To be honest I'd rather respect the order of succession. Guess my compatriots don't agree.

If you read back thru the thread you'll see the statement from the MLC pointing out that they do not support changing the order. Some member opened his mouth before engaging his brain.

I have just come across this posting hence my delay with apologies.I would not have thought him (PH) a wise choice for a number of reasons, but this recent quote by 'Anon' on another site might raise a few eyebrows, and I quote:"I read somewhere that a horticulturist is thinking about naming a rose after Prince Harry, Presumably the name will be either Harry or Prince Harry, but in view of his appalling army record in the Middle East, what colour should it be? It has been suggested  more than once that it ought to be white with streaks of yellow." There was a lot more to this thread, but  what do readers think on this particular point?.

I'd wager the horticulturist never took up arms at all.....

The prince went were he could for as long as he could in Her Majesty's Military.  Can the rose grower say the same?

Baron, the horticulturalist didn't write that comment, an anonymous person did.

KYJ,
You don't have to be a horticulturist to grow roses....Even anonymous posers can grow them.....

Even so, it would have been better if I had asked if the wannabe rose namer could say the same.  

Motion to amend seconded...

Not excactly sure what you mean by this, but, as a Canadian, if I were in favour of changing the succession (which I'm not), I would be happy to have Harry as King. While I wish a long life to his Grandmother and his Father, I'm sure that he will make a fine King of Canada and the other Commonwealth Realms when his day finally comes.

Making Prince Harry the King of Canada would mean the breakup of the Commonwealth. What is the sense of destroying something important for both Canadian and British people? It would be better to appoint members of the Royal Family as Governors-General, and Prince Harry would be a good choice for one of the Realms, maybe Canada. I think that the Commonwealth can survive under one monarch only if the G-Gs will be royals. Sad to say but it's unlikely to happen now.
