86. As far as I'm concerned, the whole bunch of them
are irrelevant in today's world. They're a soap opera, and about as important as one.

Be careful about thinking of Prince Philip as insignificant, though. He's very vocal when he chooses to be (and has paid the price for some of his over-the-top controversial statements), and as husband to the Queen, his words carry more weight than you might think. He may have married into the royal family in Britain, but he himself was born into the royal families of both Greece and Denmark, and he is also a distant cousin to the Queen. His uncle was Lord Louis Mountbatten. Prince Philip definitely isn't a just a non-entity who married well. He may not set policy in the UK, but then neither does the Queen. The royal family stays out of politics.
