Gonna be honest, I am pretty surprised that the douchebag son of a gaudy Arab oil sheik hasn't tried to buy his way into the Royal Family yet. Seems like that would've been a more likely source of diversity for the Crown than a mulatto actresses marrying in.

It's worse. Who wants the Royal Family to be typified by gold-plated Hummers, Ferraris, and morally questionable conflict of interest in Saudi Arabia's northern oil fields?

Let's not act like multinational media conglomerates that are often state-funded and have considerable sway over public opinion are entirely the result of rational market forces acting independently.


And yet 29 million Americans tuned in to watch the Royal Wedding in 2018.

Yeah, I'm sure the state conglomerate is entirely responsible for making people turn on their tvs and watch.

None of which are Bavarian!

Protestants weren't to marry Catholics, don't you know?

Besides, it isn't as though the Catholics were all given equal standing—why my poor Savoyards had do make do with Yugoslavians, at least until Umberto could grab a Bavarian of his own—not that the Almanach de Gotha gave them much account compared to the more papally sanctioned French lillies.

EDIT: Since the joke may not be apparent, HM is infamously frosty towards the Jacobite pretender.
