There was a report on the BBC last night. They were debating whether he will be able to relax.

I think the consensus was that he would be able to relax.

Quality journalism.

Do you think the Queen might retire now?

The moment he  met the queen and then married he lost his freedom there and then, with every living minute the eye of the newspaper camera on your every breath, see if you would like that :(

I think I could handle that in exchange for never having to work or worry about money...

Never having to cook
Never having to clean
Never having to mow the lawn

Sounds pretty good to me. It's not done the any harm either - they all seem to live to a ripe old age.

I read something today that was saying the queen will be standing down in favour of prince charles  and the wheels are in motion allegedly according to inner circle contacts
