The girls on…the monarchy

To set the scene we have watched Mr Stink today…twice. We’ve also read a book which has a princess with a lady’s maid in it. What follows is the sort of conversation we have in our house.

Tilly:  Is David Walliams really the Prime Minister?

Me:  No he wrote the book and is an actor. The Prime Minister is a man called David Cameron.
Tilly:  He’s called David though.
Me:  Yes but it’s not obligatory.
Tilly What’s obligatory mean?
Me: Has to be. The Prime Minister doesn’t have to be called David.
Tilly:  What does a Prime Minister do?
Me:  He’s pretty much in charge of the country.
Tilly:  I thought that was the Queen?
Me:  Not really. She doesn’t have much power these days.
Tilly:  So what’s good about being the Queen then?
Me:  She’s very rich and can have what she wants for dinner.
Tilly:  I know what’s bad about being the Queen.
Me:  What’s that?
Tilly:  Not being able to stop someone from pulling your trousers up for you even if you can do it yourself.
Phoebe: But I need help pulling trousers up. I can’t do anything. Pants or trousers.
