"God Save the King"

What God? Do Kings have to be religious? Specifically protestant Church of England?

I think the days of Elizabeth I versus Mary Stuart should be over by now. Thanks for reminding me of another facet of the ridiculousness of this institution. Still, I'm glad you enjoy.

No doubt you have all missed me, but worry not, I am back from my week-long ban.

I spent the last week locked in the Tower of London, reflecting on my sins. I am sorry for offending you, your majesty.

King Charles to return looted royal regalia to Ghana in loan deal

Gold and silver treasure looted from West Africa by the British army in colonial wars are to be "lent" to Ghana in a three year deal, the British Museum has announced. The precious regalia, which had belonged to the Assante royal court, is regarded as part of the "national soul" of Ghana. Under the deal, 17 objects from the Victoria and Albert Museum, and 15 from the British Museum, will go on show later this year at the Manhyia Palace Museum in Kumasi, the capital of the Assante region. The items have not been seen in Ghana for 150 years. News of the deal came as Greece renewed its call for the Parthenon marbles to be returned to Athens.

Most of the objects involved in the Ghana deal with Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the current Assante king, were looted from Kumasi during the Anglo-Assante wars in the 19th century. Some formed part of an indemnity payment forcibly extracted from from the Assante king at the time. They also include a gold lute harp. Ghana's culture minister, Nana Oforiatta Ayim, welcomed the deal as a "good starting point" in righting the wrongs of the UK's violent colonial past. Speaking to the BBC, which first reported the deal, she said "they are not just objects, they have a spiritual importance as well... they are part of the soul of the nation. It is pieces of ourselves returning."

Tristram Hunt, director of the Victoria and Albert Museum, said the items were the equivalent of Britain's crown jewels.

The former monarch of Denmark, Queen Margrethe II, is related to the late Queen Elizabeth II as third cousins.  Interesting family ties.  Queen Margrethe II is an artist, and one of her paintings is now for sale by auction.   I like it.

Yes, Margrethe has even illustrated an edition of Lord of the Rings, I believe. Wonderful lady.

She was the first Danish monarch to abdicate in 800 years, defying tradition. I wonder if Charles III be so bold? The kings of Belgium, Spain, and queen of the Netherlands, have all stepped down in favour of their eldest child. It’s the new thing. Even Popes are doing it these days. Keep up, Charlie.

Quick question, just for fun.

Without googling, can you name the current King of Belgium?

Spain? Netherlands? Sweden? Norway?

Charles III reportedly has cancer.  Sending positive thoughts to the King.

I needed this thread to puke on. Get a life, I hope they all die in succession.
