Introduction: We see it in the news all the time; the British Royal family making a mockery of the crown. Scandal. Divorce. Drunken carousing. The Queen stoically takes the brunt of whatever tomfoolery her offspring bring. You’d think they’d act a little more like royalty. You’d think they’d care how what they do affects the crown. You’d think they’d be a little more considerate of Queen Grandma. But no. They are royals behaving badly. They only care about what they care about. And it brings shame on the Queen and the crown. But, it isn’t just this set of royals. Look through history to see how royals have brought shame to the crown.
