They Are Amöng Us


Another day.

More reptiles Royals.

This morning.

Áras an Uachtaráin, Phoenix Park, Dublin

Sweden’s King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia on the first day of a two day state visit to Ireland with President Michael D Higgins and Sabina.

How jaunty an angle?

Very jaunty, in fairness.

    They are so not among us…..I saw the 15 or so black car fleet whizz by me in the park earlier, preceded and followed by a fleet of Garda cars/bikes!

    These guys, Prince Charles, Mariah Carey, Alice in Chains and the Spice Girls. What a week to be alive.

      And not one of them brandishing a hurl or downing a pint. Meeja must be disappointed.

    In the second pic, are the folks at the back from the Irish armed services with a new uniform? Or, are they Swedes and those caps look Napoleonic so they probably are? If the latter, surely that’s a breach of protocol or are visiting dignitaries now allowed bring their own personnel in ceremonial uniform?

      That’s just the Irish army band uniform, isn’t it? Unless we now arm them with jazz saxophones and the like.

    Imagine being a monarchy, eh ? Not like us, a proper republic. Bet their housing and health services are a right mess.
