of majority.
So he only ruled by himself from 1651 to 1715 thats a sum total of 64 years.

I'm British and so from my point of view ER2 Ruled for 70 years ( no Regent ) and this Eclipse's louis xiv 64 years of Rule ( non Regent

PS A Regent rules on behalf of a Sovereign

Oh, then you were totally correct, she won Victoria with a good amount with her reign's length.

How can even the King not issue a firm statement on the most meaningful bank holiday in 70 years and "let employers decide"? This is ridiculous! :banghead:

Hi UK club, I have a question. Below is an image of a bug I am trying to identify from south-west England region, any thoughts on what it might be?

Because the Monarchy doesn't actually have the authority to declare legal holiday's. Remember, Constitutional Monarchy means that the throne doesn't have any actual governmental powers. Anything the Royal family owns? Sure, but that's not the whole of England. However, it seems certain that 99% of England and the UK will follow suit out of respect and remembrance..

I know, I just wish they did.

I miss a world where things mean what they actually are and aren't only there for show. A world where royal power isn't passed down to government, then governmental power isn't passed down to corporations whose sole interest is making money. A world with no fake democracy where politicians only represent corporate interest. I'd rather be ruled by a handful of strong and respectable individuals than hundreds of selfish idiots who only do what they're told to do by corporate leaders. Voting on them doesn't change a thing, either, as they're either all the same, or get corrupted as soon as they taste power. I miss a world where power also meant responsibility.

Sorry for the rant.

Make no mistake, the British Royal family might not have any direct government control, but they still own enough of the land, assets and money to be a very powerful and serious influence on the British government and economy. Put another way, just because they have no direct powers does not mean they have no power at all. Anyone who thinks otherwise is fooling themselves.

EDIT;
BTW, for those who might have missed it, this happened.

Hearing "His Majesty King Charles" is just strange... perhaps a tad weird... dare I say it, even a bit bizarre... There are 3 whole adult generations of people alive that never knew a world without "Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II". Now this... It's going to take some time, a long while perhaps, to get used to this..

By that time, we'll probably be crowning the new monarch. King Charles isn't extremely young, either. Most people retire when he's just starting his reign.

yeah IMO the Queen made a mistake as did Charles, by not just signing an order to hand over the reign to William on the Queen's passing.

There is something about long reigns that people really love and rally around, and William is popular with the people.

I would not disagree with that. Many believe William will make an excellent King. Not everyone agrees that now would be the right time. Then again, Queen Elizabeth was about his age when she took the throne.

Now if they can do this, then why couldn't they do the same thing with new GPU launches and PS5's. A moratorium of 6 months on the sales or something. That's the only way shortages are ever going to get solved.

That is very interesting theory. I honestly wonder if it would work?

It would only work if Amazon and other major retailers, maybe the top 3-4 all agreed to ban third party sellers at the same time that Ebay imposed the moratorium on whatever product was being launched at the time, but since we are a failed species, that level of co-operation will never take place. So, no I was just dreaming. Back to drinking my Swedish pear cider on ice.
