The Duke of Edinburgh lived for almost a century — a lot has changed in the world during that time. Notably, we are no longer colonies or underlings of the once vast and powerful British Empire. We are no longer in a time where the Royal Family instructed and everyone obeyed with a bow and a curtsy.

I Reserve My Respect for People who Work for a Living and Pay their Own Way
Very few of us, live in the lap of luxury, with servants to wait upon us, and recieve the best medical care money can buy. The overwhelming majority of the world is in a catastrophic state. We have thousands of children pushed into warfare or they’re working on the streets, instead of going to school. We still children dying from hunger and easily preventable disease. So I really honestly cannot shed a tear for someone dying at the grand old age of 99.
Mr Obama, however, posted an elaborately worded condolence today, on Medium. It was nothing but a fawning piece of non-sense, about the super privileged white immigant from Corfu. How kind, generous etc etec he was when he met Obama and his wife. I bet Prince Phillipe didnt hoover the carpets or wash up after dinner. Honestly, the slavish mentality of Obama towards white people of status, just goes on and on. I don’t mean any disrespect to the dead, but hey, we’re all gonna die, but not many of us will carry on till we are ninety-nine.
Very few of us, live in the lap of luxury, with servants to wait upon us, while we can rest comfortable, knowing we will receive the best medical care money can buy. My feeling is that while the world is in such a catastrophic state , when we have thousands of children working instead of going to school, when we still have thousands of childen dying daily, from hunger and easily preventable disease, I really cannot shed a tear for someone dying at the grand old age of 99 year.
Prince Philippe, the Greek, who changed his name and got British citizenship double quick, lived in extraordinary luxury for most of his life, paid for by hard-working people in the U.K, and poorly-paid people outside of the U.K. No hostile environment for him, nor 12 hour shifts in hospitals and transport and then getting booted out of the country at retirement age… The powers that be made sure he got the right papers and even if he had not, it wouldn’t have ever mattered. Being white, he was always going to be ‘alright’. Yes, shame on Obama, sending condolences for this man who led a life of unparalleled privilege, but who never spared a thought for all the Black lives lost due to the Monarchy’s rapacious greed, stretching across centuries right to the present day.
