I think I was too little to understand what exactly was going on but I do remember my mum crying watching the funeral on TV.

depends what you mean by patriotism.. if by patriotism you mean waving the flag, singing the national anthem, glorifying the country.. i don't do any of that lol.. but i respect both countries, and am loyal to the country i live in.. not blind loyalty though.
 
i dont even know the whole british national anthem lol
 
i remember they used to make us stand up whenever we heard the national anthem in school in india. then when i would hear it at home, I would feel compelled to stand at attention LOL

I'm afraid I don't know the whole British National Anthem eitherOuch
I think a lot of people don't know it, even some of the footballers that should. You always see some of them mumbling it lol
I've noticed that a lot of people aren't 'proud to be British' and it's quite sad. They constantly talk about how bad the system is but never complain when they benefit from other policies. It frustrates me and one of the few times I saw the country and in particular the youth so interested in the country and its future was during the elections in May so that was good to see.

@empty: Xo's right. I was having this convo with my dad the other day and I told him that I thought the royal family was useless and he was telling me that I'd be surprised at how much tourism it brings in. He said he still remembers the last royal wedding (Charles and Princess Diana) and people went absolutely crazy. People stayed up all night near west london to catch a glimpse of the couple and it did indeed bring in a lot of revenue.
 
yeah, economic theory tells us that price is related to scarcity. since there can be only one royal family in the country, and there are so few countries these days with a monarchy, royal stuff is really scarce and brings in a lot of money :D
