Royal Rumblings

As you may well have heard, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen to name their recent addition Louis Arthur Charles. This is of course their third child now, and he is still a long way off sitting on the throne.

And many newspapers and TV channels are getting themselves into something of a frenzy, delivering round-the-clock reports on every little bit of information they can get their hands on. It really does feel like a new Messiah has been born!

The British Royal Family has always divided opinion – there are those that argue they are part of tradition and good for tourism, while others believe an unelected figure should not be head of state in a democratic nation. But one thing is fore sure, news of the birth has certainly ruffled feathers and got people talking.

What are your opinions on royal families? Is there still a place for them in this modern era? We’d love to hear your thoughts.
