Now and forever
 a bloodline branch of among the oldest, most powerful Western world-wide empires will be, in part, African. That's worth quite a bit, a royal family opting to disassemble in a day some ages-old rigid and toxic stratification.

(And, please:  it's hardly as if the $42M some on the congenitally-dour far Left whine about were thieved from their own pet projects.)

Excellent week ahead!

Chances are the 42 million is a "bare bones" budget for the wedding of this socially conscious couple.

The affair may well have cost 3 times as much....(The whacky protocol is that it could not have cost more than the wedding of the heir apparent.)

Some of the money went to that gospel  choir....

Just getting them there and providing appropriate accommodations would have been enough to crush the,wedding budget of the average black family in the US...

In addition some of the estimated cost includes the "estimated value" of certain amenities which were available to the couple "on the house/free of charge".....

In the US the tradition is the cost of the wedding is borne by the father of the bride....

Given that the Queen wouldn't think of having her grandson marry on a commoners resources and that Meghan is, indeed, African American, think of the 42 million as an installment on reparations....

Sometimes, it's good to be the Queen and in possession of more money than you can count....

Whether or not a reparations installment, this is significant.

...and there's little doubt that the royal family do not regard this as a reparation.

My sense is this is a genuine love affair.  Of course I could be wrong. In any case it’s perfectly solid positive PR directed at the growing nonwhite Brit population. The aristocracy can’t be all bad if they’re willing to bring into the fold, a nonwhite.   And there’s something to be said for modernizing and outreach. The queens are smart cookies.   They’ve maintained and advanced the monarchy for hundreds of years byknowing when to be rigid and proper and when to break tradition and shock the children. I love the little queen .....I should write about the one sided abiding relationship I have had w the queen since her coronation.  but I think she’s the last of it.  Actually I hope.  I would hate to see the crown further modernized and bastardized and turned into a living reality show, which is the direction it appears to be going in.

PS.  I think the queen would choke if anyone suggested this had anything to do with reparations.

In the US, sure. However, I really, really doubt Diana’s parents picked up the tab on her wedding to Charles. I can picture it. “The Coldstream Guards are HOW much?? Could we use fewer of them? And how much are the musicians? Are you fucking kidding me?”

I think it is well and good if the African Diaspora, and some white people, regard this as reparative. I agree w you, however. it's next-to-impossible to imagine that the royal family does....unless and until there is evidence that it does.

If reparations were to be paid, and I doubt that day will ever come, no one will be permitted to speak of the "transaction"as reparations....

The euphemisms and platitudes will flow like the waters of a mighty stream.....

BTW the "reparations" comment was made with tongue planted firmly in cheek. ...Even if it was a bit "cheeky" for me to bring it up at this moment...
