/ Schrödinger's Cake

GravitySucks 09 Jan 2020

Are we sitting comfortably ? then I'll begin. In a land (not very) far far away there lived a young prince and his newly wedded princess bride. One day, tired of their arduous ribbon cutting duties and endless royal variety shows, they got to pondering the age old conundrum of 'Schrödinger's Cake', was it possible to 'still have their cake whilst having patently already eaten it ? perhaps moving the cake (in a box) to a the mythical Shangri La of Neverland just accross the shinning sea would allow the royal cake to regenerate without incurring those pesky blisters from the ribbon cutting scissors and chapped lips from kissing all those plebian offspring.

So despite having their many palaces freshly refurbed in precious metals and jewells, they 'up-sticked' and relocated to the land of milk and honey where they could live quietly as 'mega celebrities' whilst still having the old cake shipped in from the old country where the dutiful proles toiled all hours in the royal bakery to ensure a plentiful supply.

So long (suckers) and thanks for all the cake!

And they all lived happy ever after.

Until the prince wakes up one day and realises his princess is as mad as a box of frogs. She exits and finds love with owners of yachts, shops and mansions full of cake. Prince uses his royal connections and she sadly dies of a cake over dose. Their offspring are forced to walk behind their mother's coffin on national tv, mentally disturbing them for life. The cycle continues.

  The Dairymaid

  Like marmalade

 The Dairymaid
 Said, "Fancy!"
 And went to
 Her Majesty.
 She curtsied to the Queen, and
 She turned a little red:
 "Excuse me,
 Your Majesty,
 For taking of
 The liberty,
 But marmalade is tasty, if
 It's very
 Thickly
 Spread."
 The Queen said
"Oh!:

 Many people
 Think that
 Marmalade
 Is nicer.
 Would you like to try a little

 Said, "There, there!"

 The cow said, "There, there!
 I didn't really
 Mean it;
 Here's milk for his porringer,
 And butter for his bread."
 The Queen took
 The butter
 And brought it to
 His Majesty;
 The King said,
 "Butter, eh?"
 And bounced out of bed.
 "Nobody," he said,
 As he kissed her
 Tenderly,
 "Nobody," he said,
 As he slid down the banisters,
 "Nobody,

I do like a little bit of butter to my bread

What an unpleasant bunch you lot are. 

Regardless of your views on the royals the lad has put himself up for service, quite literally in the line of fire, which is more than many on here. He haS then gone on to do huge amounts in the name of disabled sports and other causes.

He had no choice in his birth  circumstances and has a right, like  it or not, to have a little dignity and not to have to suffer, along with his wife, the barrage of shit and racism that they have received.

There are many royals who deserve your criticism. Harry isnt one of them. Get some humility FFS.

In other news - couple with young child decide to change jobs and lifestyle, relocate, and try become more financially independent (as their current setup is making them miserable and damaging their family life).

Why does anyone feel they have any right to tell them otherwise?

Oh yeah, the 'royal' thing. Well, Harry didn't choose that for himself.

And the main limitation on them becoming financially independent is security they wouldn't even need if it wasn't for him being a royal.

Good luck to them. Personally, I'd wind up the whole Monarchy nonsense, but since that isn't on the cards, what else are they supposed to do if it's all too much for them to cope with?

Even if you had to defend your, and your family's, home and travel arrangements at all times from people interested in kidnapping and worse - at the same time as, whether or not you like it, having a huge public profile with media and others following your every move, and being expected to meet a number of obligations due to the status of the rest of your family?

They really don't have the option of just getting a nice 4 bedroom semi-detached house in the commuter belt and travelling to work by bus or by driving their trusty Skoda Octavia.

Also, I think that £29M his "net worth", not money he actually has - never mind actual income he can use for the above.

All the same, I don't imagine financial worries are likely to end up being a huge problem for them, no.

I'm not a big fan of royalty as an institution, or "celebrity culture" in general, but...

They're two young people who seem like they're in love and happy together and are trying to find a way to live the only lives they're going to get. They didn't choose their (separate) backgrounds or they way they're being treated now, and (unlike some other members of their extended family) I don't see what they've done to deserve it. The meanness and lack of kindness being shown to them saddens me - although it doesn't particularly surprise me any more.

I think the Daily Mail, Express etc., much preferred him when he still thought it was funny to dress up as a Nazi.

I nicked that gag from the Daily Mash, they seem to be giving the story a lot of coverage too.  There's more than a grain of truth in this one, and it's more sympathetic to his point of view than you might expect..

I’m not a royalist by any means but the constitutional monarchy, refined as it is into an office which does nothing at all, is a good bulwark against either dictatorship or a four/five yearly nightmares of election of head of state/president/chancellor or whatever. Possibly the least worst option. However, sixth in line for the throne isn’t a persuasive title to millions of public money and social privilege, hence the unpopularity of the royal hangers-on. I’d love to see all adult royals outside the immediate succession have to earn their corn like everyone else.

Meanwhile Harry & Megan will no doubt be working Brand Royal to their own advantage in the US or Canada, only stepping back from the bits of the job they don’t fancy. Only thing is, they’ve just generated another votes of press interest around themselves, one that it’s difficult to see diminishing anytime soon.

Erm yes, and he is doing just that.  He has said he is shunning, as the OP said, the ribbon cutting and all that nonsense to get involved with things which are self sustaining and self funding.  

