I can't believe some people are defending monarchy, but that's alright.
I just can't accept idea that some people are born with power, wealth and privileges
I really don't care if monarchy brings wealth to a country, together we should fight inequality and injustice.
(like how the Royal Family in this country is exempted from taxation and law)
You honestly don't know much about the monarchy do you? I could bring up the countless trials Kings and Queens have been a part of and the punishments they have faced because of it, but I'm not going to waste my time.
Do a google search for Charles I.
I'm talking about my own country here. Sure, kings (or emperors) in France, Russia and G-B faced (capital) punishment. I'm explicitly talking about my own country.

Secondly, inequality and injustice? That is ALL the Queen has fought for the last sixty years... Not to mention William and Harry both serve in the armed forces.
And yes, why should people who are happy with 1000 years of tradition be happy with it and defend it!? That's preposterous!
Can you tell my how being exempted from taxation is equality?
the kings in Saudia-Arabia and Thailand act like tyrants, how is that justice? The monarchy in Europe isn't evil or anything, the fact is that it is unnecessary and can be replaced with a Republic.
The only thing these two people have ever done to deserve fame and airtime on TV is being born. If people care more about that then tornadoes killing people then something is wrong with society.
nothing is wrong with society, it is just psychologically unhealthy to get bad news all the time. You cant just spend ALL DAY talking about disasters, we need good news even if it is just 2 people getting married.
