Can you imagine the responses if you asked Americans on the street to say who Princess Anne was, or if she was dead or alive?

so prove your point with statistics, not empty assertions (on the face of it I'd probably agree with Canada, absolutely not with Americans if you pro-rate anything by viewership/readership by total population)

Oh my bad, thought this was more of a lighthearted conversation. I don't have stats, It's just my opinion having had very dull conversations with Americans about mugs and plates with royals on them once they've realised I'm a Brit. Can't say I've ever had the misfortune of having these conversation with Brits around a dinner table. We usually talk about sex.

I think you are underestimating American ignorance. Based on your observation I asked 6 people in my office, all college educated, to name as many members of the royal family as possible. Three said Charles, Diana, William and Harry. One said Queen Elizabeth. One said Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, Fergie and "Diana's two kids." One said Queen Elizabeth, Charles and Charles Jr.  No one could name who William married.

Well I guess we both made sweeping statements then...

Oh settle down Paula Revere. No one doubts that you're a patriot of the truest stripe.

I'm sure most Americans have little to no interest in the antics of the cretinous inbreds who top the pommy totem pole by virtue of birth, but I'm reliably informed that Canadians are monarchy mad.

Well the English speaking ones at least.

Good point. After all, most Americans can't even find their own country on a map of the world, never mind the British Isles.

Holding me responsible for bad education in Southern states is like blaming me that Southerners don't fully fund ADAP programs.

Now, if you want to compare and contrast the Northeast US and the UK (similar population numbers and land areas (though we, naturally, have a much higher GDP -- 25% of US total is from the Northeast-- because British people are lazy and drink too much) then I'm all go for it.

Got a news flash for you Miss PeePee, I blame you for EVERYTHING, EVERYWHERE on the entire planet. Quite rightly too, as I'm sure many in the know will agree. So there. :P

Nope. We stick the monarch's dolly old eek on the $5 note. Only Crown Crazy Canada would the King merit a mention on a $20. :)

The beauty of a monarchy is that you don't have to go through the tedium and expense of electing a head of state (or devise some other undemocratic system to appoint a head of state).

I kind of like our current situation, a monarch who lives 20,000 km away and, except in the most exceptional of circumstances, stays out of our affairs.

Be forgiving, be grateful, be optimistic
