If/when a royal declares that they are not identifying as cisgender, how are we going to identify them? While America may have had Prince, and or the Artist formerly known as, we're a bit shorthanded in acceptable classical terminology for real royals. No?

       No. Since numerous royals have managed perfectly well already without needing to modify their titles (for example, Richard I, a bisexual psychopath, and Edward II, bestest friend to Piers Gaveston) there seems no need to do anything..

       Bisexual is a bit different than transgendered, however.

       I don't see why people would waste their title namespace with details about their gender or sexuality. For example, first and foremost I am an engineer and am biassed against any other form of human who does not prioritise the practical and logical solving of real world problems (such as how to invent wireless communications). I can tolerate shallow people at parties, but I'm really not a fan.

       I have greater acceptance of the shallow than that [big], I can tolerate them anywhere, but only if they're the gender I find myself sexually attracted to & pretty of course..   

       Umm.   

       [Pauses for thought]   

       Ah, it's probably a case of like being attracted to like then.   

       Except I'm not pretty.   

       [Pauses to be confused]

       Except. The word is except. I expect that you can accept that, exceptionally.

       Damn my spelling & auto correct, always ganging up on me those two, fixed.

       It does pose an interesting question though, why aren't ugly shallow people extinct already? you wouldn't think they'd be able to find anyone to procreate with.   

       Does this perhaps point to the shallow-ugly gene combo being recessive?

       Networking skills, probably.

       it's actually an intriguing question for monarchies where succession laws are based on gender. Presumably there they would tend to identify in a way that gets them the throne.

       ... or rather, doesn't get them brutally murdered by greedy, intolerant aristocrats who think that a crown would go very well with that armour and that sword ...

       I think "Queen" can be used in a number of gender-other situations as it is. "King" is another versatile one, as in "those 'king royals!" or "Edward is 'king useless".

       Lillie Langtry would be the definitive source for the latter.   

       We initially misread the idea title as "Trains Titles for Royals" which since Royal trains are WKTE seemed a trifle redundant.   

       There is the amusing story of a late 19th century Central European monarch whose delight was to actually drive the Royal train. The train would stop just out of sight of its destination so His Majesty could climb down from the footplate and wash and change into his robes as the train puffed the last few miles.

Well, go ahead and tell it.

       After the reception we received when we told the story "It was a dark and stormy night ..." we are not inclined to acceed to your request.
8th of 7, Jun 11 2019
  

       Yes, well, the fact that you were telling it in New Orleans, in one of the Katrina Refuge Centres, may have contributed to its poor reception. By the way, did the beer bottle come out OK?
MaxwellBuchanan, Jun 11 2019
  

       Eventually, yes. The man at the recycling centre forbore from commenting, and we still use the "standing desk" we purchased even though it's no longer absolutely necessary.
