    I am British, but have homes in Great Britain and in Vancouver, Canada.

      ( I fly a lot )

    I am an 18th Cousin of Diana, Princess of Wales and a 19th Cousin of HM The Queen.

    I am a Stuart, which means I am related to all Stuart Kings and Queens.

    I have met most of the RF, some more than a few times.



    I lecture at a University.

Oh, have you met Wills and Harry?

BTW: I live in the state of Virginia here in the US but in my experinces it's not as great as people make it out to be. I live in the poorer, rural part of the state, but it's also a super conservative state politically and socially. I'd like some people's suggestions on the best states to live in, in the union.

How fascinating.  I'm sure I've missed it in here somewhere, but will keep an eye on your insights as to the royal family considering your history.

As for the 'Union' (only the South uses that term and I would be careful, these days, using it), Virginia has two parts, as you are probably already aware.  The very wealthy landowners and the not-so-wealthy.  If you are looking for a state in the Republic of the United States in which to live I have some recommendations based on the latest stats.  They are, in no particular order, except the first two:  North Carolina, Wisconsin (Madison in particular), North Dakota if you want to make money fast, certain parts of Atlanta, GA, Montana, Minnesota (if you are very liberal and love the cold/heat, no medium to speak of), New Mexico (Santa Fe, my fave), and the real midwest, i.e., Indiana, Iowa, Nebraska, and Kansas.  Other than that, the east and west coasts are beyond expensive and highly populated.  The state of Florida is probably my least favorite because of the school system, high crime rate, bugs, oppressive heat and it's flat as a pancake.  Oddly, northern, inland California is awesome as is Seattle and parts of Washington State, if you like rainy, mountainous regions.

Good luck with your re-settlement.  If you are a Brit/UK by nationality, then I suggest Boston, Rhode Island or the northwest areas of the US if you want to feel 'at home'.  They seem to congregate there.

Even though I've lived most of my life in KY, I still consider myself an Ohio Buckeye. I haven't had the chance to travel much, none outside the US sadly. A dream is to get to England, Scotland, Ireland, Canada and Russia someday. easter-egg-basket

I'm American and a lifelong Seattle resident with a great deal of English ancestry. 

No royals or significant nobles that I know of (perhaps some minor landowners in the 11th and 12th centuries).  Some of them packed up, sailed across the Atlantic and made a home for themselves in the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1635.  Others, mainly from Cornwall, arrived later.

If you resort to personal attacks, name-calling, and other forms of abuse against me, you are admitting you have lost the argument and have nothing worthwhile to say. 

Not joining in with your starry-eyed hero worship does not make me delusional, it means I have no interest in drinking your poisoned Kool-Aid. 

Have a nice day.
