Charles, Prince of Wales, turns seventy-eight today. He's the heir apparent to the British throne as the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II and has held that position for the longest time out of any individual in the history of the U.K. Being Duke of Cornwall and Duke of Rothesay as well, he's known for his extensive charity work and pointed social commentary on issues such as environmentalism as well as for his, to put it delicately, sometimes controversial personal life.

What do you think about the royals in the U.K., friends? What about monarchies in general? Are they vestiges of past eras that ought to be cast aside? Or do they have much usefulness today?

I've heard that the monarchy is a net source of revenue for the UK due to the tourism that it brings in.

>Charles, Prince of Wales, turns seventy-eight today.
But the article that you cited (as well as Wikipedia) says that he turns 72 years old today!

Maybe Prince Charles is a time manipulator?
It would explain how the Queen is still alive.

All of the royal family are just time travelers

It's been the same family for centuries

If you want to make a thread to wish Joe Biden a happy birthday on Nov 20, you can probably do it within the rules, but you would need to be very careful in how you word it and what image you use.

As a kid I didn't understand the relationship between the Crown and the parliamentary government, and it's still hazy to me. Some places abroad still "recognize" the Queen, but I was always told she was a figurehead with no executive power, so what does this "recognition" mean? I suppose, as an American, I'm just not used to the notion of aristocratic traditions.

Though I will say that the idea of a politically prominent figure that is not directly involved with policy is interesting to me. Perhaps in some way it helps the system to function as a totality. And maybe it's also a historical precedence for what in modern parlance would be termed an "influencer".
