Camilla and Charles - O Canada

Camilla and Charles - O Canada

Postby Barney Google » Apr 18th, 2017, 7:49 am

Apparently Charles and Camilla are coming to be part of our Nation's celebrations this summer.

I am not amused...

Camilla is a royal wannabe and Charles is a boob.

If we have to have 'The Royals' here, send Harry...he's way more fun!

Prince Harry will be here early this Fall for something that I have no problem with at all, that is Invictus Games in Toronto.
This is something I fully support & worth a visit by a Royal.

I`m not a fan of the whole Royal thing but it`s what we got so we have to protect them, hell we spent about $100k on the Trump brothers doing private business in Vancouver.

I think they should be welcome. If it wasn't for England we would be part of the USA. Of course, tradition has no part in "modern" Canada.

In my books, Camilla and Charles are welcome to come here any day...just don't think Canada should be paying for

them while they are here.

I'm looking forward to Harry coming to Canada...he's a 'fun' Royal!

I have absolutely no problem if they visit, just as long as it's on their dime and not the Canadian taxpayers.

"

From what I have read, if a country invites them, then it is up to the host country to pay. The invitation for them to visit and be part of the celebrations came from the Canadian Government.

Time to do away with the royals. If the UK want's to keep them, that's fine, but I have absolutely no use for them, none at all.
Bunch of inbred whack jobs.

I (we) are hoping mom will outlast him and we can move on to William and Kate. We prefer them over Charley and his tag along any day, especially if we have to foot the bill.

I would shave my head with a cheese grater, before making an effort to see either of these two duds.

I do admire several of the younger generation of Royals -- at least three of them have joined the military, and gone in harm's way for Queen and country. And William pilots a medivac rescue helicopter. Very commendable people.

Charles has been a 'silly twit' (like a character from 'Black Adder') his entire life.
