I PM’d BroonAle to let him know that there’s a race on, and he’s promised to try and drink himself to death before the night is done.
Why is Monaco a Principality? Because it’s ruled by a Prince, but why isn’t it a kingdom? The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is ruled by a Grand Duke, but why isn’t he a king? Norway is a kingdom, same for Sweden and the Netherlands.
The UK, incidentally, is no longer an empire and no longer a kingdom. (The monarchy has effectively been dispensed with as head of state bu the media.) Now it’s a country - ruled by Rupert Murdoch.
