Why are the royals suddenly giving the plebs advice?

Recommended Posts

Just noticed a rise in this, the royals telling us how to live. Two examples from the mail

The Duchess of Cornwall yesterday warned the Instagram generation against ‘ridiculous’ diets.

Highlighting the celebrity-inspired fad for dairy-free and ‘clean eating’ regimes, she said youths were risking the health of their bones.

She voiced her fears in an interview with the Daily Mail in which she told of her family’s struggles with osteoporosis, a disease that killed her mother and grandmother.

 

so camilla, when did you qualify as a nutritionist?

The Duchess of Cambridge has revealed her self-doubts after calling for more support for teachers and children in a battle against Britain's 'social problems' during a mental health conference.

What we have all been discussing here today really brings to light the vital role teachers are playing in supporting our youngest children’s mental health.

 

so Kate, tell me, is your expertise in education or psychology?

William is very passionate about mental health issues.

He maybe but that in itself does not give the royal family the right to preach. Leave it to those with some expertise.

Give them their moment in the sunset. They are on the way out anyhow. The new culturally enriched Britain will have no need for them.

Yes, I feel that the elite, the royals included, have not the first clue that their social experiment will eventually trickle up to impact them.

I shouldn't worry they've managed to stay at the top for a loooong time...

William's no wet wipe either.

Bit harsh. In the world of celebrity these people are triple A rated. What they say is listened to, even if, like you, you don't agree with it. If it helps one person then it's worth saying. Are you saying a dairy free diet is a good thing? Is children's mental health not important?

I’m not agreeing or disagreeing, rather taking issue with non experts spouting forth as if they were.

Not if “we” are entrusting it to teachers.

Republican movement is growing, Meghan and the death of the queen will be the end of the publicly funded monarchy if they're not careful. It's in their interests to appear to remain relevant as much as possible or the gravy train will run out of steam sharpish.

To be fair in this case he's probably eligible on the basis of expertise (well personal experience from hi mother). Unlike  of course any of the rest lecturing about eating on a budget,  like they have any experience of that, we can do that. xD

Personal experience does not make an expert though.

For sure, but look at the experts we have nowadays do many of them ave any real experience in what they are experts in - on a personal basis, in particular just raising awareness of mental health issues is a net positive.

Future Trooping of the Colour will feature President Africanus driving down The Mall in his pimpmobile while discharging an assault rifle into the air.

Yes, I think a lot of people in uk have some respect for the queen. When she dies I expect there will be calls to discuss the relevancy of the monarchy and it’s funding.

Charles for one won't have any financial problems. I've seen the rents charged on some of the Duchy of Cornwall leaseholds.
