If our Royal family did really deliver the claimed numbers of tourists it's rather surprising that Buckebury is still undisturbed and no one has had the nouse to run coach tours from Newbury.

Maybe because she doesn't live with her pedants anymore. You only have to look at the faces of the public, here and abroad when they see the new Royals. Or maybe they've be ordered at pain of death to pretend.

Yes, agree about the faces of the people when they see the Royals; exactly the same expression as those who stand outside theatres etc. to see their favorite entertainment stars.

Almost to prove the point about Bucklebury, there are popular Coach tours around the districts where even quite old TV shows were made; Last of the Summer Wine, Dads Army, Coronation Street etc, etc.

Still, it's a bit of fun, but let's not pretend the Monarchy is a massive economic benefit.

They're not generally very accessible so I don't think you can! You might get as glimpse if there is a big royal event but it's not like you can pop over and have tea with them!

i was counteracting the statement that "Foreign tourists don't come here to see the Royal family anymore than we go to Sweden to see theirs."
Also they may not come to see the family per-see, but to see all that is associated with the.
Buckingham Place, Windsor Castle, Queen's Guard etc.

I completely agree, but those things would be there without the family living in them. As I said before I don't really want a monarchy, I don't see a benefit that equals the cost but I do agree that the queen is a good one, and I don't think it's all negative.

Yes they would but, be honest, they wouldn't have quite the same attraction to tourism would they?

I think the attraction would be greater as there would be more access to the palaces.

There's only one way to know that for sure though. And it would be an irreversible decision - referendum anyone?

There is another way, much more fun and it is reversable, as Cromwell's lad discovered.

Too difficult for you is it? Put your hand in your pocket and walk in. Sheesh!