Isn't he doing exactly what you are requesting him to do?

Hang on, are you saying that someone who who has no choice in their birth should be ridiculed for that chance event?  Any other you want to add to that.  His birth circumstances is not his fault and he cant dissolve the monarchy.

> I would respect him if he said that the whole concept of is royalty so idiotic that he would have nothing to do with this whole charade anymore, and also gave back that nice pile that he was given due to his royal status, plus any income generated purely through is titles.

That nice pile probably doesnt belong to him and probably belongs to the crown, and therefore us, and he is living there in trust.  Re: the charade thing.  Isn't that exactly what he is doing, shunning the whole charade.  So much so that he broke protocol and made his own statement with no knowledge of the senior royals.

He wants to go and make it alone with his young bride, and the mother of his offspring, without the stare of the horrendous tabloids and racism.  He wants to be self sufficient as best he can, perhaps using his celebrity to do good, make a difference, or have the temerity to make a living.  He cant help who he is and they may need some security to stop people trying to cause him and family harm.  Would you rather he was left to the mercy of the crackpots and terrorists?

> This is indeed cakeism of the highest order.

So, do you want him to do nothing and simply disappear into the background, collecting royal payments for nothing?  Or would you rather he tries to make it alone, with a little dignity, without the shite British press following him.  

You do remember his mother, don't you?

In reply to TheDrunkenBakers:

If he shuns that they have to drop their titles, drop the claim to the throne, drop the security (as an ex member of the royal family shouldn't be a problem if they are kidnapped - 'business' can be mercenary that way'.) and run off to North America to make their own way in life (no fancy charity foundations unless they put the money in themselves either.)

He may not have chosen it but many people don't choose the life they are born into. He should have behaved with some dignity and if he had done so he could have had a relatively quiet life like Prince Edward.

Instead he has been brainwashed by his fame hungry wife who didn't believe everything she had heard about the royal family would apply to her, and now has her knickers in a twist whilst throwing tantrums that they have to leave the country.

Idiots both of them. I don't wish them the best of luck.

TheDrunkenBakers 09 Jan 2020
In reply to TheThread, and the other bollocks one:

To be clear, a young lad - and ex serviceman - and his young wife and child who love each other want to be self sufficient and make a living without tabloid harassment and racism.  He also lives in the daily knowledge (because he cant avoid it) that his mother died due to media harassment and that his father didnt really help matters by having an affair and is known to have not really loved his dead mother and that his wider family  disapproved of his mother.

He cant help who he is but needs more security than most and happens to have a granny as a queen.

He then decides he wants a quieter, more normal life and he gets criticised for it because UKC wants its 'republic'.

Shameful.

(in fact nothing special with any of that).

He has a responsibility to behave in a certain way due to being in a position of great privilege. If he shirks that responsibility he can expect to be castigated for it. His 'family' are the head of the state and members are not expected run off abroad because their wives don't like living here.

Other than he's a prince and therefore was a special target whilst on a tour, oh and a prince, did I mention that.  So all of the above are under immense scrutiny and that his dead mother is still one of the most famous people on the planet decades after her death.  Dont forget that his family were probably not that bothered about it which is pretty well known.

Do you have any heart?

So he cant win here.  He either stays being a royal and sponging off the state whilst opening shops and launching boats or he decides he's had enough and wants to make it alone and become less visible.  Which do you want? 

He has no responsibility to anyone other than his wife and child and their safely and mental health.  

The rest is blah blah blah.  You sound bitter.  Are you a bit jealous because you weren't born a prince?

I thought his mother died because her driver drank too much and then drove through a tunnel much too fast and lost control of the car and crashed? I suggest you should not blame the media who were following the car  - it was up to her driver to drive her safely

OMG. What bit don't you get. He does have a responsibility. People have a responsibility to their families (beyond their wife/husband & kids.) As per the first I don't 'want' anything but as I am British I have a vested interest in my head of state and he is behaving like a tw*t.  If he really wanted to become less visible it might have some credibility but he (well, they actually) don't (drop the website, drop the PR, drop the titles etc and it may have some veneer of sincerity) , they just don't want the responsibilities  they currently have.

If they want to be self sufficient than they should give up their privileges, to the last penny. Until they do so they are essentially guilty of benefits fraud on a scale that would see anyone else jailed for a long time.

Ok. Replace young with new if it suits you better.  They are a newly married couple and are new parents which should be a special time.

Im no royalist but I feel for them. I have some sympathy and empathy.

Plus, they are younger than me. So they are young, sort of.

It doesn't get one anywhere, to fulminate and to not do anything else...

I'll always remember him talking about how welcome the privacy and 'mental space' was while serving in Afghanistan, in being away from prying cameras and journalists, he didn't put it exactly like that, but that was the gist. If that was the most effective way he'd found up to then of escaping from the press, I don't blame him in wanting to get away.

Well actually the main reason she died was because the silly woman wasn't wearing her seat belt.

1 wearing seatbelt, survived.

Several factors of course. No press following, lower speed, probably no crash. No drunk driver, better car control, maybe no crash.

Crash causes injuries, but no seatbelt increased severity to death.

Because the press loved her, they never came out with the "irresponsible, thoughtless mother dies in car crash because she couldn't be bothered to put her seatbelt on; leaving two young children behind" type story.
