The sad BBC have been wetting their pants over this pathetic story . While the NHS can hardly cope with Government led lack of funding , the media expect us all to pander to these privileged toffs . It makes me puke . I doubt if this woman's stay in hospital was of the same standard as mine .
I would withdraw the taxpayers money from the lot of them and let then earn their living like the rest of us.

What a sad country it is when doctors are coming on the radio telling us about the poor woman while funding for cancer care , childens care and care for the elderly is being cut to the bone . We are getting a constant diet on the pathetic womans morning sickness , and not a word of the true suffering of people who really are ill, and wont get the care and drugs they need , while hoards of doctors and nurses pander to this womans every need . Its disgusting

we have had complaints before about bashing the royals from the
servicemen who look at and post on this site.
I respect the servicemen and the dangerous job they do and know that they swear allegiance to the crown BUT their budget is also being cut and whilst all of us suffer it appears that footballers and the royals get a lot more money !

I have said before but it is worth repeating. Our Monarchy costs a far smaller proportion of GDP than most Presidencies. Being removed from the cut and thrust of political infighting, anything daft done by the royals doesn't affect the country.
There are also arguments about the Crown Lands given to the country in payment for the Civil list, which earn more than is being paid out. We are generally well served by a Monarchy, which protects us from the scourge of Republicanism.
