Re: New heir to the throne on the way

...Booo....this isn't news, this is crap....

The announcement that our future King and his wife will be giving birth to who will be the King or Queen after him is news, regardless of what your own personal feelings toward the Canadian Monarchy may be.

And Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is 90 years old. If she's anything like her mother, she'll be around for another ten years or so, not 50.

My apologizes....I'm remembering old coins and she looked pretty hot for someone who I guess ascended to the throne when she was in her 40s herself?....Man she looked good back then for being 40!!

I just know she's been the monarch for 50 years...based on the photos alone I figured she was in her 20s when she became Queen and then well I know the Queen "Mum" aka Queen Elizabeth I was I believe 100 or 101 when she passed on...

Yes, you're right, but I'm truly hopeful that by then we will have severed ties with England on a formal basis instead of being tied to them in this democratic system we have.....

Although I doubt it.

Also I'm not to be a naysayer but...she does have to deliver the child...not that I'm saying there will be a miscarriage.....but that's probably why they kept it a secret for as long as they could because those things can be quite tragic and to have it in the media would be heartbreaking should something like this occur...for whatever reason.

She looks great right now for being 86, too.

Her mother made it to 101. Her father would have lived a lot longer if not for smoking-related lung cancer and the stresses of a wartime throne that he didn't want to begin with. Elizabeth is in better health than her mother was at that age. She's going to be around for a while yet.

Yes, definitely. They're closing a local mine in town (Frood Mine) and she had visited it back in the mid 50s when she came to Canada and there was a photo in the local newspaper showing her down in the mine looking at the goings on and whatnot and she just looked really really good then, and yeah I didn't realize she was 86, she's like Dick Clark before the stroke, keeps on truckin, and good for her...

She's the only monarchy I'd say the majority if not all of us here have ever really "known" of. There may be some older peoples here but they would have been little kids when the Queen was installed....sometimes I forget that 1952 was 60 years ago now....that's why my math was messed up...

But yes, hope for the best for perhaps the future queen/king of england.
