If the male dog is totally white, you could call him David Duke

Good question!

I have lived in both and was never aware of being in a duchy.

Must be West Sussex. Because I heard he was passed the duchy on the left hand side.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

Wait!

Viewed from the north - where I believe you live - the duchy would be on the right hand side tho surely?

I didn't quite realise that stepping back from their role meant literally resigning from it. Good on them, and a brave step. I have no perspective of them as people, but it's the right decision and one that I would wish every monarch around the world would take.

I do think the press have relied a lot on whipping up the Mrs Simpson resonances. I honestly can’t make my mind up re the rascism claims, but the anti- American AND she’s a woman messages seem pretty clear a la the supposedly malign influence that was Wallace .

It’s very easy for the tabloids etc then to make out that Megan is domineering and is responsible for this disruption of the natural royal order.

So long as the Limey fops stay out of Canada I'm fine. Looks like I'm not getting my wishes in that regard either. Now one way or another it's most assuredly going to cost me tax money.

More bad news for Ginge and Whinge - If Brenda's nixing their use of the name "Sussex Royal" wasn't bad enough, they've now learned their chosen alternative, H&M, is already taken
