What happens if the Cambridge kid is retarded?

Kate would be unlikely to try again...Harry and Andrew will probably die before William...

Would a mentally incapacitated monarch be preferred to Queen Beatrice? Would Fergie's royal title be restored if her daughter was Queen? What would happen to Kate, The Dowager Queen if her retarded kid was prevented from assuming the throne?

Excuse me?

I don't see what the problem with a mentally retarded monarch would be. After all, we had George W. Bush for eight years, and everything turned out just fine.

No one will notice.

You think this would be the first mentally-challenged person to sit on the throne of England? In this century?

All those years of inbreeding have already taken their toll.

OP i think you mean the Windsor Kid / Duke and Duchess of Cambridge kid..

either way, it may well be retarded. it is belived that edward's kid is tarded which is why they don't trott it out often.

let's face it, william has the same windsor gene's as edward and kate (and the rest of the middleton spawn) is good for nothing... there's a good chance the child will need carrying for the rest of its life.

that said, it will be born into the right family for that to carry it through life, can't see it ever getting a day job, especially if it is born a girl.

Unless it was born with obvious retardation i.e. downs or something I doubt if the royal family would ever admit its retarded, they would just have it as a puppet and get people to tell it what to do..

R1: the Line of Succession goes...



(William's kids that Kate is able to carry to full term)





THEN Edward, Countess of Wessex

R5, even a retarded child would probably spell & punctuate & use the English language better than you do.

They can do genetic testing in utero and announce that she has 'miscarried'

It would be announced that the baby died at birth and it would be spirited off to a private institution to live out its days in seclusion under a false name.

If the kid is developmentally disable he or she will be like the grandfather Charles. The R word is a no no these days.

You people are fucking morbid and stupid.

R1, if William and Harry died without an heir, and Andrew died, and Charles had died, then Andrew's children oldest child be next in line. Edward would succeed only if both of Andrew's daughters died.

Fergie would get whatever Queen Bix set up in Letters of Patent. And she likely would have the government screeching to keep it modest.

Of course the OP's assumptions are silly.

An heir incapable of ruling (in the case of genetic issues affecting learning, speech and cognition, for example) would be passed over. Something official would be done in advance to reset the succession.

(Anne's children would not be affected by recent changes in monarchical succession, allowing females their place by age precedence.)

R8 already nailed it. These days you can, although it's not commonplace, run a full genome test on fetus DNA to see if it has any definite or possible genetic disorders. If it's a big one like autism or Down's ... well, see, Mommie, you do need wire hangers sometimes.

I would love a Queen Beatrice. And having Fergie get her nasty little toes back in the royal circle would be so sweet.

I believe the Queen Mother had some relatives that were kept in seclusion at Glamis Castle. They were mentally challenged. There was a history of such relatives living in a small isolated room at the castle that led to the legend of the "monster of Glamis"

Kept in seclusion.

Plus, with a Queen Beatrice there'd likely be an American as Prince Consort.

Is Beatrice the cute one?

by Anonymousreply 2112/05/2012

They'd just say it looks like its grandfather.

They stick an ice pick in her eye socket and wiggle it around. It shut Rosemary Kennedy up for 60 years.
