to think a Royal visit is a great excuse when really you want to watch the World cup!

I don't think I've ever known someone so obsessed by the royal family!

I can't see you getting particularly flamed, it's just a bit boring.

Whatever they want, wherever they want to go...they get it.

Bowlersarm Fri 04-Apr-14 16:26:28

For someone who purports to dislike them, you do like talking about them an awful lot.

Obsessed indeed, Kim.

Bowlersarm Fri 04-Apr-14 16:27:37

You know you won't get flamed, what with all the MN lefties around. You didn't on the last one (did you?). I didn't think you did.

I don't care if his secret reason for going is to see England play. But I'm a shameless Royalist grin

<waves the Royal Standard and sings Rule Britannia>

I didn't know he had relations in Brazil, are they putting him up during his stay? grin

Not flaming (I hope), because it's OK to want to talk about the Royal Family all the time. And there are a lot of Royal obsessives on MN.

But I do think it's a little inconsiderate to put thread after thread in the main boards when there is separate topic. Using the topics makes easy for those who do not share the fascination and endless desire to talk about them to hide the whole damned lot in one go.

Bet he is on a freebie, like you said, dressed up as being an ambassador for Britain dont'cha know.

AuntieStella Fri 04-Apr-14 16:36:56

But as the thread's here - why is it Prince Harry that's going?

Is he representing his brother (who has been President of the FA for 8 or so years now)?

gertiegusset Fri 04-Apr-14 16:37:28

Bah, who ever looks at the other topics, keep it out in the open unlike their lobbying of Parliament for private interests smile

Good timing then, these things aren't planned ages ahead are they.

Account of Prince Harry's previous visit for the FA

Isn't he still in the army? It's amazing how much leave he gets. All in the name of forging good relations with the host country of course.

The Army is really good at arranging the time of those who represent their country internationally. Rob Wainwright for example had a Bosnia tour cancelled so he could captain the Scotland rugby team.
