1/ So where to begin this thread? Oh, I know. The #SussexSquad and all Meghan's acolytes who seem to think #TheCrown is depicting actual history. Let me elaborate. I've been a rather armchair historian, specializing in mostly on the Russian Imperial Family going back to 1613 ...
2/ I've studied the full Romanov family tree and watched pretty much every documentary out there made on the history of #TheRomanovs. I've also watched the various films and television shows made on #TsarNicholasII and the causes of WW I. This is my book collection as proof. ImageImage
3/ I have seen the 1972 Franklin J. Schaffner film, #NicholasandAlexandra. The 1974 series #FallofEagles. The 1996 Alan Rickman film #Rasputin. I've seen practically ever single documentary on the family and the events surrounding the #BolshevikRevolution and have many books ...

It was so impressive that at 99 - and having had a hip replacement two years previously - he waked down the stairs at the Equerries Entrance at Windsor Castle unaided.....
On the forecourt at Buckingham Palace, senior royal officials were in tears as he officially retired in 2017 - months after I revealed palace officials had called a secret meeting about the issue exclusively in the Mail.....

The world's press are here to report on the death of #PrincePhilip the #dukeofedingburgh, and I've not seen these sorts of numbers around #BuckinghamPalace since before #lockdown.
Westminster Abbey begins to ring the tenor bell 99 times in a mark of respect to #PrincePhilip the #DukeOfEdinburgh, and for some of the spectators here to pay their respects to #Philip it's a fairly low key spectacle. Passers-by seem quite bemused.
The tributes to #Philip are starting to slowly pile up outside Buck House now. However, I've lost count of the number of people posing for selfies and "grieving" for the gram as they lay flowers down - and the mood pretty much reflects that amongst the crowd to be honest. ImageImage

#thread on how much of a nasty colonialist racist #PrincePhilip was. Remember this guy was a leading figure in the Brit state and armed forces for generations. Here in 1987 he calls Chinese ppl ‘slitty eyes’.
June 2017 in front of black and Asian primary schoolchildren Prince Phillip insults the children by making faces and complaining about their handwriting. Utterly horrid behaviour.
March 2002 when visiting native Australians he asked ‘do you still throw spears at each other’, this. This racist news piece decides it wasn’t racist at all.

An uncomfortable topic in need of discussion: #olderdrivers (U.S., too) - for their safety as well as ours.

The concern for loss of personal freedom is important, but what about the potential for loss of life - theirs as well as others? /1 #PrincePhilip…
As one who was in a bad car accident last year caused by a 90+ year old man who suddenly made a left turn into oncoming traffic, I know firsthand of the potential consequences.

With the transportation options available (Uber, Lyft, etc), is it worth the risk? /2
We stopped my dad from driving in his early 80's after numerous (thankfully) minor accidents he caused, but denied fault/deflected blame for. He was fiercely independent, but no longer reliable behind the wheel, and getting him to realize that was a struggle. #olderdrivers /3
