It is not a typical royal residence but a terraced house on a quiet and slightly dishevelled housing estate in Sale, Greater Manchester , is now the home of the new king of Rwanda. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4112302/New-king-Rwanda-56-year-old-security-company-boss-lives-council-house-Sale.html __________________ 'Monarchy can easily be ‘debunked;' but watch the faces, mark the accents of the debunkers. These are the men whose tap-root in Eden has been cut: whom no rumour of the polyphony, the dance, can reach - men to whom pebbles laid in a row are more beautiful than an arch. Yet even if they desire equality, they cannot reach it. Where men are forbidden to honour a king they honour millionaires, athletes or film-stars instead: even famous prostitutes or gangsters. For spiritual nature, like bodily nature, will be served; deny it food and it will gobble poison.' C.S.

...or even uncontestedly. Please see the thread on the funeral of King Kigeli V. The royal family of Rwanda has largely rejected this proclamation.
