She was 18, and she was the one who agitated for it when she came of age in April of 1944. She was commissioned as an honorary second subaltern in the ATS and began training in March of 1945.
Harry’s already got millions that he inheireted from Diana. as long as they invest and spend wisely they’re set for life, and with any luck Archie will grow up to have a real job.
Not to be cynical, but so far it looks like their idea of “modernising the monarchy” (and leaving when it refused to be modernised) is that they should keep the fun bits (grace-and-favour homes paid for by the taxpayer, security, access to royal estate income, travel to tropical bits of the commonwealth, and making… Read more
It also seems to me that, in the context of modern royals, the Monegasque royals seem to have it well. Small principality; the whiff of traditional and Hollywood glamour (via Grace Kelly); and enormous latitude to live their lives, pursue their careers (or ‘careers’, as it were), and even have children out of wedlock. … Read more
Well, I’m at my parent’s house for Christmas. So far, I have been body shamed, verbally abused for explaining I would be away Xmas eve to attend my partner’s family’s Christmas party (and pick Mr RU up from the airport first), had to find a way to make a bed, and had to be incredibly grateful for being allowed to stay… Read more
Season 2 was mostly tasteless “filler”, wandering away from the book and the actual point of the book. Just... plotless filler ,to keep the viewers hanging on hoping for something to happen. Like Season 4 of Mr Robot, a lot of running around, tension over nothing much, and a cliffhanger every episode ending, but… Read more
I will probably order just an appetizer tomorrow with a big group because I think it's the only gluten free thing, and it's less awkward than not eating. Just ask them to bring it as a meal (like at the same time).
This is good Kinja
Ah man, I can only imagine it’s just a case of being misunderstood or targeted to the wrong audience. For example, if you wanted the book, or any real plot at all, you’ll be disappointed. It’s thread bare and barely moving. But as a self-contained show and a piece of entertainment, some parts of this second season are… Read more
It was extremely meandering, so I’ll admit plot progression and meaning was largely nonexistent. But besides that, taking each episode as it was on its own, some of this season was pure art, true art. It was phenomenal. I’m sad that, if we even get that in the future, we now have this caveat. That a show with black… Read more
Well, guess I’m done with this show now.
I’m sure his mother who has a place in Yad Vashem would not be impressed by this sweeping statement of Philip’s heritage. Philip himself fought against the Nazis.
Philip does not come from Nazis. Some of his sisters married Nazis. His mother and at least one sister were heavily involved in resistance work, and he was commended for bravery for his actions in the Royal Navy during WWII.
The trailer put me right off. So much voiceover telling me it was going to be a classic smacked instead of desperation. Also didn’t like the use of the Cloud Atlas soundtrack (don’t know if that was just for the trailer or the whole film) as that felt like cheapskatery. And the monster looks too much like Groot, no… Read more
I’m not looking forward to a year where we look back on 2016 with fond nostalgia, that’s for certain.
