How long will Queen Elizabeth II stay in throne

Post by SitangCampus » Sat May 11, 2019 4:03 am

Her son, the prince has become a lord with a bald head, and can take public bus and subway in China without paying fees because he has reached the senior age that deserves the social benefit, but he has not yet got a decent job in his 70s. China's Emperor Qianlong in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), seeing himself a head of state for sixty years, retired actively and gave the throne to his own son. Today's Japanese emperor followed the suit of this Chinese king. So he could enjoy himself more and teach his son how to govern the empire properly. In today's words, it means how to achieve sustainable development of the kingdom. So I think the UK Queen in this case is too much selfish.

Her grandsons, one being bald and the other marying a black woman who is now in her second marriage, are both the opposite of the tradition.

Prince is the image of a handsome boy that rides on a white horse going to marry Cinderella or Snow White, not such an oldie or unconventional.

In the UK the head of state remains in that position until death, unless beguiled by an American divorcee or decapitated by British commoners. The position of head of state is not a toy for Her Majesty to dispose of as she will. And it is certainly not a question of selfishness on her part. Other countries may do things differently and that is up to them. Some, I believe, may no longer even have an emperor or king.

It is nevertheless touching to see the boundless concern that other nations have concerning the British monarchy.
