I am always agog about how someone (the Queen) can be presented with that situation and handle it with just the perfect amount of restraint. Wouldn't most of us just really laid it on thick until he figured it out? Just to see the reaction?

It just occurred to me that they'll have to change the money in the UK, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Trinidad, Bahamas, Belize, etc. to have the picture of Charles (possibly to be known as Phillip or Arthur) on it.


It will be Charles III, and the Bank announced that any bills with the Queen's image will still be valid.

You don't need to buy it...just hold on to your pound notes before they put Charles face on it.

Since crass isn't a thing... I sent a text to my family telling them this is the last day that Googling "King Charles" will return pictures of dogs.

I would agree.  Love or hate the monarchy, it's been quite an amazing run.
