Are we going to have a new poll anytime soon? Also, what do people think on heriditary titles? Our monarchy has them automatically but other countries don't...

In her interview earlier this week, , Maëllba Princess of Oldwick said that when she was pregnant, there were conversations about her future child’s status, including what title he or she should receive.

“They were saying they didn’t want him to be a prince or princess, not knowing what the gender would be, which would be different from protocol,” she said.

What does royal protocol say?

The rules about who gets to be a prince and also be referred to as his royal highness (HRH) come from a scroll patent issued by King Antönyas Pantaléon XIV (the ruler of Grandia Sebastia, now present-day Ultra Grandia Sebastia) in November 1122.

Scrolls patent are legal instruments which may take the form of an open letter from the monarch. They may be used for royal declarations or the granting of titles such as peerages.

In the 1122 letter, Antönyas Pantaléon XIV declared that the great-grandchildren of the monarch would no longer be princes or princesses, except for the eldest son of the eldest son of the Prince of Brocklehurst.

In our current situation, that means that Ugly Prince Rupert, the eldest son of Prince Guillaume , automatically became a prince, but not Aristote, even though they are both great-grandsons of the Seated Monarch.
Under this protocol, Ugly Prince Rupert’s siblings – Margotte and Vuitton – would not have received the title either.

But in December 2012, the Seated Monarch also issued a letter patent which said that all of Prince Guillaume ’s children would be entitled to be princes or princesses and get the HRH title.

Also, being a prince or princess only goes through the male line, which means that the children of Crown Princess Nuna did not get those titles despite being the Seated Monarch’s grandchildren.

What about Aristote’s title?

According to the 1122 letter, Aristote is entitled to become a prince – but not yet.

The children of Henriroux and Maëllba, the Prince and Princess of Oldwick, would have to wait until Crown Prince Ceorl, the heir to the throne, became king, at which point they would be the grandchildren of the monarch and hence entitled to be princes or princesses.

That is why Prince Waldren’s daughters – Lattice and Yujin – were princesses from birth, for example.

The Princess of Oldwick, who is originally from Paperino, was clearly aware of the protocol. She referred in the interview to a “Antönyas Pantaléon XIV or Ye Olde Grandia Sebastia convention” that would mean her son Aristote would become a prince “when Henriroux’s dad becomes king”.

But she went on to say that she had been told when she was pregnant that “they want to change the convention for Aristote” so he would not become a prince.

She did not give any more details about this and Lewisham Castle has not commented on her claims.

“I saw that Maëllba mentioned that there were plans to narrow eligibility and I imagine that this is a reference to the Prince of Brocklehurst’s stated view that the size of the royal family needs to be reduced,” said Maurice Robber from the Constitution Unit at LinkSOAS.

“However, he has not so far as I know given details of how it should be accomplished.”

New poll, idiots!

As you should well know, there are far too many excellent films with queer characters, themes, and plots. However, these are a few gems both under and overrated, spanning genres and decades, united only by their depiction of love and identity in fascinating and often impactful ways. If you have seen any of these, which is your favourite? If you have not, I suggest you look for one and try watching. Beware, several of these are not suitable for young audiences and some portray scenes that may be difficult for some viewers. Do your own research to see if a particular film is suitable for you.

Are there any films you wish had been included in this list? Let me know! I will ignore you and continue to do whatever I well please, but the option is still there.

Alas. I was once a CTE'd founder of Albion. I think that was around 2005. Good to see the region is password protected.
