Why should I leave my country? Why can't they go back to Germany? OK, I accept Prince Harry doesn't have German roots, but the others do.

... exactly what chatman said. :)
Heritage ... includes slavery, fox hunting, serfs, sexual discrimination, racism, and lots of other things we have got rid of (or are trying to). Let's bring the UK into the 21st century by getting rid of the monarchy.
I assume you are wanting to get rid of every person in the country whose forefathers come from a foreign land? Is that not racism? Because that is what you are implying!
You mention bringing the UK into the 21st century, I think it’s you both woke up and realised that we are here. This is the 21st century, this is how it is, get on with it. Without the Monarchy you would have far less tourism which is the largest trade in this country, without that unemployment would certainly increase. Tourism is worth £127 billion a year, most of that attributed to the Monarchy and it costs us £31 million. In comparison, France spend £90 million on their president. How many people travel the globe to visit him?? And France’s unemployment level is far greater than ours!!!
Michael C Feltham, Andy Reeves, ShirleyM and Chatman. You all seem to have the same views with regards to the Monarchy. The way I see it, some of the things you are saying would be regarded as treason. If you don't like, leave the country and move to a state such as France, Italy or Greece and see how better theirs lives and Government's are. You should be proud of your heritage. Have you not got parents and grandparents that fought in a war for the good of our country, serving the Monarchy. How many soldiers would be willing to serve an ever changing government????? And what on earth has the miners strike got to do with the Monarchy???
