In the last week, since the wedding, the Windsor-1 family tree has been put under Privacy restrictions. This recent action needs to be reversed. The Royal family tree is very public and absolutely NO secret. By Wikitree cloaking the living Royals under the Privacy restrictions, it only harms Wikitreers because the living Royals lineages are already in the Public Domain. Please let's get the King's daughter Queen ElizabethII and her spouse Prince Phillip connected again.

I remember the day the King died. We were still in primary school which was where we heard the news. Most of us wept which seems very odd nowadays. It is hard to explain just how important he was to us (from the newsreels I suppose) and I daresay it was because of the war. Churchill was the war leader but the King was the "father". Playtime was very sober that day.
