    Hmm, Freeloaders is not quite right, yes they DO take money from the public purse BUT what is rarely mentioned is that the Queen pays back VASTLY more than that each year from her private land / property investments.

    The country makes money from Bet than her family take from the country.

    The other poster handled the main crux of your question though and did a good job - so no need to repeat it.

    The royal family is still English, though, they are just of German descent.

    That's like saying I am Irish when I'm American.

    Well if you must know Prince Phillip is the Prince of Greece and Denmark and was born in Corfu.

    Sigh.

    George V went through this eons ago, that's why he changed from Saxe-Coburn-Gotha to Windsor. They have been commonly accepted as British for years. Get over it.
