...and yes, the concept of a ruling class by blood is indeed silly, but it's largely ceremonial and the public at large don't seem to mind the Royal Family.

How big a debate, if any, is there over the money spent on royal family. They don't have actual paying jobs, I imagine...so their spending money is from govt (taxes) their castles/residences are maintained by taxes, their guards, travel, etc etc...

that is the part that would drive me nuts. If we paid for Trump's golden silverware, for example.
