'Smithgate' could be end of the monarchy

The Paul Burrell trial aired much of the Windsors dirty laundry in public. The airing was cut short when the Queen famously "remembered" that Burrell had told her that we was going to keep some of Diana's personal belongings for safe keeping.

A trial on which hundreds of thousand of pounds had been spent on had been stopped by one phone call from the Queen, presenting evidence she'd refused to give when asked by Burrell's defence team.

Once again, allegations of extremely unpleasant royal acts are back in the news, this time accompanied by suggestions that if they ever reach the light of day the monarchy could be fatally damaged.

It appears the Royals are now considering spending £5m (taken from your taxes) to silence Burrell, this time in the form of a bribe, rather than a car crash.

    It makes a provocative thesis regarding the monarchy's eventual demise. The author raises legitimate worries about how recent scandals and shifting public opinion may affect the institution's survival. Although the conclusion is not clear, it is essential for the monarchy to change and win back the public's faith in order to maintain its survival in the contemporary day.

  23. Wow! This blog post sheds light on the intriguing drama surrounding the Windsors, and it's like a rollercoaster of emotions. The Queen's sudden "memory" revelation during the Paul Burrell trial adds a thrilling twist, while the looming possibility of scandalous revelations potentially damaging the monarchy has me on the edge of my seat. Now, with rumors of a £5m bribe circulating, it seems like the Royals are resorting to unconventional measures to maintain their secrets. It's a captivating story that combines suspense, intrigue, and a touch of royal mischief!
