          not even the welsh look that out of this world
          "On a given day, a given circumstance, you think you have a limit. And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit, and you think, 'Okay, this is the limit'. And so you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high."
          Ayrton Senna..

              The tradition of investing the heir of the monarch of Britain with the title of "Prince of Wales" began in 1301, when King Edward I of England, having completed the conquest of Wales, gave the title to his heir.



              This is the last real Prince of Wales: (much more handsome than Big Ears don't you think? )



              Llywelyn ap Gruffudd (Llywelyn the Last/ Llywelyn ein llyw Olaf) was “The Last True Prince of Wales”, who asserted Welsh nationhood before being slain by the English in 1282


              He was buried at Cilmeri

                  Yes, much more handsome and distinguished than "Big Ears"

                  Jaws, do you ever see Britain giving up the Monarchy?

                  Could you imagine being truly a queen centuries ago, knowing your fate
                  could end up on the head block?
                  "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

                        Opinions on the Monarchy would probably vary a lot depending on which part of Britain we are talking about. Although, quite a few of the English aren't as staunch in their support as they would have been a few generations ago and the public has become largely indifferent to the monarchy, I can't imagine many of them feeling strongly enough against the Monarchy to want to see it's abolition.

                        You would find more opposition amongst the native people of Scotland and Wales, but because there has been a lot of English immigration into those countries, if it went to a vote on whether or not to retain the Monarchy, as it stands, the presence of these people and people's resistance to change would ensure that it survives.

                        There is strong feeling amongst the people of my region, North West Wales against them and the majority of Welsh speaking Wales (which makes up just 20% of the population) would prefer to emulate our Irish cousins and have an Independent Republic. However, I don't see it coming to that in the foreseeable future.

                              Is there any chance or way to switch from Yes to No?
