What happened to the old Royal yacht? Must be a bit expensive to fuel up for a weekend jaunt around in the English channel. But... I'm envious. The US doesn't have a royal yacht. They used to have a Presidential yacht or two over the years. One President had a secret operation on one...an operation where doctors cut him open not the kind were some secret agent undertakes to take out Osama Bin somebody.
