The British Royal Family is a reminder of the bloodiest days in human history where blood was spilled to satisfy the Monarchy's lust for power and land. Although the Royals may have served a purpose during the peak of their reign, the morals and values of modern society render the Royal Family irrelevant. The Royal Family continue to enjoy their extravagant lifestyle, even though their access to their immense wealth is entirely due to the ancestry of the current Monarch.

Knowing that the Nations of the Commonwealth (including my home country, Australia) maintain the ruling Monarch is slightly disturbing considering the history of the Royal Family. The Monarchy's former purpose is now obsolete and thus deserves to be treated as any other piece of our history. Therefore, I support the abolition of the Royal Family and the elimination of the system of government that has caused so much pain and suffering in our species history.

The royal family is considered a great factor for patriotism and nationalism in the Uk. If I am honest, I only like the royal family for the coins and seldom art.

Prince philip and others are racist. There is multitude of example of what prince Phillip and princess Anne have said. OUTRAGEOUS! Then again, Prince Phillip is getting old.

I think that queen Elizabeth looks rather friendly imo.

Are you arguing that the royal family is irrelevant or obsolete?

By Royal Family, do you mean like any Royal Family in general or the British Royal Family? I would accept, if only it weren't for the 2k word limit.

Interesting topic. I was watching a video and it had said that the taxes that the people of britain pay for, go towards funding the royal family.
