    To be fair, the royal family brings in a lot of revenue from tourism, merchandising and so on.

      +jabberw0k For stadium indeed no. But for monarchies there's a highly profitable sector of memorabilia and this kind of bullshit that employs people. It's true that our palaces in France draws a lot of people but grand events like that probably increases profitability. I think at least. But as John Oliver would say, it's not because something feels true that it is true haha

      That's the same argument used for sports stadiums in cities across the US. The question is, is that revenue benefiting the public at large? (As to the wedding, I genuinely don't know, but with stadiums the answer is often no.)

      The palace of Versailles by itself draws more tourists annually than all UK palaces combined...
      Given that the French monarchy ceased to exist 219 years ago I think its fair to conclude that the Royals themselves are not actually required to draw in a crowd... In short no... the Royals do not bring in much revenue... they do however cost a great deal to maintain...

      as a tourist, to me, you can replace the royalty with some random brit and we won't even notice the difference

    I suppose that royal wedding may be quite a profit for the british economy, i mean it's a world scale event and maybe brits generate income from it starting with selling broadcast rights, attracting tourists and world attantion (advertisers are willing to buy a bit of such global attantion - youtube, tv, other platforms). I have no facts, iam just guessing that a proper reaserch might give us an unexpected conclusion.

    Dissolve the monarchy. Descendants of thugs who slaughtered, raped, plundered, royals deserve contempt, ridicule, and should be laughed out of town. Their ill-gotten wealth must be returned to the public treasury.

    WHY are british so obsessed with foreigners getting benefits? I was in England for a couple of years and neither me, nor any other "foreigner" i knew claimed or received any benefits. I had to work and pay for everything, i was even denied opening a bank account. The ones who are truly preocupied about getting benefits are the british themselves. Also, the vast majority of beggars and petty thieves in this shithole of a country are 100% white british. F**king propaganda.

    A funny and unserious bit. The last time the Brits deposed a monarch, they ended up with Oliver Cromwell, a "roundhead" who eschewed fun for complete piety. In fact, the Lord Protector, was more autocratic than Charles I. After Cromwell's death, they couldn't wait to destroy the Monarchy but since they had cut off Charles the First's head, they had to settle for Charles II. At this point, I don't think that they would want to tempt fate:).

      +MegaHariboboy By influence I meant the overall financial, political and military power. If the UK royals disappeared tomorrow, it will not change the world. The Saudi royals use their unrivaled power and influence to not only oppress their own citizens but bully other nations into submission.

    • MegaHariboboy

      +Munawar Khan Influential in terms of the ability to make money for the country. The Saudi royal family are effectively tyrants over their people. They don't bring in nearly as much tourist revenue and are not popular around the world unlike the UK royal family.

      "Why we care so much about wedding" - most of us don't care at all.
      Those that do can generally be written off as flag waving morons.

      AKA= typical british person. I actually give her credit for being honest, most british are too hypocritical to admit hating foreigners. The UK is by definition a country consisting of thick inbred racists. Close behind them are their americans cousins....i guess the apple really doesn`t fall far from the tree !
