It doesn't make much sense does it? Anyone who has been in the spotlight before they die suddenly find every TV and radio station mourning and repeating the story. He didn't affect my life in any way and i don't know him. So I won't be mourning.

I'm sad, but for another reason, today:

He and Margaret were the only ones of the older Royals I would have liked to meet.

I don't know that guy, but according to Wikipedia he seemed to have been a very down to earth guy with a great sense of (polically incorrect) humour.

He didn't give a shit who he pissed off, including the Queen. It was widely reported that he stormed through Buckingham Palace once and shouted 'What am I, a fucking amoeba!' I don't know if the reason for the outburst was recorded. It's also reported he supported the World Wildlife Fund so there would be plenty of animals and birds to shoot.

And now that I've heard the news, it's back to my everyday life which hasn't changed in the slightest. :deadpan: After the Meghan Markle interview on Oprah those royals don't seem to be a bunch I would ever want to interact with.

I liked him.  I was pulling for him to make 100, but he himself said he didn't want to make it (years ago).  He would have been fun to have a few drinks with.  I'll miss the old bugger.
