    Yes Virginia, we are that stupid. The media is only a mirror on society. This too shall pass. Maybe...

    Forrest was smart compared to Drumpf.

    In my country (Australia) the monarchy provides a constitutional safeguard that few others have, that is, the army owes its allegiance to the Queen who resides in another country. The Prime minister cannot force the army into acts of violence against the people if the Queen opposes it. I know this failed in Fiji, but that was a military takeover sparked by overt racism toward the native population evinced by a government with a foreign born majority.

    just an FYI... as you are not a british citizen you are not assumed or required to follow royal protocol.

    in my career ive had a good deal of interaction with royals....and they are not all that stuffy. Ive called them all by their first names and familiar nick names. Not once was i ever required to use formal titles.
    Even Americans get briefed on royal protocol if interacting with members of that family:

    I think Ms. Dench is very talented. But I'll be damned if I call her "Dame."

    and... poor michelle made a huge breach in protocol, she should have know better.

    while i feel that michelle was being herself giving a heart felt warm embrace for a photograph... she should have still know better. The queen will be polite to the offender regardless.

    lol. No one expects you to either. Though i doubt you will be in any position to not say it to her.
