Utterly spoilt and selfish rant
[[MORE]] Sometimes I get so sick of living with my sister. This week she’s been unbelievably aggressive and even violent at times. I’m only glad that she never hits with much precision, I can always deflect her with ease. She never gets up until late in the morning and deliberately takes hours getting ready, leaving everyone frustrated. Every last thing becomes a battle. Her new...

Prince William favoured to take over from Queen →
jamesfromta: Even though this won’t happen unless Prince Charles abdicates when he becomes King, it would be awesome. It goes to show that most people have not forgotten the way he treated Princess Diana. I think people need to realise that if they want to elect their monarch we need to get rid of the monarchy.
