I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeee your comments, and I am still watching 😉.
Some of the things I see surprise me a bit. Like how dumb the queen is, or how mean her husband seems to be. On the other hand living the life of a royal must be hellish. Some cope better than others. Sometimes I even feel sorry for them. Sometimes I can sympathize with the Duke of Edinburgh. I think I would turn insane if I had to live like that. Even if it is Americanized it remains one of the better shows I see these days. Tata. __________________ “Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent.

Nicky I agree with you on the difficulty of being a royal. I think Megan Markle is giving up her freedom and I would not wish that on anyone. Anywway - what I mean mostly is the rest of them - like Fergie and her kids and the whole lot of them. Why do they get free housing and an "allowance". This is not right.

It's hard for Americans, I think, to understand why certain people by virtue of accident of birth are deemed "Royals." Why they're supposedly better than everyone else (?). Superior. Prince Harry's said "I don't know of anyone in my family who really wants to be King (or Queen)" (paraphrased). Prince Charles called his investiture "this strange thing." He's done so much for millions of youths btw, really helped them. The Queen is surprisingly quite liberal on some issues. More later, don't have time to write much, presently.

I miss Netflix.
I had to really tightly budget when my husband died so Netflix had to go and I had to cut channels on cable. I really wanted to see The Crown. I could maybe rent on XFinity but won’t because if the cost. I always just look at Free Movies.But I can still see some good things like Call the Midwives. __________________ I miss my love......
