Fact of the Day: Royal Prime Minister

A lot of English/British monarchs have passed away without a son or daughter to take their place. King William IV was one of those monarchs, but he did have illegitimate children. Through this line, one of his modern descendants David Cameron is the current Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

Oh God - thanks for that startling information.
The House of Windsor or really it is Battenburg or Mountbatten after the Duke's
line which is the proper name, and now you suggest a House of Cameron. Thanks for the nightmare, mate.

How about we start the House of Davis und (and) Huggins?
It would be nice to have all those servants - ha ha.
And those wonderful estates - the mind boggles!!!
