That was before TV and internet though. The modern monarch has so many extra demands on his time.
His father must have been a lot thinner, keeping up with the extra 110 wives, so quite entitled to wear the royal Y-fronts.
His father reigned for 82 years, so obviously he was doing something right. He must have had lots of energy, satisfying 125 women and running a country.

With 125 wives and who knows how many mistresses, it's no wonder he was the king of his own country. He was effectively the Queen Bee.

Are they nat pulling out like facepalm book?...
No, Apple are staying put. They've moved their dodgy Apple International tax dodge scam which got us into trouble with the EU commission to Guernsey, but they weren't adding anything to our economy anyway so fúck them.

Apparently he only has 15 wives, it was his father who had 125 of them.
Ah, he's a modernist.

I think the reason he has fewer than his predecessor is because of the global rise in same sex marriage - and to be fair our far right cry babies did warn us it would undermine traditional marriage. I bet they feel vindicated.

If he had 125 wives and still kept mistresses I think the UN need to seriously consider a Viagra embargo.

Let's give him tons of aid to celebrate - Yahoo!

I see also the bossman of one of our aid favoured countries, Museveni in Uganda is warning us of the evils of oral sex and wants to ban it -

Uganda's President Wants to Ban Oral Sex, Says the "Mouth is for Eating"

Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni says he wants to ban oral sex | Daily Mail Online

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/6087942/ugandan-president-yoweri-museveni-ban-oral-sex/

In fairness Museveni though he strongly disapproves of homosexual acts, he did intervene to stop Uganda making homosexual acts capital offences, which back in the far distant day they were in Britain and Ireland!
It should be a crime to give money to government led by the likes of Museveni. They just pocket it or did think they may have changed method after some of our aid ended up in the Ugandan PM's personal bank account. Shocker.

Seems funny and all until you realise none of those women were probably permitted to say no.

The Kingdom of Swaziland isn't exactly to the forefront of African politics, let alone global current affairs, but King Mswati III is notorious as one of the last remaining absolute monarchs, with multiple wives, crushing any political opposition to his autocratic rule, and violating numerous articles of human rights. Now, the King has decreed that the country should change its name, declaring it to be the"Kingdom of eSwatini":

About bleeding time.

Still waiting though on what color socks Meghan Merkel will wear on her honeymoon.

Won’t sleep until then.

You jest but the reality is that the man in question gets invited to such given his "blue blooded "status.

Now an argument can be made, based on supposition, that the firm next door to us dont really believe in the god anointed stuff and that this is just protocol & pomp and circumstance, especially with the Harry doing an Edddie and falling for a colonial commoner with non one saying anything but "good luck & best wishes"......However the latter is now well down the line of succession and as well as mr "next week lets rebrand the country as bitcoin world" events such as a wedding or funeral of heirs/ dowagers etc. feature all manner of european "title" holders a fair old percentage of which have no actual standing anymore and are about as closely related to the "firm" as some of the old lads knocking around fading country house in longford & cavan .....i.e. it seems hohenzollern, holy roman emperors, burbons and everything in between do still have a special status in the eyes of someone writing the guest list.

And a final note, we laugh an absolute monarchy in a poor tribal country in southern Africa. But the oh so sexy, oh so rational, oh so dwell designed modern Scandinavians and northern Europeans are, remember, replete with their own little depressing constitutional dynasties donned in frocks & all manner of decorations.

No one can claim to believe in democracy , equality and openness in society and argue in favor of monarchy, with the laziest argument being the " oh who would we have instead BS".
What can be more symbolic of equality than the method of appointing a head of state.And while it doesn't ensure or prevent equality in absolute ( see what i did there) terms it sure as hell sets the tone.

Perhaps it's a clever internet placement strategy, for e-commerce and e-strategies, becoming Africa's equivalent of e-Estonia?

What sort of colossal moron went for 'e-Estonia' rather than 'eStonia' or 'E-stonia'? I mean, they're just throwing away the natural advantage of the country's name beginning with an 'e'. Is there some embassy I can write to to express my outrage or will I have to make do with bothering the Editor of the Irish Times?
