They won't show up in the death statistics for the most part but I think we'd have noticed a need for a lot more ICU beds around the world over the last few months if it was already prevalent everywhere?

There was talk of two strains though, but I assume you need to get both to be immune to both? So it's moot if people had the milder strain?

Be glad to be corrected by a medical type.
It makes them special. A cold or flu doesn't sound cool. Exactly as you say, we'd have noticed the massive influx much earlier had it been around longer (especially if it was even more infectious). Growth curves are growth curves, it can't have been around months in advanced, and still only now have this growth curve.

Mildly amusing thought - if Liz, Charlie, and Wills were all to pop their clogs, Harry becomes Prince Regent and would have to move back to the UK

I'd imagine Charles will be fine, he'll have the kind of health care normal people can only dream of.

Doubt they'd have made this announcement if it wasn't serious though.

I work in product development for a large auto manufacturer. What has been going on (mostly in the background) from so many companies and individuals is really encouraging. We have been utilising our leverage and expertise in purchasing, logistics, rapid manufacture and mass production to support existing medical equipment manufacturers of masks, screen, respirators and ventilators. Hopefully it will give the frontline workers the tools they really need to do their jobs in the coming months.

Additionally, donating PPE (that is not currently required in our plants due to shudowns) and loaning vehicles to the Red Cross etc. are simple, but great ways to help out.

I don't believe people should go looking for praise for doing the right thing, but think hopefully we will be able to look back and take some satisfaction in knowing we have done a bit to help....

Prince Pedo is probably the only royal even less suited to the task.

George becomes King, but won't have reached majority. Harry become Prince Regent as next in the line who has, until George reaches 18

Harry actually is still HRH - but has been told not to use it. He's still in the line of succession and can't easily be removed

The line of succession hasn't mattered a damn since the Hannovarian take over. George 1 was, I think, 57th in the line of succession.

The line of succession was fairly ill defined until the Act of Settlement in 1701, which made Sophia heir presumptive - until then it was a much more speculative arrangement. She died a couple of months early to be Queen, so George 1st was immediately next in line. Since then, the line of succesion as defined by the Act and a few minor amendments has been followed to the letter

Not sure I understand you post correctly, but the current Queen was not in the direct line and didn't know she was going to be Queen until she was 8 years old or something.
At the time she was 8, Elizabeth was 2nd in line to the throne, as the daughter of the Prince 1st in line. The difference is that it was always assemed that she would slip down the rankings form that point - if the King has any children they would take precedence over her, and even if she ended up with a baby brother at the time he would have precedence over her.

When the King abdicated she moved up one spot. But she was ALWAYS in the line of succession.

Yeah - If Eddie had had kids that could have thrown up some potential issues that conspiracy theorists would have no doubt enjoyed, but as things panned out, she just became Queen a couple of decades earlier than she would have done anyway

You do realise they did have a child who married the direct descendant of Jesus in the south of France and the progeny of that match is heir to Rome and the Realm and Church of England?
