Well, today has turned me into a republican.

I used to support the monarchy, primarily as an insurance policy, as a backstop against a constitutional coup.

We've been paying her and her family for centuries against they day they actually needed to earn their pay.

That day was today. She had one job. Ever, for the whole of her life. She blew it.

What do you do with an insurance policy that doesn't pay out when you need it to? First, you junk it, and second, these days, you claim "mis-selling" and a refund of all premiums paid.
