lesson83 The Royal Family   王室(英国)

原文:

TG:Tour Guide    T:Tourist

 

TG And this is Buckingham Palace, home of the Queen of England.

THow long h.as England had a monarchy?

T:G For well over a thousand years.

TWho was the most famous king of England?

TG: Perhaps it was Henry VIII who had six wives.

T: Why did he have so many wives?

TGHe wanted a son and when none of his wives gave him one he would either divorce them or have them beheaded.

T: Who was the most famous Queen of England?

TG: I think there are two contenders for that tide. Queen Elizabeth I who never married and was known as the Virgin Queen and Queen Victoria. Both lived for a long time and expanded Britain's trade and colonies overseas.

T: Is the monarchy popular in England?

TG: Yes, I think so. Queen Elizabeth II has ruled for over 50 years and is very popular with her subjects just like her mother who lived to be 101 years old.

T: Who win succeed her?

TG: Her eldest son, Prince Charles, who recently married Camilla. His eldest son, Prince William will then succeed him.

T: So it's always the eldest son who succeeds?

TG: Yes, but if there are no sons then it passes to the eldest daughter which is what happened in Queen Elizabeth's case.

T: Can you tell me something about Princess Diana.

TG: Well she was certainly the most popular of the royal family in recent years.

T: I know she did a lot of charitable work but it was really tragic that she died to young.

TG: Yes. I remember that day and the national outpouring of grief that followed. I think everyone in the UK was glued to their seats watching the funeral on TV and there wasn't a dry eye in the whole of the country.

T: I think that Prince William is very handsome and I would love him to be king one day.I think he would make a better king than his father.

TG : I think most people think that but he will have to wait until his father dies just as Charles has to wait until his mother dies.

TG:这里是白金汉宫,英国女王的家。

T:  英国君主立宪制的历史有多长?

TG:有一千多年了。

T:  英国最有名的国王是谁?

TG:也许是那位有6个妻子的亨利八世

T:  他怎么有这么多妻子呢?

FG:他想要个儿子,当没有一个妻子能给他生儿子时,他要么离婚要么就把她们杀头。

T:  英国最有名的女王是谁?

TG:上对于这个名号,我想有两位女王不相上下。一个是终生未婚被称为“童贞女王”的伊丽莎白一世,另一个是维多利亚女王,她们两个都活了很长时间,而且还向海外扩大了英国的贸易和殖民地。

T:  君主立宪制在英国受欢迎吗?

TG:我认为是受欢迎的。伊丽莎二世统治了50多年,和她那位活了101岁的母亲一样,受到臣民们的拥戴。

T:  将来谁会继承她的王位?

TG:她的大儿子查尔斯工子,最近娶了米拉的那个。查尔斯王子的大儿子,威廉王子以后也会继承他的王位。

T:  也就是说,一直都是长子继承王位了?

TG: 是的。但如果没有儿子,就会传位给长女,伊丽莎白女王就是这样继承王位的。

T: 你可以跟我讲讲有关戴安娜王妃的事吗?

TG:哦,她的确是近几年来王室成员中最受欢迎的人,

T:  我知道她做了很多慈善工作,但她那么年轻就去世的确是个悲剧。

TG:是的。我记得,那天全国上下部沉浸在悲痛之中。我想所有的英国人都端坐在椅子上一刻不离地观看电视上直播的葬礼,没有一个不落泪的。

T:  我认为威廉王子长得很英俊,我希望他将来某一天能够做国王。我想他会成为一个比他父亲更好的国王..

TG:我想大多数人也是这样认为的。不过他得等到他的父亲去世后才能继承王位,就像他父亲也得等到他的母亲去世后一样。
