Might be the wrong day for this, or inappropriate in this thread, if so kindly ignore.

But seen a few of you here and on Facebook call him sir.

Is that serious? You subjugate to someone a lot younger just because he is born to a (much changed and bastardised) bloodline and is born into privilege ?

Do you really see them as above you and in need of cap doffing so to speak or as said subjugation?

Honestly, not a dig or anything, I just don't get it. I will never be a subject, just a citizen!

I just think it's polite, but also, I love the royal family.

When I came back from America this year, I found my self saying 'thank you sir' to the guy who served me at McDonalds on the way back from the airport. I was getting called sir all week over there, just by people who I was sitting at the poker table with.

Oh I use sir a lot, I enjoy it, but not in this sort of instance!!

Just interested really. Think after the Queen it should all end but I know very well I am in the minority lol

I wouldn't bow but then again I am not supposed too. A little curtsy maybe though I would probably wobble these days and end up on my arse.
