When it's not part of your culture it feels very odd.

Yeah, I agree. It's just a cultural thing.


There's some things I don't really agree with, or understand about other country's cultures.

For example, why do the English still pay taxes to support the royal family, and their lifestyle? I'm assuming taxes pay for the guards, and all the employees who serve them (driver, etc.), and who upkeep Buckingham Palace.

It just seems like such an ancient concept; and let's be real - the royal family does nothing aside from being born, and their wealth was accumulated through cruelty in the past.

But I try to understand that it's part of England's history, and "her majesty" is a very important figurehead to the English.
