    "Hey, the entire royal family just died in a freak Corgi accident, who is in charge now?"
    "The prime minister?"
    "No, who's in charge?"
    "Oh, right. . . the minister of agriculture?"
    "Do we have one of those?"
    "I don't know, but we better make one and make him king."
    "Yeah, okay, that sounds about right."

    That's actually closer to a description of how the U.S. presidential succession works, minus the prime minister.

    The only proper procedure for kingship should be watery tarts throwing swords at people.

    If that does happen we'll just replace the entire lot with a clone of John Candy and everything will work out fine.

    A tart is a woman of ill repute.

    Watery means she's found in a lake.

    It was a derogatory remark about a central character in Arthurian myth, the lady in the lake, who gives Excalibur.

    Excalibur is a euphemism for oral sex

    I thought she only received it. - I've only seen the crappy 80's film.

    Wait. That's even worse if we're doing sexual innuendo.

    He got to be King and be Of Orange for a while, that was enough for the Dutch to know they didn't really want it.

    That is such a twentieth century concept. What are you, older than eleven? Younger than give or take a thousand years old?

    Yeah, European royalty is all intertwined.

    How the hell does the throne even work? If William drops dead tomorrow, is she still in line to become a Queen? Or does she have to become the queen first and then he has to drop dead? How do the Targaryens fit into this? And why was Prince Albert always a prince? Wasn't he married to a queen? And just what is a marquess anyways?

    Only one person can be the Ruler in this monarchy as far as I'm aware.

    Not necessarily. William and Mary were known as the Joint Monarchs when they were in power.

    Oh but you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you!
