The Windsors (3 lines)

The real thing is even more interesting, as in the courtship and purposeful manipulation of Elizabeth for marriage beginning at only 13 years of age.   Greece's Prince Philip maneuvered into position with help from his uncle Louis Mountbatten, and a battle ensued to keep the House of Tudor name.

 

"Mountbatten" was in fact an anglicised "Battenberg".

And Windsor is a complete invention: her grandfather's name was in fact "Saxo-Cobourg" - utterly changed, like Ontario's Kitchener.

BTW, I once visited the small place in Cobourg, Germany where Victoria went on holiday. The guide told me that Margaret and Andrew had visited - Elizabeth, not. It reminded me of Yalta. Versailles splendour? Not at all. The vacation, private life of European royalty in the late 19th century is comparable to wealthy Ontario cottage - barely Newport, RI.

In Newport, rich Americans understood that a summer place was to invite. Not impress. Years before, Frederick the Great sort-of did that at Sans Souci.

"Tudor"? "Henry VII"? He was a gangster. Like Joseph P. Kennedy, he created a dynasty.

The name "Tudor" is a fraud, like Bernie Madoff. But so-called Henry VII created the name Tudor, Joseph P created the name Kennedy and Bernie created the name NASDAQ.

The future will decide whose ego will live longest.

The whole Prince Philip fiasco was repeated with Princess Diana.

Damn royals are a very exclusive club !

I like how The Windsors portrays the minor royals, like Beatrice & Eugene, the daughers of Andrew & Fergie. Wow, I hope they aren't like that in real life.

God knows how this TV series will deal with this new addition (Red haired prince & Markle) to the British royal family.

To those monarchist defenders of "tradition", I ask: do you realize how "British Royalty" has become "Kardashian"?

I prefer sustainable States.
