At least we can take solace in that he still has another 10 years to pay for his TV licence  Cheesy

Just heard some idiot on the BBC News channel say "he can now travel free on buses".
If he had bothered, which I doubt, he could have had an English bus pass 5 years ago.

Re: Officially a pensioner but yet to start his 'real' job.

lol that really is one long apprenticeship.
If you ask me, I think the old biddy is hanging in there trying to block him. She's made it more than clear how she intends to continue 'serving' the country. Talk about self centered lol. Expenses, fame, celebrity, free world travel and no boss... no wonder shes hanging in there lol

I doubt if there is anybody that works harder than the Queen.  Others should follow her example Smiley

She doesn't even wave at people properly, encouraged to wave in the least energy expending way possible to preserve her own life.
She works hard?

Re: Officially a pensioner but yet to start his 'real' job.

Just imagine what would happen if we didn't have a queen/king. We'd have some jumped up politician elected as president and behaving like they were royalty (anyone remember when Maggie got above herself and started doing what can only be described as royal walkabouts?).

Looks like his celebrations are hotting up.
Almost fire apparent

Prince Charles had an heir-raising experience as he celebrated his 65th birthday - after almost going up in FLAMES.
The Prince of Wales was left a little singed when he got too close to a large temple oil burner lit with 65 lamps in his honour which was for sale in an antiques shop in India.
